Self-Care Mini-Challenge For Moms
Six days of teeny, tiny self-care lessons, prompts, and challenges to reset that self-care foundation for your mental health. Delivered straight to your inbox.
Therapist and educator for moms, course creator, and proud mom of two. There’s few things I love more than wandering a quaint street with my fam beside me (whether that’s in my sleepy little island town or on the other side of the world), sipping black, uncomplicated coffee (on my backyard sundeck or in a Spanish plaza), and feeling calm, connected, creative, and free. We’re often taught that being a good mother means you sacrifice yourself, but I completely disagree.
I’ve walked down that same path that you’re on right now, in the thick of the chaos, the desperately lonely nights and the overwhelming days that seem to zap your YOU-ness. Now, I feel like that friend who’s been in your shoes, and knows that there’s a way through these incredible-yet-demanding years of motherhood, with your authenticity and spirit intact.
I’d love to sink into the plush sofa beside you, pop a box of salted chocolate caramels into your hands, binge watch Schitt’s Creek for the fourth time, and tell you that you’re going to get through this. Because you will.
After years of struggling in my journey as a mom, I found my “why” supporting other mamas to prioritize their mental health even while raising tiny humans. I learned the tools to feel joy, ease, and presence in motherhood and distilled them into courses, workshops and a soul-nourishing practice-based membership… so that you don’t have to learn the hard way.

Learning + growing
While it’s normally portrayed as the “best time of your life,” pregnancy and early motherhood is often heart-wrenching, confusing and emotionally turbulent. Those sleepless nights, that crushing anxiety and never-ending stream of anxious worries are common, yes, but they don’t have to be your reality forever. My programs are the roadmap to make your way through.
Whether you’re here to finally understand anxiety and how to find your calm again, to figure out how to share the heavy load of parenting with your partner, or let that mom-rage go, I’ve got a range of programs to support you.
What moms are saying
“I can cope better with day to day life and it’s really hard to put my finger on it but just overall I feel lighter and happier and safer. Learning how to better cope with my feelings that arise every day has been game changing”
“I no longer have mom guilt if I mess up, and I no longer label myself as a “bad mom” if I make a mistake like raising my voice. I have learned to give myself grace, not only as a mother but as a human being who deserves self love. I also take care of myself more. If I need to step away, I do so without guilt, and knowing it’s the best thing for everyone.”
“Thank you so much Kate for this invaluable program. You’ve been an inspiration in so many ways.”

Sleep is at the centre of mental wellness, so hop into this workshop to get the the bottom of it. Learn why you’re struggling to sleep, what’s getting in your way, and what steps to take that actually work.
