The mother/adult daughter relationship can be difficult even though both may love the other. Laurie Newkirk and her mother Marlou Newkirk had their issues rise to the point that 12 years ago Laurie co-founded a website that focuses on healing this dynamic relationship. The site has gained an international following and won many awards. Mothers and daughters have responded from all over the world expressing surprise and gratitude to find out they were not alone in their struggles.

Laurie & Marlou will share how they healed their relationship and will discuss strategies that have helped them and others. Topics will include handling criticism, advise giving, boundaries, humor, and finding forgiveness. An article they wrote about their healing journey recently appeared in ​Fairfield Magazine​.

As the co-founder of, Laurie Newkirk has appeared on radio and TV talk shows, taught workshops and received numerous awards for her writing.

Marlou Newkirk has a doctorate in education from Columbia University and recently won two CT Press Club awards.

This event is free and open to the public. No registration required.
