I'm so glad that you found your way here! 💜
If you feel called to live from your heart and want to make personal growth and healing a part of your motherhood journey, you're in the right place. There is so much richness and depth to be explored on a personal growth journey, and motherhood is fertile ground to do just that.
Are you yearning to grow, heal and evolve for your own sake as well as for your children? You may already know that the more healing work you do for yourself, the less likely dysfunctional patterns will be passed onto your children. When you love yourself, you're loving your children, too.
"We can't take care of the emotional needs of our children until we take care of our own."
- Dr. Gabor Mate
Prior to having children I'd invested a lot of time into my own healing and personal growth-- and I thought I was doing ok!
But pregnancy and my early years of motherhood brought up my deepest wounds and traumas, and I struggled to really be the mom I wanted to be for my children. I was exhausted, overwhelmed, and I kept bumping up against generational patterns and my own nervous system dysregulation.
I dove deeper into my own healing work-- I learned about the nervous system and the multiplicity of wounded younger parts within me and I really started to heal generational patterns. I worked with the triggers that came up through parenting, and allowed that to guide me in my healing.
The changes were profound, deeper than I could have ever imagined-- and I uncovered who I am authentically. One of my greatest joys is to witness my children being their authentic selves-- without having to change to meet my needs.
It is my absolute privilege and honour to walk beside you on the ups and downs of your own motherhood journey and help you heal and transform, both for your children and yourself!
Whether you work with me 1-1 coaching, participate in Mothers in Bloom or simply follow me on social media, I hope that you are reminded of how valuable you are and how you CAN do the transformational work to become the mother you dream of being!
"It’s not only children who grow. Parents do too. As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours. I can’t tell my children to reach for the sun. All I can do is reach for it myself".
– Joyce Maynard
