I help stressed-out overachieving women who feel ashamed of being unhappy with their seemingly “perfect” life and achievements.

My clients struggle as you do. Despite being smart, resourceful, and determined, life is hard.

When they first come in, they are mentally exhausted from putting their feelings aside to push through challenging events, such as workplace stressors, difficult relationships, breakups, and deaths in the family. They are often the person everyone goes to for help and don’t feel supported when they need help.

Life is not how they thought it would be.

The dream career has turned into a nightmare. Bosses and coworkers undermine them, and they experience microaggressions and inappropriate comments daily with little or no support from coworkers or the organization.

Their hard work is not appreciated. They are tasked with difficult projects and work long hours with little or no acknowledgment. When they ask for help, they are accused of not being a team player and made to feel guilty for asking for a break. They feel like they constantly need to prove themselves in ways their colleagues don’t.

Workplace stress is interfering with their lives.

Sleep is disturbed by racing thoughts and worries. Their personal relationships and mental health have suffered. They feel irritable, exhausted, and generally disillusioned about life.

They feel like they are failing their friends and family.

And their confidence as a professional is at an all-time low.

Before they came to see me, they didn’t see a way out of their situation and were fearful that this was just the way life was going to be. They were worried about disappointing friends and family and afraid to admit they were struggling. And they felt certain they were never going to find peace in their life.

Like my clients, you deserve to feel supported and nurtured, even in a society that undermines and challenges your well-being every day.
