→ You struggle to manage it all.
→ You're simply trying to get by in motherhood, instead of enjoying it.
→ You feel like you're constantly frantic, just trying to get through the day until you collapse and are exhausted.
While most programs focus solely on your child, this program focuses on you as a whole person.
I firmly believe that as the mom, and the primary caregiver of your child, YOU matter.
When you’re not feeling well, either physically, emotionally, or both it directly affects your family.
Mothers are the heart of the home, and when mom isn’t doing well, because she’s overwhelmed, stressed, and so dog-gone-tired, barely able to keep her eyes peel past noon, it hurts your family and your children.
Instead of sporadically trying to balance it all, we focus on one area of life per month so you are reaching goals and making steady progress, all while connecting with like-minded women around the world in an exclusive community.
Imagine, if you were able to wake up as the best version of yourself every.single.day (okay—most days—because #autismmomlife and #middleofnightwakeupdutyhappens)?
This community is designed for moms who don't want to simply survive Autism motherhood, but to thrive in it.
I have two kiddos on complete ends of the spectrum-- a daughter with Aspergers and ADHD...and a son with classic non-verbal Autism and Sensory Processing Disorder.
I'm definitely on this journey with you.
I’m here for the Autism mamas who are tired of just barely getting by,
unable to keep her head above water...
you know that there's a better way to "do motherhood," but you're just not sure how.
Perhaps you want to cultivate more family time, meaningful relationships, and create more joy-filled moments in Autism motherhood and you're tired of just trying to "get through your day."
You're in good company!
You know you're in the right spot if:
you crave an open and honest community and you're ready to form deeper and more meaningful connections.

I know what it’s like to have autism kick your butt-- literally.
Days when your child is banging his head on the wall or injuring himself in some other manner and you just want it to stop. Days when you’ve had to deal with your nth meltdown, and if you hear one more person give you unsolicited advice you’re going to commit murder.
This program isn’t going to fix everything about your life, and your life isn’t going to be nothing but glitter and rainbows afterwards.
But what it will do is teach you the practical skills to help you show up as the best version of yourself every. single. day.
Despite the lack of sleep.
Despite the meltdowns.
Despite the self-injurious behaviors.
There is only ever ONE person you can control, and that is yourself. So, let’s help you show up as the best version of YOURSELF.
Yes. She’s still there.
She has hopes, dreams, and passions. Let’s help her come alive.
When you’re overwhelmed, and in a chronic state of stress, you’re unable to live out your best self. You simply can’t. So, how do we, hand-in-hand, help you get unstuck? By focusing on the areas of your life that you DO have control over.
That’s why YOU matter. I want this so much for you, because I want you to get to the other side. I want you to be able to experience joy, and feel better about your circumstances and your life.

I’ve been there, too. I felt awful anytime I used money for myself, it felt selfness, and unnecessary. I was moving at a rampant speed to help our son, and had little regard for myself. I didn’t take care of myself, which only left me feeling even more overwhelmed, resentful and depressed.
When I started to take better care of myself, physically, mentally, and emotionally I started to see small changes, and realized that Autism mom life doesn’t have to mean a joy-less over complicated life. And, I finally started to feel better about my circumstances and started showing up as the best mom and wife I could be.
Let’s say no to #allthetherapies until you thoroughly hash out which one is best for your child and your family.
Let’s stop doing what has become the norm in autism motherhood,
And let’s live out the best version of YOU.
And while mom guilt is real, I don’t want you to think of this as taking money away from therapy for your child, but think of it as pouring money into your child’s therapy. Because you’re not only his/her number one champion, you’re also doing therapy day in and day out. You will always be your child’s greatest teacher and therapist.
This is a place where you can come and receive a wealth of information to enrich your daily life and learn valuable tools and coping strategies when presented with life's challenges. This group provided a loving, supportive and most importantly nonjudgmental platform that allows you to talk openly and feel heard as well as receive loving advice from everyone's experience. You will make lasting deep relationships like I have in this group.
The group is a sacred protected space to vent, share how your week went, what successes and challenges you have had with your child; and the group gives ideas and suggestions to one another. Since joining the group, I have been able to balance care for my child and self care. I usually am motivated better in a group setting and followed through on each month’s area of focus. I wouldn't have started without this group of amazing mamas.
Michelle is an Autism mom and she gets it. You get real interaction with her and it has been the most encouraging and empowering experience in my journey to a thriving motherhood and getting my sanity back.
With a clear focus area for each month, and a supportive community to keep me accountable, this has helped me make positive changes.
I love this community! It's so awesome. I've been a stay at home mom for 12 years now, and have been trying to figure out who I am outside of being a caregiver and mom of four. I sincerely appreciate everyone's kindness and the judgement-free community. I love the support from my fellow autism mamas.
