It takes courage to grieve. Compassion will see you through it.

Grief Coaching


Any loss can bring about grief. Loss of a loved one, a job, status, the hope for a particular future...


Loss, and in turn, grief can take a toll on our heart, mind and our physical body. Each individual has the ability to heal, address issues, confront challenges and take action after a loss. Grief coaching brings these attributes to the surface at a time when they may not be apparent to the person struggling with the loss.


Grief Coaching isn’t solely focused on the individual’s improved emotional state, but also involves forging a positive vision for the future and creating strategies for achieving specific life goals with an emphasis on action and accountability. 


Both Matt and Julia are prepared to show you how to walk through your grief, to get to the other side safely and effectively with our 8-session program to freedom. 

Somatic Grief Coaching


Grief not only stems from death, but also loss of any kind.  From personal experience Julia understands how loss and resulting grief manifest in the body.  After being widowed in 2005 to Dean Franco, she became a diligent student of her grief and listening to the grief in the body to help her heal her sorrowful mind.  From there she quit her corporate job and completed her education in massage therapy and grief coaching.  She realized others needed the same healing modalities she used therefor creating Somatic Grief Coaching  

When we experience loss, we experience a heightened emotional state. If we do not work through our grief in a healthy way, emotions may be suppressed, ignored and stored in our body. Many studies have proven that when we suppress our emotions, they can manifest in our body physically as disease. When we are open to releasing emotional baggage, we are open to releasing the physical manifestations of those suppressed emotions. 

Taking an integrative approach to wellness, Somatic Grief Coaching combines both massage and grief coaching in one session accelerating the healing process.
