How grief coaching can change your life

My daughter died of cancer, now what... who am I?


My name is Christina Stiverson.  Six years ago I was totally numb with a fake smile on my face and tears in my heart, but thanks to a tremendous amount of soul searching and relentless grief coaching work, I have completely transformed myself. I’m not the same person I was before my daughter died.  I have reached a place of gratitude for the 3 years and 17 days my daughter was here with us, and I now have a lifetime of inspiration, a new purpose, and more clarity than ever before on how to help others. Years later, my smile is my truth and it's filled with pure appreciation for the gift I was given. 


Here is what I know. My strength and pain is no greater or less than anyone else's.  Every day is not perfect, and there are still tough days, but more than the grief and sadness, I have immense gratitude for my daughter’s life that nobody can ever take away. My life truly is happening FOR me, not to me, and I am living it in a way my daughter would be proud of. I wholeheartedly believe in the potential to lead an extraordinary life empowered by loss and driven by self-discovery.
