When you dreamed about your future,
how did you imagine it would look?
It’s still possible to create a fulfilling life.
Throughout our coaching sessions, we explore what your path onward looks like. Whether your grief is fresh or you’ve experienced waves of sadness over decades, we’ll work through how you can love your life now.
We’ll address self-perception, re-examine societal narratives, and clarify your personal values — all while making space for hard feelings. I’ve learned it’s possible to reframe dreams and find a direction you’re genuinely excited about.

Creating Your Path Onward
Every woman has a different experience, so our sessions are individualized and focused on the issues important to you. Your path onward is not linear, and neither is our coaching. Issues we cover could include topics like:
Experiencing the grief of childlessness
While others don’t always realize this as a loss, it is. You don’t need to minimize your pain. Whether it’s a pregnancy loss, fertility struggles, aging out of having children, or the loss of future grandchildren, grieving is essential to moving on.
Take the time to heal.
Allow yourself to feel grief.
Learn how to live with sadness and joy.
Get the support you need from family and friends.
Managing challenging situations and triggers
Understand what triggers you.
Develop strategies for difficult situations.
Re-examine societal narratives.
Navigate unwelcome comments.
Flourishing in a normal that’s different from what you imagined
Remember the old you? The one before you knew your dreams of motherhood wouldn’t come true? We’ll dig deep to bring out those parts of yourself that suit you. Then we’ll look at what you want from your new normal. We’ll reframe your dreams and work to uncover and embrace the good in your life.
Clarify your personal goals.
Imagine a meaningful future.
Discover (and rediscover) what you enjoy.
Feel confident and whole.
Aging without children
You may have already worked through the initial grief of a life without children. But now, your friends are talking about their grandchildren, and the sadness can resurface in surprising ways. Plus, it can be scary to think about aging without children to care for you. We’ll work through this grief and find ways forward that feel meaningful to you.
Make space for resurfacing grief.
Navigate new triggers.
Rediscover joy in this stage.
Feel secure for the future.
