Does this sound familiar-

Struggling with exhausting overthinking

Always striving for perfection but feeling like you can’t quite grasp it

Always waiting until the last minute to complete important tasks

Feeling like chaos is your normal state

Consistently worrying that you don't deserve good things

Expecting something terrible is always around the corner

Harshly self criticizing

Over-committing, fawning &/or people pleasing to the point of resentment

Suffering from dogged imposter syndrome

Constantly self-sabotaging & getting into your own way


Struggling to grow your family & desperate to find support as well as compassion from those with similar stories

Trying to learn to cope with the difficult emotions associated with your loss, but unclear how to

Working to create a family plan that works for you, seemingly without success

Searching to once again find joy & fulfillment in your life after devastation

Together we can be partners
