WHAT IS MOTHER-DAUGHTER COACHING?

Mother-Daughter Sessions:

The Mother-Daughter relationship is one of the most profound and impactful relationships of our lives. It lives on intergenerationally as we pass along our traditions, values, attitudes, behaviors, and our genetics. Moms and daughters have so much pressure put on their relationship by society and from within themselves which only adds to the dynamics that exist within your relationship. Women have been told for centuries, they are too sensitive, too weak, too emotional, asking for too much, being too much, not giving enough, not nice enough, too loud, not working enough, working too much, not pretty enough, thin enough, too sexy, too uptight, too bossy, too quiet…you get it and have experienced at least some of it. All of  these societal demands and criticisms of women naturally show up in the relationship between moms and daughters, grandmothers and granddaughters, sisters; how can they not!? This external pressure causes the mother-daughter relationship to become a pressure cooker and thus the stereotype of the troubled mother-daughter relationship ensues.

With Mother-Daughter sessions you and your mom/daughter have a judgement free, compassion filled space to finally address the spoken and unspoken needs you have within your relationship. You decide how you want to move forward in relationship with one another. We come to this table together, wanting connection, wanting healthy bonds, wanting to make things feel better and this is often the common ground mothers and daughters stand on together. How to heal the past, how to move through years of challenges, past hurts, miscommunications, misunderstandings, this is where I come in. I am a certified Mother-Daughter Coach and a licensed therapist I guide clients through this process of moving your relationship from where it’s always been to a direction you want to be taking your relationship, helping you to feel truly seen and heard.

When we heal ourselves and the mother-daughter line, we can free ourselves from ingrained generational patterns and begin to pass along new ways of interacting, new attitudes, ones that feel supportive and life-giving rather than depleting.  You can choose to live differently for yourself and within your mother-daughter relationship. You can break free from the way things have always been and start anew, it’s not ever too late, whether you are 72 or 22.

Individual Support for Adult Daughters who are estranged from their mothers:

What if I don’t have a relationship with my mom anymore and she is still alive? It is far more common than discussed to have you lost the connection with your mom due to mental illness, dementia, addiction, re-marriage, re-locating or just for reasons not fully known and understood. I help daughters through this, too. You’re experiencing a unique type of loss known as ambiguous loss. It is different from losing someone who has died. This type of loss is more confusing, there is lack of closure, and our society doesn’t understand this type of loss well enough to support individuals through it. Please know that you are not alone and you can heal through this and learn how to live a meaningful life even with your mom absent from your life.
