Leading Expert in Perinatal Loss and Trauma

I’ve sat beside those that have needed support and counseling after their mind, body, or spirit had broken, shattered and overwhelmed.
Over the years, I’ve supported thousands of men and women in overcoming the negative impact of trauma, loss, tragedy, neglectful and abusive parenting, and all the things in between that happen while you are trying to live.
My clients lives have been impacted by military experiences, sexual assault, brain injury, physical injuries, emotional trauma, pregnancy/child loss, infertility, work stress, grief, depression, and anxiety.
As a leading expert in perinatal loss, thousands around the world have been supported through my e-book, youtube videos, online support group and online grief recovery program.
Dr. Tara May
My clients have had a tremendous impact on me and I am honored and privileged to be entrusted on these sacred journeys.
