Hey, I see you
You work hard but no matter how much pressure you put on yourself, you rarely, if ever, live up to your own expectations.
You want things to change but you're frustrated and not sure how to change them.
Your social feed tells you to just #stopprocrastinating, do some #self-care and #loveyourself, as if you can just flip an internal switch and everything will be fine.
But we both know there’s not enough bubble bath in the world to make up for the fact that some days it feels like you’re drowning when everyone else is swimming.
It’s not just you.
Our culture has insane expectations for women. Many of them go unspoken and unchallenged – but that doesn’t change the fact that we spend most of our time and energy trying to live up to them.
We're taught that women should be pretty, thin and always striving to perfect our bodies but also, everything should look natural and effortless.
At school, and then at work, it became clear that we should be non-confrontational and allow others to take credit for our ideas but also speak up for ourselves and be assertive.
Choosing not to have children is selfish, but if you are a parent, be prepared to work like you don’t have kids and also parent like you don’t have a job.
Our cultural myths about what we’re supposed to be have us walking a bouncing tightrope.
We’ve internalized the cultural expectations that, for women, perfection is the baseline.
And it’s making us miserable.
By holding ourselves to ridiculous standards, we’re not just making our own lives miserable - we’re modeling these patterns for the generations that follow us.
Hey there, I'm Jen: I help high achieving women get where they want to go.
I work with clients to align their intentions, values and actions so that they can show up more authentically in their lives and work. My clients overcome self-doubt and internal barriers so they can get curious about themselves and their desires. This gives them the freedom to live, love and lead on their own terms.
In our sessions, I hold a sacred space for clients to uncover inner roadblocks. You'll learn to make peace with your inner critic, hone your focus on the impact you want to make and clear what's holding you back. My process is a blend of wholehearted empathy, intuitive questioning, grounded motivation, and a sprinkle of magic that allows clients to access their own wisdom, build resiliency and step into authentic power.
My Alphabet Soup: I'm a professional certified coach (PCC) through the International Coach Federation (ICF). I have an MA in Human Development and I'm both a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator and a Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator (which means that my work incorporates the research of Dr. Brené Brown).
I found Jen’s small group workshop to be super helpful. It was a judgement-free environment where I felt supported and encouraged. I loved that the podcasts and homework were short enough so that we would have time to do them, but long enough to give us real insight and precipitate change.
I look forward to taking another class from Jen to learn more about thought processes that I didn’t even know I had as well as ways I can grow and become even more badass!

We can start from where you are now.
When you learn to recognize and overcome the internalized bullshit,
you become a force to be reckoned with.
You get to choose the direction that you want to head in
and kick the things you don't want to the curb.
You can stop people-pleasing and create meaningful relationships with people you choose to have in your life.
You get to build your courage and confidence to speak up for what you believe in, create what you want, and have an impact on the world.
