just
for moms

Being a mom can be the hardest, most joyfully and painfully amazing experience you will ever know and treasure. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t periods that you don’t.

It’s a rollercoaster ride of ups and downs and you will likely question yourself over and over again. But that doesn’t mean, you’re not a great mom.

In fact, I believe that only great moms question themselves and feel like they’re screwing up…often.

Let’s face it, it requires so much of us, even the parts that are painful to connect with, that you would rather not shine any light upon. We all know, that light is gonna shine and all your dark places, will be visited (invaded) at one time or another, whether you like it or not. And we wouldn’t change it for anything - on most days.

You always wanted to be a mom and you love your kiddo/s but no matter how much you do, it’s never enough. You know it’s considered “your area”, no matter how broadminded and loving your partner is. And deep inside, you agree. But how much is enough?

At what point do you get to remember that you matter too?

And when does your life become at least a little bit your own again? You know it’s affecting your marriage/relationship and if you’re working outside the home, it’s always a tug-o-war finding the time, energy and focus to do family and career. And what about you?

When was the last time you were truly able to focus on self-care?

You want to keep or improve the loving relationship you have with your kiddo/s. You’d like your marriage to be better, where you can remember what it was like when it was just the two of you. And you may want to feel you can have a professional identity/career without missing out on this time that you know you can never get back.

I’ve got you. I’m a mom who’s known this struggle all too well. I understand how painful this "momming" balancing act can be. You are not alone.

I’m here to help you live your best life, as a mom and the woman with her own dreams, who you have always been, and nearly forgotten.
