MOTHER WOUND PARENT COUNSELING

FOR PARENTS WHO WANT TO BREAK THE CYCLE

Mother wound parent counseling is for parents who want to:

  • Break the cycle of the mother wound in their parenting.

  • Parent confidently from their values instead of reactively from their trauma.

  • Lay the groundwork for healthy parent-child relationships that will last for generations to come.

  • Feel more connected with their children.

  • Learn how to parent free of rewards and punishments.

^^^Good news! That's exactly what I’ve helped hundreds of courageous people just like you break free of.

And now it’s your turn.

I wish I could tell you you're only one parenting book away from being the gentle parent you want to be ...


But that’s just not how this parenting after the mother wound — or heck, any other childhood trauma — stuff works.
 

To become the steady, patient, and compassionate parent your children need, you need more than robotic scripts and good intentions. What you need is an holistic approach that goes directly to the root of your parenting challenges — how you yourself were parented as a child.

... and come to see that the answers were never out there. They've been right here with you the whole time.

 

 

When you're ready to ...

 ... End the cycle of the mother wound for your children.

... Parent from your values, not from your trauma.

... Parent from your values, not from your trauma.

It’s time for you to get the help you’ve been searching for, so you can put your stuff with your mom behind you and move on with your life …

... NO ARMCHAIR DIAGNOSING REQUIRED.

 

Because truth?
I’m PASSIONATE about the

work that I do.

Here at the Mother Wound Project we set out to do what mother-child relationship professionals should do: get you off the social media “Why am I parenting like my mom?” doom scroll and back into your real life. You’ve focused on your mom and her issues enough already. Now it’s time to focus on YOU.

  • I live on the opposite side of the world. Will scheduling sessions be challenging?
    Not at all! I regularly work with clients from all over the globe, so scheduling around different time zones is something I'm really used to.
  • How will we connect for sessions?
    Lots of things are easier in the 21st century, and your counseling should be, too! We’ll connect for your counseling sessions securely via phone or video call, whichever you prefer. Because we are meeting remotely you can attend your sessions from the comfort of wherever you are. I have met with busy clients from their homes, backyards, offices, cars, and even the airport.
  • I live nearby. Can we meet in person for sessions?
    No. I work with all my clients virtually. While some do miss being in-person, most of my clients have expressed how much they appreciate the convenience of not needing to spend time in traffic and the cost-savings of no longer paying for parking.
  • Will you ever bill or communicate with my insurance company?
    I am committed to providing ethical care. I will never share your personal information with your insurance company or communicate with them in any way. I'm a private pay provider.
  • How many sessions do I need?
    Everyone is different. Some people need only a single session whereas some need ongoing support for as much as a year or more. On average, the majority of my clients need 12 sessions, which is why I have designed my Seasons to include this many sessions.
  • How do I know I need counseling for my mother wound?
    This is a really personal decision, and everyone’s situation is a bit different. A good rule of thumb I tell people is this: When your daily life is being impacted by negative feelings or thoughts about your mom for more than one hour per day, your mental health is suffering, and/or your challenges with your mom/your pain from the past are negatively impacting your relationships or your ability to parent, work, or care for yourself emotionally or physically, it’s time to reach out for mother wound counseling.
  • Can I meet with you before deciding to work with you for a Season?
    Absolutely! I also offer Single Sessions and Trios. Those are great options for anyone who wants to start slow.
  • What is a Lifeline?
    A Lifeline is a use-it-when-you-need-it mini counseling session with me that takes place over the phone. They last for 20-minutes, and I guarantee being able to schedule you in for one within 24-hours or less. Ever wanted to have a counselor in your back pocket? Now’s your chance!

Not sure what you need?

Simply fill out this form, and we’ll tell you what you need to take your mother wound recovery from stuck to stupendous!
