Cindy Burns

I help widows & widowers go from pain to purpose and from grief to growth.


I don't just help the widowed with their grief. I also work with them to find their new purpose. When your spouse dies, they take your plans for the future with them. Finding that reason to get out of bed in the morning gives your life purpose and meaning.


Cindy is a life coach for widows. After losing her husband, Dan, to lung cancer, she decided she needed a new purpose in her life. That purpose is to help other widows through their grief and find THEIR new purpose too.
