To The Forefront

When is it your turn?

Do you feel like everyone else comes first?

Are you longing to be in your own life?

Who manages kids’ schedules, household chores, balancing it all at work and at home? You do! Women tend to be the primary parent and carry much of the mental load, and this takes a toll….

Women (1)

Do you find yourself struggling to exist in your own life?

You are an expert at showing up, giving, and doing for others. When I say you are an expert, I mean it.

Two kids on opposite orthodontics schedules at two different schools needing to get to appointments. You are on it. Have deadlines at work while also managing a team where two members are on family leave? You do that too. Have a family where the laundry piles seem so endless you would need three washers? If you did you would figure out how to get it all done so no one is missing a uniform or their favorite shorts.

You endlessly show up and give to others.

You may also be trying to remember parts of you that did for you. If you were given two hours to yourself, would you know what you would want to do? Typically, when women get any time to themselves, they start thinking what I can get done (go to Publix alone, make phone calls to schedule appointments, look on Pinterest for birthday party ideas).

They don't ask, “What do I need?". Do you need an opportunity to be fully heard and seen? Do you dream of an opportunity to explore what you want? That part of you that feels so forgotten you think about it when you are in the shower as tears run down your cheeks and fall into the drain. This group will help and support you by re-igniting it!

Be part of a group where women understand.

Women who have felt and experienced the exact same things you have!

Women who feel alone, but deep down want connection, understanding, validation. Women who are courageous enough to speak the truth about their hopes and desires while also seeing and hearing yours.

This group will empower you to listen to your inner voice (the one that whispers what you want) by providing space and an opportunity to name what you desire, and practice saying it in a safe space.

Every Thursday evening, from week one to week six we will all show up. We will listen. You will be seen and heard in a non-judgmental space. This group is designed to be a circle of kindness, warmth, and compassion. To feel united and understood …………. instead of isolated, alone, frustrated, even resentful.

Giving and showing up for others does not ever have to mean choosing them over you.

This group has been created to show you how.

To show you how to honor the one life you have.

Not give it away. We will give you the permission which you have been longing.

Register now-payment in full secures your investment space to yourself.

What will I experience?


Groups are powerful. You are in as much as you want, and we will commit to meet you there. We will work hard, laugh loudly, shed tears, and hopefully walk away a different version of ourselves (you, version 2.0 perhaps).


Group will provide an incredible practice space for intentionality. You have been and continue to be intentional for others. We will tap into your existing resources and learn to sprinkle some to you.


Others and I will be your gentle accountability partners. It takes courage to show up for yourself. We will mirror back the voice you discover within remembering you are worthy. This soft mirroring…. Safety, confidential, inner circle of support is found in this group.


Ripple effect of the investment - when you honor your desires, you will walk away with the confidence to show up as your true, healthiest self. This will impact positively on your relationships, invite work/life balance, and assist with positive parenting. Week after week you can explore and have support as you embrace and walk through these experiences more connected to your true self.

Your investment:

Signing up requires you to put yourself first for a period. This is a huge step in creating change and showing self-respect. This group will understand the magnitude of what it took to choose you and participate in a 6-week group lasting two hours per week

If paid in full the 6-week group is $300.00. To secure your spot, a $50 non-refundable payment is required. The remaining balance is due 2/21/22.

Wellness Group

Groups will include:

Bust through beliefs of how women “should be”

Identify and celebrate boundaries you want for yourself

Practice the language/communication needed to express your needs to partners, family members, peers

Grant permission to own and celebrate that you can be in the forefront of your life

Create and practice new commitments to yourself

This group is right for you if:

You are longing to feel reconnected to parts of yourself that have felt long gone - A renewed sense of life excitement you have been dreaming about.

Feeling empowered to say “yes” to yourself without guilt sounds amazing - You truly want to feel understood without even needing to explain.

This group is not right for you if:

You want to do the work, but not in a group setting.

The timing is not right for you to commit 2-3 hours per week to yourself - You feel more individual work is needed first.

Helene Shute, LCSW

Helene Shute, MSW, LCSW has twenty-one years of private practice experience where she has had the honor of partnering with hundreds of women ready to learn how to invest in their own life and commit to choosing themselves along with being there for others. Some presented exhausted, physically unwell, emotionally resentful at times. With work and committing to valuing themselves they re-entered their life feeling renewed, valued, and with incredible dignity. They did the work for themselves. They did the work to model healthy behaviors to their children. What would the work look like for you?
