About Exhaustion…

I’m right there with you.

For the past 15 years, I’ve been helping exhausted women, like you, improve their relationships and restore their sanity.

It took me years to discover I was suffering from Exhausted Woman’s Syndrome.  (It seems so obvious now.)

Afterall, I’m a working woman with a husband, three teenagers, a bird and five cats.  My husband is a busy attorney, our son has ADHD, one daughter is a perfectionist and the other loves drama.  For fun, I volunteer at my kid’s school, teach an occasional Bible study, garden, re-finish furniture, sew whatever suits my fancy, cook recipes found on Pinterest and have lunch with my friends.  Life is a bit hectic.

My work as a full-time private practice counselor helping others should have highlighted my own exhaustion. But it didn’t.

Instead, I just keep plowing through each day until I crashed.  It was such an ordinary moment with no huge trauma but it was the final straw that broke my back.  Everything stopped.

Through a weird trail of events, I found myself standing with a broken heel in the middle of a busy road holding my daughter’s shoe while it was pouring rain.  I couldn’t take it anymore and the whole world just seemed to halt.

Then it hit me…I was exhausted.  I needed help.

But like you there is not a lot of extra time floating around in my schedule or large sums of extra money in our budget.  So this site was created out of my own exhaustion.

Now I want to help you.

That is what this blog is all about, helping you improve your life and your relationships.  So sit back, read, ponder, and change.

It’s a bit frightening at first but the results are worth the effort.  Let me know your struggles.  I’d love to hear from you.  Just type in your contact information and you will be placed on my mailing list to receive specials reserved only for you.

    I used to compare myself to the clown following, and cleaning up, after the elephant. I don’t know what the future will bring, but anything is better than the crazy street I lived on with my narcissistic husband.
