For so long you have hustled.
“Fake it until you make it” is a daily mantra for you.
Never let them see you sweat is a way of life.
Imagine if you could feel more confident and in control. If you weren’t looking outside of yourself for input all of the time or comparing your life to others.
How is that possible?
Because you learned how to…
The truth is, being the go-to person, always striving for perfection, and plowing ahead at a feverish pace has helped you keep your high functioning anxiety at bay. And now those behaviors just aren’t working anymore. Your anxiety keeps creeping in more and more. You see it in your kids, you see it at work, you see it in your relationships. It is permeating everything.
We have been taught that our deepest needs, feelings, and desires are scary and we need to protect the world from them. So we hustle to perform, achieve, and earn our worthiness.
Live your life with more confidence. Feel as good on the inside as you look on the outside.
Stop ruminating, over-analyzing, and worrying “you will be found out.”
Recognize when your high functioning anxiety has taken over the driver’s seat and know what to do next.
Coach in Your Pocket is a revolutionary way of working together with a coach and is perfectly designed for those with High Functioning Anxiety. This methodology allows you to reach out to me 24/7 via a messaging app on your phone.
Imagine being able to reach a trusted, knowledgable expert in High Functioning Anxiety at any time of day, any day of the week. Imagine not having to wait until your scheduled session to vent, ask questions, get clarification, and celebrate victories.
Working with me is not your typical one-on-one session where you come to my office each week, we talk, and you go home. And then the next week we sit and talk and you go home, rinse and repeat ad nauseam. In fact, we don’t work that way at all. This is a full-contact program and a minimum three-month commitment to give you the space and support to recognize old coping strategies, build new ones, and practice these skills in the real world.
Throughout our three months together, you can leave me a voice or text message literally 24/7 through an easy-to-use app called Voxer and I will respond during my office hours, Monday through Friday from 9am – 6pm Eastern.
This type of work is a game-changer. Clients progress so much faster with this instant access.
You can Vox me daily (or as often as you like) to share when…
In addition to unlimited Voxing, you will have the option to meet face-to-face each month via video chat.
These 30-minute sessions give us an opportunity to dive deeper into your stories. We will explore where your Monger is holding you back, where you are repeatedly getting stuck, learn to recognize old coping skills that no longer work, and build new ones.
In addition to our monthly appointments and unlimited access to me through Voxer, you will receive:
A hard copy of my book, The Happier Approach: Be Kind to Yourself, Feel Happier and Still Accomplish Your Goals. This book is the crux of our work together and the culmination of my years researching and studying high functioning anxiety. The book goes deeper into the core principals of my approach and introduces the language we will use during our work together.
The Coach in Your Pocket Workbook is a supplement to The Happier Approach book. Complete with worksheets, poems, ideas to ponder, space to reflect, and even a Mad-Libs style template to use when you are feeling stuck, this workbook is a valuable tool for both during and after our work together.
Access to a private portal where you can download and share your worksheets with me, easily schedule appointments, conveniently make payments, and ask me any questions in one central place. Most importantly, this platform is completely secure and HIPAA compliant.
If you are tired of the quick fixes and want to start making slow, gradual changes that last, Coach in Your Pocket is for you. My clients tend to fall into one of these categories—do any of them sound like you?
You already checked all the boxes (or at least most of them), and yet you keep asking yourself, “Is this all there is?” You realize the answer may be internal but have no idea how to get there.
Mom, sister, daughter, wife, friend… The list goes on and on. You are always the go-to person for everyone and everything, and now the emotional and physical toll is starting to show.
THE THERAPY GRADUATE
You have done therapy, you know your past and your patterns (well, most of them), but you still keep getting stuck. You know why you feel this way, but you don’t know what to do about it.
This is more than just getting to the root and naming your triggers. This is about recognizing a trigger and knowing what to do about it once you see it.
This isn’t fluff. This is looking at yourself and your life differently.
It might get uncomfortable and it might be hard—and it will be so worth it.
We can’t get off the hamster wheel without a little introspection. You have to be prepared to transform your life. I keep my client load small so I can work closely with each of my clients and dive deep.
First, let’s make sure this program is a good fit for you. This is a highly personalized approach, so I am offering free 30-minute consultations before you sign up. To get the most out of our work together I recommend a 3-month commitment, but it is not required each program is month to month.
