In Bethany's own words...
It all began at the age of 19 after finding myself unexpectedly pregnant and making the decision: "I cannot give birth to someone else until I have first given birth to myself." Having the abortion started me on an intense path of personal growth that including long-term depth therapy, self-help techniques, the study of meditation and social justice activism. However, during the early years I avoided the Mother Wound because it felt just too painful to face. I continued only addressing the symptoms and surface problems that resulted from it. However, when I finally felt strong enough to focus directly on healing the mother wound and all the pain surrounding it, I began to experience the most profound, life-changing shifts in myself, in my relationships and in my spirituality as well.
Through going through this healing process myself, I realized that for every human being, the very first wound of the heart happens at the site of the mother, the feminine. And through the process of healing that original wound, our hearts evolve from a compromised state of defensiveness and fear to a whole new level of love and power. In this way, the Mother Wound is an initiation into the felt experience of oneness with all life. My goal is to share with others that the Mother Wound is not something to avoid or be ashamed of but a portal into self-actualization. I teach a 7-step "roadmap" for how to navigate the process of healing the mother wound. I teach this process in three different formats: an online course, workshops, and a coaching program for female leaders & entrepreneurs.

"Despite being a therapist for the last 10 years, I realize now how much I was avoiding looking at this area of my life. It was only as I was getting more and more women come through my clinic mirroring this at me that this area opened up to me but I really didn't know how to delve deeper. Your course has put into words and given me clarity for everything I was feeling and experiencing and is helping me heal. Its painful, challenging, amazing and insightful, I feel like I am finally starting to step into my power and for that I am truly grateful."
"The journey through the modules took me all the way to the deepest abyss and back to the light. The endless "aha" moments brought forth a huge paradigm shift that catapulted me to the new level that I thought was not reachable for me in this life. I cannot thank you enough. I've tried so many things, done so much healing, took so many courses, but this was such a thorough, deep and life-changing process. I am truly re-born."
"Dear Bethany …. I don't know where to begin …. your course has made so much difference to me and I'm so grateful to you for creating it. Despite doing a lot of deep work over many years I still felt totally stuck …. as if in a sticky web. Your course opened my eyes and validated my experience in ways that made it safe to see and feel what hadn't been safe to see or feel before. I feel much safer in my own skin."
"I would strongly recommend Bethany's coaching program to every woman. What a profound, ground-breaking work! And how lucky we are to have such a brilliant pioneer offering us a new vision on how to become more free, authentic and powerful as women. I feel deeply inspired and grateful to be part of this evolutionary step."
