You Haven't Lost them.
They are simply bottle-Necked behind stress, perfectionism, and responsibility overload.
Motherhood requires a lot of sacrifice, but it doesn't require you to sacrifice your whole self. This program is for women who feel like they've lost themselves to the demands of motherhood and want to stake claim to their lives again. Together, we will dedicate ourselves to creating days that prioritize happiness and meaning, which benefits us and our families.

about The program
This program is for women who don't Have Lots of spare Time on their hands,
but need to prioritize their well-Being EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
The core of this program is you writing a few minutes per day using short morning and evening prompts I've created to help you break down what specific things you need to create a day that feel good to live. The prompts are based on positive psychology, mindfulness, and the realities of motherhood. Each day YOU will decide what is important, what is not, and what you want to do to make this day a good one.
You will have a super cool interactive online journal where you can post your writing privately or share it with the community, which has the awesome benefit of showing you that we all struggle with the same things! You also have the options of sharing just with me, or posting anonymously. You decide how private or public you want each entry to be.
You will get an email per day to inspire and encourage you to make each day count, not to tell you to do more stuff.
Each week you can come to a live coaching call (Weds at 930am PT/ 1230pm ET) to get guidance and support as you go through the process.
What is included:
- One-on-one online coaching with me for 28-days
- A printable workbook with the prompts and program guide
- Two custom journal prompts to use each day, morning and evening
- An engaged community of women with similar desires and struggles
- Daily emails for inspiration and support
- Weekly coaching calls on Weds 930am PT/1230pm ET
- Alumni savings on all future sessions
you will discover that most of keeps you busy doesn't need to be done and doesn't bring you joy.
You will have the courage and support to do less and do what matter.
You will have help discovering what lights you up.
Your Happiness Matters.

About me - dr. jessica
I'm a mom, psychologist, total goofball, and major skeptic of self-help mumbo-jumbo. I enjoy being a catalyst in women's lives by helping them find the smallest necessary action to transform how they feel about themselves and their choices. You can read more about me and my work here.
When are the community calls? What if I can't make them?
We will meet four Wednesdays in a row at 930am PT/ 1230pm ET. The calls will run up to 90 minutes. You don't have to be on the calls to benefit from the program; the calls simply provide an additional layer of community and the opportunity for live coaching. Recordings will be posted after each call.
I've tried journaling before and never stick with it. How would this be different?
You will be doing it with a group to keep you inspired, motivated, and accountable to yourself. You will also have specific journaling prompts that are enjoyable, simple, and productive so you will stay connected to the intention of doing this practice. Lastly, I will be personally responsible for checking in on you and helping you keep the commitments you made to yourself.
I don't want to share all my dirty laundry with strangers. How private is it?
You get to choose how much you share. Some people write exclusively in their paper journals and others share each post. Still others share their evenings posts but keep their morning ones private, and vice versa. Research shows that sharing your commitments makes them you more likely to succeed in accomplishing them, so I encourage members to connect with the group in some way, either on the calls or in the online forum, but you get to choose what and how much you share.
Is there a Facebook group?
No. I use a highly secure online journaling program for people to connect with one another, for a couple reasons. First, it is more private and you have control over how you share your posts - anonymously, keep them private, share just with me, or share with the group. Secondly, I find that Facebook is a major distraction that interferes with women connecting with themselves, so I think it's very productive to have an alternative place to connect online where everyone there is committed to doing important work. Many participants find that the online journal serves as a productive alternative to social media.
You're a psychologist, does this count as therapy?
This program is a combination of online education and support group, and does not qualify as therapy. It is not meant to treat any mental illness, but rather support you in crafting days that prioritize joy and meaning. Many people find this program is a great addition to their personal therapy, but it is not a replacement. If you feel like you need more psychotherapy, please seek out a local mental health provider.
What if I can't keep up?
Many of us have a habit of beating ourselves up when we fall away from our commitments. This process is about unlearning those habits. Instead of beating yourself up, reconnect to what you most want and do something that is easy and enjoyable and serves your best self. I have designed the program to be done in 4 minutes per day, 2 in the morning and 2 in the evening, which should be doable for most. It doesn't matter if you write every single day, it's about noticing how you're spending your time and energy and choosing what actions you want to take.
What's your refund policy?
If you find that now isn't the right time for you to do the program, or it's not what you were looking for, please let me know within the first 7 days and I will issue a full refund or credit you for a future program.
take care of yourself everyday.
