Are you a struggling mother? Do you wish you had more energy, time or a better relationship with your children? Are you going through a separation or divorce and unsure of how to talk to your children?
Being a mom is the toughest job on earth – leaving so many moms feeling exhausted, guilty and unsure. All moms deserve to feel joy and satisfaction. Creating harmony in the home is my specialty including setting limits with children; re-establishing authority; boosting self-esteem; implementing routines and discipline; and helping families navigate the difficult process of separation and divorce.
In founding JoyWell I sought to create a safe, inspiring, and comfortable space for moms to share their deepest feelings. Many parenting programs focus solely on the child; however, my approach nurtures the parent and child through working directly with the parent to create deeper, more satisfying relationships.
I am a published author on parenting challenges and have worked with families throughout the country for more than two decades. These experiences combined with my own parenting journey, provide real-life grounding on the issues and feelings mothers face. I understand what holds moms back from feeling true joy, including not having enough time, feeling unsatisfied in life, and feeling incomplete or incompetent as a parent.
Through my professional expertise as a licensed clinical social worker and my personal experience of fulfilling many of my own life goals and dreams, I will help you find new ways to do things so you get more out of the energy you are already putting forth. Together we will rediscover and create a sense of ease and playfulness not only in your role as a mother, but in all areas of your life, leaving room to focus on your own passions and dreams.
I believe that when a mother thrives, her whole family thrives. I use a supportive and gentle approach with clients, while encouraging progress. You can expect to feel positivity and inspiration during our work together.
I would be honored to be your guide—whether that means supporting you in being a more fulfilled mother, navigating a separation or divorce, re-establishing the passion in your relationship, forging or refining your career path, or reclaiming the joy in your life. Together, we will celebrate each step of the way!
