Meet the Founder
As a Licensed Professional Counselor, it became alarmingly clear that women do not get enough self-care. The majority of women are dealing with things like anxiety, depression, guilt, past trauma, low self esteem, feelings of overwhelm and stress, excessive fear and worry, poor body image, and limiting self beliefs... just to name a few. The worst part, women think it is completely "normal" to feel this way.
Personally, I thought it was"normal" to feel this way... until I hit a breaking point. For me, this was living life on autopilot, just showing up, clocking in and out, full of negative emotions; sadness, anger, shame, guilt, overwhelm, frustration, etc. I thought this was it, all I had to offer, until I realized how my negative emotions were impacting my husband and daughter. That was my breaking point. I was not going to raise a daughter to think that it's okay to simply survive life instead of thrive in life!
My name is Becky Lauridsen and I owe me! I am a wife, mother, career woman, and the proud Founder and Lead Supporter of IOME. I see a therapist on a regular basis. I take naps, shower (almost daily), wash my face every night, wear makeup, go to church, cuss a little, take bubble baths, go on long walks, and binge watch Netflix when I need to “check out”. I even have sex with my husband regularly (and I like it)!
You do not have to simply survive life! You can have your cake and eat it too! You can be the best mother and career women, the best wife and mother, the best friend and wife, the best career women and friend! You deserve the most, your family deserves the most.
IOME has changed my life and I’m so thankful Becky puts her heart and soul into it. Along with Becky’s help, I have grown as a person and learned so much about myself.
