loss&found

loss&found is a space of support to help young and emerging adults overcome the pain of loss and grief from all the shit life throws our way.

We've all been through loss on some level - heartbreak, death, parenthood (uh huh), miscarriage, work, divorce, marriage (mmhmmm), physical ailments, loss of identity, trust etc. -- loss and grief are as normal and natural as our love for Netflix.

Despite there being over 40 known forms of loss, there are too few places to converse about our experiences and its impact in a real and sincere way.

Enter: loss&found.

loss&found is a space for you to be YOU -- exactly as and who you are, unabashed and unafraid.  Be it overcome with despair, floating mid-air or any of the other 100+ responses to grief; you are welcomed here.  Every part of you.

If you're hurting. If you feel powerless. If it feels as though you're all alone. This is the space for you. Through the power of narrative, coaching and community, you will find help and resources to heal yourself. 

I applaud dialogue and invoke integrity to help you heal and find your way, to get you and your loved ones from loss, to found. xo R.

Vision & Mission

vision

Loss and grief of all forms will be addressed and discussed openly with ease and grace around the world.

mission

Delivering heart-centered coaching, tools and resources to a community of folks experiencing loss and grief in all forms (and those wanting to help them).

Philanthropy

I believe all profits should be for a purpose and everyone could use some help, no matter their class, race, gender, ability etc. As such, I am committed to giving back in the following ways:

  • I offer one (1) free grief coaching call per month to those who wouldn't be able to receive coaching otherwise (email me to apply);
  • Partial subsidies are available for folks in need; 
  • I offer a variety of workshops on a sliding scale or by donation in and around Vancouver, B.C.;
  • I regularly donate time and/or profits to causes I care about including but not limited to: Planned Parenthood, Vancouver Native Health Society, WOC (Women of Colour) Talk, and Native Women's Association of Canada.

Core Values

At loss&found, values are errythang! Here's a list of what I strive to offer:

(1) support - First and foremost this is a space to feel unwavering support. For you, your struggle and all the amazing shit you're gonna get up to on the other side of loss (and I'm here to help you get there).

(2) communion - Not so much in the "bow down to Jesus" kinda way, but rather about sharing intimate feelings, thoughts and experiences on a mental, emotional and spiritual level. Sharing is fucking caring y'all - and I GO IN.

(3) healing - This space and my services can be a main ingredient in the process of feeling and becoming sound, balanced and complete again. I strive to leave you better than when you first came.

(4) community - I'm creating a tribe of vulnerable, courageous warriors. Folks who, like us, have been to hell and back and are looking for a place to call home. Its finally safe to unpack your bags because you've arrived and BONUS, there's a positivity posse here to greet ya!

(5) compassion - I have sympathy and concern for the suffering and misfortune of others, which is what led me to this work. It is through and with compassion that I am able to guide clients facing loss, grief and even their own death and help turn a profoundly challenging experience into a liberating one.
