Michele Benyo

Michele Benyo is an early childhood parenting coach and mentor who is also a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist. When Michele’s daughter was only three-and-a-half years old, her beloved 6-year-old big brother, who was her best friend and only sibling—died of cancer. She said to Michele, “Mommy, half of me is gone.” The loss was devastating, it left an unfillable void in her young being, and there was little available to help Michele, who was teaching early childhood parenting classes at the time, to navigate her family’s unthinkable new reality. Today Michele’s precious daughter is all grown up and Michele is busy helping families to heal and live forward with grief after the death of their child. Her Good Grief Parenting Approach helps parents get in touch with their parenting wisdom so they can be confident that they are helping their bereaved young child to grieve well as they become hopeful about a future for their family that is bright with possibilities and even joy.
