“Rosemary O’Connor is such a warm and experienced companion for women trying to manage the difficult and exhilarating path of sober motherhood. She has such a good sense of humor, and a lot of both practical and spiritual wisdom. I wish I’d had this book when I had my child in early recovery — I would have gone less crazy, less often, had amazing tools with which to navigate and enjoy both passionate challenges a lot more.”

“Rosemary has helped me so much in my journey to recovery. She is very perceptive and a good listener, able to discern the feelings behind my words. Rosemary gently, but firmly, encourages and challenges me to grow and set positive goals. I am grateful for her wisdom and patience as she guides me in exploring new possibilities for more fulfilling life.”

~ K.L.

“Rosemary has helped me to start to transform my life by helping me to embrace my small progress and change which are adding up to victories in some challenging areas on my recovery path. She is subtle and sensitive and innately insightful. She’s supporting me in embracing who I really am… And when I forget or have a bad day she is there to hold the space for me.”

~ K.H., PhD

“With just a few sessions, Rosemary O’Connor helped me identify the windows of opportunity in my life, and set a manageable course to obtain them. She never waivered in her belief in me, and that alone was worth the price of admission. Her ability to gently delve under the excuses many of us create to avoid looking at what’s not working in our lives is nearly uncanny, yet always feels supportive and safe — like opening yourself to a physical exam with a doctor you’ve known and trusted for years. I strongly recommend her to anyone who is seeking a friendly and wise collaborator in taking an honest look at one’s life and where to go from here, free of self-delusion — and with it, self-sabotage. Best of all is Rosemary’s MO of working in partnership with her clients — thereby helping us gain the self-confidence to learn to problem-solve on our own more honestly and move forward more effectively. I recommend her without reservation and only wish I had found her earlier in my life.”
