If the first thing you hear in the morning is “Where is my backpack? What is for breakfast? Where are my shoes? ” then I know you are probably and most likely running on fumes. Motherhood is a roller coaster with moments of extreme glee and joy and others with sheer pain and fear. As mothers and women we need a place where we can let our hair down, put our feet up, and focus on numero uno! We are all in this together.
Since becoming a mother and suffering from post-partum depression, I feel a great sense of responsibility to help other women and mothers. If you find you are feeling anxious, depressed, insecure, lonely, and lost then pick up the phone and make an appointment! Let my couch be the place to unwind, find solitude, and bask in the child-free hour of perspective, guidance, and nurturing you deserve. I would love to help you uncover and discover the “YOU” under that pile of laundry and dishes.
Maybe motherhood isn’t what you are trying to balance. You might find yourself lost in a sea of have “musts” and “shoulds” and feel overwhelmed, in a daze. I believe one of the most important things a woman can do is build her army of support. We need people that are not only going to build us up when we are down, but also keep us grounded when we are losing our footing. We need a place where we feel safe. Pick up the phone and make an appointment. Or better, yet, go online to schedule. God knows you’re probably reading this in the wee hours of the night once you’ve tucked the kids all in for the night anyway.
I believe change is possible when you have the right tools to change. Many people find themselves overwhelmed and stuck in a life, behaviors and habits they no longer want or need. I am here to help guide and facilitate change by helping you set small and achievable goals that will help you move forward and improve your life for the better. Consider this your Super Soul Sunday, but without Oprah, and without being amongst her trees. But, you have my couch, some lovely plants, and a therapist interested in no one but you for one solid hour.
