If you are grieving the loss of a loved one and feel that the pain will never go away, you are not alone. Our certified grief coaches have walked the walk and can help you move from pain to peace, heartbreak to happiness, and grief to gratitude in the shortest time possible.

Your grief journey is unique to you, but you don’t have to grieve alone. Lots of useful information is available online to help you cope with your grief, but sometimes you desire more. You desire someone to talk to without telling you what you should or should not do to feel better. You desire someone to listen without trying to fix you or your grief. You desire a non-judgmental, caring person to share your unique concerns in private. You desire someone to chat with by telephone in the privacy and comfort of your own home. You desire to talk to someone other than your family or close friends, who are trying to help but say all the wrong things. You desire a virtual shoulder to cry on and a virtual ear to simply listen. You prefer to meet with someone one-on-one instead of a group support setting. You are looking for another option to professional counseling or therapy. Our compassionate, empathetic certified grief coaches are here to journey with you as you navigate this wilderness of grief. 

Our grief coaches will help you pull from your inner strength with powerful, effective coaching tools and exercises to reduce the grief-related pain, fear, stress, and anxiety and propel you forward to a fulfilled life of meaning and purpose. We won’t try to fix you… You are not broken. We won’t try to heal you… You are not sick. We won’t judge you… You are not to be judged. We won’t tell you what to do… We will help you take forward-moving action. We won’t push or pull you… We will journey beside you. When you work with one of our featured certified grief coaches, you get the best results, the biggest breakthroughs, and the greatest transformations.

Staci Hufty

Columbus, Indiana

Murder. It’s sudden. It’s traumatic. It’s devastating. It brings you to unbearable grief. We are not taught about grief. We are not taught how to grieve. We are not equipped to know what to do when sudden traumatic loss enters our life. We are not prepared.

He wasn't just my beloved husband of 40 years, but a father, grandfather, and my pastor. Not just surviving many losses, but learning to thrive even after surviving breast cancer a year after losing my dear husband. "Assauge Allay" means "Pain Diminished."

After the death of my husband from an illness lasting over 18 years, I realized, I no longer knew what my purpose going forward was to be. My journey has allowed me to create new possibilities for myself and light a passion in me to help others .

I feel like my whole life has been preparing me for the opportunity to help people through coaching. Two significant life experiences leading me in that direction were the death of my mom and unexpected death of my husband. I empower clients who are facing loss.

I developed Hope’s Dwelling, a life, grief, and crisis coaching business as a result of my own personal grief. After the loss of my father I have been drawn to helping others in their grief recovery journey, knowing personally what it is like to live without someone important to you.

Grief is not limited to the loss of a loved one.  As Founder of Infidelity Hurts Awareness Day, I work with women who are experiencing the silent grief of infidelity and divorce. Don't just survive this painful event, but thrive beyond it.  Together we can and together we will.
