WHY DO WE GRIEVE ANYWAY?  WE GRIEVE BECAUSE WE LOVED.

Grieving is not a disease. It is a necessity that follows no linear pattern. Grief coaching, an untapped non-therapeutic paradigm, shifts the perspective that grief is an illness that needs to be treated, fixed, or cured. Instead, it empowers individuals to open themselves up to allow the normal and natural responses to loss … giving themselves permission to grieve. Thereafter, helping them to navigate through and thrive in their own personal sense of new normalcy. Grief coaching does not infer, provide, or replace professional counseling, therapy, or mental health services.


Our mission is to educate on the misunderstood and often avoided sensitive topic of grief; train and certify professional grief coaches to help individuals move from pain to peace, heartbreak to happiness, and grief to gratitude in the shortest time possible; and, to help organizations create compassionate and grief-informed workplace cultures.

"Unlike group therapy, peer-led groups are not managed by a mental health professional. Instead, they’re led by people who have faced challenges the group members are also experiencing.


After her mother died many years ago, Barri Leiner Grant, 56, a certified grief coach in Chicago, played host to a group event for motherless daughters. “I realized that we don’t ‘get over’ grief; we learn to live with the loss,” Grant says. Recognizing the need for more support, Grant was inspired to start “the Memory Circle,” a grief group for anyone coping with loss."

"With therapists in short supply, group counseling offers alternative."

Death is an equal opportunity event that will directly or indirectly affect every individual, community, or organization at some point. The more we know about grief, what it is, and why we grieve, the better we are able to deal with the inevitable occasion of loss. We don’t treat, fix, or cure grief. We do educate and support on this sensitive experience that is unique to each of us.
