My courses and coaching are for you if...

  1. You're single and you're dating life is stressing you out

  2. You're in a partnership that's having challenges 

  3. You've been broken up or divorced for some time and think you might be ready to fall in love again (but do it in a healthy way this time)

  4. You're becoming aware of your relationship patterns and want to break free of them 

  5. You seem to have it all but the one thing missing is someone to share it with

  6. No matter how much your partner reassures you they loves you, you never feel like you're loved enough

  7. You feel like you're spinning your wheels inside your love life and wonder, “Is there something wrong with me?”

  8. You feel confident and empowered in most areas of your life except love and relationship

  9. You have become jaded and untrusting about love and relationships and deep down you want to change that

  10. You feel like you do EVERYTHING right in the beginning but it always ends the same way - they disappear, they want to keep it casual or they meet someone else

  11. You're tired of attracting and falling for inappropriate people

  12. You want to heal and find yourself

My courses and coaching are NOT for you if...

  1. You're NON COMMITTAL and UNWILLING to take action to achieve the outcome you desire

  2. You're CLOSED OFF to new ideas that could help you get the things you want

  3. You BLAME life on external factors (people, places and circumstances) and operate primarily from a "victim consciousness" believing everything happens to you rather than for you

  4. You have painful UNPROCESSED TRAUMA from a recent event or childhood that would be best addressed with a mental health or medical professional

  5. You have a NEGATIVE MINDSET about growth, love and relationships and are just fine with that

  6. You LACK AN ABILITY TO GET HONEST and look at your own contribution to your struggle and/or harmful things you've done

  7. You DON’T BELIEVE the love and life you want is possible for you

  8. You want a place to VENT and let out all your pain and anger

When it comes to emotional growth, finding love and creating fulfilling relationships there is a lot of "help" out there. There are innumerable books, articles, blogs, workshops and programs that can show you step by step how to date and think like a man, how to be a mysterious and elusive to draw in a man or how to act reserved and lady like so that you don’t scare him away or rock the boat.

 

Unfortunately when it comes to dating and relationships women can be tempted to take the bait and the risk with this kind of strategy is that you are encourage to focus on the external rather than address the underlying emotional issues, lack of training in conscious relationships and disconnection with the Self that's keeping you with your challenges or in your patterns.

 

In the end, if you're searching for an intimate partner or longing for a deeper soul connection in your relationship, you become someone you're not and hope that being this version of yourself will help get what you want. When it doesn’t happen this can lead to disappointment, frustration, regret, low self-esteem and wondering if there is something wrong with you. 

What sets my courses and coaching apart is that I don't use any rules, gimmicks or tricks to help you find a relationship or to improve one. What I do is I help you lovingly face the underlying causes and conditions for your current situation.  I help you grow out of emotionally immature coping strategies developed in your formative years. I train you on how to use relationships to love yourself in the deepest ways. I help you come home to yourself.

 

Think of Women Can Heal as an alternative to therapy and I'm your emotional coach. I take you below the surface and I help you uncover and address the core issues in my three step process.

My structure for transformation and evolution is called Embodied Womanhood.

Embodied Womanhood is a trauma informed body of work of digital guidebooks, meditations, masterclasses, online courses, group and private programs helping women who struggle emotionally in their love lives

(1) develop facility with her emotions

(2) use dating and relationships for true alchemy to heal, grow and be fully self-expressed

(3) integrate pain from the past and reconcile with the Self

 

so they can have happy, fulfilling emotionally mature relationships with themselves and others. 

"The Girl" is a disembodied woman who operates from an emotionally immature consciousness and brings fear and self-doubt to her interactions with self and others. It causes pain and chaos in her life.

"The Woman" lives in her authentic purpose and embodies an emotionally mature consciousness and she continuously brings the benefits of tending to her own needs to her interactions with others. This creates power and freedom in her life.

In Embodied Womanhood I take you through my three stage process

Stage One: Emotional Mastery

Stage Two: Relationship Alchemy

Stage Three: Reconciliation With Self​
