You’re not alone, I’ve been where you are now

I’m a widow myself. I know the pain and devastation that grief and loss can wreck on a survivor and am living proof that you can go from surviving to thriving. I use my story, training and experience to bring healing and freedom to the brokenhearted.

Helping Heal broken hearts

When people ask me what I do, I tell them I mend broken hearts. The pain of losing one you love cannot be truly understood unless you have been through it. It goes to a place deep within you and is often unbearable. I desire to meet people where they are at because I have been there. I know the pain. I know the heartbreak. I get you.

I can guide you on a journey to heal the heart, to be free of the pain. My greatest joy is watching the transformation.
It is not about forgetting. It’s about remembering!

“Anne-Marie is amazing! I felt completely understood and validated. It was like I mattered! It is just the way she speaks to you and has the ability to look deep in your eyes and understand who you are. I felt so safe as we processed my unresolved grief. I have a lightness in my life now. Everyone needs to do this!”

- Monica Nordquist

"I felt supported around opening up to, being with, and feeling my deep pain and sense of loss. It allowed me to express my feelings without fear of judgement or needing to carry my pain alone. You witnessed and supported me as I reviewed my relationship with my husband. This gave me the opportunity to process, understand, surrender to and let go of the pain and to access the beautiful memories and the love, once again."

- Sandy Lotz-Weiner
