Are you frustrated with your kids and yourself? Do you wish you had an easy answer to eliminate mom-stress?
▷ Maybe you’re tired all the time, you haven’t washed your hair in a week, and if you step on Legos one more time, you’re afraid you’ll blow! Worse, when you yell, you worry that you’re a bad mom. Yep, and that bag of cookies you just wolfed down doesn't do anything to make you feel better.

▷ Maybe you’re a working mom and really struggle with juggling the responsibilities of motherhood and work. You want to ace both, but you feel like you’re getting a C+ in one and a D- in the other. You’re overwhelmed and tired. All. The. Time. You wonder if it can ever get better.
- Or -
▷ Maybe you felt super confident and prepared to be a mom, but then your kids gave you a reality check. You worry that your kids will never listen and that you'll always yell. You feel stuck in a rinse and repeat cycle of overwhelm, frustration, yelling, and #momguilt with a side of whine (or much needed wine!) EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
What you want more than anything is to feel calm and confident as a mom, with thoughtful kids who listen and behave better the first time. No bribing, fewer meltdowns, and no need to drown your stress in a bag of cookies or a bottle of wine.
✔︎ You long to find a way to manage mom-stress without resorting to destructive behaviors like yelling, emotional eating, or neglecting your own needs.
✔︎ You need effective ways to deal with the pressures that come with motherhood, so you don't feel burned out and at the end of your rope.
✔︎ You want to raise thoughtful and respectful kids who listen and behave better the first time.

You may think:
“Yelling is the quickest way to get my kids to listen and behave.
My mom yelled; her mom yelled. I don’t want to spank, so yelling and punishments are the only ways to let them know who’s boss. And when yelling makes me feel bad, I know I can make myself feel better by eating or drinking. Plus, I know I'll make it up to them later. Hello, #Momguilt! Hey there, #emotional-eating!
“Overwhelm and frustration come with mom territory. I just need to deal with it.
It's a given that I have to juggle everything. Cooking, cleaning, working, kid chauffeur, counselor, referree, kisser of boo-boos. . . . it’s all part of my job. Maybe I could outsource some things, but then I’d feel like I was failing somehow, you know? Don't good moms do everything? And do it well? I feel alone, and I worry that I'm not a good enough mom.
“My job as a mom is to take care of my kids not myself. I want the best for them.
It’s selfish for me to take care of myself. My kids have to come first, even if that means that I don’t do things to make myself feel better. The only problem is that when I'm onto that second glass of wine or well into that bag of chips, I sometimes wonder if I'm really helping them by denying myself. Or does that just make everything worse?
“I worry that I'm doing something wrong. I've read books, tried different parenting methods, and asked everyone and their dog for advice, so why do I still feel this way? Why do I still feel so very stressed?"
Maybe it's because these "solutions" haven't been tailored specifically to you and your needs.
It might be because many parenting "methods" don't get to the heart of the matter; they deal with outside behavior and neglect the root cause of your frustration and their misbehavior.
These cookie-cutter solutions don't always work. They're not adaptable to every family, and you're left still searching for an answer and stuck in the cycle of yelling, mom-guilt, and emotional eating.
The problem is that you and your children are anything but cookie cutter; you’re unique individuals and have a relationship dynamic that’s different from every other mom-child relationship. It’s no wonder that cookie cutter approaches don’t always work, since they’re not focused on your special relationship with your child.
Maybe it’s also because most parenting programs focus on outward behaviors first rather than supporting and equipping moms to best nurture and guide their children while nurturing and taking care of themselves. Happiness and a peaceful family start at the top. If mom’s not happy, no one is! And when a book or program bypasses mom and how mom feels, it neglects the person who sets the emotional tone for the entire family...
Hi, I'm Beth!
I've been helping and empowering moms like you for more than 15 years. I hold a Doctorate of Ministry (DMin), specializing in children and families. In 2013, I also received my life coach certification through CTA (Coach Training Alliance). In 2019, I expect to be certified as an EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) coach, specializing in helping moms overcome mom-stress and emotional eating.
When I'm not equipping and empowering moms and their families, you can find me playing with my grand-littles, walking my poodles, or exploring beaches and mountains on the East Coast.
It’s not all been flowers and sunshine though...
I can relate to the struggles you face. My first two seemed pretty easy; my daughter pretty much always obeyed, and my first son responded to a "no no" immediately with tears and stopping whatever had prompted the correction. Then #3 came along. Oh! My! Goodness! This one broke the mold, and nearly broke me! He made it clear that I had absolutely no idea what I was doing as a mom. Parenting suddenly left me totally overwhelmed, wondering what was wrong with me and what was wrong with him.
Any confidence that I had gained with the first two flew out the window! I found myself trying anything and everything to parent him and defaulted to the way I had been raised, which involved yelling and spanking followed by guilt, overwhelm, and copious amounts of wine.Emotional eating and drinking just helped me cope with the stress. Baby #4 just added to the chaos. So I understand well how the #momguilt/emotional eating merry-go-round works!
This experience, though, taught me a lot. My child who was just “more” off everything—more hyper, more aggravating, more high maintenance, more naughty, more sweet and loving (yes, there were positive aspects to the “more”) was they key to changing my approach and, honestly, changing my life! Through my struggles with him, I developed a passion for helping moms like you, in similar situations, find a better way and parent effectively with peace and empathy, while also taking good care of themselves.
I want to help you benefit from the
mistakes that I made and the successes I’ve had.
Together, we can eliminate mom-stress,
conquer emotional eating,
and get you to your Happy Mom place!
