Reclaiming Your Worth: Rewriting the Stories that Hold You Back

Reclaiming Your Worth: Rewriting the Stories that Hold You Back

As human beings we are always making meaning of our experiences. Even from a young age, we make meaning of the things we experience by creating stories that shape how we think about ourselves and show up in our adult lives.

The challenge is, some stories can empower us to stand in the truth of who we are, while others can be false narratives that can lead us to live disempowered lives we hide behind, such as:


“I struggle to say no because I’ll disappoint people.”


“When I lose weight, I’ll get into a good relationship”


“I have to make $100K in order to be successful”


Our stories can portray us as the victim or free us to live a satisfying life by standing in the true worthiness of who we are.

The best news is that you have the power to question these stories in order to reclaim your worthiness and create your best life. 

How would your world change if your stories were not holding you back?

Join us in this workshop as we identify and explore the false stories that are keeping you stuck through a series of meditations, exercises and group coaching. You’ll be able to re-frame negative experiences in order to create a more empowering life.

15 spots available to create an intimate group, save yours here!

What are Emotionally Available People and Why Do We Date Them?

Dating an emotionally unavailable person can lead to a lot of dissatisfaction in a relationship. You may be dating a person who is fun to be with, someone who you have great chemistry with and checks off all of your boxes--but you notice that something feels off. It can feel hurtful to feel like they aren't really with you or aren't able to open up or see the real you.

Why do we sometimes date a person for much longer than we'd want if they are not available for an emotional connection?

Emotional Unavailability is term gets thrown around a lot these days,

SO, come join us as we talk about:

-What does emotional unavailability mean?
-How do we spot it while dating?
-What tendencies do people have who are emotionally unavailable?
-How can we break this pattern if we have a history of dating emotionally unavailable people?

We'll start the discussion with learning a few things about emotional availability and then respond to discussion questions together. Each person has a chance to share as much or as little about their experience as they feel comfortable. We're always learning from each other and hope you'll leave with good takeaways to improve your dating experience.

Navigating Well Through Online Dating: Profiles, Messaging, Selection

These days if you want to start dating, you'll have the most opportunities dating online.

But is there like an art to it?

How do you create an effective profile? How do you engage in a sincere way and find the others who are genuine in their profiles too? How do you navigate your preferences with a stranger? Can you really tell right away if it's not a fit or do you invest more time to find out?

I believe there are more successful ways to approach it so that you can attract a good person and be more likely to spend less time with people who are not realistic options for you. Let's talk about what works and what gets fewer results. We'll make time to get feedback from others on questions you have or tips you'd like on your profile/messaging approach.

This month we're taking advantage of the weather and meeting at picnic tables in a park. We'll keep the conversation shorter and socialize afterwards--feel free to bring a Frisbee or whatever games you would want to play.

Look forward to seeing you then!
If you like, bring a drink or snack to share.

Communication Breakdown Between the Sexes

Women, have you ever spent way too much mental space wondering what a man meant by what he said? Men, have you ever said something to a woman with good intent and she reacted terribly?

Come discuss the differences between men and women in communication. Where are the areas we tend to misunderstand each other? Get answers to the long running questions we tend to ask, "What did he/she mean by that?" How can we both communicate and listen to have better understanding in a partnership?
