Hello moms out there! My name is Sari Shaicovitch and I am very honoured to be joining clubmom as it’s newest blogger. I am excited to join this community of women and share my expertise with all of you. Allow me to introduce myself.
I have been married for nearly 14 years (yes, to the same guy!) and I am a very busy mom to three very active girls.
In my real life I am a professional social worker. I spent many years in the helping profession by working with special needs children and case managing for them. So even before I had my own kids, I had the responsibility of taking care of other people’s children. So I know kids. I know what works with kids. And I get, unfortunately having seen some very difficult things in my line of work, the effects that different styles of parenting can have on kids.
Ironically, on a more personal level, my husband and I tried for a very long time to conceive our own children. Fertility treatments were part of our routine for many years. We went through the ups and downs, periods of limbo, depression and fear that we would never become parents. But we persevered, and have never looked back.
Since resigning from my ‘paying job’ several years ago, I have built up a private counseling practice. I work with clients who experience a myriad of struggles; some relating to fertility, but mostly those struggling with the day-to-day pressures of our society; those who are trying just to keep their head above water, pay their bills, and be good partners and nurturing parents.
Having my own business has allowed me the flexibility of doing what I love to do by counseling others, but also to be home more for my children.
I have learned a lot over the course of my adult life, both from professional as well as personal perspective. And I feel like I have a lot to give back.
Allow me to share that expertise with you. If you need to discuss something that is tugging at your heartstrings and you need suggestions on how to cope, let me know. Chances are I have seen it or lived through it before.
For any questions or comments please look through my website at www.sarishaicovitch.com and email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will respond to you confidentially in this blog.
I look forward to hearing from you.
