Hello, Friend!

Jan Mitchell,

Certified Grief & Mindfulness Coach, Author, and Advocate


Grief is a universal experience, yet its manifestations can be varied and unique. My journey through grief began with the loss of my spouse in 2017. Currently, as a caregiver for a parent diagnosed with dementia in 2022, I discovered that grief is not limited to death. The weight of caregiving, the end of relationships, or pivotal life changes like job transitions or remarriage after a loss, can all be sources of grief.


It's essential to recognize and honor our grief. It's okay to not be okay. But it's equally important to know that healing is within reach.


Grieve with intention. Heal forward. Live purposefully.


With you on this journey to healing,

Jan Mitchell
