I'm Kathi Balasek


I’m Kathi Balasek, educator, client connection coach, grief communication consultant, podcast host, and speaker.

Here's the facts. Most people were never really taught how to communicate with people going through grief and loss.

This became very evident when I became a young widow raising five children. I had to re-learn how to navigate the world not only for my family but for my future.  I learned very quickly that what people do and say will either help or hurt, connect or disconnect.

Once a teacher, always a teacher.  With 20+ years of teaching and coaching, I know that connection, empathy and meeting people where they are is what builds relationships.  Currently, I am a lecturer at California State University where I train future teachers.  

My mission, is to teach everyone the empathetic language of loss.  We will ALL experience grief and loss. Grief leadership and communication is critical right now.  Join me in this cultural conversation.
