Hello Loving Parent. I’m Dominique.
I see you in your devotion. And I see you in your struggle. ❤
Maybe You’re a Loving Parent In Survival Mode
Maybe you’re in survival mode, perpetually putting off your needs, goals, and desires. Your children, no matter what their age, demand your presence and you want to give it to them. You strive to be empathic, conscious, and connected.
Yet the needs of the family never end, and in all of that pouring out of love and devotion, day and night, night and day, you tend to get exhausted, overwhelmed, and stressed. And/or anxious, angry, depressed…
There really is a TON of love in your family!
At the same time, you forget about YOU. As time goes on, you forget to ensure that your life is an expression of your bright loving spirit. You forget to prioritize joy and play.
If you’re like the rest of us parents, you get stuck…
Maybe You’re Numbing Your Stress
Maybe along the way, as the months and years go on, you accumulate habits and behaviors that serve to numb your stress. You find temporary happiness in these escape mechanisms, and you survive like this and it feels like it works.
Ice Cream, Scrolling on Facebook, Alcohol, Chocolate, Coffee, Shopping, Staying Busy, Staying Up Late at Night. Netflix. Maybe you’re even addicted to your workout routine or your health regimen. You’ve developed your own unique ritual that gratifies a part of you, and you seek out this ritual daily.
Other parents are going through the same thing, so it’s normal. And actually IT IS OKAY to just survive! It’s a valid choice to numb the pain for a little while…
But only for so long… Because what’s happening is you’re accumulating guilt, frustration, anxiety, sadness, and layers of habits. Avoiding Truth, ignoring reminders, stalling to fulfill your ecstatic life purpose, to sink into your BEING, to shine out your inherent radiance.
In the intensity of parenting, and in the busyness of life, you lose touch with important qualities of your soul.
Maybe You’ve Found Friends to Commiserate With, But…
You’ve got some really good excuses too! Not many people, if any at all, are questioning your stuckness because you’re doing what parents do. They get swamped in the service of parenthood. It is understandable to most loved ones that you are hanging out, getting by, stalling, and WAITING.
You find people in your life to commiserate with, and complain to. They understand, they listen, they care. It really helps to connect. Heart Emoticon. (((Virtual Hug)))
And, at the same time, these other parents can be swamped too, so they might not have the skill or ability or intention to actually help you OUT of the swamp. It’s not their fault, but it’s just not their goal or skillset at the moment…
Maybe There’s Substantial Support Out There For You
This is where I come in. This is where I would like to help if you’ll let me.
I’m a mom to two young children, and by the grace of God and by the will of my spirit — SOMEHOW OR ANOTHER — I’m on the other side of that stressed-numbed-and-waiting paradigm. I went from anxious and angry to making a choice to honor my honest truth, to living playfully and connected to my spiritual purpose. Read the whole story of my transformation here.
I’m available to support you out of the cycle of stressed-overwhelmed-exhausted-numbing-ignoring-waiting-feeling-like-a-victim.
This is Your Life and It Matters
You have a unique journey ahead of you that’s unlike any other parent out there. And despite having read almost ALL the parenting books, and having subscribed to 50 blogs, and even experiencing successes and connection and joy here and there — you might be realizing you need something substantial to get you to a higher stage of THRIVING.
I’m ready and excited to meet you at this juncture, in your process of creating a serious and substantial breakthrough. OR, maybe you’re going to create a series of tiny breakthroughs that add up to a life you’re proud of! I’m so there cheering you on!
I’ll be glad to walk a little ways with you, as your personal life coach.
What Awaits You on the Other Side of Coping and Surviving?
You and your children deserve the FULL EXPRESSION of you – shining, celebrating, and playing as you go about your life.
I realize there are very real obstacles in your life and I’m also taking a stand for you. I do not believe you are powerless. Where there’s a will there’s a way! You do not have to be chronically stressed, exhausted, and overwhelmed. You do not have to be dissatisfied. You do not have to wait to experience the joy of your soul.
Your Breakthrough Process
My support to you as your coach is 2-fold. 1) I will hold non-judgmental space for WHEREVER you are at. YOU are the expert in your life and YOU know where you need to focus, at what pace you want to move, what are your goals, what you want and need. 2) When needed, I can offer tips and guidance in terms of goal setting, relationships with children, communication skills, and spiritual support. (A complete list of my services is below.)
I’m here to follow your lead, and if you’re swimming in the dark sometimes, I’ve got some light to share as we get you out of the murkiness that can be parenting sometimes!
Parents who work with me are getting a woman who has intensively worked and PLAYED with children for 17+ years of her life. You are also getting someone who has dived, and dived fully and completely (and still dives fully and completely!), into personal growth for the past 14 years of her life.
The uncovering of your shining spirit is a natural process that will ABSOLUTELY take place under the right conditions. Breakthroughs are your birthright!
I realize the complexities of being in a partnership, how there’s pressure in family life, and what it takes to REACH BEYOND the communication barriers and create closeness and understanding with your partner.
More About Me
I’ve been through extensive communication, counseling, and coach training during the last 14 years of my life: Reevaluation Counseling teacher, Bachelor of Social Work, Domestic Violence Advocate and Counseling, Transformative Communication training and coach training with Satvatove Institute.
But really, above all of the training is my on-the-job experience playing with children. It’s my life’s work. I SO get them. Half of the reason I do what I do is because I love kids so much. I love parents too, don’t worry! 🙂 Plenty of love in this heart to go around!
I’m here for parents who are really READY for a life of purpose, joy, and play. Not later, but now.
I pray that I can serve God by utilizing my gifts, skills, and knowledge to serve you.
But I want to be real with you. I’m not perfect. I make mistakes all the time. I experience challenges, emotions, fear, etc. I’m a real person, I’m on a journey too, and at the same time, I have a lot to offer so I’m giving what I’ve got. Amazing thing is, when I serve you, the joy comes back to me exponentially. Because this is MY life purpose. WIN-WIN.
Parents Can and Do Break Through!
I see the pain of parents and children. Stressed parents. Stressed kids. And it doesn’t have to be this way.
I also see parents who are quite skilled with parenting, but there’s some life areas that are struggling to thrive. So what YOUR personal growth looks like is completely unique, and valid. You don’t need to be at rock bottom to get support.
