in their day-to-day life.

If you want to move from feeling alone and without "mom support" to feeling confident and full of motherhood joy, even on those days you long for a loving mom right beside you, then the Moms Without A Mom coaching program is right for you.

There are so many moms without a mom who want to feel supported by someone who understands them, have someone they can trust to get their questions answered without feeling embarrassed, and learn how to enjoy being the amazing mom they want to be even though they don't have a mother in their day-to-day life to learn from.


The biggest challenge is giving yourself permission to seek out and accept the support, guidance, and assistance that will make your life as a mom not only easier but more fulfilling and enjoyable.


The great news is that the Moms Without A Mom Coaching program is going to simplify the entire process of how you:

  • heal through the grief of not having a mom
  • proactively build a strong mom community that you can rely on to get support and guidance when you need it
  • empower you to feel good about who you are as a mom even though you don't have a loving mom in your day-to-day life to learn from.

The Moms Without A Mom Coaching Program is for every Motherless Mom who no longer wants to feel insecure about her parenting, or feel like she is just getting by the best she can on her own and is ready to build confidence and resilience as she learns to thrive as a mom without a mom.


BEING A MOM WITHOUT A MOM IS HARD AND CAN DRAIN YOUR MOTHERHOOD JOY.

  • You are a first-time mom and your child has her first fever and you don't know if you should call the doctor or not and wish you had a supportive mom to reach out to for help.

  • You don't know which one of you is more anxious as your son gets on the bus for his first day of kindergarten and your thoughts wander to a conversation you would have liked to have had with your mother but couldn't.

  • You hate the jealous thoughts you have when your friend’s mother takes her kids so she can have a date night with her spouse.

  • Your teen is going on their first date and you realize what your mother was feeling when you went on your first date and regret not being able to share the experience with her.

  • It's grandparents' day at school and your heart sinks because your child doesn't have your mom to be with them.

  • On the days when you just want to run away, you wish you could cry to your mom and be comforted. Sometimes you think "I just miss my mom".

If so, you are in the right place! Moms without a Mom is the only individual coaching program designed to guide moms separated from their mother by death, estrangement, emotional distance or physical distance, from feeling alone and without "mom support", to a place of resilience and self-confidence, even on those days they long for a loving mom right beside them.

Welcome to the

Thriving as a

Mom Without A Mom Framework.

Thriving as a Mom Without A Mom Framework

You will build your mom community, create your own mother support, experience grief healing, and become grounded in mama joy.

Grief Healing for Moms Without A Mom Graphic of heart with crossed bandaids

The first step includes exploring the transformative power of grief healing. Grief shows up in many forms. It may be related to the death of your mom, the loss of a relationship you want to have but know you can't due to estrangement, grief related to the lack of a maternal grandmother for your child, grief related to the loss of a hoped-for relationship with a loving and supportive mom.

Mom Community for Moms Without A Mom Graphic of Heart with Hands

The second step involves building a mom community. Momless moms don't have the benefit of a "go-to" person that one's mother often fills. Moms without a mom need to intentionally build their community to create the support and guidance they need.

Mom Identity for Moms Without A Mom Graphic of Mom and Baby silhouette inside heart

The third step involves the development of our mom identity. When our first child is born, we become a mom. Knowing who we are as a first-time mom doesn't always come naturally, especially when one has had a difficult relationship with their own mother.

Are you ready to see the coaching package options?

We will begin with an in-depth review of your specific concerns and goals so that your program and s tailored to meet your individualized needs, unlike typical group programs that follow a predetermined general format.

Questions and the need for support can occur anytime in our lives. Not just during a scheduled coaching session. That is why the Moms Without A Mom Coaching packages include on-demand coaching using the free Voxer app so that you can get assistance when you most need it.

Like you, I am a motherless mom and understand the unique challenges that we as moms without a mom face as we parent our children. You will be coached by someone who has been where you are.

My education, training, and more than two decades of experience as a clinical psychologist have taught me to accurately and efficiently recognize patterns and understand underlying issues so we can get to the heart of the matter quickly and create strategies that work.

Each coaching package is individually tailored to meet your specific needs and particular goals. Simply choose between the one-month package or the three-month package. If you are unsure which option best suits your needs, schedule your complimentary call and Melissa will help you choose the best package.

Momless mom Melissa and son embracing

I have been a momless mom for over 12 years and know what it is like to parent without the support and guidance of a loving mom in my day-to-day life.

The fall has begun, and I love being a mom, entrepreneur and psychologist. My son, frequently hangs out with a lovely group of friends, he is enjoying the start of school, and can't wait for the school musical practices to begin. My psychological practice is thriving, and I am passionate about my coaching program for moms without a mom. 

But it wasn't always like this. Unfortunately, the first few years of my son's life were not only among the most challenging times of my life but also a time when I felt utterly alone and completely lost in how to be a mom. My mom and both sisters had died before he was born, and I had lived in our town for less than a year.

My son was born with neurological conditions that took a year to diagnose and required years of intensive therapies for him to engage in basic tasks, including walking, talking, and interacting with others in meaningful ways. I was filled with fear and self-blame (completely irrational) and felt utterly overwhelmed. Being a shy introvert made reaching out for help challenging. I felt like something was wrong with me because it felt like I was failing as a mom. 

And then I realized that I felt different because I was different. There are unique challenges that all moms without a mom experience that impacts their mothering.

I knew I needed to change how I was living my life. I couldn't do it alone.

So here is what I did:

  • I replaced my negative self-talk with compassion and encouragement.
  • I educated myself about the challenges my son and I were facing and what we needed to do.
  • I sought emotional support from people who would listen rather than try and cheer me up or give advice.
  • I asked for assistance from people who could lighten the load. 

I want all moms to thrive and recognize their inner strength, especially those moms like me who don't have a loving, supportive mom in their day-to-day lives. We are stronger when we have a community that understands us!

“Thank you for guiding me through a difficult time. Your support has been invaluable! Our time together helped me feel better about myself and more at peace in general.”

- Sarah (Sacramento , CA)

"I wanted to thank you for helping me develop the coping skills and tools to make life easier. The decision to have my son wouldn’t have happened if I constantly let my anxiety get to me. Thanks again - coming to see you was the best thing I’ve done for myself.”

- Stephanie (Reading, PA)

“Thank you so much! Your patience and kindness always help.”

- Erica (Baltimore, MD)

Don't wait to be your best self

Your children deserve to have a happy, fully present mom - right now.  And you are worthy of having a mothering experience that you love! Don't wait to take this step until your kids are grown.

  • The longer you wait, hoping things will get better on their own, the older your children get and they will have missed the fully available mom they could have had. Right now, they might be getting a mom who is only half present emotionally. Make sure your kids grow up with you being there fully for them. Are you ready to be the best version of yourself for your kids?
  • Every single day you wait is another day that your memories of your kids will include those uncomfortable feelings of longing and sadness or perhaps even anger or fear related to the absence of your mother.
  • It’s time to stop letting another holiday, family gathering, grandparent's day, a typical day at the park, or routine activities go by without enjoying them.
  • The precious motherhood moments are slipping by when you are distracted by the stresses of being a mom without a mom. You only experience these moments for a short time while your children are young. We don’t have a time machine - you can't get these years back, but you will learn how to overcome these feelings.
  • Don't wait to take action until the day you find yourself in the emergency room from stress without anyone to take care of your children. It’s time you made yourself a priority FOR your children and their relationship with you.

I know you’re an amazing mom but if you are dealing with feelings of insecurity, isolation, and overwhelm, it is draining your motherhood joy and affecting your ability to be the best mom you can be.

Are you ready to finally release the feelings you’ve been carrying with the help of a supportive community of other moms who completely get you?

Will this program help me even if I know my mom won't ever be in my life again?

Absolutely. Although nothing can replace the positive experience of having a loving mom in your day-to-day life, you will develop strategies to minimize the difficult feelings and experiences that get in the way of being the best mom you can be.

How is the Moms Without A Mom Coaching package different from therapy?

The Moms Without A Mom coaching package focuses on the specific aspects of being a mom without a mom. Although we may address early life experiences as they relate to your experience of being mothered, we will not be delving into long-standing patterns of personality. The coaching program does not treat mental health disorders.

What happens if I have questions in between our scheduled coaching sessions?

We will be using the Voxer app to communicate via text, audio, or short video messages in between sessions. This way you will have the opportunity to have questions answered quickly and you can get support when you need it.
