Helping people cope with grief after a loved one's traumatic death is Franklin Cook's life purpose. His own father died in 1978 by suicide after a lifelong struggle with alcoholism, and two decades later, he began working with bereaved people as a peer helper. After 15 years helping people cope with grief, he became a Certified Professional Coach and developed Personal Grief Coaching, a model for one-on-one video support. Franklin believes that each person's unique experience of loss should be honored and respected, and his coaching sessions provide a safe place for grieving people to tell their story -- and to get the help they need.
