YOUR Child Loss Mentor
“I am determined to help other women who've lost a child 
rebuild and create their best life.“
Hi there!
I have three living adult children, and one that died (my daughter’s twin). 

I am a grandmother, which is one of the most fun things ever.  It's also hard because my daughter named her son Joshua after her deceased twin brother.  My kids have either moved out to attend college (with no intention of ever moving back) or have finished college. 

I am twice divorced, but now live with my wonderful boyfriend - Brian.  He has an adult daughter from a previous marriage who lives in a different state. He is by far the best man I’ve ever met and spending time with him makes me want to be a better person. 

Let me tell you a little about Joshua. 

We were surprised to discover we were having twins and, aside from 8 weeks of bed rest, it was a pretty uneventful pregnancy.  At my pre-scheduled inducement at just before 38 weeks we found out he had died.  Everything went to hell. 

As you know, there is nothing like this realization and I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. Now, 22 years later, I'm finally ready to take that experience and my struggle during the following years to help you navigate what lies ahead.  Hindsight is 20/20.
  
I want to help you gain strength from your experience.

I'll show you how to create a life of contentment once again.

Every one of you has a unique story.

But you don't have to do this alone.

If you'd like to speak with me and share your thoughts then you can schedule a time here.

I've been where you are now.  

For so long, I lived my life for everyone else and was miserable. I completely withdrew from my own dreams and was sleepwalking through life. 

Especially that first year. 

I still remember a friend telling me that it was a year before she saw me smile again.

The day I buried my son I still felt I needed to tell my father “happy birthday” because it was always about everyone else.

I know you can you relate to this.  

It's right to grieve and it's right to build a life that is not defined by this horrible loss. Part of life's journey is taking the trauma of loss and turning that into our strength. 

That's not easy to do which is where I come in.

I'd like to help you achieve the same joy in your life as I have found in mine.

If you are interested in how we might be able to work together schedule a call below.

Here are some fun facts about me!

  • I was born in Ireland but moved to California with my mother as an infant to meet up with my dad.
  • I competed in Irish dancing until I was in my mid 30’s.  Even now (at 49) I dance and perform around St. Patrick’s Day. I was raised true to my Irish heritage though I’m still a California girl.
  • I spent over 5 years as a working cowgirl in the mountains.  I actually got paid to work on my horse! This was my childhood dream and I loved being a backcountry guide.
  •  I dance to music every day: in the bathroom, car, etc. It energizes me!
