Georgia’s specialty is working with young mothers and women in transitional phases. Georgia understands the unique challenges that mothers are faced with- learning to juggle time, energy, commitment, and patience, usually with little recognition or reward for yourself. As a mother you are wearing many hats, but the hardest part of the journey is feeling like you are alone. Georgia is passionate about empowering women to become their authentic self and acknowledge the strengths they often overlook in themselves.
