Conquer Grief with Dr. Julie Sumner

Make Grief Work For You

Many do not realize that in addition to losing our loved ones, we grieve the loss of income and status, divorce/relationships, traumatic events, health diagnosis, and our early environments. Is grief holding you back from rediscovering your purpose and new normal? Do you want to learn how to make grief work for you? If the answer to either question is yes, I can help.

Growth Mindset-Based Approach


Amid sadness, trauma, and grief knocking me around like a rag doll, I enrolled in Pepperdine's Graduate School of Education and Psychology. I was determined to pull myself out of my funk and use what I learned to help others. After years of research on grief, stress & anxiety, and resilience, I developed a system that has helped countless clients to conquer the bully (grief), rediscover their purpose and design their new normal. The AGGVA system combines elements of the Growth Mindset Theory with Spirituality.

Grief Coaching

Rediscover Your Purpose & New Normal

Grief sucks. It is an annoying bully that terrorizes you and your loved ones. It controls and manipulates your heart, your thoughts, and your behavior. It successfully overpowers your happy memories, gratitude, and opportunity to establish a new normal. If you are ready to defeat grief, I have the playbook to help you do so. Get in touch today.

Life Coaching

Get the Most out of Life

Are you happy? Are you living the life you desire? Can you even identify what brings you joy and how to get it? Just because life throws unexpected curveballs doesn't mean we cannot take control of how we respond to them. With my coaching sessions, you'll learn to make yourself a priority, overcome obstacles and achieve your goals.

Student Coaching

Embrace Life’s Challenges

Students equipped with growth mindsets understand that their challenges do not limit their intelligence. I know this first hand because I learn differently. Being diagnosed with SPS (Slow Processing Speed), it takes me twice as long as the average learner to grasp a traditionally taught concept. Acquiring a growth mindset helped me reach what less than 10% of Americans have achieved in academia. I provide students with strategies and tools that will increase their confidence and performance in school and life.

Thank you Julie! My son and I had a quiet few moments this morning. We were flaccid on the past years and recalled some of his highs and lows. In his darkest moments, you were the light that shined for him. Some of his happiest memories were with you as well. He has never and will never forget you. We love you. And we're so thankful for you.
