Maria Malin of Lake Forest, IL is a certified PEACE™ Coach, assisting clients facing life crises, with a specialty in grief recovery. A bereaved mother, Maria is the published author of the book, “When You Just Can’t Say Good-bye, Don’t – A Mother’s Personal Journey After Losing a Child” (www.movingforwardhangingon.com), Chicago based newspaper columnist, and motivational speaker on the topic of finding authenticity, purpose and gratitude after life-changing loss. Maria inspires other bereaved parents to return to a focus on their child’s life versus their death, thus helping grieving families return to “living life” again themselves. When parents have been given the most hopeless news imaginable, Maria gently guides and offers practical, everyday tools to seek hope and a return to a positive focus. When “going on” without your child seems unimaginable, “moving forward” with your child still close in heart and mind can create a true path to healing. Maria is available for both in-person and phone coaching sessions, with complete information on her web site.
