Mommying + Working ≠ Guilt

Join “The Thriving Working Mom” mastery program, a 6-week interactive work-life balance course designed exclusively for frum working moms.

Learn how to access joy and peace of mind — even while juggling a houseful of kids and a demanding work schedule.

You’re always running.

Running to work.

Running to prepare supper.

Running to put your kids on the bus.

Running to put a load in the machine.

Just running the endless hamster wheel.

And throughout your day:

You worry

Do my kids feel like they’re missing out because I’m gone for so many hours of the day?

You compare

Am I the only one who’s always on the verge of collapse – and who never has it all together?

You set high expectations

Am I being the best and doing my utmost – for my family and my job?

Here’s a not-so-little secret

Both working moms and Stay-at-home-moms struggle with “imposter parenting” at times — that insidious inner voice saying “You don’t know what you’re doing. You’re an awful parent!”

Here’s an even bigger secret

Your responsibilities aren’t going away. Yet, within the constraints of what you can’t change, there’s so much you can.


“I interviewed Sarah on my podcast, LifeWorks, and was blown away. She’s relatable and approachable and gives things over in an easy-to-understand fashion. Talking to her is like schmoozing with a good friend. She offered so many insightful and eye-opening tips, explaining the psychology behind working moms’ feelings and experiences. I’m a big believer in utilizing tips and techniques to reduce stress and improve your quality of life. If you’re ready to take control of what you can change, to increase your level of calm and decrease stress, I encourage you to take Sarah’s course.”

Negative Self Talk

“Yikes! I’m working till 11:30 on this short Friday, and I still need to cook the whole Shabbos! Why didn’t I cook in advance?”

Self-acceptance

“I can’t do everything and that’s fine. I am working to help provide for my family and I am proud of myself for that. I try to give my kids great experiences as often as I can. Yes, they’re disappointed right now, which is hard for me, but it’s okay.”

Mindful Parenting

“Now, I am making the most of the time I have by being present. I’m saying Krias Shema with Rivka, stroking her beautiful face and savoring the moment.”

Self-compassion

“Yes, it makes sense that juggling these responsibilities can feel stressful and overwhelming. I am doing my best. Simpler Shabbos food is fine too.”

“I got to know Sarah through her social media posts and I became an instant fan. Sarah is REAL because she lives by her beliefs. As a social worker and dedicated mom herself, she understands the WLB struggles on a professional and personal level. Playing these dual roles makes her uniquely suited to offer guidance on WLB and self-care. She is purposely vulnerable, sharing her own real struggles, without being ashamed to show her humanity. Sarah inspires me to be unabashedly genuine, which empowers me to share my own ‘there’s a message in the mess’ observations. Highly recommend her course!”

FAQs

Yes! I’m waiting for this with bated breath! When are you launching?

The course will likely launch in the summer of 2022. Join the waitlist today so you don’t miss it!

This sounds amazing. But AAAHH — I barely have time to put on my wig, how will I make time for this course?

I get it. You’re busy with the million and one things going on in your life. Keep in mind that stress is draining. It makes you slower and less productive. This course will help you access peace of mind, so you can feel calmer and get more done. Also, when you incorporate mindset shifts and coping techniques, you learn to practice self-care which reduces stress and enables you to prioritize and maximize your time better. Practically speaking, you’ll have the option to listen to the audio version on the go.

Fluffy content doesn’t work for me. Will this course effect real change in my life?

We’ll dive deep into the internal stressors and pressures, tackling working mom guilt at the core. I’ve seen tremendous change in my life and in my clients’ lives when we incorporated these techniques.  Additionally, weekly exercises will ensure that you put the learning into practice. You will also be paired with an accountability partner to keep each other on track.

Wait. As a mother, I should spend money on myself?

Yes! You’re a great mother. Spending money on this course is an act of self-care, and it will energize you to show up for your family and your career. You’ll learn empowering mindset shifts and coping tools to reduce the working-mom guilt.

Can this course help me if I’m dealing with mental illness?

If you’re dealing with a mental illness (depression, anxiety, OCD, etc.) it is important to seek out one-on-one support from a licensed mental health professional. This course can be used in tandem with therapy but not in place of it.


What if I want something more personalized? Can I get one-on-one coaching?

Yes. The course will offer a VIP track which will include two one-on-one coaching sessions to help you integrate the ideas into your unique schedule and lifestyle. Keep in mind that I’ll be available in Slack for support, check-ins, and questions, for both the standard and VIP tracks.
