Spaces to connect

Circles are intimate gatherings and spaces to connect, support, and grow alongside one another.  I currently run an ongoing Entrepreneurial Mothers Circle and will launch three more circles early in 2019: one for mothers, another for expecting mothers, and one for fathers.

The minute I walked in the door to the first circle, I felt excited, comfortable and so so happy I had made the decision to join. Abby’s welcoming smile, hilarious sense of humor, and personal nature immediately put the group at ease and got us sharing in a more intimate and open way than I had felt with others in so long. I left that first meeting feeling connected, confident, and inspired.

Mothers Circle

Coming soon

You are a mother who feels more powerful, less alone, & more nourished when you tap into the collective experience of motherhood. You crave connection, laughter, support, resources, understanding & growth. Gain access to the tools, resources, empathy & empowerment I offer in individual coaching sessions in an intimate group setting of 8-10 women. Explore the impact of motherhood on our identities, partnerships, families, careers & community. The new parent gatherings where we laughed, cried, connected, & forged deep bonds in the earliest days of parenthood seem to drop off as our newborns become babies, toddlers, & growing kids. We don't stop needing the magic & sanctuary those gatherings offer us; in fact, we may need it more now as we continue to navigate motherhood, parenthood, partnership, & womanhood. There is great power in vulnerability; when we allow ourselves to be seen by others, we gain access to a collective strength, wisdom, & energy. Sign up below for updates and announcements about our 2019 circles!


EXPECTING MOTHERS CIRCLE

Coming soon

Calling all expectant moms! Gain access to the tools, resources, empathy & empowerment I offer my expectant mom clients in individual coaching sessions in an intimate group setting of 8-10 women. Join us as we explore our paths to motherhood: what is coming up for us along the way; our changing bodies, lives, partnerships, and identities; birth, reckoning, and building a team and village for you and your family. There is great power in vulnerability; when we allow ourselves to be seen by others in our experience as mothers, we gain access to a collective strength, wisdom, & energy. All expecting moms are welcome - first timers, veterans, solo moms, moms of color, queer moms, adopting moms, moms via surrogate, city moms, country moms.... Sign up below for updates and announcements about our 2019 circles!

FATHERS CIRCLE

Coming soon

It’s time to circle up, dads. Gather with other fathers and explore the impact of fatherhood on your identity, partnership, career, world view, hopes and dreams. How were you fathered and how is that influencing your fathering? What’s it like to be a father today? In joining this circle, you will gain access to the tools, resources, empathy & empowerment I offer in individual coaching sessions in a small group of 8-10 fathers. Connect with others and experience support and connection (and the top secret magic phrase that will diffuse any marital and parental conflicts, 99% of the time) in a topical, intimate setting. There is great power in vulnerability; when we allow ourselves to be seen by others in our experiences, we gain access to a collective strength, wisdom, & energy.
