The Calm Mom Coach

Providing moms with strategies that create more ease.

I posted this video to IG last week. Many clients come to me with a consistency issue but that’s not their issue. There is a problem behind the problem. They are consistent in going to work, picking up the kids, eating, etc. So consistency isn’t the problem. Do you know the real problem behind the […]

What’s your problem behind the problem?

Today marks a celebration of love, but for many, not feeling like a priority happens everyday, and for some today is no exception. For years, my husband, John, was consumed by work, often putting in 70 plus hours a week. This posed a significant issue for me quality time was my love language. Our disagreements […]

Are you grappling with what I call, Mama Drama? This “Mom”-entous Drama is with the one who brought you into this world. Your relationship with your mom might be smooth sailing, but there may be another close relationship that often puts you to the test. These people and their actions I like to call instigators. […]

Struggling with Drama from your Mama?

Do you have a Sour Patch Kid? Sometimes they’re sour, and other times they’re sweet. This is my Sour Patch Kid. For parents of teenagers and pre-teens (and sometimes adult kids), this analogy might hit home all too well. Sweet and sour is my life with my 16-year-old daughter.  One moment, she is sharing her […]

If One Thing Goes Wrong Does It Ruin Your Day?

Almost every wife has felt some disconnection at some point in their marriage. This is normal. However, when the disconnection lasts for an extended period of time, it’s problematic. I get it. Marriage is one of the most difficult relationships to navigate. Your husband doesn’t come with a user’s manual and neither do you. If […]

Disconnected From Your Husband?

As I scrolled Instagram this morning, I saw this on a T-shirt, she believed she could, but she needed a break so she said, NO! This was the perfect quote for my client, Jaala. Jaala is director of HR overseeing hundreds of employees. She has two amazing boys and was always in go mode. I’ve […]

The Art of Self-Love

If we aren’t careful, our days can easily merge into an indistinct haze. Combine this with neglecting self-care, bearing a heavy mental load, and tackling an endless list of tasks, and you’re on a fast track to feeling overwhelmed and burned out. Before you know it, you might find yourself questioning your identity and desires. […]

4 Things to Decrease Overwhelm Right Now!

“I have everything most people want, an amazing family, nice home, cars; I even have a vacation home but I’m still not happy. I know I should be grateful but I’m not.” This was my client when she first found me. She felt unfulfilled in her marriage, trapped, and alone. Her and her husband just […]

I Should Be Grateful But I’m Not…

I normally don’t blog on Saturdays, but I wanted to write while fresh in my mind. If you follow or know me, you know my bonus baby (my cousin) is autistic. We’ve had him for 2 years. Each day is different. Some days are excellent, some good, and some are flat out S#%&*@! I was […]

When It’s a S#&^!@ Situation

Unrealistic expectations of others doesn’t bring you peace. I’ve been coaching on the side for years, if you ask some of my friends and family for decades. I finally went full time a few years ago. I have some family/friends who refer me like crazy and for you I’m grateful. When I first went full […]

Does this bring you pain too?

A few weeks ago, I noticed something. I had gained weight.  I pulled out a pair of black pants and, to my surprise, they hugged my thighs like never before. I mean, I was definitely bustin’ loose. My thighs were trying to free themselves from the confinement. I had signs along the way.  I noticed […]

30 Days to Stress-Free Holidays?

Sometimes we question whether our husbands have any “common sense”.   We look at their actions and think (some of you may even say it) this makes zero sense. There have been times when I and many of my clients have been left speechless by something our husband said or did.   You did what? Why would […]
