My journey as a Grief Coach and Chaplain began sometime after the loss of my daughter on May 9, 2002. It was the longest day of the year and the worst day of my life. Eventually, I leaned into my grief and allowed the pain to transform my life. Now, I help clients to navigate the painful emotions of losing a loved one, get on top of their grief, and move forward in life with meaning and purpose. I offer a safe space to grieve and, with tools and resources, combined with my background in theology, education, and grief coaching, supports you to evolve and transform your loss.
My professional practice of caring for people spans over 5 years. I motivate and initiate meaningful use of each individual beliefs and attitudes in the management of life-altering changes. My role is supportive, serving as a guide to support those elements of care that would help maximize the whole person.
My professional training and life experiences with multiple losses provide me with the expert knowledge to support and journey with you to find meaning and purpose in your life after the death of a loved one. I offer a safe space for you to grieve and transition without judgment or fixing. My coaching approach will help you find hope and meaning in your life going forward.
After going through the sessions with Althea, I have learned to deal with my pain and move forward with my life. Although I was reluctant to continue after my first session, I later learned how to channel my grief, and now I look forward to what life has to offer.
During our sessions, she introduced me to a book called 'Feel the fear and do it anyway' This resource also helped to retrain my mind, giving me a more positive outlook on life. After completing my grief coaching sessions with Althea, I changed my job, went back to school, and now I'm feeling a brand new sense of purpose. I would highly recommend Althea to anyone dealing with grief and who needs help to get through it.
