Our Story and How We Can Help

Client Journeys


Ashley Kowarsch

 “I attended The Haven for a widow’s retreat in 2023 after losing my husband unexpectedly. After a year a half of working through my grief in various ways, I was looking to push through some significant areas where I was stuck and found this retreat. The exercises and one-on-one time with Anne-Marie and Ron helped me “turn a corner” in my grief journey and gave me so much hope and permission to find joy in life again. The space at The Haven is peaceful and beautiful and us widows felt loved and catered to throughout the entire time we were there. I wish every widow could have the opportunity to work on their grief and heartbreak in this incredible way. It was the most impactful four days I could have ever imagined.

“This has been a very eye-opening experience!!! I was glad to learn I am not broken or damaged. I’m completely normal. This was hard, but worth it! I was given the tools to clean out all the pain in my heart. That is not to say it won’t come back or happen again, but NOW I have the ability too work through the anger, hurt and pain, and make more room in my heart for future love, joy, and happiness! I’m looking forward to the new memories I plan on making, and getting to know and like and accept the new me. I’m grateful for this amazing opportunity. I was given a lifelong gift, that I will treasure forever. Thank You, and God bless!”

“I could not speak my husband’s name without crying. I loved him so much, was married for 47 years and He died instantly in the next room, unknown. We were the perfect puzzle piece. I found out I was angry, guilty, wanted to tell my husband things before he left and I was being a brat before he passed the last half hour. I couldn’t complete my loss. But now I have!  I did it! He will always be my Man and I will always be his Lady. Thank you!”


Lori T

“As Anne-Marie explained what grief is, it confirmed I had unresolved pain in my life. I felt like I was doing well dealing with one particular (huge) loss, but sometimes my emotions were triggered and I felt sad, upset or other emotions that just never seemed to go away. Since processing one of my biggest losses, I have felt no pain, sadness or anger toward this person. I had put this loss in a box on a shelf, so I didn’t have to see it/feel it, but it needed to come off the shelf and its contents “shredded.” When the process was completed, I felt and continue to have feelings of relief. Anne-Marie is a gentle, kind and loving person; perfect for walking through this process with you. She listens intently and helps you see things you can’t see because you’re too close to the situation. She makes herself available for questions and guidance through the process and is very encouraging, especially when it gets toughest and you need that extra gentle push to get past the most painful part. She is transparent, genuine and open with the details of her own journey, so you never feel alone or abandoned. Anyone considering this program should just do it!! The emotional weight that is lifted is life-changing. It’s that simple. Totally worth it. ”

Shattered by Grief

Shattered by Grief

A beautiful vase is broken into hundreds of little pieces. Everything is shattered. How does one even know where to begin putting it back together? If someone had never seen the vase before, they wouldn’t know what it should look like, so they could have trouble restoring it. Who knows exactly how that vase should look is the craftsman who made it.
