For the griever who desires to ignite the power within to turn her tragedy into an opportunity for transformation, reach her full potential and find her purpose in this precious lifetime.
I’m so sorry for the loss that brought you here, but glad you found this community. Although you had no choice in your person’s death, you do have a choice in how you CHOOSE to move forward.
You can allow grief to trap you — fighting your feelings and reality, which only adds suffering and pain to your hardship. Or, you can allow grief to transform you — flowing with your feelings and surrendering to your new normal, in attempts to seek the lessons, embrace the redirects, and create meaning from your loss.
My work is about the latter.
I believe that grief is a portal to purpose and that with the right mindset, guidance and community you can integrate this tragedy as a vehicle for expansive personal transformation and invitation to discover your truth.
I would be honored to serve as your guide!
Grief can TRANSFORM us!
(If we allow it)
Ever heard of post-traumatic growth?
Yes, it’s a real thing — you can actually GROW in beautiful, profound ways from moving thru this seemingly impossible experience. While you can’t bring your person back and it feels like you’ve lost everything — it’s in this place of total loss and uncertainty that you are forced to stretch and grow, invited to question everything you know about life, meet yourself at your essence, and finally realize that you have the freedom to create whatever life you want!
Here’s a snapshot of what you will gain from this group-guided journey:
Understand why you feel the way you do and recognize the importance of openly feeling your feelings and processing your loss, to flow instead of fight your emotions.
⚡️ FIND CONNECTION AND SUPPORT
Grief needs to be witnessed. Your loss matters. Share your pain and your struggles with a community who “gets it” and truly understands. No judgements, just love and compassion.
⚡️OWN YOUR GRIEVING STYLE
Explore effective coping mechanisms and strategies to make space for grief and release it so that you can operate in a calm, curious and connected state of being.
⚡️MOVE TO GET UNSTUCK
Get access to the MOVE Forward from loss online course and learn how to use exercise as a powerful tool to break the negative thought cycle that can trap us in grief.
⚡️DISCOVER MEANING IN LOSS
Let go of societal perceptions surrounding hardship, tragedy and struggle that only add to our suffering, and create your own meaning in loss.
With a significant loss, comes the loss of shared dreams, future plans and our identity. Rediscover your identity by unearthing your inherent gifts, celebrating your strengths and following your excitement.
⚡️ CREATE A FUTURE VISION
Design a future that you're absolutely crazy about! One that honors your loved one's legacy, aligns with your truth, and brings meaning and fulfillment to your life.
So that you can expand into your highest self and life each day with joy, purpose, excitement and deep meaning.
There will be 12 LIVE sessions and 10 pre-recorded trainings, along with session notes and journal prompts for participants to complete before each live session.
All sessions take place via ZOOM and begin the last week of September!
Participants also get 3 BONUS Guest speaker workshops to deepen their exploration of somatic practices to cope with grief, identity work and living a life of purpose.
In this intimate group setting (12 people max) we will:
💛 witness each other’s grief
💛 hold each other accountable
💛 provide motivation and loving support
💛 explore tools and topics outlined below!
Once enrolled, participants also get access to my MOVE THRU GRIEF Online Course, which we will reference and use to help us embrace grief over the 12-week timespan.
HERE’S AN OVERVIEW OF THE CONTENT COVERED
MONTH ONE: EMBRACE GRIEF
The first four weeks are dedicated emotional mastery. Learn how to regulate your nervous system with coping tools & strategies, release guilt, and listen to the wisdom of your feelings & emotions. We will also look beneath the surface at old wounds and subconscious beliefs that are blocking you from integrating your experience of loss.
MONTH TWO: INTEGRATION & GROWTH
Learn how to grow alongside your grief as you grieve what was, accept what is, and courageously create what will be. Consider this month your guide to navigating life after loss! We will cover how to create boundaries and support systems, survive big grief milestones, adapt to secondary losses, hold duality and foster resilience with powerful mindset shifts and reframes. This is where the transformation begins!
MONTH THREE: MOVING FOWARD WITH MEANING
Our final month together focuses on the emotionally reinvesting in this new reality without your loved one. Through guest speaker workshops and trainings on identity & purpose, we will explore who you are (now) and what you want out of life moving forward. We will dream again -- with courage and imagination -- as we create a vision for your future that you're genuinely excited about.
I developed my 12-Week Guided Group Journey outlined above, along with The moveTHRU METHOD (used in my online course), drawing from the principles of Acceptance & Commitment Theory, Positive Psychology, the TEAR Model of Grief, and grief coaching courses I’ve completed (The Institute for Life Coach Training and David Kessler’s Grief Educator Certification) , as well as my personal grief journey.
My goal is to support and empower anyone grieving by providing them with tips, tool, and guidance that helped me and community who understands.
Sometimes it takes someone else who has walked the path before you to help you step into a place of empowerment to move forward. That's why I created this expansive program and inspiring community.
You don't have to walk this path alone.
In fact, I believe that my soul's purpose is to provide you with the guidance, tools, education and loving support to help you collapse time around your suffering and expedite your growth to experience more love, joy and meaning on your path to purpose.

Karen, Growing THRU Grief
When I began my journey with moveTHRU grief it had been about 7 months since my husband died. Up until this point I was just surviving by “avoiding” any emotions and finding things to fill the void he left behind. My heart was aching as the reality of the permanency of his death was setting in and the “shock” was wearing off. I knew I needed to get some help from the outside to help me navigate through my grief and these emotions I had been trying so hard to avoid.
I had come across a few courses but Emily’s caught my eye the most because of the fitness aspect. Working out was already a part of my daily routine so I thought it would be a good fit. And it was! Through the course I learned how to really feel my emotions, lean into and sit in them, allow them to come in and move through me. Most importantly my feelings were validated not only by Emily but everyone in our group.
I still use the tools I learned through the course and guided workouts and apply them when I go for a run or strength train. I highly recommend moveTHRU Grief course and group.
Even if you don’t like to workout, if you are afraid or intimidated by the idea of being on live coaching calls, I want to encourage you to take that leap today. You are not alone but surrounded by Emily and others who are walking in the same space as you are right now. This course is truly one of a kind. Created by a compassionate understanding kind person who has a heart that wants to motivate and teach you how thrive and grow stronger as you move forward in your grief.
“I started the 12-Week Guided Group Grief Journey three years after my husband’s sudden, traumatic death. I felt stuck, sad, lonely and anxious and I had reached a plateau in my progression with my grief counselor. I knew an important missing piece for processing my grief was sharing and witnessing grief with other widows and widowers who experienced similar life-changing devastation…but I was unable to find such a group, until I met Emily.
During my initial conversation with Emily, I felt her compassion and empathy for my experience with my loss. After she described her program to me, I knew it was the missing piece I’d been searching for in my grief journey. The group proved to incorporate everything Emily described: modules focusing on the emotions and feelings that arise from grief (anger, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, sadness…) which allowed me to examine and process feelings I was suppressing; guest speakers guided me to a deeper understanding about figuring out my enneagram type (this was amazing!); finding effective ways to process trauma (so important for me!); understanding my purpose and creating a new vision for my life without my husband (critical!)
Emily’s weekly reflection questions/prompts provided invaluable guided examination into a wide variety of grief topics dedicated time for sharing with the other members in the group allowed for compassionate dialogue and support.
I felt supported by Emily and the members in the group to share my story in a safe space. I shared my traumatic experience, my emotional struggles and my external stressors (all of which I’m not often comfortable sharing in a group setting). I am still moving through my grief, but I am no longer ‘stuck’…I now have additional tools and strategies to help me move forward. For the first time in over 3 years, I am feeling ready to open my heart to new experiences and I am excited for the next chapter in my life!
I highly recommend this wonderful group…it has been life-changing for me! One of the most important things I learned is to allow ALL of the feelings in as they come (even the uncomfortable ones), to acknowledge them and to move through them – Emily will meet you where you are and will help you to figure out how to do it, it’s amazing!”
“When I started Emily’s moveTHRU Group Grief Journey my husband had been gone for 7.5 months. I had a lot of anxiety about moving forward and a lot of guilt when I would go and do things, especially with family. Exhaustion was also a huge struggle.
I joined the group because I knew that I was struggling and did not know how or what to do to even take a step forward with my life. Also, my sister encouraged me to join, even though I was extremely anxious sharing my story.
The biggest breakthrough I had was when I was journaling / answering a question that Emily provided during a session and I wrote out what it meant for me to move forward. I had told myself that he would want me to be happy and move forward, but something about writing it out was so helpful in fully understanding and accepting what it meant for me — knowing it would honor him to move forward…even it was baby steps. I have reminded myself many times that moving forward does not mean moving on, and this has been HUGE in my grief journey.
I also realized that most of my exhaustion came from not being able to process what I was feeling. This journey has taught me that it is okay to sit with my emotions and that moving my body in any form also helps process them (especially the sad/hurt ones).
If I were to give advice to anyone thinking about joining this group I would say to TAKE THE LEAP! I am not a very open person, especially with discussing my feelings. Joining this group there was never any pressure to speak and share. However, the comfort of having others who share made it so easy to open and share when I felt like I could. Being surrounding by others in a time of so much hurt and heartache gave me a sense of normalcy.”
“Like anyone that decides to join a grief group, I live with profound loss. My husband John was diagnosed on 12/30/2019 with ALS and passed away on 8/21/2021.
Well that brings me to Emily’s grief group.
Emily is pretty amazing. She somehow, despite her own profound loss manages to show you that life is meant to be lived.
Our grief group started on 9/1/2021. For some people that might be too tight but for me after 19.5 months of anticipatory grief I was ready. Quickly, I met a group of people who actually understood my loss. No one judged, everyone just came to this group with an open heart.
For some strange reason within this group, I felt like I could speak, I didn’t need to be someone I wasn’t. Emily gave us tools, workshops, modules to work through on our own and with each one and each week I just learned more about myself and I got a little bit stronger.
A twelve week grief group can’t make it all go away, but Emily gave me a platform and a tool box to open up whenever I just need a little help. Now we are at the holidays, so there is no question my box of tools is wide open, and I am grateful for the box!
Grief is so hard, but I have learned through this group that grief and love go hand in hand. Without grief there is no love and if you want to have a life filled with love you will have grief. Emily is not a therapist, she is a coach, she listens, she speaks, but mostly she helps you to find your way and to understand that together we can move through our grief and we can continue to live our lives. I don’t know where I would be without Emily and without this group that I now consider my friends. From the bottom of my heart, Emily, I thank you!”
“When I joined Emily’s moveTHRU Guided Grief Group Journey, I had passed the 14th month after my husband died (following his 14 month journey through cancer). I had “made it through” the 1st year, as difficult as it was, and was feeling less numb but more aware of my deep sadness, loneliness and some continued anxiety.
I made the decision to join this group because I had been helped with some individual counseling but I felt the need to connect to people who truly understood this level of loss. I also had already begun to recognize the benefit moving my body had on improving my mood, anxiety, and ability to process my grief. I appreciated that Emily was a fellow widow, the fact that the group was not too large, and that we would have ongoing access to all the resources.
During this group experience, I gained so much support from sharing my story, hearing others stories, and learning that each story is different, but each needs to be heard(not fixed). It was a safe, supportive space where I learned to acknowledge my emotions, name them, and continue to move in/through them.
I am glad I participated in this group since I felt Emily provided genuine, compassionate support with lots of amazing resources. I will forever be grateful to Emily and the members of my group for the time we shared during this challenging part of our life stories.”
“I saw Emily on TikTok and started following her after my losses. I had four major losses in five months including my husband, Emily has truly helped me to understand my grief. Grief is life changing and understanding my grief is paramount to my healing.
She has helped me tremendously on learning how to take my loved ones with me as I move through my grief. I know they will always be with me and know how to honor them while taking steps forward. She has also shown me how important movement is to make sure my grief does not get stuck in my body.
Emily helps you to be curious of your emotions which helps you learn more about your own self. The biggest takeaway was finding more of myself in this program as we learned more about our personalities! That was life changing for me on how I viewed myself and my grieving.
I highly recommend her program! She has been worth every penny spent on helping with my grief. I feel so supported by her even after group is done.”
“[Since joining the group] I’m more comfortable with understanding it’s ok to still grieve even 4 plus years later. Previously I felt like I should be over this and I realize I never will to some degree and its ok to feel this way. I wish I could have found a group like this quicker. I know I would have been at a better place sooner.”

In addition to the videos content, I also created downloadable PDF’s that you can easily access as a quick guide to move THRU each emotion. If you feel an emotion coming up for you, instead of revisiting all of the content in the course, you can download these guides to quickly find:
– Mindset mantras to help reframe difficult situations

Losing my husband has been the worst and the best thing that has happened to me in my life. If these feels triggering to you, it should. It's hard for our mind to hold this duality, yet for me, both statements can be true.
My tragedy guided me to my truth ... which is helping others navigating hardship move thru grief to find theirs. I believe that grief is a portal to purpose and despite the feelings of powerlessness that come from devastating loss, you still have a choice...
To allow tragedy to TRAP you or to let it TRANSFORM you.
