I’m on Moms Zone!

Hello All You Moms Out There!

My name is Joy Rigberg and I am so excited to announce my upcoming monthly Moms Zone blog!

Each month, beginning in September, (well actually beginning right now with this blog : ) I’ll be sharing some educational secrets, stories, successes, tips and a whole lot more with all of you wonderful Moms Zone moms!

My intention with this blog is to make it as interactive as possible, meaning, you tell me what your current concerns are or what you’re struggling with, and that topic will be my focus for the month.

If at first you find that you’re a little shy, or possibly even too overwhelmed to know where to begin, don’t worry, because I have worked with and helped many children who struggle both at home and at school with things like:

  • Focus
  • Motivation
  • Stress
  • ADD/ADHD
  • Confidence/Self-esteem
  • Anger
  • Procrastination
  • Social Skills
  • Communication

…and more, so I have plenty of topics from which to begin! : )

So now a little about me: I began Conscious Joy Coaching a little more than a year ago with the intention of helping both parents and children to live a more consciously joyful life and to Reconnect with and Remember Their Innate Potential.

After obtaining my second Master’s Degree, this one in Counseling, I knew it was time to leave the classroom setting, which I had been in for more than 13 years, and work with children in a more conscious and authentic way. With this in mind, the universe led me to a woman who has become both my mentor, teacher and spiritual mother, and her name is Joyce Mills.

I could write blogs and blogs about Joyce’s experiences and accomplishments alone, but to save time I’ll give you just a little teaser; if you want to read more about this fabulous Fearless Woman, just click on the links.

Joyce Mills is the founder of the StoryPlay® Center in Scottsdale, AZ, she’s a nationally and internationally recognized storyteller, a keynote presenter, a licensed and certified Marriage and Family Therapist, a Registered Play Therapy Supervisor, and most recently, she’s been featured in Mary Ann Halpin’s new book; Fearless Women, Fearless Wisdom.

Joyce developed a strength based method of therapy and coaching called  StoryPlay® which has become the foundation of my Educational and Parent Coaching practice.

What I love most about this creative, multicultural, experiential, multisensory and transformational coaching process, is that it brings together three of my most favorite things: Play, metaphor and the elements of story, and creativity…and then draws on the natural inner resources, skills, and strengths of each individual, to effect positive change, problem solving and natural healing.

As I am a diverse, creative, multicultural kind of girl myself, I also implement into my coaching a dynamic variety of mindfulness and breath practices, body movement and energy work, an array and lifetime of teaching and travel stories and experiences, as well as consistent and constant new learnings. I am an open minded, humble student of life; I love to learn, I love to give, and I love the element of surprise!

Speaking of surprise, I’d like to leave a little element of mystery and surprise  for my next blog, so I’ve decided to end with an amazing quote by Michelangelo that sums up my beliefs about coaching…

“I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.”

Until next time!
With love and blessings,
Joy

  1. As a young Mom I didn’t hesitate to read about parenting methods and join other Moms in small groups to discuss our every day problems. At times those problems seemed insurmountable and talking to a professional would have made a huge difference in my approach to solving them. Interestingly enough, I discovered that many of the family issues I faced were enhanced by what I did and said. Private couching could really have been helpful and would have made our (my life) lives so much more enjoyable. It’s great that you’re providing that service to so many young moms.

    • Thank you very much…and please let me know if you have a specific concern or struggle that you’d like me to address.
      Blesings,
      Joy

    • Thank you Paulette! Please let me know if I can address any of your own personal mom concerns or struggles in a future post.
      Blessings,
      Joy

  2. What a great resource this is for moms everywhere. I only wish we had had someone like you when we were raising our kids.

  3. Being a mom is the toughest job we women will ever have. Any help is greatly appreciated. It’s wonderful to have an outlet like this to share joys and problems without guilt or shame.

    Thanks for finding a way to share your talent and experiences with others.

    • Thank you Betty for your comment! And you got it, honest, nonjudgemental expression is exactly what I aim for in this blog! Please keep the comments coming, as the more I hear from you, the better I can be of service! For all new coaching events, workshops, specials, etc. visit my website at http://www.consciousjoycoaching.com and join my mailing list. I’ll be in touch very soon with my new blog. Until then, have a wonderful week!
      Blessings,
      Joy

  4. I.m sure that with 13 years of experience teaching, counciling families, and students, that you must have a treasure chest of secrets to share with your clients and MOMs, but where are the DADs? Keep writing these great BLOGS.
