Like you I'm a single mom and I know how hard it can be to carry the world on your shoulders wondering if you've got what it takes to do that "solo parent thing"
If you get in my circle you'll quickly realize that, although I now reside in the US, I was born and raise in France - can't hide the accent :-)
My coaching career started very early because even though I originally got a degree in accounting, I found myself coaching women since I was in High School as they were coming to me when they were in pain.
The feedback was amazing and I became passionate about personal and spiritual development, so I decided to got certified both in Reiki and as a life coach.
For many years I coached women on relationships and dating but when my kids became teenagers, things took a sharp turn.
I began experiencing serious challenges with my health and my my teenagers started acting out.
I spiraled into depression without even realizing and life became so painful, that I found myself wishing that I could just disappear.
I felt so ashamed of myself for feeling this way!
What kind of a mother was I if I didn't like my life when I was lucky to have three healthy kids and a great job?
Okay, my kids' acting out threw me in anxiety, and powerlessness but it shouldn't be a reason not to not like my life.
I was blessed for God's sake!
Being a single mom is hard, but if I loved my kids I should be able to take it!
Then one night I woke up sobbing uncontrollably, when a truth revealed itself to me...
I could finally stop feeling guilty, I didn't like my life but it didn't mean that I didn't love my kids!
I had spent so much time judging myself so harshly because I didn't like my life that I never realized that one didn't imply the other.
I was still crying but with each tear I felt freer and freer!
That was the catalyst to healing my depression and starting the ascension back up. I started the journey to becoming my normal self again, a pretty positive woman, resourceful enough to find solutions to her challenges.
As I was healing, I made a decision: the fear and pain had been so strong and debilitating that I made it my mission to ensure that no single mom out there should to struggle alone like I did!
I changed the name of my business and my podcast from Dating Like A French Woman to Single Moms Doing It All.
I dedicated myself to helping many single moms.
Although some people still come to me with relationship issues and other challenges because they were referred by old clients, the services and products I now create are inspired by my clients who are moms.
One more thing! Since I can relate to the financial struggles of being a single mom not always being able to afford one-on-one coaching, I created a very affordable membership where I share many tools, practices that I teach my private clients and I coach live in a group setting.
My approach includes working with the body, mind, and spirit as one to create lasting changes.
So if you are a single mom raising teens struggling with negative emotions and/or depression, feeling overwhelmed and powerless, DON'T STRUGGLE ALONE!
