In the wake of Charlottesville I felt compelled to write an open letter to well-intentioned White folks about how White guilt and grief perpetuates racism.

Not just today, or tomorrow, but every single day for the rest of our lives.

Before the death of my mom I had no clue what a grief coach was, but as soon as I heard about it, I knew it was something I needed to explore – and ultimately become. A grief coach is someone specifically dedicated to helping you navigate your own unique and personalized way through loss and grief. Unlike a therapist or counselor, a grief coach focuses not only on the finite, daily issues that are coming up for you but also the high-level, future-forward life map for how you can best overcome the pain associated with loss and turn an otherwise shitty experience into an event that will propel your life forward – for the better.

Ain't nobody wanna be carrying that ish into 2017.
