If you've been through a major life altering event, or still stuck in addiction to food or alcohol, it’s normal to feel angry, overwhelmed, and alone....

But the darkness doesn't have to be your home.

Hi, I’m Tanya.

I’m happy you’re here— but I’m sorry you’re going through this painful experience right now. You likely never thought you’d need the kind of help I offer, but I want you to know you’re in the right place.

As a published author, speaker, and mentor, I’ve helped and spoken to thousands of people on how to overcome adversity, addictions, and master resilience, no matter what they have endured in their lives. 

This time in your life, doesn’t have to be devastating. No matter what you are going through in your life, or are struggling to move beyond, you CAN find happiness and purpose again. You CAN live in a beautiful space of calm and clarity of your direction; a place with no room for regrets. 

Fear can become passionate purpose.

Heartache can become hope.

Overwhelm can become clarity and direction.

Grief can become greatness, (whatever that means for you).

I know, because I suffered many adversities, including my own personal struggles with food issues, and then a major loss that shattered my world to pieces and took me on an Unplanned Journey. In the end, I found a way to reach the other side, stronger and brighter than ever.

Whether you’re struggling to move forward after a life altering event, struggling with food or other addiction issues, or facing the great unknown— your own Unplanned Journey— then I’ll help you triumph so you wake up every day with hope, excitement and inspiration.

I will show you how to overcome this problem, as you become your own master in resilience and awaken your own greatness, (even if you have tried many times before).

A Triumph In Life And Death

Unplanned Journey: A Triumph In Life And Death is a book for grieving people, their loved ones, and everyone wanting to find purpose and meaning when there seems to be none.

Tanya Unkovich. Unplanned Journey Book
“This is one of the most moving and courageous stories I have ever read. The experience of watching the love of your life die must be extraordinarily harrowing. The fact that both Tanya and her husband documented what they were going through during his last days must surely be the staunchest gift to anyone else facing the same experience. This is a love story beyond parallel.”

Ann Andrews
Author, CSP

“I couldn’t put it down. This book is as real and raw as they come. Tanya bares all and takes you on her very personal journey through loss, darkness, and depression and shares how she crawled back into the light. Truly a celebration in the resilience of the human spirit, a lesson we can all learn from.”
