Embrace Yourself Today

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.

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.

Our efforts made a big difference!
