You're striving for feelings born from perfect days...


...But maybe your loss has shattered how you thought life would, could, or even should be.​​ 

​Whether you're grieving the death of a loved one, making sense of a divorce or breakup, frustrated about how your dreams turned out,

It gets really tough sometimes, no matter if it's been hours, days, months or years.

Perhaps the hardest part for you right now is...

  • feeling alone, empty and isolated
  • wishing more people knew how tough this really is
  • feeling like everything you've worked for comes to nothing
  • the sheer exhaustion of managing, understanding, and learning about grief
  • __[fill in the blank]___


While I cannot imagine how hard it's been for you in your unique pain and unique situation...

Trust me, friend, I get how intense grief can be from my own personal stories of grief.

Now I’ve developed some key beliefs along the way:

  • I believe it's okay to feel like it's not okay...

  • Not only can you create meaningful ways to survive the pain, but when/if you're ready, you have the power to create a profound life to thrive even when it still hurts

  • I believe humour with unicorns, unicorn cats & magic monkeys is exactly what we need sometimes through the darkest times...

Wherever you are in your journey, I'm glad you're here.
