The Nation’s #1 Mother Daughter Relationship Personal Trainer

who helps busy moms

bond meaningfully with their daughter.

Hi There!

My name is Dr. Michelle Deering. I am a Mother Daughter Relationship Personal Trainer, writer, and speaker who encourages, empowers, and equips women — moms, in particular — to connect intentionally so they can improve relationally.

YOU are the reason I’m here.

Mother-daughter relationships are complex in ways that can end up in a Crazy Connection Cycle™. I developed The Life Mirror Remedy®, which helps break the  Crazy Connection Cycle™ so that you can have less head butting and more bonding in your relationship. 

If you are looking for a close confidant that both listens and speaks; that “sister” or “mom” whose open ear and well-timed words will strengthen and encourage you to know your worth, keep pressing forward, and break the Crazy Connection Cycle™, then CONTACT ME to sign up & get more information. Just mention “CCC” in the beginning of your email.

Though we may not have met in person yet, I look forward to being a life-giving part of your motherhood journey.

Blogging is a way for me to pause, consider, and share with my readers thoughts I have about aspects of being a daughter, woman, mom, and mother of daughters. I want moms & daughters to know that they are heard, understood, and supported in their mother-daughter relationship journey. Writing a blog is my way of giving moms time-tested, research-based, psych-informed tools and strategies that will help transform their relationship with their daughter.
