“Loss and grief will one day bring us all to our knees. Who knew? Our culture gives us few signs along this pathway we never planned for… until now. The Hollowed Heart is a gentle and reverential gift to the heartbroken seeker. Who knew I would need to Reframe My Experience and become my Own, Best Coach? Who knew I would be able to Rest in the Unknown? Such gifts of hope and thoughtfulness from those who have traveled their own road of loss resonate deeply with one who is thrust into this journey. The beautiful cover of this book resonates with my spirit and compels me to enter. Thank you for tenderly touching the reader and helping us shift into a new day.”

She is also offering caring conversations to families that will enable them to think about the service they would like when public gatherings are available in the future.
Grief is all around us as we collectively and individually face the losses related to this pandemic. Everything has changed. Making meaning as these traumatic events continue to unfold is very difficult. With gentleness and care, Deb is listening to the needs of those who mourn and supporting the process of being present to fresh grief. Learn more...

Working with Deb
There was healing kindness within her silence, between and among her words. She followed my lead, guiding me gently toward connection allowing me to celebrate my memories and live fully within the sadness of my loss. She helped me. My heart opened around her in a unique and unguarded manner.
It was with the utmost gratitude and highest respect that I recommend her to anyone who is working to grow within and ultimately beyond grief.”
