After Loss Consulting
For those who have recently lost a loved one and aren’t sure where to begin managing all the tasks that come after a loss.
We’ve helped families just like yours:
Rachel is that rare, authentic person that brings tremendous value to people in a time of great sadness and loss. She is a purpose driven leader in an industry that demands compassion as well as boldness. Her visionary business, [AfterLight], lights the path for people handling the overwhelming logistics of end of life and after loss tasks. She is masterful at creating personalized solutions to give clients the space to grieve. It is a privilege and joy to know and work with her."
I highly recommend [AfterLight] for compassionate, sensitive, knowledgeable and efficient after loss services. Rachel is amazing!"
Rachel was extremely helpful during my family's time of need after losing a couple of members to COVID. She's very professional and prompt, and provided several resources to help us get things straightened out with after death family and financial matters. She pointed out a lot of items that need to be handled that we didn't even think about. I would definitely recommend her business and services to anyone that needs that extra support during difficult times. I can't express my appreciation for her help enough."
Rachel Donnelly provides a remarkable service - practically essential but often overlooked - for recent widows at a loss as to how to manage the barrage of responsibilities suddenly thrust on them, whether unfamiliar and confusing financial dealings or organizing memorial services - and much more - all while dealing with their own grief."
Rachel did an amazing job helping me close down the estate of a family member who passed earlier last year. She has a great deal of empathy, patience, and persistence. She successfully helped me navigate numerous matters that seemed intractable initially. I simply could not have survived this past year without her assistance. I recommend her to anyone who is dealing with end of life and after loss tasks. I only wish I had discovered her earlier!"
I love working with Rachel and would entrust her with my own clients!"
Rachel is knowledgeable, sensitive, supportive, and maintains accountability in an environment where it can often be difficult to make the next step. I engaged her for my own end of life planning, and coincidentally, my father passed days after my last session with her. While not at all the ideal, I was able to better navigate everything that needed to be handled as a function of my discussions with her on my own planning, and I'm extremely grateful for that. I wholeheartedly and without any reservation recommend her planning services; she is truly an unusual find."
I run a probate law firm, and [AfterLight] is my go-to for client needs. So often my clients have needs that are either outside of my firm's scope or that they really do not need to pay and attorney to do, and [AfterLight] is the perfect partner.
[AfterLight], and Rachel in particular, has partnered with my firm on everything from cleaning out homes to helping clients to unwind their loved ones complex financial and corporate documents. [AfterLight] does all of this with the utmost professionalism and a great (dare I say fun?) attitude. I never NEVER hesitate to make this referral, and would recommend [AfterLight] to anyone."
You are providing a much needed service. I would not have been able to do this on my own."
Rachel has been amazing every step of the way! I highly recommend her services! She is friendly, stays on top of things, and gives great advice! My sister and I could not have completed everything we have without her!!"
I really appreciated knowing I had a safe "handoff" of some of these tasks to Rachel. I was out of state, and knowing that things were taken care of without my having to physically be present for every single step was a huge relief!"
