Welcome to Mastering the Art of Being Broken, a blog and healing space that is committed to helping individuals navigate through the grieving process and find hope and healing.


As Marie Howe eloquently stated, "I had no idea that the gate I would step through to finally enter this world would be the space my brother's body made." While my brother's death in 2002 to suicide was terrible and has effects that still linger to day, it also broke me open and has allowed me to grow and change in ways that would not have been possible without his loss.

We understand the profound impact of loss and are dedicated to providing valuable resources and support to help you on your journey. Please take a moment to explore our website and let us know what else we can do to be a resource.
