Meet The Body Grief Coach

About Me

Welcome to The Body Grief Coach, a space where healing is embraced, struggles are understood, and transformation is ignited. I am your companion on this journey towards wellness, offering compassionate guidance based on a deep understanding of life's intricate challenges.​

 

My Journey, My Mission

 

My own lived experience with madness, trauma, disability, chronic pain and illness is what led me to become The Body Grief Coach. Through my personal journey, I discovered the power of holistic healing for the mind, body, and soul. My coaching practice is built on this foundation, and I strive to create a supportive and compassionate space where individuals can explore their experiences. I believe that everyone has the ability to heal, grow, and thrive, and I am honored to support individuals on their own journeys.

Guiding You Through Healing

I believe that healing involves addressing the whole person: mind, body, and soul. I use a holistic approach to coaching that focuses on embodied wellness and yoga techniques to guide people through their healing journey. Trauma and grief can manifest in the body, so I utilize compassionate coaching, gentle movement, and mindfulness techniques to aid in the healing process. My approach is rooted in harm reduction, body liberation, and disability justice, ensuring that everyone can access the support they need for their unique journey.

A Personal Commitment

At The Body Grief Coach, my commitment is to provide a space that is compassionate, non-judgmental, supportive, honest, and loving. My practice is rooted in harm reduction, disability justice, and body liberation, approaching every person with a holistic lens that acknowledges we are so much more than our labels and we are our own experts. My goal is to meet people where they are at and not leave them there, working together to move forward and create the change they seek.

More Than Certifications


I bring a unique perspective to my coaching that goes beyond just certifications. My own personal experiences with madness, trauma, substance use, and an eating disorder give me a profound understanding of the struggles we all endure and the need for compassionate care. Additionally, the complexities of disability, chronic pain and illness have been part of my path, allowing me to truly empathize with folks I work with and provide the support they need to move forward.

Creating a Safe Haven


I am here to help you create a safe and supportive environment where you can explore your emotions and needs while feeling heard and understood. Together, we will uncover your path to healing and help you find what true wellness means to you. With a range of coaching techniques and tools, you can expect to rediscover your strength and resilience as we work towards your goals.

Your Ally in Progress


I am here to help you heal and grow. Your progress, victories, and even setbacks are all important steps on the path we navigate together. With empathy and a deep passion for your wellbeing, I will be your steady presence, your confidant, and your ally as we work towards your goals.
