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! You are not on this journey alone.

I created WHOA MAMA to give you a safe space to embrace the good, bad, and even the ugly sides of motherhood. It is my mission to equip women with simple but effective tools, so they can stop surviving and start thriving, in motherhood and life without compromising their mental health.

If you are considering having children, expecting, recently postpartum, a mother of multiple children, or support person WHOA MAMA is a space where you can let your hair down and just breath.

Whether you are looking for a speaker for your next event, mental health tips from my blog, or individual services I am thrilled you are here.

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.
