My name is Michelle. I’m a child life specialist, a mental health professional, speaker, parenting expert, author, wife and mother. I have been working with children, teens and families for over twenty years.
When I became a parent it was very overwhelming. I felt as though my life was in charge of me, instead of the other way around. With time and patience I found my groove (of course there is always room for improvement). I love being a mom, but that’s not my only identity. I’m a friend, a writer, a runner, a crafting queen, a dog lover and a dancer… I could go on.
I learned that there can be a better a way. My manager at work doesn’t do everything, she delegates! If I’m supposed to be the manager of my home, than why am I doing EVERYTHING?! I needed to put the tools together to help my family come together as a team. I no longer wanted to be a solo member. Instead of Team Mom, I created Team Family! Now because everyone does their share, I don’t feel so overwhelmed. I feel more in control and I have more time for my family and for “me time”, because I don’t have to do it all.
Do you feel as though you’ve lost yourself in motherhood? Being a mom is part of your identity, it’s not all of it. Before you became a mom you were a person, remember her?
I struggled as well, but I found a way to pull through. I want to help you find your joy again. I’m here to share my tips, strategies and tools with you. I created visuals and charts to get me organized, motivated and feel empowered again. I started taking care of myself again and things started to feel good again.
If you are ready to make a change and do the work, you can find your joy as well. I’ve been there, I’m still working at it. You can do it, just take it one step at a time.
I want you to feel incontrol again, to be the MANAGER of your home.
