You can learn to embrace yourself, as you are.
You’re smart. You’re kind. Somehow you make it seem like you’re holding it all together. And yet, you’re feeling snappy and frazzled, on the edge of burnout. You’re taking care of everyone else but you.
You’re trying your best to get it all done — work; the kids; all the emails; making some kind of space for movement or even a little tv time — and you fall in bed every night tired? You say to yourself, “I’m going to sleep now, because I’ll wake up tired again.”
But the phone calls to you. It’s easy. You can scroll through a hundred photos and videos on Instagram or funny cat videos on TikTok. It’s mindless. It’s sort of fun. It’s easy. And damn it, it’s the only time you’ve had to yourself all day.
So you wake up tired the next day. Again.
You don’t have to feel like this.
But how do you change this?
The work begins with becoming kinder to yourself.
How do I know? I was once where you are.
I was a lifelong people pleaser, obsessed-with-productivity-hacks over-worker, and anxious most of the day.
Suffering a mini stroke in 2015 made me wake up and become more curious about why my needs were rarely on my to-do list. Being diagnosed with cPTSD made me realize I had been treating myself this way from childhood.
Over time, with the help of 22 years of mindfulness meditation practice, years of studying neuroscience — specifically how the brain builds effective habits — and facilitating transformative change with women in workshops and one-on-one work, I can help you.
I developed a method for dropping the doubt and becoming mindfully kind to myself. I’m always becoming more curious about how I could add more calm, joy, and gratitude to my life. Over time, I’ve written a new story of who I am.
As a skilled facilitator, I want to share the path to powerful transformation with you.
Your life will be changed.
Becoming Kinder to Yourself.
This 4-week workshop
community conversations, wise insights,
and tangible actions to change
the limiting stories
you’ve been telling yourself.
RECOGNIZE THAT YOU’RE SUFFERING
The first step to becoming kinder to yourself is to realize that you’re stuck in a spiral of doubt, anxiety, and working to please other people.
In this 90-minute session, we’ll talk together about our shared experiences and notice how many women are being unkind to themselves. And we think we’re alone.
I’ll share 3 tangible actions to make some space around those unkind thoughts. You’ll practice them by yourself during the week before our next session.
UNDERSTAND WHY YOU’RE NOT KIND TO YOURSELF.
When you can look at how the shoulds of this culture and external pressures of how your family of origin expected you to live, you can start to see why you’ve been unkind to yourself.
Up until now.
We’ll discuss how neurological stress can take its toll on our bodies and how we can release ourselves from that stress in our bodies, in the moment.
I’ll share 3 tangible actions to help you see why you’ve been unkind. You’ll practice them by yourself during the week before our next session.
LEARN THAT IT’S POSSIBLE TO END THE WAY YOU’RE SUFFERING.
When you realize that you’re not being kind to yourself, and you start to understand the reasons why, you have the chance to commit to new habits.
In this session, we’ll talk about the science-backed facts of how to build a habit that adds to your life, instead of diminishing yourself.
I’ll walk you through the process, showing you how to build a habit consciously. And with joy.
You’ll leave the session with a commitment to start one new habit that week.
I’ll share 3 more tangible actions you can take during the week to start building a habit of being kinder to yourself.
BECOME MORE CURIOUS ABOUT THE PATH AHEAD
In order to build kinder habits after this workshop, you’ll need to build a habit of becoming more curious about your path forward.
I’ll share the path of transformation — it’s the human story of becoming, not flashy party tricks — so you can walk the path on your own.
(Or, you can work with me as your guide.)
We’ll also talk about how to become more curious about you, your reactions, and how to learn to let go of the story you’ve been telling yourself about who you are.
When we leave the class, you’ll have a stronger sense of who you are and how to move forward in your life.
The best part of this workshop?
You. And the women you’ll meet in community here.
What have the women who have taken my workshops said about the experience of coming to know the other women through the weeks of meeting together, again and again?
Before I became part of this community of women, I thought I was weird. I thought my anxiety was my fault.
Now I know I’m not alone anymore.
The first session of this workshop begins on Tuesday, November 29th, at 4:30 pm, Pacific time. The last session is on December 20th.

Here are the experiences of other women who have worked with me.
So many of us are having a hard time being kind to ourselves right now.
You’re not alone.
Sign up for this workshop. It’s an act of committing to treating yourself more kindly.
You deserve this.
