I’m not a parenting coach, nor am I an expert on motherhood. I’m a devout, lifelong student of it. There is no subject on earth I revere more, no humans I respect more, and nothing my heart longs to protect, nourish, restore worth to, shed light on, support the healing of, or advocate for more on this entire planet, than mothers.
❊ Changemakers, cyclebreakers, norm-challengers, visionaries, leaders, and healers, or simply fed up with the status quo and hungry for something more.
❊ Committed to making a difference, but so overwhelmed by our crazy culture, its many distorted messages, and the way it overburdens caregivers, that they often feel frozen with indecision, critical of their efforts, and overwhelmed with grief and unmet needs.
❊ Often outgrowing loved ones, afraid of what this could eventually mean, and feeling isolated in their healing journeys.
❊ Beginning to realize that doing it all alone only slows the growth and healing process, keeps us from accessing our true power and greatest potential, and robs us of soulful connection (which is our birthright).
❊ Untangle yourself from cultural norms and stories that are holding you back and keeping you playing small.
❊ Identify and better understand your unique needs, values, and desires.
❊ Illuminate the ways in which patriarchal norms and narratives keep you exhausted, unhappy, and constantly doubting yourself.
❊ Discover hidden strengths and help you see your own gifts and potential.
❊ Explore your saboteurs and shadows, and the ways they hold you back.
❊ Prioritize in ways that help you feel more powerful, aligned, and nurtured.
❊ Connect courageously and find your people.
❊ Create and maintain healthy boundaries.
❊ Deepen your self-trust.
❊ Understand your stress responses.
❊ Make meaning of your life in more empowering ways.
❊ Cultivate a gentle, peaceful inner landscape that nourishes rather than punishes you.
❊ Build your toolbox of practical, powerful skills for feeling better, stronger, and more effective as a changemaker and cyclebreaker.
❊ Be more YOU, not more perfect.
I not only have deep reverence for motherhood and a thorough understanding of the nuanced ways in which being a mother inspires, complicates, intensifies, slows down, and creates a sense of urgency around the growth and healing process, but I draw from 26 years of personal mothering/family experience including:
❊ Being a teen mom
❊ Home births and a hospital birth
❊ Attachment parenting (and all its sweetness + shortcomings)
❊ Raising spirited children
❊ Making it through some incredibly challenging teen years
❊ Decades of education navigation, including homeschooling, public schools, charter schools, Waldorf, Montessori, international baccalaureate, you name it.
❊ Four years raising kids abroad
❊ 17 years of marriage
❊ A smooth and amicable divorce
❊ Dating as a mother
❊ Writing a book when my kids were still young (mostly at 5am)
❊ Building a thriving business from scratch (and learning LOTS of lessons along the way)
❊ Parenting adult children
❊ Getting my ass handed to me by my idealism over and over again
Let’s dive deep into one juicy topic! You’d be amazed at how much we can cover in 60 minutes when you’re clear on your goals for the session and ready to roll up your sleeves and dig in. It all starts with the right exploratory question. For example:
- Am I ready to work outside the home (and will the stress on the family be worth my increased contentment)?
- Is it time to leave my partner (and is conscious uncoupling really possible)?
- Is it cruel to set firm boundaries with certain family members (and how the heck do I even begin)?
- I’m thinking about becoming a coach/writing a book. Can I pick your brain?
While I sometimes offer stories, tools, and insights as they come up, my job is to lead you to your own deepest truths and wisdom.
It’s hard to get traction on big ideas when you’re constantly being interrupted. It’s tough to see a path forward when you can’t remember what you did last week, much less what parts of you got buried when you became a mother!
Maybe you’re ready to dive back into a career or explore entrepreneurship following a long stretch of stay-home motherhood (but who are you now and what the heck do you want!?). Or maybe you’re multi-passionate and starting to see the ways in which this gift sometimes sabotages you.
This 6-step program is ideal if you’re facing a life transition, trying to make a critical career decision, or craving more meaning in your life. Together, we’ll identify your top 40 skills and interests, brainstorm new directions, develop a concise description of your purpose, and create a plan to bring this newfound purpose to life.
This 6-session package includes four 55-minute sessions where we’ll deep dive using a Purpose Clarity system + workbook, then two more sessions once you’ve begun to take action and the doubts, challenges, and limiting beliefs start bubbling up. Sessions must be used within one year of purchase.
Some stretches of our lives are what I like to call “Power Seasons,” when the growth we’re being invited (or nudged or shoved) into feels especially intense/important/disorienting/heart wrenching.
This coaching package includes twelve 1:1 coaching sessions that can be used over the span of year, however you see fit. Together, we will take a bird's eye look at your life, then hone in on your specific needs, desires, fears, and priorities. These twelve sessions allow us to build a deeper and more informed relationship that gives way to life-changing results. So much more is possible if we spend a season of time together. A blend of coaching, teaching, and mentorship, I share all the tools and tricks I have to help you move in the direction of your heart’s wisdom and soul’s longing.
I only work with four Power Season clients at a time and sometimes have a waitlist. If you’re serious about taking your life to the next level, book your call now and let’s see if we’re a good fit!
