Hi there. I'm Peg, trained psychotherapist & self-care coach (BA in PSY + MA in professional counseling PSY), wife of 17 years, and empath-INFJ mom of two beautiful boys. Once upon a time, I used to do all-the-things and considered multi-tasking a "strength", even putting it on my resume ha. Over the years I've come to intimately understand my sensitive nature, accept it for the beautiful gift that it is, and embrace a more simple, care-abundant lifestyle.
Experiencing crippling depression and anxiety as a new mom was a wake-up call like no other. It forced me to re-evaluate my life choices and make some
tough decisions. I'd always been sensitive but the gift of motherhood shifted my needs in a way I hadn't experienced before. As a deeply caring, sensitive soul I thought it my duty to nurture those I loved above all else...even at the expense of my own wellbeing.
In hindsight, I see clearly the grave mistake and injustice I did myself as well as my family. Passively complicit in my own undoing, I vowed to begin radically showing up for myself like I did for those I loved. And, I promised myself I'd help other women do the same. It's my hope to get to know and support you on your own remarkable journey.
Writing has been a passion of mine as long as I can remember. I'm working on a psychological thriller to be finished in 2020 (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!
There's absolutely no place I'd rather be than on or by the open sea. I dream of moving to Kiawah Island, SC (my family has been vacationing there since I was a little girl) or any coastal paradise truth be told!...living out my days with salty hair and sandy toes.
I'm obsessed with books, reading about two per week (thank you Kindle Unlimited!). Topping my list are psychological thrillers and personal development...a forever student of life and lover of dark plot twists.
I'm more of a savory girl but am totally obsessed with key lime pie. If it's on the menu I've got to have it...on a never ending quest for the perfect slice!
I've been practicing minimalism and Feng Shui for almost 25 years...way before it was even a thing. I believe my soul has always naturally craved it because of the soothing, calming effects on the sensitive psyche.
Fun fact...I was on my college hip-hop dance team...competing...baggy jeans, cocked baseball caps and all (also obsessed with 70s & 80s hits). So basically...if there's music...my body is movin'! Those were the days...I miss you 1995!
