Given a choice between grief and nothing, I’d choose grief.

~ William Faulkner

I appreciate that you’ve taken the time to visit my website.

Grief and loss are issues that we face throughout our lives. But sometimes the lessons they teach us may feel intolerable. We’re often told that time heals all wounds, but that’s not the case. Time gives us an opportunity to learn how to cope, but it doesn’t heal us. While these lessons may be really challenging, to say the least, they do teach us what to value most in life.

I kindly invite you to reach out to me if you have any questions about grief, death, dying and/or end-of-life care planning, or would like to schedule a free consulation, Mourning Meeting or a Presentation.

Please do NOT send private or medical/mental health information as we are committed to your privacy.

For all inquiries, please use this form or email me at agrievingworld(at)

Thank you!

Please note that our previous name, A Grieving World, was changed to A Dying World to reflect the fact that death/dying may feel like a transition while the word “grief” may feel like a lower vibration for those who are sensitive to energies.
