PART WAYS WITH WHAT'S HOLDING YOU BACKfrom the great things in life
Make room for something better than you ever expected
When life throws a big change at you like:
• being hit with an illness or facing challenges with your well-being
• transitioning from your pre-parent life to being a mommy
• being handed “the box” to pack up your belongings at work
• getting ghosted by your Tinder love
• realizing your self-identity is too small for your big dreams
You struggle to say goodbye to what was, what could have been & what isn’t.
You beat yourself up for wrong choices & wrong turns in life. You question every little detail moving forward so you don’t muck things up. And when things ARE going smoothly for you…well, you can’t stop holding your breath for when the other shoe is going to drop.
"Instead of wasting time trying to figure out what went wrong, Dr. Ato's clients move forward.
I work with accomplished, successful clients who are exhausted by office politics and wonder how to get back on track, make amends & learn how to execute "Good Goodbyes" moving forward. They find the answers they are looking for in Dr. Ato’s Good Goodbye approach. She helps them get back in touch with their values. They regain control of their day, energy & time.”

People always say they don’t like goodbyes. No one ever says they don’t like hellos.
Yes, dealing with change is uncomfortable. And we don’t get taught how to part ways well with what’s changed.
But some of us have figured out how to make saying goodbye a good experience.
To accept and understand why things had to change. And to feel grateful for it.
To not avoid change so much so you can use your energy to build an even better bridge to what’s next in life.
And this is what I’m here to help you with.
Transform the fear of change & loss into fuel to create something better than you ever expected.
"Dr. Ato, your Good Goodbye approach applies to so many situations!
I feel that what’s stopped me from healing from thyroid disease is not knowing what or who I would be on the other side of it. My whole world was tied up in managing this chronic illness, so letting myself say a Good Goodbye to that part of me and say hello to a new me was the last missing piece."
KYLIE WOLFIG, Author & Founder of Thyroid School
“I love Gladys’ vision of positive transition that recognizes the unique contribution & needs of all stakeholders of an organization.
Gladys' “Good Goodbye” approach enabled us to give space to all members of the NHU university community to grieve the closure of the school in our unique ways & to celebrate the experience with each other. She did this all in a balanced & holistic way that respected the dignity of every member of the community and honored their service to the institution.”

CHANGE CAN BE TERRIFYING & MESSYBut it doesn't have to be
After going through several tragic personal & professional changes that totally rocked my world (you can read about some of them here in my book),
I developed a counterintuitive approach to dealing with change and loss that helps you get good at this part of life that’s constantly going to come your way.
The Good Goodbye® approach is a straightforward, psychology & science-based framework that teaches you how to:
- Successfully adapt to any change life throws your way and be stronger for it
- Turn the dread and disappointment around loss into acceptance and gratitude for a new chapter
- Create necessary changes in your life without regret or guilt holding you back
- Bring clarity of purpose to those parts of your life that feel out of control.
Change is inevitable, and the Good Goodbye approach will help you find purpose in navigating it so you feel GOOD about your choices & actions.
“Dr. Ato helped me have a Good Goodbye from the old Ashley.
"Have you ever told yourself, It’s not that big of a deal or Things will blow over with time...distracting yourself from facing the issue at hand?” This quote from Dr. Ato sums up perfectly what I was doing for 8 months after my son's birth. It took completely losing control for me to realize I needed help in transitioning from my pre-parent life into my new role as "mommy." Doing so helped me have a "good goodbye" from the old Ashley and turn the page into the next chapter of life with grace & acceptance.”
ASHLEY SOTO, MBA Proud mama to two beautiful boys
"Dr. Gladys Ato's Good Goodbye training is bearing great fruit!
Every week since Dr. Ato facilitated our Good Goodbye leadership training, we've leaned into the coming changes our parish community is facing & have kept our focus to support parishioners in experiencing a profound Good Goodbye. The whole staff agrees her training was the most helpful to us all.”
FR. TIM KUMMERER, Pastor of All Saints Parish, New Riegel, OH

“Thank you Dr. Ato for your gift of The Good Goodbye.
Last Sunday I went to church and for the first time, I had a deep connection with a part of myself that hadn't healed. I closed my eyes & prayed silently. When I opened my eyes, a child was looking at me with a smile. I said, ”I accept that my unborn child didn't make it to my arms.” After seven years of guilt & sadness, I was feeling blessed & thankful. Reading Dr. Ato’s book helped me have a Good Goodbye to my unborn child."
