© 2010-2015 Motherless Daughters of Los Angeles
One of the most important things I do in individual and group therapy with
Motherless Daughters, is to help motherless women feel “normal”. When you
grow up without your Mom, that is not a normal experience. As a result, we
tend to develop differently than women and girls who have their mothers.
What is normal for us isn’t for them. If you would like to join us, please like us
on Facebook and sign up for our mailing list. We will let you know when a
new group forms, a new event is taking place and will keep you up to date with
all Motherless Daughters news.

Hope Edelman wrote the first book to address what it’s like to grow up
motherless. That book, Motherless Daughters, The Legacy of Loss, came out in 1994.
Before that, there was nothing written that tied it all together for us. Finally we
had a name, “Motherless Daughters”, and a framework in which to understand
As a motherless daughter myself, and already a licensed psychotherapist, I saw the
need to have a group for motherless women in Los Angeles. Since 1996 I have
been providing specialized individual psychotherapy, support groups and events
for motherless daughters. Great healing can come from emotional support,
understanding and love. If you, or someone you know is in the Los Angeles area
and would like more information about Motherless Daughters, please contact me.
You are not alone!
