Hey Mama, does this sound like your day?
Wake up before the sun comes up
Snuggle the littles and hope they go back to sleep.
No such luck. Roll out of bed (and leave it unmade) and splash some cold water on your face. (That's basically like a shower, right?)
Make breakfast, wash dishes, make lunch, wash dishes, make dinner, wash dishes.
Wait where did the day go?
Mom-ing ain't easy...
but it doesn't have to be lonely.
You see, as a military spouse and homeschooling mama of three, I have had my fair share of lonely nights, days that felt like they would never end, tears and mom guilt. But I am also a Gatherer of Information, A Researcher, and an Enneagram 8 (which means I laugh in the face of "can't.")
So I set myself to work training, working, learning, researching, pivoting, and reformulating what it means to serve my family and yours from a heart-centered place of peace. Passionate about my calling, I hold many titles and certifications that allow me to breath life into families in my community, but the title I hold most dear is MAMA.
My background is in Family Life Education...and that means I'm not just going to teach you how to get the baby out and how to care for them but more importantly how to care for yourself while being the very best mother you are capable of being!
Because infant mental health IS maternal mental health.
If mom is not okay, neither is baby. ⠀
Moms who take care of themselves have more to give back to their families.
Families that ensure everyone's needs are being met consistently and adequately are healthier and happier overall.
In some cultures, postpartum is a time of relaxation, healing, stillness. People surround the new mother to keep her warm, fed, hydrated and in good spirits. The housework gets done, the older children are cared for, special food is made with love while Mama gets to know the new little soul she worked so hard to grow and bring earthside.
In the U.S., we sadly do not have an "American" way of swooping in to care for new moms.
That's where I come in.
Jumping in puddles
I help moms in the Spokane, Washington and Coeur D'Alene, Idaho areas savor the sweetness of early motherhood by cultivating reverent rest, purposeful presence, community connection and essential mama self-care during pregnancy & postpartum transitions.

Take my hand, friend...because sitting with mothers in their vulnerability is my favorite place to be.⠀
Wondering if we're a good fit?
The answer is yes if:
You just need a little bit of help finding your motherhood voice (and the courage to use it)
You're ready to kick the mom guilt to the curb (but have literally no idea where to start)
You desperately need find your way back to a consistent and fulfilling self-care practice as you traverse the early days, months and years of your motherhood journey (because the occasional bath bomb and coffee run just aren't cutting it anymore)
You're a bit of an over-achiever, an avid list-maker/note-taker, appreciate punny mom-jokes and won't judge me if I say "what the hell" too much.
If you're ready to become the strong, capable and confident mother who is part of that "mom village" everyone keeps talking about...
I truly cannot wait to walk with you on your motherhood journey.
