Questions for the reader and griever:

  • Who are you going to be carrying forward with you?

Curating Grief Coaching Package

How do you want to remember your loved one, now and in the future? With my Curating Grief framework, I combine my grief coaching and curatorial skills to help you process your loss in a creative way.



I'm Charlene

I help grieving people feeling burdened by responsibilities, resentments and regrets after the death of a loved one to feel lighter –– so you can live your own fullest life. 

After the sudden death of my mother Marilyn in 2013, I put my life, work and grief on hold as I struggled to deal with the estate, paperwork and belongings.

Healing took time -- and it took help.

I'm a certified grief coach, and I developed my Curating Grief framework to help people process grief in a creative, accessible way.
