Where Can One Find Confidence?

What's your confidence training program?

Are you confident? Are you sure? If you are confident, where did you get that confidence? These are common questions that I hear from women in my life and often […]



When Everything Seems to be Going Wrong, Here’s the FIRST Thing You Should Do

Clients and friends tell me all the time about things that go awry in their lives and those moments in which everything seems to be going wrong. I ask them what they do in those moments and their answers vary, but more often than not they tell me that they just keep going.

The Fourteen-Year Pain Lesson

I left that physical therapy session feeling really embarrassed and somewhat ashamed of myself. Most of my time is spent guiding women into lives of power, happiness, and self care and here I was having spent fourteen years in a sufficient amount of pain.

A few weeks ago, I started working with a physical therapist. Here’s how our first conversation went:

Channeling Your 21-Year-Old Self

I had forgotten how full of hope and energy a young female co-ed could be. They were hopeful and innocent, yet smart and worldly. They were everything that I thought I’d be for the rest of my life.

How Could She Not Be Confident?

I’ve noticed an interesting phenomenon in my work with women. Almost every woman I meet is sure that other women have more going for them and more confidence than they do.

Changing the Internal Mean Girl into the Confident Woman

There seems to be an epidemic of women who walk around with an internal mean girl who criticizes them endlessly. How can we get rid of this mean girl?

Since most of my work time is spent with women, I've learned a lot about the internal workings of said women.  There seems to be an epidemic of women who […]



Losing My Voice

All of a sudden it was gone; my voice, my confidence, my ability to stay strong even in the face of disapproval or disagreement from others. How did this happen?

Losing my voice caught me off guard in that I thought I'd had it all figured out. My voice was strong, my confidence high, my place in the world solid […]
