Hey, Mama: I promise you...

You're not alone in feeling overwhelmed

You searched for online therapy for moms because you're trying to juggle being the perfect mom, wife, and career woman, all while taking care of yourself... but you feel like you’re losing yourself in the process.

Motherhood brings profound changes (actually it really shakes shit up), and it’s common to feel like you’re losing yourself in the process. You're likely wrestling with the pressures of balancing family, work, and yourself.

And, motherhood is noisy, often deafening, and it drowns out the “you” 

Life as a mom might not be what you expected, with the constant demands and endless to-do lists. It often feels like there's no room for you anymore, like you're drowning in everything.

You’re dealing with emotional overwhelm, intense feelings, and always questioning if you’re doing enough.

You feel disconnected from yourself, and pulled in different directions. The pressure to be perfect and successful in everything you do—at work, at home, and in your personal life—is exhausting, making you feel like you can never measure up.

And yes, I know you love your baby, but you're not sure what happened to you.

“I'm learning how to disconnect from work and how to create a routine that works for me and my family.”

As a mother I am learning to carve out some self love time for me. I'm learning that it's okay to just do nothing after work. Therapy has taught me how to disconnect from work and how to create a routine that works for me and my family.

Years into motherhood, you've mastered the daily routines, yet the deeper journey of self-discovery and personal growth continues.

Even as life speeds up—juggling three kids, countless milestones—you might find yourself yearning for a moment just for you. But taking that time often feels like a luxury you can't afford.

In the rush to keep up, it’s all too easy to sideline your own needs—self-care, sleep, personal passions—all sacrificed for the sake of family wellness.

Oh & it's not just new moms

Matrescence is life long...

Let’s call it what it is: unsustainable. 

Mama, you're not just a caregiver; you're still (insert your name here) the woman who deserves to place herself on her own priority list.

Through holistic online therapy for moms, tailored to where you are in your motherhood journey, you can redefine yourself, focus on your wellness, and do shit on your own terms.

It’s not just about surviving; it’s about thriving, growing, and rediscovering your sense of self at every stage of motherhood.

survival-mode mama:

It's time you put you first.

There’s a common misconception that motherhood must be all-consuming, and you lose yourself in it. I say, you can have it all. The thriving career. The presence with your children. The free time for yourself. The kid-free date nights with your husband. And whatever the hell else you want from life.

Here, we don't do "losing yourself". Because here’s the thing… when you’re thriving, your family will thrive, too. Now get ready to thrive and bloom!
