© 2010-2014 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 ourselves.
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!
