Welcome To BadWidow

Welcome to the BadWidow website, your home for airing messy feelings, having bold conversations, selflessly prioritizing your own self-care and tackling painful, practical challenges you never imagined having to cope with. Prepare for irreverent humor, uncomfortable conversations and raw truth. Just remember, no matter what your circumstances, you are not broken. The only way out is through.

As human beings, we ALL know loss intimately. Whether you lost a loved one, got a divorce or lost your business, career, health, money or home, loss is loss. It’s the death of a future imagined or co-created which will never come to pass. Stop apologizing that yours is less painful and important than mine. Your loss is real and you have a right to grieve it. For as long as you need to, unapologetically and without judgement. 

Are you ready to reclaim your capacity to be resilient and resourceful again after your loss?

Sign up for email updates and early notice for an upcoming virtual workshop about How to Reclaim Stability and Resourcefulness in Uncertain Times.
Schedule your complimentary 20-minute Resilience Breakthrough call to find out how I can support you one-on-one with specific challenges.
