Testimonial Graphic


When my husband died, I was devastated and lost. My life was focused on his care. With that gone, I felt I had no purpose. That is until I started meeting with Jody LaVoie. I joined one of her free monthly group sessions and felt safe and understood. I decided to sign up for 12 sessions and it's the best thing I could have done for myself. Jody gave me the tools and support I needed to find joy and purpose in my life again, both personally and professionally. Jody is a wonderful coach for widows. If you're struggling with the loss of a loved one, Jody can help.
