Headshot Donice ValentineDonice Valentine spent her formative years growing up in upstate New York before attending college in Massachusetts. After determining college wasn’t for her, she decided to seek out an education through life experiences and by reading and taking courses that fit in with her areas of interest. When she was thirty-eight, a profound spiritual experience led her to devote her time to understanding, integrating, and deepening that experience. Donice does not practice any particular religion or tradition. In her writings, she conveys the importance of developing our own inner teacher and healer and the simple message that we are always loved and supported by the Divine. DoniceValentine.com

Headshot Erika ButeauErika Buteau
As a change agent, I have spent two decades helping people and organizations gain an understanding of where they are today, what led them there, and how to move forward to set and achieve their goals. I provide clients with the tools they need to organize their thoughts and ideas to create their desired outcomes. Whether those outcomes are gaining something that they believe is missing, or letting go of the heavy weights holding them back, we work together to build strength, clarity, and perspective. There are as many reasons for grieving as there are ways to grieve. If you’ve suffered a loss of any kind, I’m here. EricaButeau.com

Laura Garcia-Bengoche Headshot CroppedLaura Garcia-Bengoche
As a Master Grief Coach, I have learned how important it is to prioritize processing our grief.  I have personally experienced profound grief and today I am so grateful for the help I received during those difficult times.   Investing in our emotional well-being is an important part of self-care and it impacts those around us.  For the last several years I have been working as a pastoral counselor.  Also, I lived in Latin America for 10 years so I speak Spanish fluently. Please feel free to contact me at Laura_garciab@me.com or 909-450-1513 for more information.
