I am so excited that you have found your way to my world of Second Firsts. I am Christina Rasmussen and I am here to raise the bar of life after loss.
I use the basic principles of brain science to change the patterns and habits of grief and help you reenter your life and your career one small step at a time.
My book SECOND FIRSTS: Live, Laugh, and Love Again was released by Hay House in November 2013, so everyone can have the tools they need to start over. I look forward to getting to know you and helping you in your journey.
Make sure you subscribe to my free weekly Message in a Bottle so I can start igniting your life already.
