Are you bereaved or want more for your life?  

You're in the right place. Meet me below to learn how I can make a difference.

Greetings from Vancouver Island, Canada. Hi, I’m Vonne. If you’re visiting me on this page, I’m so happy you stopped by. As a bereaved mom for over fifteen years and as an author, grief advocate and healing practitioner, I’ve dedicated myself to helping others since my twenty-two-year-old daughter’s suicide in 2005. My commitment to healing has pushed me to always strive to be more than who I am today because I don’t want to live only in pain. This would rob me and my daughter of the time we did have together on this planet.

With regard to healing and helping others, the foundation for all of my work is based on the principles of self-responsibility and the choice we all have to heal and transform, regardless of where our pain originates. And, while I won’t say healing is easy for the bereaved because it isn’t, through my books, blog and YouTube channel, I continue to offer change to the way we all view and experience loss and grief, and share what I’ve learned in my healing efforts so that we can all have a better life. A life that is more than just suffering when we’ve experienced unimaginable loss.

As a bereaved parent, I am well aware of the effort it takes to heal and want more. With this in mind, my just released third book Lessons in Surviving Suicide: A Letter to my Daughter  (2021) helps newly bereaved parents who have lost a child to suicide navigate early and complicated grief. My first book Divine Healing –Transforming Pain into Personal Power offers a cutting-edge discourse on grief and loss in western culture, along with a powerful self-help practice to help anyone bereaved heal after loss. The Power of Change – A Path to Enlightenment offers a 30-day guide to help those wanting more for their life immediately start enjoying a fuller, richer life.

I am always working on new projects and have a podcast and digital courses planned for 2021. To keep up with my latest, subscribe to my blog at
