One On One Coaching And Mentoring for Single Moms by Choice and Moms To Be

Coaching and mentoring for every stage of the single mom by choice (SMC) journey.

ARE YOU......

  • Are you overwhelmed by choices? 


  • Do you wish you had a non-judgemental sounding board to help you with all the decisions as well as the emotional ups and downs? 


  • Do you struggle to find people who really understand what you are going through? 


  • Are you feeling time pressure to make a choice?

It's time to finally get the guidance and help you deserve

A lot of women struggle with making the choice whether to become a single mom by choice--they are stuck in an endless spiral of indecision. 

I empower you to hear your inner voice of wisdom while also gaining the knowledge and mindset necessary to move forward confidently, so  that you can cultivate clarity, insight and courage even when life isn’t unfolding as planned.

Save time and energy











✓ Imagine feeling supported and seen throughout all aspects of your journey--not having to explain yourself and feel frustrated about your friends that genuinely want to help, but just don't really get it.

✓ Imagine having a guide who's been there, who can help you process the roller coaster of emotions, listen beyond your confusion and help you uncover your desires. 

✓ Imagine, someone who can help you shortcut all the research, give input about next steps and what questions to ask next so you can stop feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. 

✓ And, most importantly, imagine having clarity about your choices--not only dropping the doubt, but feeling empowered and clear about your path.

You can have all this through coaching

My coaching programs are an invitation to...


Feel Safe

It's hard to find friends who really get it. They want to support you, but often times do not know how.


I provide a non-judgmental, open space to explore your emotions, options, and the ups and downs of this journey. I'm always there as a sounding board. I support your exploration of any uncoventional path

save time on your single mom by choice journey

Save Time

I help keep you moving forward on your journey--processing your emotions and taking baby steps towards your goal.

It's easy to get bogged down, spend weeks or even months paralyzed by emotions or the logistics. Often times, time is of the essence. Too many times, women tell me they've stalled numerous times and now are up against the clock to make crucial decisions.

Feel Confident & Empowered

There's nothing worse than remaining in doubt, questioning your path, or feeling overwhelmed by your situation.

With my support, you can address your concerns rather than letting them either lay dormant in your mind, or take over your thoughts.

By working through them, you can move forward with confidence that you are making an empowered choice.

Be Supported

If I'd had someone who'd walked the path before me, who could guide me and show me the way, I would have saved a lot of time and heartache. 

I'm there for you ever step of the way. I've been through it all, and can ask you relevant questions, steer you to resources and listen to you no matter what. 

I'm a certified life coach, child birth educator, postpartum doula, a former attorney and patient's rights advocate. Wherever you are at in the process, I've got you covered.


My Philosophy

I'm trained as a somatic coach, believing that we need the wisdom of our whole bodies, including our Mind, Heart and Gut to make good decisions. I'll help you see the unique wisdom each center provides while not ignoring any aspect. By doing so, you'll calm your mind and figure out what you want and need. 



First, you need to gather information--test your assumptions and fully understand your options. Together we work through the mental stuff--the pros and cons, the details so the analytical part of your mind can be satisfied. 


After you've gathered relevant information it's time to listen to your deepest desires and emotions. They may not be rational. Indeed, they may even be contradictory. But until you know what your heart yearns for and fears, you can't clear the way to know what you truly want. I guide you through this process, making you feel safe to delve into your inner world. 


Often referred to as the second brain, our gut is able to process more information than the cognitive mind. But, we often can't hear it's wisdom because it is buried underneath our anxiety. Really hearing the gut, requires us to quiet the mind and feel. By giving voice to the head and heart, you can begin to make space to hear the gut. Using guided meditations and other somatic exercises, I teach you how to calm your mind, and bring greater peace so you can feel and hear your gut. 

Where inspiration meets practical guidance

Taking the leap to solo motherhood is incredibly emotion. You want to be thoughtful and make the best possible choice but sometimes you end up just spinning in doubt. And letting go of the dream of partnership feels tragic and foreign.

  • I combine my training as a life coach, fertility doula and lawyer to help you navigate the emotional ups and downs. 


  • I know the process in and out and can help you sort through tons of information and choices.


  • I show up for my client’s like nobody’s business.  If we are working together I’ve got your back. 


  •  I help you quiet the voices of doubt and indecision that are dead set on holding you back.
