Hi There

I’m Patience and like many of you I wear A LOT of hats. Therapist, speaker, writer, wife, mother, and military spouse. Motherhood can take you on a wild ride mentally, emotionally, & physically, but don’t be alarmed because you do not have to go through this journey alone. WHOA MAMA was created to offer a safe place for you to embrace the good, bad, and even the ugly side of motherhood. If you’re expecting, recently postpartum, mother of multiple children, or a support person WHOA MAMA is a space where you can let your hair down and breath.

Whether you are looking for a speaker for your next event, tips from the blog, or individual services I’m thrilled you are here, and hope you stay awhile.

Let’s work Together


Do you want to take your event to the next level? Let’s work together to inspire, empower, and ignite change within your community.

Therapy & Coaching

Stop surviving and start thriving without compromising your mental health. Schedule a free 15 minute consultation to see if we’re a good fit.

Freelance Writing

I specialize in writing articles and blog posts on mental health, motherhood, parenting, military & lifestyle. Share your project details.

As I prepare for maternity leave I am still accepting speaking & writing inquirers. Unfortunately, I am no longer accepting new individual therapy or coaching clients until I return from leave.
