Grief Counseling Orange County

About Us

California Widow Retreat

Dear Friend,

This is not how we thought life would be.  We both suffered the devastating loss of our beloved spouses and couldn’t imagine we would ever recover.  But we did.  And we have worked with countless others to bring them hope and healing after their losses. After serving the grieving community as individuals, we met as professionals, began collaborating, and it unexpectedly led to something more. We married in 2020.

Our greatest joy is supporting and loving the broken hearts created by grief. We’ve been there.  We get you.  And we know how to help you. Thanks for checking us out.
