Be your true self in motherhood


Evolve from feeling unsure of yourself and overwhelmed, since becoming a mom, to a self-assured woman who fully embraces and reclaims her identity throughout the journey of motherhood.

yea, i want this!

Hey, Mama: I promise you...

You're not alone in feeling overwhelmed

You searched for online therapy for moms because you're trying to be the perfect mom, wife, and career woman and somehow losing yourself in all of it?

Motherhood brings profound changes, and it’s common to feel like you’ve lost a part of yourself in the process. Many moms wrestle with the pressures of balancing their new identity with family, work, and taking care of themselves.

You may find yourself struggling with:

Emotional Overwhelm, as you navigate intense feelings. Loss of Identity, feeling disconnected from yourself, and who you were before becoming a mom. Intensive Mothering, the exhausting societal pressures of motherhood dictating how you should show up, often leaving you feeling not good enough.

you don't want to "just get by" anymore...

Let me guess

You want to develop practical strategies that equip you with tools to show up how you want to not just in motherhood but the entirety of your changed life.

And you want to feel empowered and supported, knowing you have a therapist who understands and champions your journey toward reclaiming your identity and having an empowered motherhood, on your terms.

hello there.

YOUR relatable mom-therapist

Let's cut to the chase: I know you love your baby, but you're not sure what happened to you. 

It's like stepping into a whole new universe, right? You're not alone in feeling uncertain, questioning whether you truly understand what it means to be a mom, or even recognizing yourself in this new role.

That's where I come in. See, what you're experiencing is called Matrescence – it's like adolescence, but for moms. And just like puberty, it's a transformative journey that often gets brushed under the rug in our society. We're great at talking about prenatal care, postpartum recovery and taking care of the baby, but when it comes to helping moms navigate the transition to becoming a mom? Well, let's just say we're still catching up.

But the good news is, as a holistic therapist specializing in Matrescence and Pospartum, providing online therapy for driven moms of color, I've got your back. It doesn't have to stay this way. There's a path to feeling like yourself again, thriving in motherhood, and finding that spark of joy you deserve.

“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 you (insert your name here) the woman who deserves to place herself at the top of your priority list.

Through holistic therapy, 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.

It's time you put your 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!
