I’m a Single Mom Coach & Meditation Teacher.
I’ve been a single mom for 17 years, since my divorce in late 2003. I’ve spent years using mindfulness and meditation, along with a few other tools, to make peace with my past and create a harmonious future – all while being present in this moment with my children, my friends, my family, and my career.
I want to help other single moms create the life they really want using mindfulness and meditation. Let me help you heal, move forward, and find what you’re looking for – including and going beyond romantic love.
I live in Florida with my two sons, where I homeschool while solo parenting, all while surrounded by what feels like a zooful of animals.
What can I offer you?
I don’t just do this for myself – though it does help me grow and evolve as a person, too.
I do this because I want to help you. I know what it’s like to be a single parent. I know what it’s like to lose confidence in yourself, to question your abilities, to wonder if you’ll ever find love again. I know how it feels to wonder if you even want to find love again.
So I offer you several things.
I offer you hope. Hope that the life you seek is out there and that you’ll find it.
I offer you a reminder of all that life is. Because life is more than just finding a partner. It’s a bond with your kids, your parents, your siblings, and your friends. It’s sharing a meal with a neighbor, helping a homeless person find shelter for a night, and adopting a rescued animal.
I offer you my experience and the experiences of others who’ve been there and come out the other side. I, through my own stories and those of others, can help you find your way and create the life you want, even if it’s not the one you thought you’d have.
I offer you truth. Whatever I say to you, even if it seems farfetched and out of reach to you in the moment, is true. I won’t ever tell you a lie or say that you can do something you can’t. It might take time, effort, money, or more belief in yourself than you have right now, but if I say it, it’s true and you can have it, be it, find it, or believe it.
I offer you knowledge. Knowledge that you are not alone. That the path you are on has been trodden by others and you need only continue to walk it to find your way. Knowledge that will help you stay on that path, find your confidence, build your faith in yourself, and find new, constructive ways of living as a single parent.
I offer you this moment. Through mindfulness and meditation, you can make peace with the past, plan for the future, and still remain present in this moment, whatever it is – time with your kids, a date, a hot shower, cooking dinner, or even sitting in traffic.
I offer you a place to come where you belong. Where being a single parent doesn’t feel like you’re on the outside, unique, or frowned upon. We’re all single parents here – and if we’re not right now, we were at one time. I get you. I’ve got you.
