Grief & End of Life Support

Compassionate Professional Support For Individuals & Families


Jeffrey Mince - ICF certified ACC specializing in grief, trauma, loss, and end of life counseling. Extensive training in evidence-based awareness & meditation practices, Buddhist Psychology teacher & former Buddhist Monk.

What I Do:

As an ICF ACC certified counselor with expertise in grief, loss, trauma, and end-of-life concerns, my approach draws from a foundation in compassion and mindfulness psychology as a seasoned Buddhist teacher. I use my skills to establish a secure and evidence-based space where clients can navigate the emotional and practical complexities of death, dying, trauma, and grief.

I then guide individuals in comprehending their emotions, cultivating coping mechanisms, and discovering meaning amidst loss. In those crucial moments when you or your loved ones require support the most, I am committed to assisting, walking alongside, and helping you bear the weight of your pain and fears with empathy and understanding.


By working with me, clients can expect to experience a range of possible positive outcomes, including: Emotional Exploration and Expression: Clients are provided with a safe and non-judgmental space to delve into their emotions, fears, and concerns surrounding death, dying, and grief. This process allows for a deeper understanding and acceptance of their feelings, leading to emotional healing and relief. Moving Forward and Personal Growth: The aim of the coaching is to support clients in moving forward from grief and loss. Through evidence-based techniques and mindfulness practices, I empower clients to navigate the grief journey and embrace personal growth. This can lead to increased resilience, improved well-being, and a renewed sense of purpose in life. Compassionate Support: Clients receive compassionate and empathetic support from a trained professional who understands the complexities of grief and loss. The guidance offered is tailored to their individual needs, providing comfort and encouragement throughout the healing process. Integration of Positive Psychology: By incorporating the latest findings from positive psychology research, clients gain access to strategies and tools that promote healing, resilience, and overall well-being. Positive psychology focuses on building strengths, cultivating positive emotions, and finding meaning in life, even in the face of adversity. Finding Meaning Amidst Loss: Together, we explore the concept of meaning-making and help clients discover real meaning amidst their experiences of grief and loss. This process can bring a sense of peace, purpose, and a renewed outlook on life.
