Creative habits to relieve stress

10 things you can do in the next 30 days


There are times in our lives when we feel life has plowed us under. Not only are we stuck, we feel like our lives are over. We feel like we’ve been buried. I know. I’ve been there.

But, what if this is just the beginning? What if, like a seed, with care, time, and patience, we emerge anew? We are not just back to our old selves and our old life. But, we are a new creation. We are better than before.

I help people who have suffered tragedy or feel buried for any reason to live the life of their dreams through shifting perspectives on their life and their circumstances. There’s a part of yourself that will tell you you are not good enough, that you can’t possibly be happy until… you get that job, you get married, you retire, whatever.

But, those are lies. You can choose to be happy now, with a simple shift of perspective. And, I am here to help you do just that.

Until a seed is planted in the soil and dies, it remains alone. But its death will produce many plants—a plentiful harvest of new lives.

John 12:24- Brian’s Translation

certified grief educator

I conceived Grief 2 Growth when I realized that a lifetime of experiences had led me to the point where I have wisdom that can be of benefit to others. I’ve learned what works. I’ve learned what doesn’t work. I’ve developed techniques and discovered resources that I want to share with the world. We learn by experience. Usually, it’s our own experience. But, one of the great things about being human is we can learn through other people’s experiences.

At my age, I’ve been through good times and many hardships. The hard times I have had have led to the most considerable growth. Those times when I thought I had been buried, I had actually been planted. It’s through those difficulties that wisdom is acquired. That wisdom leads to transformation.

Usually, people who reach out to me have this in common have this thing in common. They feel “stuck.” Their lives are out of balance, and they feel like they are no longer going forward. These difficulties are prompting them into transformation. I am here to help you make that transformation.

Dad's 70th Birthday - 19

After 57 years of experience and almost that much time helping and leading people informally, I decided to make it official, obtain my life coaching certification, and seek to help people more formally.  I’ve had a career as an engineer, corporate tech sales, and as a small business owner of a business, I built from the ground up. I’ve raised two children. I’ve experienced the death of a child. I’ve been married for nearly thirty years. More importantly, I have a passion for helping people. Grief 2 Growth is a natural progression of my time on this planet.

Things I Can Help With
  • Grief

    Believe it or not, grief is a natural part of life and something we often get through/past/over without assistance. But, complicated grief which can come from an unexpected death such as the death of a child can leave us feeling devastated and lost. In this case, we often need someone to talk to and to guide us through what seems to be a never-ending and impossible situation. Having survived the passing of my daughter, I am somewhat of an expert on grief and how not only to survive but to thrive.

  • Entrepreneurship

    Do you own your own business? Are you thinking about starting one? Do you need ideas or some guidance in areas of your business? Having made a couple of career transitions myself from engineering to sales to ownership of an online retail company, to a life-coaching practice, I have had to master all aspects of running a business. I’d be happy to help guide you and perhaps even take some tasks off of your plate.

  • Mental, Emotional & Spiritual Health

    How mentally, emotionally, and spiritually strong are you? Do you nourish your spirit? Do you regularly invest time in developing yourself spiritually? Do you feel in control of your emotions or are your emotions in control of you?
