Finally a way out of the chaos, the burnout, the confusion!

Helping adoptive moms be centered and confident in their parenting role

As an adoptive mom of 11 years, I know through personal experience the changes and adjustments that need to be made in order to make this journey sustainable for everyone in the family.  I’ve helped other adoptive moms gain the tools and confidence they needed to help their children.  My approach starts with guiding you along a path to make transformational shifts in yourself.  These changes may be recognizing unhealthy parenting patterns from your own past, learning to look deeper into the “why” behind your kid's behavior, and creating some serious support and self-care routines in your life.  This process will enable you to parent from a more grounded place and navigate the daily challenges of life with a trauma informed lens.

A. Shapiro's Testimonial

I initially signed up to work with Jessica as I was having some difficulties in the first part of adoptive motherhood and wanted some guidance from someone with specific experience with adoption to overcome the anxiety and worries of this new step. Because of my work with Jessica, I was able to view my situation from an outside, calm, organized and relevant perspective. I learned a lot of practical tools for organization, but also more spiritual and mindful practices to help me throughout my day - and of course the nutrition angle makes for a holistic process.  The biggest tangible change I have noticed since starting to work with Jessica is a huge increase in confidence of being a capable mother.  I now know that I am not alone, that my feelings are not unusual, and I can learn from someone else's experience. And now I have specific tools, thought processes and methods to overcome any lack of confidence or negative thoughts.
