Hi, my name is Deb Kartz, the founder of Healing Moms Journey. Since 2002 I've been working with pre-adolescence and teens in various capacities, Autism, Anxiety, ADHD, Non-compliant Disorders, ODD, Trauma, and learning disabilities. Since then, I have worked with busy moms struggling with their children and who want to reclaim their energy, time, and life. They desperately seek to find a healthy balance between life's everyday challenges and dealing with their challenging children. Mom's want to find the time for themselves so they can show up as the high-functioning woman they know they can be. They are tired of the constant battles with their children and tired of hearing society's perception of a mother's role. Did you know children are lost in their world and seek an attachment to be confident and have the self-esteem to grow?

I wanted a deeper understanding of how children see the world through their eyes, how our mental wellness impacts our children, and how we can cope as parents. I needed to broaden my knowledge. I decided to pursue my Psychology of Counselling to have the skills to help my children with their challenges. I furthered my education as a Parent and Wellness Coach, Personal Trainer, and  Nutrition Coach. The prospect to bring all this together excites me in helping moms with their mental wellness and parenting for the sole purpose of…

Being able to build loving relationships and enhance the well-being within themselves and in their children.

I'm currently working with moms struggling with their children and who want to find a healthy balance between family, life, and work. These moms have the same fear and anxiety as I did. I have struggled with my mental wellness as a working single mom. I couldn't get the help and support I desperately needed to find that healthy balance between my children and work and not breakdown. Everywhere I turned, the doors were closed on me. People and professionals said, "You need to put your foot down!" We know that doesn't work! Children become defiant when you try to take an authoritarian approach! I knew there had to be a way to go from chaos to calm.

You DO NOT need to go through the same pain and agony as I did. This is where I can help you make positive changes in your mental health and your children's behavior, so you can enjoy the life you deserve.

If mom isn't okay, 

then no one is okay.
