Do You Wish To Get Rid Of "Mommy Guilt"?

I Help Busy Moms Who Want to Meaningfully Connect and Develop Close Bonds with Their Daughters

About Dr. Michelle Deering

My name is Dr. Michelle Deering. I am a mother-daughter relationship personal trainer, writer, and speaker who encourages, empowers, and equips women to connect intentionally so they can improve relationally.

My work is dedicated to you.

I know how important it is to have a close confidant that both listens and speaks; that sister or mom whose open ear and well-timed words strengthen and encourage you to know your worth and to keep pressing forward.

Though we may not have met in person yet, I hope to be a life-giving part of your journey.
