This is a test. It is only a test.


Here's something to help you translate those confusing things kids say when they're upset and angry or overtired or just don't have the words to tell us what they really need. The Translation Guide is totally free. Click the bright yellow title to TAKE A LOOK: Essential Translation Guide for Moms. Download it for free today!

Because most of my mom clients could use some encouragement and support on their mothering journey, I decided to write my first book. Based on the scientific evidence that gratitude helps reduce stress, I put together Courageous Gratitude: Celebrate Your Journey through Motherhood. Because we need something more than someone telling us to just be grateful, it's different than your typical gratitude journal. Here's a sneak peek at the e-book version on Amazon.

It's written as a 40 day or even a 40 week experience to help moms reflect on some of the hard and amazing experiences they've had as a mom.  I share a little more of my own experiences growing up in difficult family circumstances, and my journey to overcome an avalanche of challenges as a mom.

Take it as fast or slow as you need to.  With all the great 5 star reviews the book got on it's first weekend on Amazon, I know you're going to love it. It's available in paperback and e-book.


Everyone loved the first book so much, I decided to put together a second resource for my clients, a feeling word dictionary. I love having this available in the office because both parents and kids have a ton of feelings. Having words to describe them makes communication easier and more effective.


Being a mom is hard AND there's hope.

Reach out to me at 636-795-3155 to arrange a time for us to talk more.

I look forward to exploring how we can make being a mom easier and more fun for you. 

And check back in for more resources because I'll be continuing to add more here! Look for Courageous Gratitude for Dads in April 2020.
