Life has been going in a million directions and dragging you along with it. You're tired of the constant back and forth from place-to-place, thing-to-thing. Sometimes, you're not sure if you're coming or going, and you're exhausted, emotionally drained and running on autopilot.
You're in desperate need of a getaway!
Just you. Alone. Away for a weekend to relax and rejuvenate.
You want to sleep as late as you damn well want to, alone and hogging all the covers without someone else complaining. You long for an uninterrupted conversation with another adult that doesn't center around your children or work. You want to enjoy a hot shower and a quiet cup of coffee without the sound of cartoons in the background and syrup in places you didn't know it could be.
Being a Mom is fucking hard.
You love motherhood. You also would love the opportunity to miss your family once in awhile. Right now, all you miss are adult interactions that aren't centered around kid school and activity schedules.
Being a Therapist is fucking hard.
Oh, yeah. Don't forget that. You're feeling a bit burned out as a Therapist, too. Always there for your clients when they need you. You love your work, but it's been non-stop for quite awhile and you need a moment to breathe.
Being a Mom and Therapist is fucking bonkers.
I see you and I've got just the thing for you: A Therapist Mom Retreat.
A what? A Retreat!
Imagine a weekend JUST for women who are balancing the demands of being a mom and a therapist. Both jobs are difficult in their own right, but being both is getting more and more like walking a tightrope with each passing day.
What do we do on this retreat? In a nutshell, we'll do a little bit of business talk (so it counts as a business expense) and the rest of the time will have self-care offerings for you to participate in. The best part is that you'll be surrounded by other women who decided it's time to practice what they're preaching to their clients about self-care.
Hi! I'm MacKenzie, your Hostess With The Mostest. I'm an LCSW, a Mom and Therapist myself. I wanted to create a community for Moms who are Therapists to come together where they can find friendship, support, encouragement and validation. The work we do as working moms is ridiculously difficult. I often feel like I don't get much of a break from helping people manage themselves. I do it all day in my practice and then go home to my "second job" to do it some more. Mama's tired! What better way to get away than to spend a relaxing, rejuvenating weekend with other women who get it on a level no one else can. So I created a second business, Elevated Retreats. It pairs my love for travel and being away from my family. And it's even more wonderful, because I actually start to miss them.
When you retreat with me, you'll enjoy group discussions about family life, work and self-care. You'll also be treated to the utmost relaxing and rejuvenating of activities. You'll laugh. You might cry - happy tears of course.
You'll have the chance to tailor your weekend to meet your individual goals. This includes (activities will vary depending on availability) spa treatments, yoga or other physical movement, and of course enjoying the sites, entertainment, cuisine and libations of the area. You'll have plenty of time to yourself as well, if that is what you need. The purpose of my retreats is for you to decide the amount of solitude and camaraderie that your soul yearns for. Bonus is you'll be surrounded by other women who are looking for a similar experience. What a wonderful opportunity for a soul-rejuvenating weekend!
A Retreat is just what you need.
We need each other more than ever. We need community. We need to know that others get the struggles we are having. When we're in sessions all day, this validation doesn't come easily.
Grab a fellow therapist (or not) and get ready to book your retreat today! Space will be limited so don't hesitate.
