Finding Confidence in Motherhood
For most, motherhood feels like assuming a new identity. Suddenly, there is another peson (or people) who depend on you for everything, and the rest of your life never skipped a beat. In this webinar, JeeYoung will share practical tips and tricks to find your stride in this new version of your life!
JeeYoung W. is a project manager and consultant in the HR industry. She shares the happy chaos that is raising three boys in a multicultural home at SimplyEvery.com. Simply Every is a lifestyle blog that covers topics from raising children in the digital age, motherhood, mom style, family travel and home. She is a firm believer that hot coffee, sleep, and self-care are the medicine for her soul. On the daily, you can catch her living her (basic) mom life, complete with top knot, leggings as pants, and a Starbucks drink in hand. According to her (oldest) son, she is 35, 7 ft tall, enjoys picking flowers and watching Fixer Upper, and “likes to do stuff for us.”
Motherhood & Mental Health
There’s a saying in counseling, “What you don’t transform you transmit.” Maternal mental health is such an important topic. Join Andrea as she talks about PPA, PPD, warning signs to look out for, and strategies to help break down the stigma around this topic that touches so many of us.
My most sacred goal as a counselor and coach is to help my clients transform their pain into places of great wisdom and peace. I believe that each of us is the expert of our own story and experiences and it is my privilege to listen to and honor each clients story as they move towards healing. My experience I received my education from Arizona State University, earning a Bachelors Degree in Child and Family Development and spent a year involved in Autism Research. I then received my Masters Degree in Counseling. Early in my career, I served as a counselor in an intensive outpatient facility, working exclusively with adolescents dealing with substance dependency and addictions, trauma, anxiety, depression, and self injury. I then opened Bloom Healing, which provides individual and group counseling specializing in addiction, anxiety, depression, sexual abuse, trauma, and childhood behavior. I am passionate about empowering women and running women’s groups are the absolute favorite part of my job. Being a mother is the best and hardest calling of my life. I have the privilege of raising three delightful, spirited, loving, chaotic children- Ethan, Tyler and Charlotte.
Motherhood & Staying Fit
Discover how to fight childhood obesity and change what research is showing about how we may outlive our kids! Learn ways to eat healthier as a family without wasting food. Learn how to prioritize time for exercise and fit it into your busy routine.
I’ve always been passionate about health and fitness. In 2011 I left my job as a second grade teacher to become a stay at home mom. I soon found myself filling my free time with exercise, creating healthy recipes for my family, and sharing them both on a healthy living blog. Through blogging I discovered that I wasn’t just passionate about MY health and wellness but about helping others on their healthy living journeys. So I became a group fitness coach, and personal trainer. I currently coach at KaiaFIT in Roseville and also work with women virtually through online training and nutritional coaching. When I’m not coaching or training, I love spending time with my husband and two sons Ayden 8 and Jax 3. I love to drink wine, eat good food, laugh with friends and enjoy living a healthy, but sustainable lifestyle. Education and Qualifications include, BA Chico State in Liberal Studies, AFFA Group Fitness Certified, NASM Personal Trainer Certified, NASM Fitness Nutrition certified.
ONCE POST-NATAL, ALWAYS POST-NATAL
Raise your hand if your body has never been quite the same since giving birth. Your body did an amazing thing (maybe even more than once!), and it’s understandable that it wouldn’t be the same, but it doesn’t have to be that way forever! Amy talks about common post-natal health issues and what you can do at home and what might need more attention from a doctor.
Amy Zipp, MS OT/L has been licensed as a clinician since 2005 & began focusing on women’s health in 2008. She has a broad background including pediatrics, neurological conditions & sport, where she has also been a certified coach through USA Triathlon. Amy works with patients to not just focus on pelvic health, but on overall movement goals & long term fitness. She is certified in both the Selective Functional Movement Assessment, the Functional Movement Screen & is a Comprehensive Pilates Instructor through BASI. All patients receive 1-on-1 treatment with a balanced approach to address their concerns. Amy’s focus is on the relationship between pelvic floor fitness and how that aspect of deep core stability translates to improved movement patterns for the rest of the body. She is passionate about teaching to bridge the gap between rehabilitate & other disciplines. She has presented workshops to various fitness programs for personal trainers & group fitness instructors; as well as volunteer teaching in the UC Davis PA/NP program.
