Hi, I’m Aly. I’m a coach, author, therapist-in-training, and a widow. My beloved’s death changed everything about me and my life. So much so, that I had to do something about how we treat the bereaved. So I defined Grief Allyship and wrote a book to teach people how to show up and support their grieving loved ones. I’d love to tell you more about me. 


Grief Ally is the only grief book written specifically for the support networks of the bereaved, the people who are asking “what do I do?” and “how do I help?” when someone’s life ends. As the first resource of its kind, Grief Ally will help anyone to climb up the learning curve of grief support faster than has ever been possible.


I offer several services focused on supporting the bereaved and their allies. Take a look at my services page to see how we can work together or if you’re looking for something more specific reach out to me.
