My desire to help mothers stems from my experience raising my own children. As a divorced mom of four, it was really hard to balance everyone’s needs and maintain any sense of self-fulfillment. I felt like I was stretched in too many directions at once.
Two of my children had learning differences that were affecting their behavior. I worked with therapists and did family training but felt like I was listening to Charlie Brown’s teacher “Blah, Blah, Blah”. I heard the words, understood the ideas, but found it was incredibly difficult to implement the advice I was given.
What sustained me at this time was my own yoga practice. Movement and meditation allowed me to drop into my body and explore my mind. I could reconnect to myself at the soul level and access a deep wisdom that was often overshadowed by the static of daily life.
I took this into my work as a special educator working in early intervention. Because of my own experience, I know that parents often need more support implementing parenting strategies. Whether it’s a plan to decrease a difficult behavior or helping a child acquire a new skill, parents do best when someone walks them through each step of the process giving them guidance and feedback.
I’ve created this work because I think parents need step by step support in creating and implementing parenting strategies AND the spiritual tools to deeply connect with themselves and their family. I will guide you so you can access a powerful source of love and wisdom that will nurture both your soul and the souls of your children."
