Transformational Life & Grief Recovery Coach


How It All Started​

Dear Friend,
I want to connect with you on a deeply personal level because if you or someone you care about is going through grief, my heart genuinely goes out to you. The journey through grief is both challenging and transformative. I want you to understand that, based on studies, my experiences helping over 25,000 individuals successfully move through and beyond grief, and my personal journey, there is a pathway to move through and beyond grief completely and safely.

Meeting you is an honor. You might wonder, “Why did I become a certified grief & trauma specialist and life success coach? And why create Dance Away Sadness: Move Beyond Your Grief™?” The answer is rooted in the belief that everyone deserves hope, peace of mind, ease, and joy in living the life they love. Life isn’t always smooth sailing, and equipping ourselves with skills and tools to transform grief, traumas, and failures into victories and thriving, joyful living should be both effortless and fun.

My journey with grief started when I was 5 years old, encompassing childhood trauma, loss of loved ones, illnesses, PTSD, failure, divorce, and more. I embarked on a mission to help myself and others because I firmly believe in the right of every individual to feel hope, at ease, and thrive. Over the years, I’ve learned what partially works, what causes harm, and what truly makes a difference. Understanding the multidimensional nature of grief, I integrate various tools simultaneously, akin to creating a beautiful cake – each ingredient is essential, but the magic happens when they come together in a correct manner.

Trained in grief and trauma recovery, NLP, energy and allopathic medicine, resilience, mindset, and success coaching, I’ve developed the skill to blend these tools effectively. My intuitive nature, personal experience with grief, work in pets and oncology, and over 25 years of helping individuals navigate grief with more ease and confidence enable me to tailor solutions to each unique individual and, as grief can be unpredictable, further adapt them moment-to-moment.

This brings us to Dance Away Sadness: Move Beyond Your Grief.
Grief is an experience that transcends words, affecting not just our emotions but our physical body and overall well-being. It’s energetically stored in our cells. Studies affirm that music and movement individually help release grief, but the magic intensifies when they are combined. Whether you’re grappling with a recent loss or longstanding grief, the fusion of music and free-style movement can unlock deeper release, bringing ease and fun into the process.

In 2010, again facing a series of miseries, I experienced the power of dance when my beloved cat, Roscoe, passed away. He was my boy, best friend, and guardian angel. I was so distraught that I couldn’t get out of bed, but something nudged me to listen to music and start moving even though I never danced before. Through the dance, I found the strength to rise from my grief, lifting the heaviness in my heart and soothing sadness. This discovery led me to develop Dance Away Sadness, a transformative program where freestyle dancing, proper coaching, and music effectively help many release grief, anxiety, depression, anger, and physical discomfort.

Is my life perfect now? Life, as we know, is far from perfect. However, armed with proper support, tools, and techniques, I navigate through grief with more ease, grace, confidence, and promptness. Furthermore, the 5-Fingers Method Daily Practice, born from my experiences, empowers people to thrive through changes with remarkable ease.

You deserve hope, peace of mind, and joy. As Dr. Wayne Dryer beautifully states, “Success and inner peace are your birthright.” Whether you have been suffering for hours or decades, taking the correct actions with the right tools under expert guidance can lead you to prompt results and the peace of mind you desire.
