Hello, I’m Kathy, and I’d like to share a bit about myself and my journey into becoming a grief coach, a role profoundly shaped by personal loss and a deep commitment to supporting others. In 2014, my world was irrevocably altered when I lost my beloved six-year-old son, Trevor. This life-changing event plunged me and my family into profound grief, revealing the stark lack of resources and understanding available for navigating the unique pain of child loss. These experiences drove me to promise myself that I would seek to understand mental health, trauma, and loss more deeply, to offer the support and understanding that were so absent in our own time of need.

Embarking on this path required confronting my unresolved grief and trauma, leading me to explore various healing modalities, including energy medicine, journaling, grief counseling, and mindfulness. My commitment to healing took on new urgency after a subsequent battle with breast cancer, a challenge I suspect was exacerbated by the unprocessed grief and stress following Trevor's death. This stark realization underscored the profound interconnectedness of physical health and unresolved emotional trauma.

My academic journey in mental health, grief, and trauma was further catalyzed by a corporate layoff, turning a potential setback into the opportunity to pursue my true passion and purpose. I earned my Master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and immersed myself in training across numerous trauma-informed modalities, such as EMDR, anxiety management, the FLASH technique, the 4 Blinks method, and hypnosis, equipping me with a comprehensive understanding of how to facilitate healing and growth.

My professional certifications in grief, trauma, magnetic mind coaching, and hypnosis, along with a Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, showcase a wide-ranging and profound dedication to assisting individuals through their grief with empathy, expertise, and innovation. The methodologies and insights I incorporate into my coaching are inspired by the teachings of world-renowned experts in grief movement and education, whose pioneering work has significantly influenced the development of effective support strategies.

Today, as a grief coach, my mission is clear: to provide unwavering support for those navigating the multifaceted challenges of loss and grief. I aim to create a safe space where individuals can find solace, growth, and hope on their path to healing. My approach is rooted in the belief that healing is a continuous journey, with each step marking progress towards emotional resilience, self-discovery, and a brighter, more fulfilling future.

Thank you for taking the time to learn about my journey and my dedication to helping you on your path toward healing and recovery. Together, we can navigate grief’s rocky terrain with compassion, education, and the shared goal of transformative growth.
