Catch Your Breath
a 3-month program to take you from
overwhelm to possibility
It’s hard to #liveyourbestlife
when you’re holding on by a thread
Do you feel like you’re struggling just to keep your head above water?
Sometimes it might feel like you need a 26-hour day just to fit everything in. But even if you had more time, chances are you’d still be tempted to binge watch Netflix in the dark instead of whatever you’re supposed to be doing.
Are you haunted by a bitchy voice from inside your head
telling you that you just need to be more organized, work harder
and just get your shit together already?
Maybe you replay conversations you’ve had or things you’ve done on an endless loop because you wish you’d done things differently. Or maybe you keep procrastinating and putting things off because you feel to paralyzed to do much of anything.
Feeling this way can be painfully isolating.
It can make you feel completely alone and keep you from connecting with people even when you’re with them. It’s like being in an impenetrable bubble of shittiness that nothing good can get through.
There’s so much pressure to pretend that you have everything under control.
Most of us do it at least some of the time. And that makes it so easy to look around at other women and wonder how they have it so together when you feel like you’re falling apart at the seams.
Are you waiting for something to change while feeling like you’re faking your life or just going through the motions?
Do you worry that eventually someone is going to notice? Or worse, that maybe no one will ever notice?
Do you care about things and have passions, but they mostly seem like a distant dream?
It’s hard to hold onto big dreams when you’re just trying to make it through the day. And then the next day, And the next.
Let's be real
you might want to write a novel, start a business or change the world, but right now you’re just trying to make it to happy hour in one piece.
But the truth is: You didn’t get here on your own
The world tells us that if we just do more yoga, organize our closets, stick to the right diet plan and #LeanIn, we’ll be happy and fulfilled. All we have to do is work a little harder and hustle a bit more.
We’re taught that if you’re not happy and successful and fulfilled, it’s because you’re not trying hard enough.
What a crock of utter bullshit.
Women have been sold the idea that we can be happy if we just figure out how to do more then we’ll have the lives we want.
The Instagrammable life we’re all supposed to be pursuing is based on a smokescreen of privilege, patriarchy and perfectionism. It isn’t real and pursuing it is like chasing a toxic unicorn.
We live in a culture that diminishes women and our accomplishments. This makes us feel like we’re not enough and like we don’t really deserve the good things in our lives – like they might be taken away at any moment once we’re found out.
These feelings aren’t your fault.
But you are the only one who can change them.
Living this way is not only exhausting – it SUCKS. But it’s not your only option.
Many of these problems have roots that are systemic (leading to branches and leaves that are completely batshit crazy) but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t ways to feel better.
You can build up your resilience so that you recognize what’s happening, make better decisions and find more fulfillment.
There’s a lot we can do with our internal mindset. Working to uncover the internal barriers and cultural programming that are holding you back can help you develop new, more helpful habits.
With practice, you can form new neurological pathways in your brain and, over time, transform the way you think and feel, reduce anxiety and make it easier to manage your emotions. It takes work, but the results can feel downright magical.
Some of this work can certainly be done on your own. There's an entire industry devoted to personal development and self-help with tons of amazing resources. You know this already.
But making these changes alone from inside the black hole of shittiness isn’t exactly a walk in the park.
Think about this: if going it alone was going to work for you, wouldn’t you have done it already?
The fact is, you’re here. And I can help.
I help women identify and overcome the bullshit that is keeping them stuck in their lives.
With my clients, I hold a sacred space to make peace with themselves, talk about what scares the hell out of them and clear what’s holding them back. My process is a blend of wholehearted empathy, intuitive questioning, kick-ass motivation, and sprinkle of magic that allows clients to access their feminine wisdom and build their inner reserves.
"When I signed up to work with Jen, I didn't know who I was anymore. I'd lost myself and thought I was a horrible mother and wife. But Jen gave me hope and made me realize that it was my inner critic that was killing me and that I needed to address it right away. She was interested in what I had to say and always had a way to address the problem. Thank you Jen - my life has turned around in a great way!!"

Why don't we take a minute,
so you can catch your breath?
How we'll work together:
1:1 coaching sessions – we’ll meet 12 times over a total of 3-4 months by phone or Zoom video chat (your choice) to talk about YOU and focus on how to create some breathing space in your life so you can start feeling better and making the changes that you choose.
We'll delve into research-based tools, practices and exercises that will help you learn new strategies for overcoming anxiety and break out of unhelpful patterns. I'll hold you gently accountable for the commitments you make to yourself.
You'll have access to exclusive materials and recordings.
Homework assignments that we agree on together will support your work. Plus, I'm always available between sessions via email for questions.
Investment: $1750 or 3 payments of $595
"Working with Jen raised my awareness of the stories that I rumble with and how I can get stuck in those stories. The biggest lesson was I need to be self compassionate, to be a loving witness to all of my feelings, to be curious and not get stuck in shame which is when I avoid, freeze, or lash out. Being honest about what I feel and need are key.
I found Jen to be a wise, intuitive, kind and compassionate person, who holds a non-judgemental space. I felt seen and heard, and of course the laughter too, there has been a mixture of laughter and tears, both of which have been healing. I thank you with all of my heart.
