Welcome, my friend! I'm Grief, Soul Purpose, and Transformational Life Coach, Tara Accardo. Losses Become Gains offers 1:1 coaching, a membership, a blog, podcast, and community. LBG was created to serve support and guidance to those who have experienced loss and are journeying through grief. I want to help you move forward happier and more fulfilled than ever with more meaning and purpose.
I’m a cappuccino and carrot cake lovin’ girl and Grief Coach from California. Audrey Hepburn and Aperol Spritz’ are my muses, and I’m darn proud of it.
Here's the thing... when I lost my mom, dad, and beloved 19-year-old dog within two years—oh, and went through a breakup the same day my dad went to the ER—I didn't know how much more I could take. I had the weight of the world on my shoulders and still had to function each day.
After a LOT of research and self reflection, I found my happy and gained a beautiful, optimistic perspective on life. Your loss doesn't need to define you. My mission with LBG? To help you find gratitude and gains from your losses.
Think of me as your "north star", of sorts, as my mission is to guide you on your grief, healing, and spiritual journey. My name does mean name means “star” in Sanskrit, after all!

For me so many others out there, journaling can be intimidating. Where to even start, right? With the blank page staring back at you, I wanted to take the guesswork out of it. I knew that if I wanted a journaling habit to actually stick, it would need one that is quick, effective, digs deep, and asks important questions to get me going.
This is a daily reflection journal designed to help you capture your thoughts, goals, and growth, even if you only have 5 minutes!
The Losses Become Gains guided journaling format allows those who are grieving or suffering a loss to take a moment and breathe, reflect, and dig deep. Cultivating a more positive, optimistic mindset by starting and ending our day with a few moments to gauge how we're feeling—and where our grief stands that day—is so beneficial to the healing process. This can help us develop strength and resilience, personal growth, emotional intelligence, gratitude for what's in front of us, improve our relationships, and get to know ourselves again.
When it comes to healing your heart after a loss, you want to find someone you trust to guide you, right? It's such a vulnerable state you're in, and the last thing you need is someone who makes you feel invalidated or uncomfortable. Finding someone who can not only relate and understand you on some level, but takes the extra step to do the research to find the best tools and guidance possible for you. That's where I come in.
I felt so pulled to this practice of guiding others through their grief that I became a Certified Grief Coach through the From Grief to Gratitude Coach Certification Program from the Institute of Professional Grief Coaching (IOPGC).
This means I can be better equipped to guide you through the transformative process of handling the painful emotions of losing a loved one—or whatever your loss looks like to you—getting on top of your grief, and moving forward in life with meaning and purpose in the shortest time possible. All while finding bits and pieces of gratitude along the way.
I use my learnings as a Grief Coach, the many grief and healing books I divulge in, and my own experience with loss to have the most well-rounded and comprehensive loss guidance possible—from what you'll read in my blog posts to what I put out there on Instagram and beyond. Your loss means something to me, and you'll feel that!
