Meet Emily.

Hi there. Welcome!

Pull up a chair, grab a cup of hot cocoa (marshmallows optional), and let’s get to know each other.

Chances are, if you’ve found yourself in this space, you’re hurting. I may not know the specific circumstance behind the reasons you’ve found yourself here, but the fact that you are likely means that something in your life is causing you pain.

That fucking sucks.

I’m so sorry for whatever is causing that pain.

Nothing really prepares us for the times when life falls to ruins and we’re left to sort through the rubble. Sometimes it feels like someone plucked us up and dropped us in a foreign country without a map or any knowledge of the language and we’re somehow expected to find our way back to ourselves again.

Life is hard enough to navigate without having to do so with a broken heart and bewildered sense of self.

Fortunately, life doesn’t have to be navigated alone.

If I have one life ambition, it’s to find a way to make every person in this world feel seen, heard, and connected to someone. All the work that I do is driven by that one simple goal – to help you feel not alone.

I know what it is to feel alone. I’m the mama to two daughters who died before birth and was made an almost widow before I got to be a wife when my fiancé died. I have lived through the stress and worry of a sibling struggling with addiction as well as overcoming childhood medical trauma among other things.

I also know what it is to feel deeply seen, heard, and supported. Community, connection, and learning to voice what felt unspeakable helped me create a beautiful life out of the ruins of grief and pain and loss.

There is no greater gift than that of being truly seen, heard, and loved by another. It’s the light in the darkness, the joy in the sorrow and the beauty in the ruins.

So, my friend, whatever pain or hurt brought you here, I hope you know that you are not alone.
