You run off coffee until it's acceptable to drink wine. 

Where the moments are precious and pure, the hidden burdens of motherhood and society's expectations leave you feeling overwhelmed, lonely, and falling behind.

With a to-do list a mile long and insufficient time in a day, you're desperate to unwind and quiet the noise in your head. 

You're intrigued by the notion of experiencing motherhood without alcohol, yet the social stigma, labels, and the thought of quitting drinking permanently feel too big.

that's where I come in!

YOU'RE IN THE THICK OF IT...

Michelle's stellar expertise and reputation made working with her a no-brainer. Of course, all the moms want to work with her; she's the best. 

- Amy

A pattern of occasional and controlled drinking gradually evolved into a daily routine and became my primary method of coping. I was aware that my relationship with alcohol was unhealthy, yet my objective was not to quit entirely but to regain control.

Over several years, my attempts at moderation were met with resounding failure as the inevitable consequences piled up. As an adult orphan, I understood the challenges of not having parents, and I realized I was subjecting my children to a similar experience. On November 24th, 2016, I awoke burdened with profound shame and regret, marking the last such morning. As I navigated the journey of sobriety in a culture that often glorifies alcohol, I developed a solution that I wish I had access to when seeking help.



Motherhood hit me like a ton of bricks. 

i can help becuase I've been therE.

Working with Michelle has undoubtedly been the most valuable investment I've ever made. Thanks to her, my husband and children now have the wife and mother they deserve – healthy, present, and back in action. My gratitude knows no bounds.

Morning gratitude, coffee, avo toast, barre class, tons of h2o, skincare routine, evening magnesium and journaling. 

daily rituals:

Near the water, target, starbucks,  country dancing, traveling the world with my family. 

YOU CAN FIND ME:

Mommy juice culture, burnout, perfectionism, comparison, gossip, living out of obligation.

Strong coffee, straight talk, slow mornings, sparkling water, short emails, mocktails, being of service.  

I BELIEVE IN:

I specialize in recovery coaching designed for busy moms looking to break free from alcohol and reclaim their lives. With over two decades of professional experience and seven years of continuous sobriety, I help moms fed up with drinking simplify sobriety with confidence and ease.
