Empower Your Child by Empowering Yourself
A few months after my daughter was born, I read The Conscious Parent. That was four years ago. I was miserable. Anxious about being a better mom for her. Sick of my husband not helping out at all. And frustrated with a job that started demanding more of my time but wasn’t meaningful.
I wish I could go back in time and tell the newly-30’s-edition Beth that she just needed to invest in herself to have the freedom I have today. I wish I could tell her that a therapist wouldn’t save her marriage. I wish I could tell her to stop feeling guilty for yelling and start feeling worthy of demanding the time she needed to re-charge. And mostly, I wish I could tell her that our precious daughter wasn’t benefiting from her thinking she could power through the pain.
Having Trouble Finding a Mom/Life Balance?
You’re Not Alone. And I’m Here to Help!
I found myself quicky overwhelmed by the mental, physical, and emotional load of having a child. The house filled with baby things and I couldn’t even keep up with stocking the dresser with the correct size clothes. Now, with two, the challenge grew to a carpeting of toys and two pint-size biting people barking out non-stop demands! All of this while my resentment grew toward my husband who seemed to sit on the sidelines. I’ve been there. I can help!
Ready to drop the &?
While I love working with parents of young children, I also have a soft spot for couples! As my own transformation was brought on by my husband, I can help you understand why your marriage is stuck and what you can do now instead of divorce.
Rather than advocate for staying together or divorcing, I’m an advocate for understanding how you’ve allowed the relationship to continue to cage the real you. Once you can identify that, it’s easy to find your wings + remove the cages you may be putting on your family as well and allow all of you to soar free.
Once you’re able to fly, often the conflict in relationship resolves on its own. Either way, you’ll have absolute clarity about your next steps.

Insights on Parenting and Marriage From Yours Truly
I blame love. We come into this world full of it, but then are told that in order to experience it from our parents, we better change. If you’re quiet, I’ll love you. If you pick up the mess, I’ll love you. If you lose weight, I’ll love you. If you get me a gift,...
The use of stoplight charts negatively impact the child at worst and are an ineffective tool in managing classroom behavior at best. There are a variety of different evidence-based programs that teachers can utilize instead, and some that encourage the added component of mindfulness to take self-regulation and cognitive ability a step further. Work with your teacher and school to help them help your child today.
When I see advice for couples in struggling marriages, it often includes things like "make a deposit in their emotional bank account." Or "focus on the positive." Or "go on a date night." Or "get over yourself and only worry about the WE." Well that's all fine and...
