Diving Deep - Unconditional Self-Love Cultivation Series

Because of the importance of self-love work, I offer this course at all times, and you can get started now! Click here to take the dive of your lifetime...

what lurks deep within you? let's work together to grow the most positive, nourishing sense of yourself you can possibly have.

what lurks deep within you? let's work together to grow the most positive, nourishing sense of yourself you can possibly have.

“I must be a mermaid… I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living.”
- Anais Nin

I believe in your potential. I believe that deep within you there are tremendous gifts waiting for you to allow them to rise to the surface.

I have made it no secret that I am on a quest to support others to tap into the greatest resource we can all access - self-love. My own lived experience and a wealth of research have brought this concept to the forefront of the therapeutic work I do. Regardless of what your aims are in your personal work, whether it is to have healthy, enjoyable relationships, overcome personal challenges and the inevitable obstacles life presents, reach success in your chosen field, achieve specific accomplishments, effect positive change in the world, parent lovingly and effectively, move beyond fear, anxiety, depression, and dissatisfaction with life, or become more creative, more joyful, more whole, the very first place you must begin is in working on your relationship with yourself.

This series is the signature experience for individuals on a path of transformation, achievement, wellness, and wholehearted living. Through creative, personalized, and evidence-based therapeutic work, I will support you in going deep within yourself, uncovering your hidden stories and the messages you have integrated into developing your self-image, likely to be the source of you currently not feeling like you are “good enough.” This revealing work will give way to facilitated, supported release, allowing you to become open, safely vulnerable, and ready to cultivate a new, more positive sense of self, and begin to more thoroughly love yourself.  

While the phrase“self-love”may sound“woo”or new-age, too light-hearted or fadish, here is the truth: lack of self-love is the same as low self-esteem, low self-worth, poor self-efficacy, and all of these states of being are associated, from many research sources, with low rates of personal success, poor relationship quality, family behavioral issues, depression, unhealthy risk-taking behaviors, addiction, eating disorders, and other low measures for quality of life. Lacking healthy appreciation for your self, flaws and all, is contributing to you being stuck in old patterns, not making the breakthroughs you want in career or creativity, living with poor health, being in painful relationships with family, friends, and partners (or potential partners), wasting time, being frustrated, lonely, fearful, angry, sad. Cultivating self-love is a powerful treatment for all of these issues. Learning to love yourself will transform your entire life.  

If you find yourself saying, “I just can’t seem to…"

  • get out of this slump
  • achieve my goals
  • have a great relationship
  • get well
  • feel fulfilled
  • feel satisfied
  • feel joy
  • feel confident
  • feel beautiful
  • express myself well

  • have clear boundaries
  • take time for myself
  • say “no”
  • make the changes I want
  • be the parent I strive to be
  • keep exercising
  • eat well
  • make more money

...then you need to dive deep within yourself and work to cultivate self-love

In this powerful series you will work one-on-one with me, an empathic teacher, licensed counselor, motivational coach, and dynamic facilitator who has excelled in achieving self-love and success for myself and supported hundreds of others in overcoming their self-love barriers. We will work closely to create a process and pathway that is specific to your needs and will yield positive results in your life. There are other self-love programs out there, but this series is the only one that offers direct, one-on-one attention and deeply personalized breakthrough work, rather than just a one-size-fits-all template to follow. We are not all the same, we all have different work to do - you are unique and deserve dedicated, direct support for your one-of-a-kind process.

The new year is coming! It’s the rallying cry of the masses imploring us to BE DIFFERENT, BE BETTER, BECOME ALL THE VERY BEST THINGS!!!

We can’t all be all the best things, right?! Nope. But chances are good that there is something in your life you want to improve to bring you even greater success, satisfaction, joy, and wellness. 

In truth, the start of the new year does carry the promise of things yet to come. It feels like a natural time to make positive changes, but DANG! Making change is HARD WORK!

We easily fall back into hum-drum, woe-is-me, old patterns even when they don't serve us well, because that is what our brains and bodies know best. But, ultimately, there ARE ways to make effective change!

Being intentional and addressing barriers that prevent us from achieving progress can allow us to harness the inspiration of the turn of a calendar page and its promise of a fresh start to actually make effective, desired changes in our lives. 

What are your goals for the year? Whether they’re related to a healthy lifestyle, improving relationships, juicing up your creative self, or leaping ahead professionally you will be most likely to succeed if you take compelling but achievable action steps with a clear plan that aligns well with your very unique needs, personality, and situation.
