Amy Marie offers coaching that is unique to your situation. Living with the loss of her mother in her early twenties and recently becoming a motherless mother, she has been unfortunately reminded how society still has a lot of work to do in the grief space.
She realized during her journey that motherless mothers need more support before and after the delivery of their baby. OBGYNs and Pediatricians need more education on communicating with their patients who are in grief and dealing with loss. This journey led her to coaching about grief.
Amy is an ICF-certified grief coach, certified substance abuse counselor-assistant (CSAC-A), and a graduate of George Mason University in Organizational Health Management. She is a graduate of Dora Carpenter’s From Grief to Gratitude Coach Certification Program IOPGC. In addition, she has graduated from the Grief Training program for mental health professionals and coaches with an emphasis on mother loss. She has also volunteered for Hope Edelman’s book launch of “The After Grief” about the long arch of grief. Amy’s work has been featured in Washington City Paper and is a guest contributor on blogs about grief and loss.
Amy is a featured coach on the From Grief to Gratitude website.
