Discover Your Pathway to Peace

You can’t go back and change the beginning,

but you can start where you are and change the ending.

- C.S. Lewis

Are you suffering from a broken heart? Do you feel angry, disappointed, resentful, depressed or stuck?

Did a death, divorce, or the end of a romantic relationship cause it? Or was it caused by any of the forty other losses that a person might experience such as moving, pet loss, or a change in finances? Regardless of the cause, you know how you feel and it probably isn’t good.

We aren’t going to tell you, “We know how you feel,” because we don’t. Neither does anyone else. What we will do is provide a safe environment where you will be given specific tools to help you recover from loss and ultimately lead a happier life.
