Celebrating 8 yrs of the Hawthorne Club - Jan. 2018

The Hawthorne Laughter Club, Portland’s flagship Laughter Club met weekly at 4 pm each Sunday afternoon for almost 9 years!! Unfortunately, we lost the space in October 2019 due to rising rent. We are currently looking for another community partner and location. It does not need to be a movement/yoga studio. Laughter Clubs around the country meet in churches, libraries, lobbies, showrooms and more. We simply need a free or inexpensive place with some space to move around in. We are looking for wheelchair accessible, close-in, east side. This keeps the club a true community club, accessible to everyone! Parking would be an amazing bonus! If you have an idea or are interested in sponsoring or hosting us please contact me. We have a small, but dedicated laughter community and would love to fill your space with love, laughter and connection.


I help women in transition move through grief with less stress and more joy & ease.

Remove blocks and "stuckness" so you can focus on self-love and creative flow, finding joy in everyday living, instead of feeling the guilt & shame of your past and the "shoulds" that seem to hang over your head. I am an expert in well-being during transition. I help people understand the power of choice, even in the midst of transitions that often feel beyond our control. Discover the power in your choices and clear your suspicions of self that are holding you back. Learn to focus on gratitude, your personal strengths & beliefs while learning empowering tools that you can take with you into your life, such as EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) aka Meridian Tapping, Laughter, Essential Oils and more.

Change. Choice. Connection.

Learn each day to choose joyful, creative connection.
