Stopping the Spiral

Combating Mom-Guilt

This course is about empowering moms - exploring the essential tools to break free from the cycles of negative thoughts that often cloud our daily lives.

We begin this course exploring the struggles many of us face, shedding light on the profound impact of self-doubt and guilt on our emotions and behaviors. We delve into the concept of core beliefs, helping us trace their origins to childhood and how they continue to shape our lives, particularly in the realm of parenting.

Finally, we review practical strategies for changing those negative thoughts and beliefs. Together, we'll practice putting our thoughts on trial, practicing neutrality, and rewriting our mental scripts with a more empowering perspective.

"Wow- it feels like I just took a black-belt self defense class
for my thought life! 
Carrie was incredible at walking me through my negative thought patterns and using a perfect culmination of questions, images and analogies to help me really understand the concept she was teaching and feel like I truly have a grasp on how I can change!

Seriously shocking at how much I learned about myself and how I can overcome my pattern of mom guilt."
-Shannon G. (mother of  3)
