As a teenager my friends always called me the "dr." I was the go to person if they wanted to talk or had a problem. Helping others understand themselves and resolving their inner conflict was my passion! My mother passed away when I was 20 Yrs. old leaving me to care for my two younger brothers. I thought I knew it all. Being a "mom" proved to be simple to my 6yr old and 14 yr old brothers, until I became a mom myself! Suddenly I didn't know anything. Is the baby tired, hungry, why can't I calm him? I had always promised myself | would be the "Best Mom". Never would I scream, criticize, or demean my child. I had seen the damage and struggles "bad parenting" had caused others. But what should I do when I felt out of control, frustrated, or irritated?
The desire to be a calm, loving, compassionate mom drove me to learn and study the techniques I share with you and help implement to empower you to be a calm,confidant, loving mom.
As a mom to four rambunctious boys my kids are my greatest teachers, causing me to learn more and grow everyday. Parenting is not jsut about getting kids to listen, it is a personal journey in self-discovery. Parenting affects every area of our lives, our relationships with others, ourselves, and our spouse. When one is sinking in their parenting journey they often lose confidance in themselves or view their children as their failure. This can cause one to avoid ( or have anger towards the child) which leads one further into abyss. I am here to help you discover the parent in you that is full of compassion, nurturing, and love. Often one has to learn how to do this for themselves before they can effectivley give to the other. I am dedicated in guiding you and supporting you in your personal parenting journey, to reveal the loving mom in you!
