Meet Emily

Well, hey there! I’m Emily Thompson, and before you roll your eyes thinking this is just another cliché introduction, let me assure you – it’s not. I’m a high school counselor by day. But by night? Well, I’m basically a superhero, but instead of a cape, I’ve got yoga pants and a stash of self-help books.

Divorced? Check.

Single mom? Double-check.

Daughter named Lily, who’s a 6-year-old bundle of energy? You bet.

I know what you’re thinking: “Emily, how do you juggle it all?” Well, magic wands would be great, but I’ve got resilience, resourcefulness, and some killer multitasking skills up my sleeve. Oh, and I listen pretty well too, probably because of all those therapy sessions in college. Thanks, psych degree!

Growing up as the baby in a family of three, in a town so small that everyone knew what you had for breakfast, was… an experience. The divorce of my parents when I was 10? Another experience. But hey, it’s made me the empathetic, community-loving, self-improving junkie I am today.

When I’m not donning my counselor cape or playing hide-and-seek with Lily, you can find me bent in a yoga pose (sometimes involuntarily), volunteering at the community center, or leading the charge in my local single parents’ support group. Because, let’s face it, it takes a village. And if you’re a single parent too, hit me up. We can swap horror stories or just chat about the latest blog on single parenting (yes, I’m that tech-savvy!).

So, if you’re looking for someone who’s seen the storm and danced in the rain, that’s me – Emily. Empathetic ear, resourceful problem-solver, and a constant work in progress.

Cheers to life’s rollercoasters and the lessons they teach us!
