Danielle Lapteff EmilyEverAfterCoMy name is Danni and I am the woman behind the keyboard at emilyeverafterco, as well as the face behind Rise and Thrive Coaching.

My mission is to become as strong as I possibly can, and to help and encourage other women to do so as well.

The main reason I took on this mission was because of my daughter, Emily. As soon as I found out that I was pregnant with a girl, I knew that I wanted her to grow up in a world where women support women- where we encourage and empower each other. Now that I have her (and her little brother too), I also am very aware of the fact that who I am will in part shape who my kids become and I want to set an example of kindness and strength.

Along with being a very involved full time mama, I’m an empowerment coach, a blogger, an Etsy shop owner, and a trauma survivor. I am here to help women who feel less than, who struggle with seeing their worth, or who are recovering from people pleasing, trauma and narcissistic relationships. As someone who has been through my own share self-doubt, pain and trauma, I understand the challenges of navigating through the healing process. That’s why I am passionate about this calling, as it is a way of making something good out of all the bad that I went through. I want this website to be a place where you can feel safe, understood, and inspired to take control of your life.

I also run a Facebook group to provide a community setting where women can support and encourage each other, called From Surviving to Thriving.

Whether you are looking for guidance, inspiration, or support, I am here to help you on your journey. I believe that everyone deserves to live a happy and fulfilling life, and I am committed to helping you achieve that.

So, if you’re ready to take the next step, please consider subscribing, hiring me as your coach or visiting my facebook group.  You can also email me at danielle@emilyeverafterco.com  I look forward to connecting with you!

Want to know a little more about me?

The basics:

I’ve been with my husband, Tom, since 2011 and we have two beautiful children and two crazy dogs. As far as hobbies go, I like to stay busy. I cook, bake, read, paint, sew and journal. I spend a lot of my free time taking additional courses, researching mental health and trying out new self-care activities. I also run a shop on Etsy (EmilyEverAfterCo) and I’m in the process of renovating every single room in my house. I love going on long walks (though that’s a little bit harder now that I’m pushing a double stroller), camping, beach days, watching the Matrix or Audrey Hepburn movies. I’m also very big on spending time with my extended family.

A little less basic:

I’m a classic overthinker, have ADHD, and was officially diagnosed with PTSD in mid-2018. Since then, I’ve done talk therapy, hypnotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy and more. I am part of the spoonie community as I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia back in 2011 and have spent YEARS learning different methods of coping with the chronic pain and fatigue that comes with that diagnosis. I have experience with dealing with panic attacks, trauma brain, narcissists, toxic relationships, body dysmorphia, setting boundaries, and learning about self care.

It has taken a lot of prayer, a lot of work and a lot of heartbreak to become who I am today- a strong and empowered woman building a wonderful life. I have being doing the work (especially since late 2018), learning to not only stand up for myself, but to love myself. Change and healing are definitely not easy, but life on the other side is SO worth it.
