Embrace Yourself Today

Time may heal, but how do we live with the scars?

Embracing Myself goal is to be a source of comfort and support for people undergoing difficult times whether as a victim of domestic abuse/domestic violence, a difficult divorce, the loss of a job, an illness, etc.

In some way, life is going to get us, and our mission is to help people find tools to navigate through these difficult times with the understanding that what resonates with one person may not for another.

In other words, everyone needs to find their own path and we’re here to support you through whatever that may be. In addition to our blogs, we also provide coaching, resources/organizations that will support you and tips how to get yourself on your feet to feel strong, empowered and joyful.

Please know, you are not alone!

Dignity is not a luxury! You deserve to feel happy and loved!

Lauri is currently advocating for changes in MA House Bill HB 1207: An Act Relative to Child-Centered Family Law. Thanks to the many survivors who wrote letters, sent postcards, and met with legislators to tell them how the original bill harmed survivors and children affected by domestic violence. Our efforts made a big difference!
