Healing Talks Back

If there’s one thing that’s decidedly true about my work, it’s this: things are never EVER boring.

A few times each year, I’m privileged to introduce or resurrect some new or perennial offering—invitations designed to evolve and increase support for my clients, my colleagues and our community at large.

Professionally speaking, these opportunities keep me on my proverbial toes. Personally speaking, they ultimately serve to deepen and broaden the healing environments within which I converse and traverse.

All that to say, if you’ve been seeking a chance to connect with me in a new or different kind of capacity, consider hopping on board for one of these upcoming opportunities. I am truly eager to welcome you!


I am busily preparing to release my event, speaking and support group schedule for the remainder of 2023. In the meantime, here are a few things already nailed down on the calendar:

Ongoing Support Group:
DreamGirls: Designing Our New Lives

Join Anytime via Zoom! (Tuesdays and Thursdays @ 1pm–2:30pm ET)

Welcome to my most flexible, affordable and accessible group for survivors of betrayal-related divorce! DreamGirls provides an open-ended and open-topic forum, for clients who are  independently exploring their “new normal,” alone in the aftermath of relationships mortally wounded by sexual betrayal. DreamGirls provides twice-weekly coaching sessions via Zoom, facilitated by veteran divorce coach Rae Gaelyn Emerson. DreamGirls seeks to help women move toward post-traumatic growth, resolving their trauma through active and progressive “reconnection,” inspiring them to rediscover, reclaim and reorient themselves—all within the context of other women who are doing it, too. Clients can join DreamGirls at any point, on a month-to-month basis (no long-term commitment required.) Best of all? For clients who cannot afford the full group fee, DreamGirls invites participants to join on a “pay what you can” basis.

NEW 3-to-6 Month Topic-Based Support Group:
BELLA: Brave Enough to Live and Love Again

Let’s face it: it takes a special kind of courage to brave new love after sexual and relationship betrayal. BELLA is a twice-monthly online coaching group, designed to support women in ALL stages of movement toward future romance. Together, we co-create a profoundly consent-based environment, one that’s (a) autonomous, (b) empowering and (c) tenderly growth oriented. Each participant sets her own goals related to sex, dating and new relationships, with affirmation and accountability for taking meaningful steps toward those goals.

Summer Schedule = June 7, June 21, July 5, July 19, August 2, August 16.
Autumn Schedule = September 6, September 20, October 4. October 18, November 1 and November 15.

Live, In-Person, Divorce-Support Weekend:

La Loba: The Woman Who Knows
Intensive Weekend for Female Survivors of Betrayal-Related Separation and Divorce*

September 22–24, 2023 in Smithsfield, Utah

LA LOBA: THE WOMAN WHO KNOWS is an intensive weekend of grieving, growing, healing and hope. It’s designed to help you move forward through the trauma of sexual betrayal, supported by others each step of the way: (1) You’ll bravely identify some beloved things you have lost—casualties of addiction, abuse and/or abandonment. (2) You’ll pick up the broken fragments of those tragic losses, letting yourself “feel the feels” that accompany such acts of remembrance and mourning. (3) You’ll discover something beautiful that rises up to fill the void of what’s been forsaken. (4) You’ll take some newly empowered steps forward, moving yourself toward peace, resolution and self-restoration.

La Loba is a jam-packed and therapeutic experience, staffed by a large team of women and professional coaches. As such, we’re qualified to help participants process the various themes you’ll encounter during this weekend, including pain, shame, anger, fear, grief, trauma, communication, boundaries, self-identity and so much more.
PERSONAL NOTE: A few years ago, I (Rae) attended this event myself as a participant (not as a coach) when the crisis of my own marriage reached its breaking point. The gifts I received from La Loba helped me to survive the compound tragedies that followed—which is precisely WHY I’m thrilled to join the staffing team for this perennial event.

*Please note: Unlike most of our La Loba retreats (open to all women, regardless of relationship status), this particular weekend is offered EXCLUSIVELY for women whose relationships do not survive. For other weekend dates, please check here
