I wrote Grief Ally for anyone who wants to show up to help someone they love after a heartbreaking loss.
GRIEF ALLY IS AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE
When you hear that your best friend, partner, sibling – your person – has lost someone that they love you’re going to be shocked. You’re going to panic. You’re going to want to do everything that you can to help them with the pain that you know they are experiencing. Unfortunately, despite your best intentions, a misplaced gesture or word can have serious consequences.
Drawing from first-hand experience and therapeutic practices, Grief Ally will teach you essential life skills that everyone will, unfortunately, need at some point in their life: how to console a grieving loved one. It’s written for friends and family members who want to support a loved one suffering a loss that they never wanted or expected. And with a flexible approach that anyone can learn and practice, there’s no excuse for you to be terrible at grief support.
Grief Ally is the answer we’re all looking for when someone dies and we’re left asking “What do I do?” and “How do I help?”

I have been working with people around the globe for the last ten years to better process their grief. Aly’s contribution will provide immeasurable value to those who want to help their loved one who is grieving.
Most grief books are written to and for folks who are grieving. And I don’t know about you, but I find it hard to read about grief while I’m simultaneously swirling in the drain of it. This is why I’ve fallen in love with, Grief Ally. At long last, we have a grief book for those you aren’t grieving— for those who love a person who’s grieving, for those who want to truly show up, for those who don’t know the right thing to say or do and are looking or a better option than handing a person a book about their own grieving whilst saying, “Everything happens for a reason.” Aly’s voice and guidance for those who want to know how to best love and support those who are grieving is clear, kind and easy to follow. Grief Ally is a much-needed and long awaited addition to the genre.
Shared from first hand experience, Aly skillfully guides us through what it means to be an impactful, supportive Grief Ally. A job none of us sign up for, but when done right, makes all the difference in the world.
Aly has always been my person but I never expected our lives to be so true to the plot of Meredith Grey and Cristina Yang. If this book had existed in November 2019 I would have bought 20 copies and shared them like candy with her support network. Believe me, there isn’t a resource out there that’s written for friends like me who want help when life gets turned upside down.
Grief finds us all eventually, and yet, as a culture, we’re not great at supporting one another through the darkest hours. We say the wrong things, or worse, we say nothing and disappear. Aly has created THE guidebook for how to support someone who’s grieving — beyond casseroles and Hallmark cards. With tenderness and empathy, Aly teaches us how to be courageous and show up for grieving loved ones, even when it’s messy and uncomfortable. She’s given us the roadmap to a destination we’ll all visit someday.
I just finished Aly’s book, and I was blown away at her ability to explain how to support a grieving loved one. Many of you ask me what you can do when someone is grieving, so here’s my recommendation, READ THIS BOOK!
I also found myself in tears at some points in the book because I lost a few close friends over the grief of my friend and father. This book made me realize I wasn’t asking for too much. I was surviving. It added so much more hurt, which was SO preventable. Despite that, some people could hold me up while I figured my shit out, and I am forever grateful for them. I loved this book so much. ❤️
