I felt like she was really hearing me, both the reality of my situation and the cry of my heart.  Then, she took all that I said and was able to help me turn it into practical steps I could take to change my life.   I now joke "be careful what you wish for!" because my life is so full.  Good full.  My kids deserve a happy mother.  They've got one now and as a result, the whole family is thriving too!

Let me guess…

You’re a mom who works. Whether you’re working from your laptop during nap time, high-powering it in a corporate job, or starting a business, you’re juggling so much! Grocery lists, To Do’s for work and home, permission slips for your kiddo’s school, and remembering to make dentists appointments. The invisible load of motherhood is so heavy and you lay in bed at night wondering why no one warned you about how hard it would be.

You need a bird’s eye view of the big picture so that you can simplify your home life, be more present with your kids, and feel more organized in your days. You want to live by your values, but you’re drowning in the daily To Do’s, and no matter how hard you try to get organized, you spend more time procrasti-planning than actually doing.

I understand what it’s like to feel like you’re half-assing everything: when you want to be more connected to your kids, but your work has it’s own demands, the house is always a mess, and you would give anything to remember what it’s like to be a woman with her own dreams and desires.

My life used to be so much more chaotic. At one point I was running two new business babies, each with their own podcast and social media accounts, teaching full-loads for two online universities, freelance writing for a magazine, and had a new baby and two young daughters. There was so much on my plate I couldn’t even see straight, I didn’t know how to say no, and I knew this wasn’t the life that I wanted, but I felt so incredibly stuck.

Now I work no more than 20 hours a week (unless I feel inspired to do more) doing my dream job, I spend quality time with my kids every single day, and I feel relaxed and peaceful at home. I know what I’m called to do as a mom and as a woman, and I am free from uncertainty and fear, overwhelming days, and a chaotic home. I want the same for you, my friend.

I’m a Simplicity Parenting Family Life Coach, and I help overwhelmed moms who work find the light at the end of the tunnel. We work together to simplify and connect all of the loose ends in your busy days and tame the chaos in your home. I’ll help you take practical steps to create a life that is peaceful and empowers you to be a connected mom while also discovering work you love. We’ll spend time identifying your values, your goals, and creating a vision for your future that lights you up and helps you move forward with more hope and excitement and less anger and frustration.

My approach is 100% judgment-free, and I take the time to get to know you so personally, you’ll feel loved and known for who you are rather than who people *think* you should be. Don’t try to figure this out alone and end each day feeling overwhelmed and guilty!

Mom life can be so much easier, so let’s work together to create your streamlined, happier life.

Let me show you how.

Hey, I’m Kate Saffle!

motherhood coach, Simplicity parenting family life coach, and advocate for mamas to Lessen the Overwhelm at home and work, simplify motherhood, and Proactively create a happier future.

I’m a mom just like you, and I’m beyond confident that it’s possible to find peace in motherhood while working. I believe that all kids deserve a happy mama and all moms deserve a happy life (**spoiler alert** that includes you!)


Here’s how I can help:

  • Help you identify your values and create an organized daily, weekly, and life plan to reflect what matters most to you and your family.

  • Simplify your home, parenting approach, and work life

  • Clarify your ideal vision of working motherhood and make it a reality through crushing mental blocks, turning around negative self-talk, and creating new and lasting habits.

  • Advocate for your dreams and give you the tools to transform them into an action plan.

  • Support you through life transitions, the wear and tear of caring for little ones, and in making thoughtful and purposeful decisions, both as a mother and a woman.

  • Set goals and create action steps to achieve them quickly.

  • And so much more!


Working with Kate has quite literally changed my life. I know this line is thrown around often but I mean it wholeheartedly. I came to Kate with low self confidence and no self belief. I wanted to try something different as my children will all be at school soon but I could not get my head and heart to align. I was filled with fear. Kate changed all of this the very first time we spoke. She was gentle and kind, asking questions and listening without judgement to my ramblings. With every interaction we had, I felt a strong sense of advocacy for me and my abilities. I feel emotional and grateful for the support Kate provided me. It’s not like I don’t have supportive people in my life, I do. I have a wonderful husband, children, parents and life-long friends. But Kate’s fresh eyes and heart could see me differently. But by bit Kate increased my confidence and self esteem. Through our coaching my fear decreased. The exercises Kate provided revealed my true passions and have now set me on a path to begin my own business. Without Kate, this little dream I’d pushed down inside would have been unlikely to ever happen. Ever. It is because of Kate that I am changing my story. I now have a plan. I am excited and driven to work on my business to make myself proud, and my family too.

More glowing coaching testimonials

When I first started working with Kate I was an overwhelmed, depressed mother who had forgotten who she was. I felt like I was failing at everything and like I would never be the mom and wife I needed to be. I came to Kate because I thought I needed help figuring out how to be a better mom, but what I ended up realizing is I needed help finding myself again. Kate helped me rediscover my passions and she's helped me figure out my own values and desires for myself and my family. It's been less than a year since I've started working with Kate but in that time I have gone from being that overwhelmed, depressed mother to being a woman who knows who she is! I still have bad days, but they are less often and I am able to handle them much better because of the tools Kate has given me. I am now able to see myself as someone with talents and abilities, and thanks to Kate's encouragement and influence I have written a novel which will be publish next year. Because of my time with Kate I am a stronger mother and wife and am able to be more for my family because I know who I am and what I am capable of. Kate offers so much to her clients and is the kindest most understanding person I've had the pleasure of knowing. It doesn't matter what you are going through, she doesn't judge you or make you feel like a failure. She lifts you up and even better teaches you how to lift yourself up! I will be forever grateful for the role she's played in my life.

One conversation.  That's all it took.  I met Kate through Instagram when I was exploring the idea of full-time travel as a single mom of triplets.  While that idea didn't end up being a good fit for our family, I was really feeling lost about where we WERE headed.  I wasn't making enough money to feel comfortable, was working all the time, and felt overwhelmed with my life.  Kate offered to have a phone conversation with me, which ultimately turned my life upside-down.  At the time, I really thought I was doing what was best for my kids, even though life wasn't working for ME.  Kate very sweetly, but firmly said "Your kids deserve a happy mother."  That one line woke me up.  I agreed and immediately started making plans.  In five short months, I've moved from a city that wore me out, to a city I absolutely adore.  I've gone from having no money in the bank and barely making ends meet, to having savings, enough money to live on and plenty left over to realize my dreams of traveling with my family.  I've gone from having almost no adult interaction to having all the friends I need.  Having that one conversation with Kate made such a difference because she was empathetic to my situation.  I felt like she was really hearing me, both the reality of my situation and the cry of my heart.  Then, she took all that I said and was able to help me turn it into practical steps I could take to change my life.   I now joke "be careful what you wish for!" because my life is so full.  Good full.  My kids deserve a happy mother.  They've got one now and as a result, the whole family is thriving too!  Thank you, Kate!

Kate is amazing. She really helped me narrow down my business goals and gave me the encouragement I needed. I’m a full time mom and was in a place where I wasn’t sure where to start. Kate helped with all of that! Our coaching calls left me feeling so encouraged and motivated. Now I’m pursuing my goals with more confidence and a clear vision. Thank you Kate!!!
