Grief Coaching


Eydie Stumpf, Grief Coach, NLP, Widows, WidowersHi!  I’m Eydie and I’ve been where you are now. I’ve FELT your pain. I KNOW your hurt. I RECOGNIZE the hole in your heart. And I UNDERSTAND your journey. For me, journaling, and adult coloring, were amazing healing tools that I used during my recovery from grief, and now I’d love to help you through your recovery.

As someone who has “been there, done that”, I understand that you NEED to tell your grief story over and over and over again. Family and friends soon tire of listening to you, but you’re still not ready to stop telling your story.

During our meetings journaling and coloring will play a part, however, more important than the writing… is the telling. You will be free to tell your grief story over and over until you begin to feel some peace inside your heart. Because until you feel that you’ve found what you need to find; until whatever pain and fears you have bottled up inside have been quieted, you will never release the grief.

Write the words down so that the pain has somewhere to go.

Journaling and Coloring has the power to:

  • Allow you to grieve creatively.
  • Reflect upon the events which brought you your grief
  • Increase awareness of your feelings.
  • Eventually accept the loss, move forward and heal….and find your “new normal”.

Writing down your feelings and thoughts aids in reflection, exploration and discovery of who you are now and who you strive to become – because, as you already know, when you experience the death of a spouse, you change inside.

Journaling becomes a tool for expressing sadness, pain, heartache, fears and challenges. It also allows you to celebrate the good things in your life – past and present – and even the future. Journaling helps you to find your “new normal”.

Coloring helps you to relax and release the stress and tension you have been building up in your body. It allows your brain to declutter itself so that you’re open to new ways of looking at your life.

The healing journey is a rough road. Having someone walk along side of you can make it smoother.  

Please know that if you are not comfortable with journaling, 
you don't have to.You can share your grief story with me, 
and I'll listen. You don't have to do this alone.

Along with talking with a grief coach, writing WILL bring peace to your heart.
Are you ready to begin your new journey?
Are you open to finding your “new normal”?


 There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love. Washington Irving
Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary. The people we trust with that important talk can help us know that we are not alone.”  Fred Rogers

The grieving process takes time, and it takes a lot of hard work on your part. You should never go through it by yourself.  Working with someone who knows your pain first hand will allow you to feel comfortable and ready to let go of your hurt.
