ABOUT WORKING WITH ME

I give the compassionate help and practical strategies my clients need to confidently:

 

  • Make sense of their mother wound

  • Heal their past pain or trauma

  • Understand their mom’s choices and behavior

  • Reconnect with and trust their true selves

  • Create and maintain boundaries with their mom

  • Know how to best navigate their relationship with their mom: stay, change things up, or go

  • Respond to friends and family who don’t understand

  • Live joyfully beyond their mother wound 

 

 

YOU NEED SOMETHING DIFFERENT

The mother wound is about a lot more than just your relationship with your mother. It can negatively effect many aspects of your life including:

  • Self-worth

  • Body image

  • Mental health

  • Relationships

  • Sex life

  • Parenting

  • Friendships

  • Work

 

If you’ve tried traditional talk therapy for any of the above but nothing has helped and you know you've had a difficult relationship with your mom in childhood or adulthood, healing your mother wound is the key to solving these struggles.

ABOUT ME

Hello! My name is Stephi Wagner, MSW, and I'm so glad you're here. I’m the Founder and Executive Director of the Mother Wound Project, the creator of the Mother Wound Aware™ initiative for therapists and other mental health providers, the Program Lead of Breakthrough, and a mother wound specialist who has already helped thousands of people just like you heal the mother wound.

 

IS MOTHER WOUND COUNSELING FOR YOU?

If you’ve asked yourself one or more of the following, mother wound counseling is for you:

 

  • “Other people seem to get along fine with their moms, so what’s wrong with me?”

  • “Is my mom really that bad though?”

  • “Am I being too sensitive or dramatic about how my mom treated me?”

  • "Aren't all moms like this though?"

You'll know it's time to seek counseling for your mother wound when:​

 

  • Your relationship with your mom is negatively effecting your mental health

  • You're feeling stuck and unsure about how to navigate your relationship with your mom

  • ​You've been arguing, fighting or experiencing ongoing conflict with your mom

  • You're in disagreement with your mom about how to navigate a particular issue

  • Your mom has abused or neglected you 

  • You feel your connection with your mom is being weakened or even torn apart

  • Your relationship with your mom is negatively impacting how you show up in your other relationships

  • You're considering pulling away or even ending your relationship with your mom entirely
