It’s time to stop questioning yourself and start enjoying motherhood

Do you feel sick and tired of:

  • Nagging your kids to do something 50 times, yet it’s still not done
  • Feeling like you can never relax because there’s always more to do
  • Knowing the most effective way isn’t to yell, but you just can’t seem to stay calm enough not to, and then you feel guilty for it
  • Not knowing what to do when your kids are doing xyz so you endlessly scroll google knowing the solution is out there if only you can find it
  • Wishing bedtime would get here already then not being fully present during it only to feel guilty once you leave the room
  • Feeling embarrassed when your kid is having a meltdown in the middle of Target and all eyes are on you
  • Constantly feeling stressed the fuck out

I get it! I’ve been there!

From the time I was pregnant with my first kid, I felt so lost and overwhelmed with all the information out there on what we’re “supposed to do” as moms. I felt like I didn’t know what the right way was and nothing I tried seemed to work. I wondered, “is something wrong with me?” or “is something wrong with my kid?” I constantly questioned EVERYTHING related to motherhood and how I was doing it. It was fucking exhausting. It took a long time and lots of trial and error to develop my own way of doing motherhood that felt aligned for me without sacrificing my values.

Don’t let the overwhelm keep you from a motherhood that makes you feel amazing!

All you need is someone to show you the way!

👋 Hi, I’m Melissa!

Your partner in motherhood

I’m a certified life coach, simple living enthusiast, and mom of two wonderful kids. Motherhood has been a rollercoaster of a ride for me that’s taken me on a journey from questioning myself and everything I did to fully trusting myself and knowing what’s right for me and my family. It’s an ongoing evolution, this motherhood thing, and I want to help you rethink and simplify motherhood as you know it so you can savor this time you have with your kids. I fully believe we’re all in this together and when us moms come together and share our experiences, we all benefit and grow in so many beautiful ways. There’s enough going on in the world today, let’s make this motherhood thing as easy and enjoyable as possible!

For this program I’ve partnered with Molly Barker, Founder of Girls on the Run. She’s a down-to-earth mom who’s been there…who gets it. Girls on the Run teaches life skills to girls the same way this program teaches them to moms. Molly’s expertise in developing and delivering life-changing group experiences just like this one is why I chose to work with her to bring this program to life.
