Founder & Certified Life Coach
I started this coaching practice FOR YOU because I've been there.
I too am a mother of someone with special needs and I remember wondering
if this was all there was to life, is this it? is this all there is? There has to be more.
When I tried to keep everyone safe and happy, I became depleted, exhausted, confused, and stuck.
I felt that I had no help, and no support.
I was alone and isolated because of the severity of my son's needs.
I felt like I was hiding and I did a lot of the “I am fine” language while wondering , do I share “real life” with people?
I was happy to be a caregiver for my son and if anything — I was wondering if I was doing enough...
(que the perfecting and the constant feeling of guilt).
I felt guilty of not having it together because some days it felt like I was “messing up",
"losing my cool" and having meltdown moments where I'd end up crying.
The real problem was not that I was bad or doing it wrong... I had just gotten myself stuck in the circumstances, and all I could see was the circumstance.
In Sean’s younger years, I felt judged but something shifted when I decided to do
some work on myself and FINALLY got resolution with judgement from others.
A lightbulb was turned on for me... what if I need do more work on me so
that I can live a better life, enjoy myself and in turn be a better Mom.
I stepped into the work I needed to do on ME, it turns out that the more I worked on myself,
the more my circumstances had less control of my mind.
The combination of doing MY work and my faith sent relief rushing through my life .
I stood strong in knowing God was in control and we were perfectly perfect where we were at.
The self work that I did helped me to see the positives.
The guilt lifted... the fear lifted...
and I realized that I was doing the best I could with a level of excellence.
I am still laser-focused on my son and continue my researching, studying and fighting for him daily.
I like to say that I'm dreaming the dream for Sean. But now I know with all certainty that all of this starts with allowing a dream for myself.
Something shifted in a huge way when I decided to allow myself to have dreams again. I allow myself to have all the dreams, they are part of my Vision, and my life.
And I want YOU to realize that it's safe for you to have a vision and dreams
and that starts with taking steps towards YOUR inner work.
Do I have it all figured out? No, but I still have all the joy and peace I've
ever wanted in my life and YOU CAN TOO.
