As a registered social work therapist, I have supported thousands of people over the past decade through grief, loss, trauma and tragedy. However, my work took on new levels of meaning and purpose after my daughter Nora passed away unexpectedly when she was one day old.
I created this guide to address the gaps I encountered during my own experience of grief and loss.
This premier program consists of 7 gorgeous, simplistic modules that facilitate your healing, growth, coping and reflection. It includes a combination of effective, easy tools that soothe, calm and strengthen. You can move through the 7 modules weekly or explore at your own pace.

I have created for you what I could not find: a simple, practical, highly effective map to navigate your way through loss a little easier, a little faster, and with a little more meaning and growth.

As someone who suffered traumatic loss I was drawn to April's healing program. Her program, like herself, guided me gently through tender contemplations. Purpose-filled questions were interspersed with reflections of her own and quotes from others that are meaningful to those who have experienced loss. Her vulnerability helped me feel comfortable being open myself. I am grateful for April's program, and for leading the way through a healing grief journey.
