Welcome to Your Lemonade Life

yll-headshot

If you have arrived here, I am so sorry your dream of motherhood did not come true. Whether you are just facing this harsh reality, or you have been carrying this profound, silent heartbreak for years, the pain can be excruciating at times. Perhaps, you are not sure life can be worth living, carrying the myriad losses that come with not having the children you dreamed of, who only live in your grief. Maybe you feel lost and unsure of how to move forward. Yet, something within you, something sweet and pure guided you here.

MINDFULNESS – EMBODIMENT – SPIRITUAL PSYCHOLOGY

“We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.”       Joseph Campbell

Being Childless Not By Choice (CNBC) is not your fault. Though it is quite a big bowl of lemons, there are many ingredients available to create your own lemonade recipe, a tonic for your weary soul that refreshes your sense of wellbeing and purpose. 

Through Individualized, One-on-One coaching, I am your guide to rediscovery. I help you find new ways to express your beauty and creativity. This is how we remember that we belong to life and our gifts are needed!

Let’s Make Lemonade !

Together, we build your recipe, your protective and restorative elixir to soothe all levels of consciousness- Physical, Mental, Emotional, and Spiritual. Possible ingredients include mindfulness and lovingkindness meditation, mindful movement, writing, nature-based support and inspiration, Spiritual Psychology, as well as more conventional Mental Well-Being approaches. 
 
Within the warmth and safety of our time together, my aim is to empower you in coming to terms with being childless. Once, we’ve found your ingredients and methods, you can keep a pitcher on hand. The more you fill and refill it, the more confidence you build in coping with the challenges. With this resilience, you thrive, not just survive.
