Why Not Schedule a Brief Complimentary Call With Me?

You probably have questions like … “How can coaching help me?” or … “Is coaching a worthwhile investment?”

This is why I think it’s important to have a brief conversation where  you and I can talk about your situation, your feelings about it and what you would like to achieve.

You need not fear feeling vulnerable, embarrassed or ashamed because I will listen without judgement. My role is to walk alongside you in your journey and allow you space to recover.

At any time during or after the call, if we choose to continue together, your sessions can begin as soon as you like.

a note from kerri

I’m Kerri Lewis, grief and loss practitioner, certified coach and founder of SecondActMastery.com. I specialize in helping you recover from grief and loss caused by a divorce, troubled or broken relationship, death of a loved one or the loss of something important to you so you can heal, step out of the darkness into the light and move forward to a joyful, purposeful new life you love — without guilt.

What Makes Me as an Expert?

My journey as a grief and loss practitioner started with my own personal losses…

…a painful divorce, two broken relationships and more recently, the death of my beloved husband. It all changed me irrevocably.

. . .

My husband died very suddenly without any warning whatsoever and when that happened, my world shattered.

Debilitating grief and sorrow, and then eventually acceptance changed me profoundly in nearly every way.

Probably the most unexpected yet rewarding thing that came from my grief and new reality was when I began to recognize that healing gave me the desire to help others who are grieving.

I’ve already had 25+ years experience helping entrepreneurs, solopreneurs and small business owners. That knowledge, along with some advanced training and certification as a coach, provided me with the skills to help others.

Today, my focus is helping those going through the grieving process successfully transition to a more joyful, purposeful life.

“The human heart has a way of making itself large again even after it’s been broken into a million pieces.”

My Story of Loss,
Healing and Triumph

Early one Saturday morning, my husband woke me to say he thought he might be having a heart attack. Without asking any questions, I raced to call for help.

Within minutes an ambulance was out front and several concerned paramedics swarmed our home.

My husband was struggling for breathe and the medics were trying to help him.

Standing behind him with my arm around his shoulder, completely helpless to do anything and knowing how terrified he was of doctors and hospitals, I leaned over and whispered in his ear that he would be okay and promised him I would not leave his side.

A few minutes later, Bobby took his last breath. For the next 30 minutes, medics and doctors worked feverishly to resuscitate him, to no avail.

I heard the words… “I’m sorry. There is nothing more we can do.” I was in shock. I could not wrap my head around the fact that my beloved husband and best friend was gone.

From that terrible moment on everything was pretty much a blur.

Ours was a marriage filled with love, laughter and friendship. How could the unthinkable happen? How could this seemingly healthy, beautiful man just die?

As of this writing, my love has been gone  a little over two years.

As the days dragged by, I moved through them like a robot — simply going through the motions, still unbelieving. The sun came out every day, but my world was gray and hopeless and it stayed that way for months and months — until the day I wanted to start living again.

A trusted friend suggested that coaching might help, as it helped her after she lost her partner, and that suggestion led to two women who work together as a coaching team. They proved to be a perfect match for me.

After beginning our work together, I noticed something miraculous was happening … I started to heal. And as my broken spirit was beginning to be restored, I found that my inspiration was growing to help others wanting to recover from their own grief … to help them as I was helped.

And so, out of the worst tragedy and intense grief I’ve ever faced to healing and triumph, of sorts, over my grief, Second Act Mastery was born.

I share my experiences and expertise with you in the hope that you will know you are not alone. There is help and support for you here, dear friend.
