Creative Grief Coaching
Why Grief Coaching?
When you’re feeling burdened by all the responsibilities of the estate, the paperwork and everyone else’s well-being.
When you’re wondering when you’ll actually get to grieve.
When you need to unload about what your brother, sister, aunt or other parent is doing or not doing.
When you want to just be sad, mad or whatever you’re feeling today without judgment and without having to worry about hurting someone else’s feelings.
When you’ve tried therapy and you’ve gotten to functioning, but you want to actually feel better.
Grief coaching can help you get from just surviving to thriving.
Originally from NYC and currently based in Lisbon, Portugal, I work with clients worldwide via Zoom.

I get more aha's from you than my therapist!
It's felt like an impossible task to try to sort through my mom's belongings. I feel like I have a place to begin this process now and it doesn't feel so terrifying. Thank you.
I love this approach as a creative outlet for grief - I'm totally inspired.
MY UNIQUE APPROACH
Curating Grief After Loss
Curating Grief™ is the name of my unique approach to grief support. Why "curate" grief? Find out in this video.
I help grieving people feeling burdened by responsibilities, resentments and regrets after the death of a loved one to feel lighter.
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, tapping into the power of creativity and in particular curating as a way to guide us through grief after significant loss.
As curator of The Grief Gallery, I present exhibitions internationally online and in-person about grief and loss, often featuring the belongings of people’s lost loved ones.
I believes we are ALL curators after a loved one dies.
The Curating Grief coaching package is the creative way to navigate practical and emotional challenges after loss so you can feel connected with your loved one and move forward with living your own fullest life.
I’m the author of the forthcoming book Curating Grief: A Creative Guide to Choosing What to Keep After a Loved One Dies.
A proud New Yorker, I’m based in Lisbon, Portugal and work with clients worldwide.
