Brian Hartzman

Brian is a certified Life Reentry® Practitioner through the Life Reentry® Institute. Following the loss of his wife, Brian grew tired of feeling stuck and began investigating the deeper meanings associated with grief and the lessons to be learned. He has been exploring how grief, trauma, and an unexpected event impact people in our modern world and now supports others who have also experienced loss.

He founded and leads a widowers’ group, so men can commune and socialize with others who “get it.” His search ultimately led him to a new passion and profession – he offers counseling and coaching services for men and women seeking a new footing in life following a life altering change or loss.

“One grief does not describe another. I have experienced a number of changes in my life – big and small – marriage, fatherhood, divorce, the loss of my new wife following cancer, and leaving my established career after 20 years. As I’ve come to understand loss and change, through my experiences and those of others, I have found that the grief we feel is unique unto ourselves. It is my honor to guide others through their changes and into a fulfilling life.”

Brian resides in Seattle, Washington and works with clients over the phone, video, and in-person.

Kristen McIntire

Kristen is a grief counselor who specializes in Life Reentry® after loss. She is focused on helping people who have experienced loss find their way back to thriving in their new and possibly different life. Due to personal experience and training, she has found that Life Reentry® is a powerful way to grow and move forward after loss. Kristen is a Masters Level Counselor, licensed in the state of Pennsylvania, with specialities in both Grief and Disability related issues. Kristen is located in the Pittsburgh area but is available for support via Telecounseling to help you wherever you are located.

Kristen’s mission in life is to help others see that there is the possibility for happiness and life after loss. Grief is momentary experience in life that, while completely devastating, is something that can be experienced, understood and can be used for powerful growth for the future. Grief can cause you to feel that you are alone in what you are feeling and that things will never be good again. It is important to reach out for help when you are overwhelmed. Grief does not need to be experienced alone.

Annette, the caring mother of five children, has experienced significant loss in her life including the loss of her husband of 22 years and the loss of her mother. Through these challenges she developed an inner strength and resilience and learned the art of pushing forward and living again despite the obstacles. She learned how to move on from the “moment of impact” to the creation of a new life filled with joy, peace, and love. Her mission in life is to now assist others on this journey and walk with them through any loss, illness, or adversity.

Nickola Samreth

She felt stuck in a lonely world of anxiety, confusion about what to do with her life and a desire to feel something better.

The Life Reentry process helped her gently reclaim the parts of her she was missing and reclaim her life in a way she hadn’t seen before. It also fueled a need to help others do the same.
