In Your Darkest Moments,
Seeking Help to Share Your Struggles
Can Change Your Life
Grief is a natural response to loss. It is the death of something… marriage… broken relationship… death of a loved one… the loss of something important to you. Denying your feelings of grief and loss won’t help you bypass them. You need to find acceptance and meaning for your loss. Seeking help when you’re grieving can be amazingly comforting. Having someone to listen and gently walk with you through your grief and allow you space to recover can help you turn the page to find hope and purpose again.
hello! I’m kerri…
It’s my desire to make a real and tangible difference in the lives of those who are grieving… to help you step from the darkness into the light…
I’m Kerri Lewis, grief and loss practitioner, certified coach and founder of SecondActMastery.com. I was a consultant to entrepreneurs and small business owners for 25+ years, but my own experience with divorce, a couple of broken relatonships and the death of my husband led to my inspiration to help others through their grieving process — to move forward, turn the page and open a new chapter of life filled with hope, light and love — without guilt, regret or sadness.
Coping with Grief and Loss
You Can Heal and
Even Thrive After a Loss
Grief causes a wide and unique range of feelings and emotions, mental reactions, physical effects, spiritual struggles and behavioral or social difficulties.
Grief can feel overwhelming… unending… like you can’t breathe. Nothing could have prepared you for this. You’re sad for good reason… you feel lost and alone… your tears don’t seem to stop.
Grief has no timeline.
Just know that you’re not alone. The heaviness will begin to lift one day and you will begin to feel hopeful again.
Seeking help can be amazingly healing.
With gentle, nurturing support, you will begin to lighten and you’ll see how life can become rich, joyous and purposeful.
“Healing doesn’t mean the damage never existed. It means the damage no longer controls your life.”
You and I will work one-to-one in a series of private sessions where the focus is entirely on your needs, emotions and options. You will be encouraed to talk about your feelings without fear of embarrassment or judgement. You will be given the space you need to grieve and recover.
Becoming part of a group means you are part of a collection of others who are grieving. Groups combine the intimacy and benefits of individual sessions plus the collective energy and resources of the group. You connect and interact with others to give and receive support.

Frequently Asked Questions
What should I expect from a grief and loss practitioner?
A grief and loss practitioner serves to actively listen to you, allow you to set your own agenda, offer you support and guidance, help you see things in a new light and to cheer you on as you recover.
How can a grief and loss practioner help me?
For you to break through the pain you’re living right now, I believe one-on-one guidance and accountability is imperative. You will set the agenda for your sessions, have complete freedom to talk openly about your struggles, learn how to move beyond them and step into the light where healing happens.
Is a grief and loss practitioner the same as a therapist?
No. Although your past is part of your story, we don’t spend a lot of time there. Coaching deals primarily with the present moment. We discuss what you want to accomplish to move forward, then together, create a concrete plan to get you there. Practitioners and therapists each have their place and are powerful tools when used properly.
How will we meet for individual or group sessions?
For your comfort and convenience, individual coaching sessions are done by phone. Group sessions meet via Zoom, a popular online video conferencing service.
How often will we meet?
It varies depending on the service you choose. Individual sessions offer more days and times to suit your schedule. Group sessions meet at a designated time each week, usually on a weekday evening.
Over what period of time will we meet?
Recovering from any significant change or loss takes time. No two people recover in the same way, so you have various options from which to choose. Sessions offered are…
- Individual sessions
- Group series
