Anne-Marie Lockmyer and Ron Gray are professional grief specialists and both lost their beloved spouses. Anne-Marie lost her husband to a sudden brain aneurysm while she was out of the country.  Ron lost his wife after a 4 year battle with cancer. He was her caregiver. 

Anne-Marie is a grief specialist, certified in critical incident stress debriefing, a certified trauma-integrative practitioner, 8-time award-winning author on grief, and founder of The Grief & Trauma Healing Network, LLC.

Ron is a master marriage and family therapist specializing in grief and related trauma and is the founder of Christian Grief and Trauma Counseling Center and The Haven spiritual retreat center in Orange, California. He now partners with Anne-Marie at The Grief & Trauma Healing Network, LLC.

After losing their spouses, they personally know the pain and devastation that grief and loss cause and are living proof that you can go from surviving to thriving. They offer life-changing grief support and grief counseling with intensive grief healing programs, The Next Chapter Retreat for Widows, family grief orientation sessions, and specialize in helping people heal from lingering trauma symptoms associated with grief and loss. They work with people worldwide and offer crisis grief support for businesses, grief certification training for therapists and coaches, and speak on grief wherever they can. They are passionate about advocating for and loving grievers and being an educational catalyst to society on grief and loss.

Ron and Anne-Marie met as professionals and became friends and colleagues which, unexpectedly but happily, became something more and they married in 2020. Their greatest joy is watching the transformation that grief support and loss counseling can provide. They are on a mission to be educational catalysts on grief and loss and to bring a message of hope and healing to the brokenhearted. You no longer have to let circumstances control you or identify you.
