Unlock your inner wisdom

The answers to all your parenting questions emerge through slowing down from doing into being, tuning in to ourselves and our children, letting go of what’s holding us back, allowing what is, leaning on others for support, and trusting ourselves, our children, and the process.

Parenting is the hardest work we will ever do. But it’s not a battle we need to toughen up for and charge into. It’s an invitation to surrender, soften, and build community. We weren’t meant to do it alone.

Connection is why we’re here; it is what gives purpose and meaning to our lives.

— Brené Brown, Daring Greatly



In my newsletter, I share vulnerable stories from my own parenting. The intention is to recognize our common experiences, normalize what parenting feels like, nourish our need for connection, and remind ourselves to come back to presence. From this state, we can love ourselves and our kids fully and unconditionally.
