You are sitting on the couch drinking your… third cup of coffee? As you are feeding your baby for the… second time since…? Thankfully, you preplanned dinner, but didn’t really finish lunch. You feel your hours blend into days and your days into weeks and you hate to admit it, but your hair is in a ponytail because you can’t remember when you washed last.
Have you made peace with your birth and parenting experiences? Are you looking to do things differently, planning a VBAC or would like to heal the birth trauma? Do you ever find yourself wanting to parent in ways different from your parents, society, or what the many recommended books suggest? Have you been looking for a place to feel comfortable and confident in your thoughts and choices? Do you sometimes find yourself retreating from your social circle or even your partner because you have gotten so involved with your kids that you have lost yourself?
As a Wife, Mother of two amazing kids, Psychotherapist & Hypnotherapist, I know what it is like to juggle a home, a family, and more importantly, yourself. In 2011, I had my amazing son and in 2015, my little family was completed with my daughter. My family is my passion, not a 9-5 job. For this reason, my passion is transferred to working with moms every day who choose to put their families as their priority, because being a mom is a priority. I will help you to inspire and enjoy your life by helping you define routines to make your life easier, develop simple daily things to do to appreciate yourself and bring some excitement back into your relationship. I will support you and guide you in preparing for the birth of your choice, including putting together an extraordinary team.
There are so many books and so many opinions that you will come across as a parent, which too often leads you to distrust or second guess yourself. I will help you to bury your doubts and start to live in your power, because as a mom, you radiate indescribable strength and power, allow me to help you shine! Redefine your purpose! I believe that you are greater than your story, start a new chapter with us…
