Christiane zu Salm is a Mental Health Counselor specializing in Realignment Work.

In her retreats and workshops, she helps Leaders who experience the feeling of loss, stuckness or burn-out with integrating unwanted emotions like pain, shame, anger and fear, so they can become whole again and lead a more meaningful life than before.

She is the author of In My Own Last Words: Insights Shared by the Dying and host of the podcast Before It’s Too Late.

After a decade of hospice work, zu Salm now specializes in Mental Health Counseling. In her Realignment Retreats and Wholeness Workshops, she teaches those who feel stuck, burned out, or empty inside how to grieve losses of any kind, whether it be death, divorce, business, or a significant life change. Her work is centered on the premise that grief can be a transformational force. The grieving process allows us to reconnect to ourselves, diminish regrets, and achieve higher levels of consciousness in our lives.

She is a trained end-of-life caretaker, a certified professional IPEC coach.
