About Us

Hi, I'm Kirsten with a k.

I know it's confusing with all the Kristens, Kierstens, Kjerstens out there so here's a little tip for you to remember how to say my name: I like to be outside and the first part of my name rhymes with FIR, like the tree. 

When I was 7, my best friend died. 

When I was 8, I lost two grandmother's within months of each other.

When I was 12, my classmate committed suicide.

When I was 14, my dad was killed. 

Needless to say, this is not my first time around the block with death and grief.

Everyone told me grief was individual, and while there's truth to that, this advice left me floundering and looking high and low for anything that would help. It took writing a book to find my balm. Click here to learn about my memoir, In My Own Skin.

But the bottom line is that grief is not just individual. It's also UNIVERSAL. 

You know what it feels like when something you love is taken away from you. 

You know what it feels like when the ground is shaking around you. 

You know what it feels like to walk on broken glass. 

I created this website, the Flipside of Life, to offer support and resources for a new way to grieve that *actually works.* I'm here to condition you and millions of people for a new way to grieve so that you can approach your life with courage. Click here to join the growing community in our private facebook group.

Because there's so much that's universal about grief and like anything else you can learn the EXACT words to say and things to do to make a situation *actually feel better.*

It might seem counterintuitive, but with the approach I take to grief, I've had people find peace within THREE WEEKS. That's unheard of in the tradition world of grief. 

Before you get to outcome and results happy, I have to say I believe grief is a popcorn process that takes as long as it takes. I'm here to give you the tools and support that actually work to grieve so that you can find healing instead of spending your time sifting through what I call "clueless" advice. That's why people who come here are able to find peace at rapid speed. They are getting tools that *actually work.*

Because you can heal. And the sooner we get started, the sooner you can FEEL YOU AGAIN. 


... the flipside of life is death.

... the flipside of grief is LOVE.

... the flipside of hurt is HEALING. 

... the flipside of loss is LIGHT. 

... and the thing about the flipside of life is that it is LIFE too.
