Adrianne loves to write. She loves to inspire and encourage people even more. Her intention with her books is to help those who read them feel validated in how they feel as she quenches her own creative drive.
Adrianne is excited to announce the release of her second published book, "A Mother's Hidden Grief: Managing the pain of baby loss while supporting your children."
Providing support to mothers who have lost a baby (whether during pregnancy or into toddler hood) has been a passion of Adrianne's for the last 10 years. Losing her own baby in 2004 is what inspired her to go into grief counseling.
Her new book guides mothers through their pain and offers therapeutic workbook activities, helping them process and integrate grief.
