Steady MOMing since 2012!


The hand that rocks the cradle rules the nation. I rule my nation with jazz, hip hop and primordial sounds. My name is Thembi (pronounced Tembe), similar to Thomas when you don’t pronounce the “h”. It has taken me a long time to love and appreciate this name so I will not shorten it or make it ordinary by choosing a nickname. You must use your whole tongue when pronouncing my name. Warsan Shire gets it right: 

And you know who Warsan Shire is right? Refer to Beyoncé’s Lemonade or ask google universityShe is bright young poet who hasn’t let this world beat the artist out of her yet. I wrote poetry once.

I’m the ma of King and having him has made me bolder, wiser and more intentional with my decisions because little eyes are always watching. I married a great man who is astrologically my square. We came together to become better this life time.

I help mothers learn to share their calm not their crazy. What qualifies me to offer mental health advice? I am a licensed counselor with over ten years of experience;  holding a B.A. in Sociology and a Masters in Counseling Education. Follow the blog to join me in exploring mental hygiene and whole body wellness. I have been known to flip a table or two but thank God I found yoga! Pausing before I react and taking long deep breaths have saved many lives. I’ve learned to transform my fire. Instead of burning things down, I use my heat to purify. Every day that I stay off the news is a win. Find the win and praise it!

If you are in the DMV area, I offer workshops teaching mindfulness and movement as a classroom management technique. If you would like to learn more, contact me here. I love you and want the best for you and that is why I am a healthy living advocate and a yoga instructor. I blog about it here.



I love helping mothers take better care of themselves with my mindful MOMing techniques. Follow me on twitter for more tips. Check out one of my yoga classes and reconnect to the light within. Namaste.
