Today’s episode is an interview with Heather D Horton of H- Squared Group LLC a certified Grief coach.


During the holidays many suffer from grief in silence.   Lost my first husband Rev. William Scott Wiggins Jr, in 2007. In addition to the loss of a grandmother, a hometown, two jobs and a cherished family dog in the short span of two years. I know all too well about grief and loss. I Heather shares critical advice on how to manage grief and loss not just during the holiday but as any time through the year.  I personally have found that my grief journey has been just that, but for some reason during the holidays, it becomes more acute. I am blessed to call Heather both friend and accountability partner. It is with great admiration that I bring Heather D. Horton, to the Dare2Dream, podcast listening audience.
