About the author.
During the most painful, exhausting and overwhelming years of my 16-year journey as a mom to a son with disabilities, I discovered all sorts of information and resources to get help for my child. However, there was not (and still is not) much out there to support me as a mom. I thought my path with my son was going to be more of a detour than a whole new journey in our lives. This thinking caused me to focus so much on him and what he needed that I didn’t prepare myself for the journey ahead. My exhaustion turned to burnout, my overwhelm turned to despair and my fierce focus turned into loneliness as I realized I had depleted myself and become a shell of the passionate, determined woman I once was. Even more frightening was the journey I was on was nowhere close to being “over” and it was definitely not a “detour.” I set out to reconnect with myself to bring healing, purpose, balance, hope and joy back into my life. I had to learn what worked through trial and error. There were many days I didn’t know if I could really do it. But with determination and effort, I rediscovered myself and my passions. I learned how to be compassionate and kind to myself so that I could give the same to the people I love. I have embraced a future of possibilities with my hope restored! Wouldn’t you like to claim that hope for yourself and discover a way out of the cycle of exhaustion, overwhelm and loneliness that often comes with caring for a child with disabilities or other special needs? Let me help you do that without going through your own trial and error and without spending all the extra time and effort just to figure out what you might need to get there. Instead, allow me to personally share with you my powerful blueprint for living a life with courage, intention, connection and hope.
