We are thankful that you found your way to Afterwards. We are Sharon Roth-Lichtenfeld and Pat Obst, two specialists in the field of grief and loss. We are a Licensed Clinical Therapist and a Certified Professional Life Coach with a whole lot of QBE too. That’s – Qualified By Experience.

We have experienced our own devastating losses just like you. They include loss of a child, loss of parents, loss of friends, devastating illness, birth of a special needs child, loss of relationships, divorces, loss of dreams, loss of identity, living losses, loss of jobs. 

We struggled even after the first year. We felt like we were in a holding pattern, waiting for life to get better. That the place we resided after our losses. 

We didn’t just wave a magic wand and life became better. We took action. We took intentional steps to heal and move forward. With a lot of dedication and support from others, we stepped into our new and different lives with empowerment. We redefined, redesigned and recreated ourselves and our lives after loss and forever changes. We figured out how to flourish.

We created Afterwards and The Afterwards Program because we saw our clients, and people in the community struggling just like we did many years ago. We saw a critical gap in support and programs after the first year of loss or life transition. We have a heart for those who are struggling to move forward after loss. And we have a passion to provide resources to the community to ensure there is truly joy, peace and life – after loss.

Afterwards is the critical bridge from being supported through support groups and therapy to actually gaining the ability to flourish.
