Professional Certifications and Licenses
Kelli holds a certification as a grief educator from David Kessler, world renowned grief expert (#106028). She has also attended several trainings offered by Dr. Alan Wolfelt, Center for Loss with several more scheduled in the coming year. Kelli holds certifications as a Death Doula through IAPC and and as a DISC analyst and behavior specialist through Personality-Insights. Kelli is a Yellow Ribbon suicide prevention trainer, and has been an affiliate of the American Heart Association teaching CPR and First Aid classes for 20 years. She teases “now I teach people to take care of another person’s heart in more ways than one”.
Kelli’s magnetism towards grief started early when she realized she was comfortable in situations that made others squirm. “When other providers were walking out of rooms where death was imminent, I pulled up a chair and stayed”. Kelli volunteered for hospice companies in her early twenties and sat with several church members and family friends as they took their last breaths. “I’ve never shied away from conversations around death or grief” Kelli says. “Some of the most valuable words of wisdom I’ve ever heard came from terminally ill people I was sitting with”.
I offer one on one and group coaching via Zoom. I also offer Grief de-briefing after an unexpected tragedy.
