Hey, I’m Patience!

I’m the Mama, Therapist, Speaker, and Writer behind WHOA MAMA. In addition to everything surrounding mental wellness here are a few fun facts about me.

  • I’ve been a part of a military family for as long as I can remember. First as a Navy kid and now as an Air Force spouse. Moving is second nature to me.
  • I’m a big time foodie! I will try anything once and LOVE hot wings.
  • If I could live at a music festival I would.
  • Teaching complex mental health tools in a simple way gives me life. I’m a master at avoiding clinical terms and breaking it down to a kindergarten level.
  • I had my first son in 2019, the second in August 2021, and both of their initials are RAR.
  • I became a Yoga junkie in 2019 after trying it for the 3rd time.

Since we are getting to know each other can I ask you an honest question? Have you ever felt trapped? I do not mean physically, but mentally & emotionally held captive by your life?

I have!

At one point I placed myself on the back burner, and put most of my time, energy, and most importantly my thoughts into my family. You may be thinking, but “you’re a wife and mother so why is that bad?” But that was the problem. I put all my time into my family and not myself.

As a mother it is common to give 100% of yourself to your family. But after investing 100% of your time into others, how much have you invested in yourself?

My entire career has focused on helping my clients improve their lives by assisting them in uncovering and leveraging their own strengths. I offer mental wellness coaching & therapy to help women who set their needs aside deal with feelings of guilt, uncertainty, and self-doubt. By helping them decrease their negative self-talk & limiting beliefs I help create a space where they can get out of their own way and be there for themselves the same way they are for their families. WHOA MAMA was created to provide you with a supportive, guilt free, and productive space to experience personal growth.

I provide my clients with the confidence to reclaim their personal identities and prioritize their mental health to live a more balanced life. My background as a Certified Professional Coach & Licensed Professional Counselor with specialized training in perinatal mood disorders has allowed me to be successful in assisting my clients reach their goals by utilizing the power of connection and collaboration as the foundation of our professional relationship.

Your success is highly dependent on you finding the right provider; therefore, I offer a free 15-minute consultation to discuss the reason you are seeking services and to determine if I am the right fit for you. If you want to discuss how we can create a space for you to not only to survive but thrive use the link below to set up a time for us to chat. Mama, I would love to be a part of your success story.
