She supports women who are grieving a loss, whether it is the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship, the loss of a dream, or watching a parent die. Her first book, Understanding Death: 10 Ways to Inner Peace for the Grieving, was an attempt to answer the question: ‘What happens when we die?’ Her transformational memoir Losing Amma, Finding Home: A Memoir About Love, Loss And Life’s Detours was published by Hay House and won Honorable Mention in the 2015 Chicago Book Awards. Her third book Lessons From Grace: What A Baby Taught Me About Living And Loving will be published by Hay House in 2018/2019.
