If you're sick of never escaping from your goals and always feeling that internal pressure and worry, I can help you rediscover who you really are so you can start living by your own rules and finally find the peace and contentment you've been searching for.
Have you ever looked around at your life and wondered, "How did I end up here?" You're not alone. I spent years of my life concerned with doing the "right thing," checking off the boxes of a "good life," and never feeling any satisfaction. I was playing by the rules, but I never felt satisfied. I was all consumed with being more, doing more, and being "better," all to escape from my feelings of worry and anxiety.
“The trouble with being in the rat race is that even if you win, you're still a rat.”

I've been that strung-out-on-accolades-and-praise overachiever. The one who never celebrates her victories and just keeps on to the next goal, the one just out of reach, the one that will make it all better. But guess what? It never does.
Maybe you can relate: I am a reformed "good girl," a.k.a. overachieving people pleaser, always on the lookout for another achievement "high" or accolade (though I would have never admitted to it!). I did things "right": said the right things, played by the rules, and got what I wanted - or at least what I thought I wanted. And it left me feeling empty, overworked, and burned out. My accomplishments never felt like enough, and my anxious thoughts were right under the surface when I slowed down (most people never even knew!).
As soon as I reached a goal, I moved directly onto the next thing I wanted to improve about myself. I had high functioning anxiety: I was fueled by my anxiety. Until I realized I had it all wrong my entire life: Showing up just as myself and slowing way the eff down gave me tremendous power over my life. I just need to be me and be fully present, always. Because being "me" is where the magic is. What if just showing up is the missing ingredient?
