For healers, helpers, creatives, and mamas in transition, The Breakthrough Session can be that much-needed push from darkness or dimness into light. If you’re suffering from overwhelm, guilt, self-doubt, and burnout, if you’re feeling the deep yearning to awaken part of yourself that’s gone to sleep, if you’re dealing with the push-and-pull between over-providing and guilt that mothers and caregivers so often feel, The Breakthrough can help carry you over the threshold of transition so you can see the possibilities beyond. When you’re ready to unpack the complexities of your life and commit to working on yourself, this singular 90-minute phone session can be the impetus to feel at home in your own skin, to clear your blocks and discover a new way of seeing things . This session is designed to be the shift you need to move forward. With clarity, confidence, and calm, we move toward insight, inspiration, and, at last, integration. Together.
