One thing motherhood has taught me is that we moms have stuff. There is nothing like a little person with a scowl on their face, folded arms (throw in a foot-stomp for good measure) that can bring our stuff to the surface.
You see motherhood didn’t come with an endless supply of patience, perfect wisdom, or boat loads of self-love and acceptance. It came with things like sleepless nights, worry that we’re messing up our kids, lack of energy, anger, putting our needs on the back burner, less alone time with our husbands, a messy disorganized house, emotional struggles, and at times wondering am I really cut out for this mom gig.
But the truth is, this hard stuff, the unexpected stuff, doesn’t have to determine who you are. You are capable of being the mom and wife you have dreamed of being. That is where I come in. I can help you get there.
As a wife of over 10 years and a mom of three kids, I completely understand the struggles that come along with motherhood. I believe that there is a point we all reach in our lives where we just can’t handle any more. I reached this point after my third child was born. I had to give myself permission to ask for help (yes, even though I am a counselor and know all the benefits of it). Honestly, I am still not a “perfect mom.” I still mess up at times, but I learned ways to calm myself before responding, how to recognize things that trigger anxiety, anger, & depression, and how working through my struggles ultimately improves life for not only myself but my kids and husband, too.
There is nothing that brings me more joy than to help other moms learn these things, as well. There is a reason why people say “it takes a village” because we moms can’t do it all on our own. I have been a part of moms’ groups, listened to friends, and even heard conversations of strangers talking about the struggles they are having. The truth of the matter is that you are not alone in this. You don’t have to feel like you are “going crazy” or that your kids deserve a better mom. You are the perfect mom for them.
You are worth it. Asking for help is not selfish. If you are ready to reignite joy in your motherhood journey, contact me today. Call to schedule a free initial consultation. (531-213-6047)
