Hey Bright Mama!

You're allowed to be human.

That means that you're allowed to be happy, messy, sad, beautiful, crazy smart, and totally complicated. It's all good. This course is a roadmap to articulating the essence of you AND building the structure needed for you to thrive! Remember, when you thrive, your kids do too. Actually everyone does. You're literally acting against generations of programming when you take action to care for yourself. That's work that matters. It's time, my love. This is a self-paced course meant to be revisited as you grow. While it's stand alone, you're never alone. I'm always here to help and answer questions.

    I know how much of a difference it makes to our kids when we take care of ourselves. Yes, when you make yourself a priority, the positive ripple effect is amazing. Through my own experience raising gifted & challenging children to being a coach and educator, I know that THIS is how we change the world. I help parents of gifted/twice exceptional children navigate the wild journey and thrive along the way. After all, roller coasters are supposed to be fun, right? As for details, I have a Masters in Sociology from the University of Washington and been a coach and educator for years. I believe stepping out of the old role of motherhood will shift our families (and the world) toward healthy, vibrant relationships that heal. Imagine a world where everyone values their unique difference (AND that of everyone else!). I'm also a registered yoga teacher, which informs much of my coaching and personal practices. The body and mind connection gets disregarded in our culture, but it holds the key to true health and wellness. I won't make you do yoga, but I'll probably suggest it. ;)
