A Mother and So Much More!

You’re smart, creative, ambitious and strong.

You love your children and your partner…and you know being a mother is the single MOST IMPORTANT job you will ever have.

Yet, there are times when the demands of motherhood overwhelm you and instead of resting OR asking for help you find yourself over-the-top busy and overwhelmed.

You try to manage everything and there are days when you feel stuck, discouraged and isolated.

It hurts..…especially when friends and family live far away.

On most days, you don’t have time to evaluate because you ZOOM through life.

Finding the energy to think about change seems impossible and support seems out of reach.

You know there’s more and in a flash……you can feel guilty about longing for it.

You’re not alone!

As wives, mothers, and professionals, we’ve had our own moments of questioning and wondering and we understand exactly how you feel.

In fact, we’ve been talking about this a lot recently and we wondered…..how we could support other women walking thru their own confusion and concerns.

That’s why we created 

A Mother and So Much More!

We want to invite you to join us in this NO JUDGEMENT ZONE. It’s an opportunity to take time and explore the intelligence of your own HEART.

Yes, contact me and let’s get started!

In this small, intimate group of nurturing women, you’ll ask yourself important questions like:

  • Who am I?
  • What do I want?
  • What’s next for me?
  • What’s my VISION for myself? For my family?
  • Am I GROWING creatively, intellectually and spiritually?
  • Am I spending time and energy well?
  • How do I define SUCCESS?
  • How do I measure success?
  • How do I keep all the parts of my life in BALANCE?
  • How do I make changes without compromising connections with the people I LOVE?
  • Am I having FUN and enjoying my life?

These are important questions!

Putting yourself first and setting aside time for this kind of exploration is a challenging and courageous act. It can even seem selfish at first glance.

But it’s not. It’s essential.

Why? Because it’s hard to be of service to your family, friends and co-workers if you’ve lost touch with your inner self.

We’ve created A Mother And So Much More precisely for you …It’s a safe place where we can talk about these things with heart, soul and integrity.

It’s a powerful experience when like-minded women get together to explore new ideas.

We’re committed to supporting you and sharing everything we’ve learned and we’re not suggesting this will be easy. But we promise to make it fun.

And, we promise to challenge you in a gentle and caring way.


What we know for sure is that……when you take time to re-connect with your inner self and recognize you’re a mother and so much more, you can step off the roller-coaster and start moving forward.

You may want to take giant leaps….but we’ve noticed that reaching and growing in small, meaningful ways adds up and makes a huge difference over time……

Small steps……But always moving forward!

We will meet twice a month and be available to you through email. You can also add individual sessions if you like.

Will this work for me?

This is a question most women will have. So, let’s break it down.

At Wellness we know how to support women, couples and families and we have a track record unlike anyone else.

Our group (MASMM) works when you do. What you put into it – is what you’ll get out of it.

As you think about participating, trust your intuition and ask yourself……are you:

  • Frustrated with yourself and those around you?
  • Stuck in a routine that doesn’t serve your highest self?
  • Trying to manage everything? Including your partner?
  • Unable to get help OR even ask for it?
  • Spinning your wheels and exhausting yourself?
  • Trying to get others to understand?
  • Feeling hurt, alone and keeping it all inside?
  • Trying to carve out time for yourself only to find yourself accommodating others instead?
  • Showing up in the world as less than your best self?

Some of the women participating in our gatherings will be new moms; total newbies who are scared and confused. Other women will have young children just starting school and they are transitioning into a new chapter of life.

Whether you’re a mother who wants to stay at home, resume a career, launch a home based business, go back to college or you already have an advanced degree, you will find this material heart centered.

Our program is goal oriented, idea generating and designed to create JOY for you while you welcome this new role called ‘motherhood’ into your life.

In our series of warm nurturing gatherings you will :

  • Hear stories of experience, strength, and HOPE.
  • Talk about your dreams and create a vision.
  • Share IDEAS about life, parenting and discover new strategies for living a fuller life.
  • Be seen and heard as your whole and AUTHENTIC self.
  • Discover how to lower anxiety so you can lead a calmer, more loving life.
  • Practice great self-care so you can be there more fully for your family.
  • Focus on the FUTURE and what’s next.
  • Embrace change and let go of the fight.
  • Work hard. Be playful.
  • Enjoy time set aside just for YOU!

Imagine taking time to focus on the beauty and power of living a FULL and meaningful life.

Tapping into your strength, trusting your intuition, being courageous and following your HEART are things women dream about but they’re hard to do alone..

So, if you feel excited or maybe even a little scared about joining us – awesome!  Bring it on!

Beth McCain, M.A.

Beth McCainAt 40, my life has finally come into focus! After college, I worked in the business world for 10 years. Over time, I realized that my interest in self-help books, psychology, and my passion for people could mean there is a more fulfilling career out there for me.

After a lot of thought, I decided to go for it and enrolled in graduate school. I was terrified and unsure about what was next but I took the risk anyhow and ended up falling in love with my new career as a Marriage and Family Therapist.

Then, in 2015, two days before my 40th birthday, I gave birth to my beautiful daughter and life, as I knew it, changed forever.

At first, it was almost impossible to focus on anything except this new and precious little girl my husband and I brought into the world. I was obsessed with her safety and well-being. At the same time I was feeling sad, lonely, and guilty for wanting a more complete existence. It was a difficult time for me and, with support, I found my way through the crisis. Today, I know I’m not only a good mother, but my life beyond motherhood has a profound and positive impact on my daughter. My life is full and meaningful today. My family is a top priority and I’ve finally been able to strike a balance between career and family life. I love making my husband laugh, am an avid sports fan and I look forward to meeting you!

Olga Pisarskiy, M.A.

Olga Pisarskiy, M.A.For me, being committed to living a full life means family and so much more. Professionally I work part-time as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, helping couples connect. Personally, I have been married to a wonderful man for nearly 11 years and we have two adventurous little boys, 4 and 2 years old. Our home – and our lives – are full of love and chaos.

Work and family take up lots of time and energy and I approach life head on each day. I cultivate interests of my own that include; quality time with precious friends, retail therapy, throwing heavy weights around at the gym, and occasional spa days! For me, coffee, wine, and dark chocolate are necessities of life!

All these wonderful parts of my life come together beautifully, yet there are times when I feel stuck, overwhelmed and exhausted. My life is rich and fulfilling and I am determined to stay balanced and grounded. Can you relate?

You are here for a reason and I love the fact that you are reading this right now! It tells me you want something more too and that you are willing to invest in yourself. It tells me you are a seeker and long to live a whole, meaningful life. I am a mother and so much more and I look forward to meeting you soon!
