Can you be a successful woman and not burnout?…
Can you arrive at midlife without the nagging feeling that your life should be more meaningful?
The answer is yes, but this becomes impossible if we stay in our head, avoiding our body and being confused about our emotional world.
Many women arrive at midlife with a successful career and things that look “good on paper” but once they hit their 40s they start feeling a level of dissatisfaction that asks them to change. At this point sporadic yoga, massages, retreats, and entertainment begin to lose their effectiveness because the dissatisfaction of not tending to what’s important to you is catching up.
The solution for women feeling this way is to use a whole-person approach aiming for the root cause. This means looking at how all areas of your life are connected to your response to stress and the decrease of meaning and connection.
Does stress at your job or in your relationship cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? Are you developing gut, hormonal, or other issues after thriving for a long time? Are parts of you wanting to isolate, and hide from the world while others feel lonely and want company? Is your busy schedule making you angry, depressed, or anxious?
Consider these many areas as aspects of your personality that have been helping you survive in a “lop-sided way”. As we work together, we will look at all these “inner roles” to help you gain understanding, reconfigure internal conflicts, and build inner peace and clarity
In this work, you’ll gain immense clarity on how these different agendas interact in your life. We won’t be analyzing you or following complicated coaching plans. We will progressively expand your intelligence to encompass your entire nervous system and emotions. This moves you from “living in the head”, a problem that hunts professional women, to becoming a regulated and highly intuitive woman.
Here are some concepts that we will explore during our work together:
Nervous System Regulation and Applications of Polyvagal Theory:
Calibrating your nervous system is imperative to be able to recover your sense of well-being, energy, and balanced emotions. The practices of breath-initiated movement, vagal toning, and applications of polyvagal theory to yoga are some of the practical means I use to help my clients. These practices reduce the onset of the fight, flight, or freeze response that most modern humans are triggering regularly. I apply these tools in a way that allows the individual to build their own practice to the point that it becomes a lifestyle. The results go from a calmer mind to healthier health markers such as heart health or hormonal balance and of course, harmonious relationships at work and home.
Somatic Parts and Internal Family Systems Work:
IFS is an evidence-based therapy used as a way of understanding personal and intimate relationships and stepping into life with confidence, calm, compassion, courage, creativity, clarity, curiosity, and connectedness. IFS is frequently used as psychotherapy, helping people by accessing and healing their protective and vulnerable inner parts (commonly called inner children). It creates connectedness by helping people first access their Self and, from that core, come to understand and unburden their parts from maladaptive survival patterns and beliefs. Somatic parts is the application of this IFS model using bottom-up (from body to brain) therapies such as awareness, breathing, movement, resonance, and touch. Both conceive every human being as a system of inner parts led by a core Self. With Somatic parts work, the Self (with Capital “S”) is restored to its leadership position to bring harmony to the person’s system.
Individualized Nourishment and Supplementation:
Because we live in such a hectic world many of us fail to meet the minimum recommended fruits, vegetables, fiber, etc, let alone get the optimum amount of nutrients any given day. This puts most women in a difficult position because stress can deplete our bodies affecting important functions. That is why I support all of my clients with the highest quality, organic and non-GMO superfoods, gut repair blends, and supplementation. Superfoods have been proven to contain the highest density of nutrients, and your gut is been deemed your second brain responsible for many of your mood responses. This highly bio-available “food medicine” skyrockets your journey from day one regardless of your busy schedule becoming a core foundation for sustainable energy & health.
