You know how CAREGIVER moms in survival mode 

struggle with taking care of their own needs?  

What I do is provide validation & perspective; 

 encourage them to make a plan with action steps

that will make it impossible for my clients to

 remain exhausted, burnt out & worn down.

  I get it.  

I’ve been there.  And know how it is to be caring for the needs of others so intensely that you miss out on taking care of your own needs. 
You might feel like you need someone to take care of you!  You're willing to sacrifice for the good of your loved ones.  
You are a mama-bear!  
You're a warrior woman!! least on the inside. 

Your family is important to you and you willingly put forth the effort for them. But the daily-ness is wearing you down and sometimes you feel like you're stuck in a deep pit with no apparent way out, and it becomes harder and harder to find your zest for getting up each day. You’d love a vacation but you’d probably just sleep through it anyway.

As the saying goes, be sure to put on your own oxygen mask first, before assisting others.  

That’s good advice for immediate needs.  But it is realistic to pull out all the stops and to put many of your own needs on hold in an urgent or crisis situation. Sure - you are surviving.  There's always something to be grateful for and gratitude is an important part of moving forward. Survival mode is do-able in the short run. 

It's when the crisis situation isn't quickly resolved and goes on and on . .  and the needs that you as the caretaker have have gone unmet and under-met for more than a short-term basis, that it’s time to change gears. 

But how?  It’s time to get a new perspective built with truth, clarity and purpose.  And make the changes necessary for the future to benefit you and the loved one whom you’re caring for.  

I got you . . . 

It's not only time to build your new perspective,  

it's time to create your Personal Plan 

with Action Steps that move you forward:

As a trauma-informed, transformational life coach I offer individual coaching to help you formulate your own personal plan with actionable steps for taking you out of survival mode and into progress and sustainability for the long term with a realistic and practical approach suited to your unique situation. 

Just that first step of creating your initial plan can bring great relief.  I’m also available as you begin to put that plan in place and take those specific actions that will bring you more relief, get you out of survival mode and into feeling more like your best self again.

About Me
An adoptive mom of four along with three biological children, I've made it through each of the various phases and learned some of the pitfalls first-hand of being second mom to four of my children. 
I experienced some of the confusion and chaos from unfamiliar behaviors and responses stemming from things like attachment issues and developmental traumas, effects of maternal substance abuse and disabilities. 
I've watched all my kids struggle with things their peers did not. 
 I've been in the pit of despair...but God held onto me and helped me hold onto him.  
I'm still on this journey.  It's still hard at times.  But I have learned and overcome so much.

Both an adoptive mom and a trauma informed coach - I'm honored to be able to offer remote sessions via Zoom as well as "Pocket Coaching" in which we use Voxer (an app that turns your phone into a virtual walkie talkie!) for optional VIP Days of ongoing connections for step-by step coaching throughout your day.  

How's that for personalized support!?
