Work with me
I whole heartedly believe that we alone are the experts of our own lives. Most of us were not taught to listen to our inner voices and wisdom and subsequently have spent much of our lives feeling stuck or powerless. My approach to coaching is based on the belief that you are a whole person, resourced enough to overcome any obstacle, make any decision, and create a life that is fulfilling and joyful.
As part of my Whole Person Coach certification I’ve studied the science behind how negative thought patterns keep us stuck and the tools we can use to rewrite them. I’ve researched the science behind the three “brains” in our bodies; head, heart, and gut, and how each one affects our thoughts, emotions and actions.
In addition to dealing with the entirety of your inner being, there is also the entirely of your physical world. In order to address all of the issues and complexities of both areas I will work with you to create a space in which you feel safe, heard, understood, and empowered to take action. Think of me as a rental best friend, always on your side, curious, attentive, great listener, empathetic, and never gives unsolicited advice. Sound good? I hope so!
My focus on the whole person is paramount to my mission to help moms live fulfilling, joyful, courageous lives… to be a Mom & More. So what does that mean exactly? It means acknowledging your whole self, every part of your being. It means putting your actions where your values are. It means letting go of negative thinking and releasing fear in order to live up to your highest potential. Let me show you a few areas where coaching can have a profound effect on your life and happiness.
Mom & More
What does it mean to be a “good” mom?
Many of us are convinced that in order to be good mothers we must sacrifice. While parenthood does require a certain level of sacrifice (mainly sleep) and selflessness there is no reason for the excessive martyrdom that we have adopted as mothers.
We matter. We matter to our families, our communities, and we need to matter to ourselves too. We deserve a life where we are honoring all the parts of our being not just the ones that are in direct service to others. Because let’s face it, when women show up and live as the fullest expression of themselves, THAT serves everyone in one way or another. We all want our children to grow up to live happy, healthy, fulfilling lives and love and except themselves, let’s show them we are brave enough to do the same.
“I don’t have time for self care.”
I’ve heard it time and time again. I’ve even been guilty of saying it a time or two! I hear ya sister! BUT I also know from personal experience that you also don’t have time to NOT do it.
We either take the time or make the time.
There are never seem to be enough hours in the day, especially when our children are young. On top of that there are some huge myths about self care that keep us from actually taking care of ourselves. We are humans, not machines, and even they need service now and again. Let’s forget what we’ve heard about self care and what we think it means. Stop calling it self care altogether. Call it humanity recalibration, being rejuvenation, essence rekindling, whole person curation or any other euphemism that works for you. Call it what you like, but make time for it. It is a practice, meaning it needs to be done repeatedly before you can find what it looks like and feels like for you. No two practices will be alike. It will undoubtedly change with the ebb and flow of your life. There are few things I love more than helping moms create the practice they need to support them becoming the mom & more they want to be.
Time waits for no woman.
Have you always wanted to travel? Rock a board room? Go back to school? Do a yoga retreat? We all have dreams that we shelved at some point in our lives, right?
Motherhood tends to be a big reason to set down and walk away from those things that don’t seem to fit with our new roles. However those dreams (or passions) are still just as if not more so important NOW. Making and taking time to honor the more of who you are not only curbs the regret and resentment we can feel towards our kids when our needs aren’t being met, it also lets you live a more fulfilling, meaningful life. One your kids will undoubtedly learn and benefit from.
How can you encourage and facilitate a love for adventure? How great of a lesson would it be for your kids to see you set, reach for and meet your goals? How proud would they be knowing their mom challenged herself to make a difference in the world?
We are badass. We are moms. We can be more too. I love helping moms find that passion and purpose they have been longing for, and show them just how honoring all those parts of themselves not only makes them a better mom but a happier human.
