all i wanted was to feel like myself again...& i want to help you do the same.

Hi! I'm peg

Did your life change after kids...but, not in a cute, Rom-com kinda way? From the outside it looks like you have it all but on the inside you're...

Overwhelmed, anxious, & exhausted, juggling all-the-things...not to mention unfulfilled & drowning in guilt...wishing you could just feel better but don't know where to start.

You wonder...
Will I ever feel like myself again?

I feel you. Because I was you...

"Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves."

 - Henry David Thoreau

     i there. I'm Peg, trained psychotherapist & resilience coach (BA PSY + MA Professional Counseling PSY), wife of 18 years, and empath-INFJ mom of two beautiful boys. Values I live by: integrity, kindness, growth, family, and keeping it real.

Once upon a time, I had my shit together. I was a crazy-happy-ambitious-go-getter with larger than life dreams...working two jobs while putting myself through grad school full time, graduating top of my class, building my first home at 25, finding love & marriage at 28...the sky was the limit...until suddenly it wasn't. 

At 31, I launched my first business, had a baby, and spread myself thin. Neglecting my own needs, I drifted slowly into the dark abyss of PPD&A (postpartum depression and anxiety), a crippling, all-consuming, shame-laden pain like I'd never experienced. And as a cherry-on-top, the recession hit, devastating us financially. It was just all too much.

I withdrew from those I loved and for the first time in my life felt completely isolated, overwhelmed, and helpless. I no longer recognized the woman staring back at me in the mirror.


With a deep knowing that I had to find her again, my journey began...not the steady climb of a mountainside but a rocky ride in a vast, unpredictable, and stormy ocean. With time, perseverance, lots of gains and setbacks, I eventually created momentum...restoring my resilience, confidence, and faith in myself...reclaiming my life.

With a renewed sense of inner peace, joy, and hope for the future, I was able to finally start living my life again instead of simply surviving. And, I promised myself I'd help other women do the same...sparing them the unnecessary suffering and pain of figuring it out alone.

I've been married 18 years.

There's nothing more important to me in this world than my family. We're kinda homebodies...we love game night, watching movies, and just grillin' + chillin' in the backyard. #thesimplelife :)

02.

i have 2 psych degrees.

A BA in Psychology + an MA in Professional Counseling Psychology. I've worn many different hats over the years: waitress, photographer, psychotherapist but first and foremost I love people. I’m fascinated by how our minds work and why we do what we do.

03.

i'm writing a novel.

Writing has been a passion of mine my entire life. I'm working on a psychological thriller to be finished in 2021 (I've also got a non-fiction book in the works). It's my dream to see one of my books on the NY Times bestseller list. Stay tuned!

04.

i read about 100 books a year.

Not only do I have a passion for writing but I'm obsessed with books, reading about two per week (thank you Kindle Unlimited!). I love juicy fiction and personal development...I'm always looking to grow and love a dark plot twist. My favorite genre? Psychological thrillers of 'course!

05.

i was on my college hip-hop dance team.

Girl, if the music is on...my booty is a shakin'! Our team would travel and compete, baggy jeans, cocked baseball caps and all. Those were the days...I miss you 1995!

06.

i was born in dubai.

People get surprisingly excited when I share this fact but I'm not fancy...I swear ;) I've lived in the states most of my life making my way from NYC down to Atlanta. Being Persian, I feel very blessed to have grown up with a different cultural perspective.
