I’m grateful to be able to accompany incredible people on journeys about self discovery and creating more contentment in their lives”, says Mia.

Mommy Matters gave me a community during a time I felt very isolated. The women I met here were going through, or had gone through, many of the same challenges I was currently facing. I felt very supported. It’s no surprise that mothers continue to attend Mommy Matters long after the diaper stage has passed!

I began working with Mia when I realized that my father was entering the last stages of Alzheimer's disease. I had already tragically lost my younger brother and my mother at times in my life when I was not able to adequately process those losses. The thought of preparing for my father's death was overwhelming. Mia suggested EMDR Therapy. EMDR helped me deal with my past traumatic memories so I was fully prepared when my father passed. Mia is very professional, competent, wonderfully warm, and kind. She helped me gain my happiness back! I no longer suffer the pain and trauma of those losses when I remember my loved ones.

Mia Wilson is amazing! She is extremely helpful, hospitable, and knowledgeable. She is an amazing listener and never judgmental. One of my favorite attributes about her is you may be taking about a topic with her earlier in the day and hours later she will send several articles pertaining to what you were chatting about. You couldn't ask for a more caring professional. She is easy to talk to, and makes you feel immediately comfortable. Mia has an incredible ease to her.

Mia was exactly the person we needed in our 8-year-old son's life. She is caring and he relates to her easily. Her practices are based a lot on mindfulness and having an awareness of oneself. She gives us strategies that are easy to implement and effective for our son and the whole family.

Our son LOVES Mia, she has helped him understand the scientific background of how his brain works, what he can do to change how his brain works through simple and continued exercises, and how he can let his best shine through! Mia also gave our family a framework of strategies to help us as parents have less stress, but at the same time letting us know what we could improve on to support our son.
