You may be feeling emotionally abandoned, conflicted, experiencing depression or anxiety, regretting the past, resenting the present, and fearing the future. This group process is here for you. It will help you clarify your relationship patterns, release emotional and mental anguish, and align your heart and brain toward constructive decisions and actions. Whether or not in unison with Neurodiversity couples counseling, or whether or not your partner has been diagnosed, having personal guidance and a community that supports you is very beneficial.
Navigating your relationship has possibly derailed you from your center, from a strong sense of self and optimism. Leaving you feeling abandoned and hopeless. And very few people, if any, seem to understand what you are experiencing or maybe minimize it and possibly blame you. Your relationship presents a unique set of challenges that may be difficult to cope with (in a way that does not suck the life out of you!) on your own. And my therapeutic community experience is here to help you navigate all of the emotional and practical complexities of it, with your well-being as the central focus. While still honoring your partner’s differences and your love for them with integrity.
Do you find yourself asking or saying:
I WANT TO FEEL MORE HOPEFUL ABOUT THE FUTURE.
I WANT TO FEEL LESS ANGRY.
THE WEIGHT OF BEING SOMEONE I DO NOT WANT TO BE IS UNBEARABLE.
I’M CONSUMED BY A LOT OF RESIDUAL HURT, SORROW, AND REGRET.
DEALING WITH THE HEARTBREAK OF HOW WE WERE (ARE) AROUND OUR KIDS IS DIFFICULT.
WILL IT ALWAYS BE THIS WAY? AND IF SO, COULD I ACTUALLY COPE WITH THAT AND KEEP MY SANITY?
I WISH I WERE LESS REACTIONARY.
I WANT TO LEARN HOW TO FORGIVE AND RELEASE RESENTMENTS THAT HAVE BUILT UP.
I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHO I AM, AND SO IF I GO, HOW DO I KNOW THAT LIFE WOULD EVEN BE BETTER?
I DON’T LIKE THE HOSTILE PERSON THAT I HAVE BECOME.
I’M EXHAUSTED FROM CONSTANTLY TRYING TO GET MY POINT ACROSS - TO BE SEEN AND UNDERSTOOD.
I'VE FORGOTTEN WHO I AM. I'VE LOST MYSELF.
I’M FEELING BOTH EMOTIONALLY SHUT DOWN AND EXHAUSTED.
My 8-week group coaching and therapeutic community will help with these challenges. See if these testimonials resonate with you!

“What has changed as a result of this group coaching is that I have released a lot of the anger and resentment, replacing it with more compassion for my husband. I'm still working on who and what I am, but releasing the negative energy will make that process more of a priority.
This has impacted my life such that I feel that a weight has been lifted and that I can now focus more on myself rather than my issues with my husband. I don't know if I've ever truly made myself a priority."
“I almost didn't join because of tiredness. I felt like I had no more to give, especially to myself. I have also been in therapy and learned a lot, and I wasn't sure if I would learn anything new. But I have to say that I've learned so much more than I thought possible and have been able to see fresh and build on previous insights and connections.”
“My favorite part of the group was group share. I loved the group's makeup and found each woman's honesty and vulnerability, including yours, comforting and inspirational. I would you recommend the Thriving Beyond Cassandra Syndrome group coaching and therapeutic community to anyone struggling to identify a sense of self.”
"I would recommend the Thriving Beyond Cassandra Syndrome group to anyone who thinks their spouse is on the spectrum and they are feeling the untethered, spinning, and uncertainty of what to do next."
"My favorite part of the group was the empathetic listening and responses from the other women who understood the difficulty in being in a similar relationship."
“I went into this wanting to gain skills to find peace in my life and relationship…and not die from anxiety and psychosomatic health issues. The main challenge I was facing were communication failure with my spouse, depression, frustration, anger, hopelessness, health problems. It felt like I needed to get my life back, get me back."
The aspects of the coaching program that made the most significant impact on me were looking inward, Lisa helping each participant see deeper into their story to see behind the curtains we had all put up. Offering concrete, specific instruction and guidance. Meditations. Healing childhood injuries."
What has changed as a result of this group coaching is that I can offer compassion to the child in me who first experienced the injury. I can see my part in how I feel and how I can change how I see and feel it. I can stop to look for what is behind my feelings."
I can now allow myself self-care and am seeking my own joy. I have more compassion for my husband and can see that our future together is more possible than it was 2 months ago. Because I am different."
“I almost didn't join because of anxiety and insecurity about exposing myself in a small group But I am so glad I did! My favorite aspects of the groups were walking back through someone's story and helping us all see what is behind the confusion and suffering. This was very helpful; what I could not articulate or know about myself, I would see it was true of me in another person's story. So very helpful to get me out from behind my protective behaviors. And Lisa’s transparency, honesty, and sincere desire to help make the course more meaningful and effective."
"The aspects of the coaching program that made the most significant impact on me were, having you take the lead on "here's the plan, let's work through these steps" was so helpful to get me to see more of my own process and how much I wanted to live intentionally no matter what happens w/ my husband's choices and actions. You had some incredibly rich psychological connections that you helped me make and the wealth of information about the other NT spouses was huge for me to hear and feel validated."
"What has changed as a result of the group coaching is that I have found a stronger sense of self. I am learning to validate my own experiences, sit with my own feelings/pain/struggle w/o jumping into the anxious attachment mode. I have been incredibly clear, direct and also patient in expressing my requests, needs, desires."
"The group has impacted my life in that the cohort of other women has been so crucial in finding other people who have been through similar patterns in their intimate relationship and families. I know I can reach out to that group to find understanding, ideas, support and nurture. I feel so much stronger as an individual and know more who I am after going through the group process. I can only control my response and my choices, so I'm owning that responsibility more than ever to build the intentional life I want to live."
"I would recommend Lisa’s group coaching program to anyone. Neurodiversity brought me to you, but I see value in these skills for everyone. These should be taught in public schools! What a help this would have been in high school or early college."
