Open Registration for our Love Matters Parenting Soceity


I'm Ce Eshelman, adoptive mom, attachment and trauma specialist, best selling author of Drowning with My Hair On Fire: Insanity Relief for Adoptive Parents, presenter, and owner of The Attach Place Center for Strengthening Relationships.

When I first brought my children home, I found myself completely flipping my lid and my children were entirely wild, angry, scared, and beyond my understanding of how to parent.  I thought I would lose my mind, and worse, I was unequipped to help my children heal from the debilitating impact of Complex Developmental Trauma, a term never spoken to me in the first 10 years of struggling to parent my beautiful babies.

I felt so battered, exhausted, ashamed, and defeated.  After all, I was a therapist already. Shouldn't I know how to do this? How could I be failing at the most instinctual, biologically hard-wired thing in nature? I felt like a bad therapist, and a very deeply flawed mother.

After many dead-ends, false starts, and wrong turns, I finally found a community of researchers, clinicians, and attachment and trauma experts to learn from so that I could help myself, my kids, and my clients with their own children from difficult beginnings. I am incredibly grateful for the cobbled out path.  And I'm pleased to have been able to share what I learned with other parents who find themselves walking on the broken glass of healing.

Now, after years of providing state-of-the-art attachment and trauma therapy, therapeutic parent training, and regular coaching to move parents from surviving to thriving, I am delighted to offer this year-long therapeutic parenting mastermind membership online to you.

You do not have to be alone any longer, and you do not have to live within driving distance from my office to get what you need either.  I am right here in this vibrant community of loving, learning, supportive parents eager to help sharpen your skills, help you heal your children, and move you ever forward toward thriving in your family life. 

Yes, I did say THRIVING.  I mean it, too.


This Therapeutic Parenting Society only opens its doors to new members two times a year, so be sure to mark your calendar for August 28th, 2019, to grab your spot before the membership closes up.
