Are you a sensitive and empathic woman who wants to feel good about yourself?

Women together

  • Do you look to other people for affirmation or answers, even though you want to trust, love, and value yourself as you are?  
  • Are you embarrassed when you’re moved to tears, even though you like that you care about other people?
  • Do you try to control what you see, read, watch, and who you socialize with in order to stay balanced inside yourself?
  • Are you passionate about personal and spiritual growth, but, wish you could slow down and relax rather than working so hard?
  • Would you like to feel good peaceful, inspired, and energized by your life?
When you’re a sensitive, deeply-feeling person, emotions can feel like tidal waves rather than peaceful waters.

As a result, you might become more reserved, overwhelmed, or lose your words.

It’s easy to feel drained or distracted when this happens, as though you don’t have access to your own mind! 

When this happens, you might seek comfort, understanding, and suggestions from other people rather than from yourself.
And, in doing so, you lose out on your most vital resource: yourself!
Inside all of us is a powerhouse of joy, love, peace, strength, and potential! 
And, when we learn to ride the waves of feeling into flow, we find the joy in being truly ourselves…

I understand. I know personally, what it’s like to feel so much and to be told “you’re too sensitive.”

To be told that you’re “too” anything, brings the feeling that you have to fix yourself, and that being different is wrong.

This started a big wave of self-discovery and a passion to discover greater truths and answers for me, but it took time to see my sensitivity as a gift.

From a very early age, I knew I was different.

Most people didn’t seem to feel things as deeply as I did or worry as much. I always had a wonderful inner world that was filled with enthusiasm, curiosity, joy, wonder, and gratitude.

I often had A-Ha! experiences, where I felt this inner knowing, and it felt great!  I loved big and loved to grow and learn!

But, I’d doubt myself when my feelings got too big. I’d feel lost in all my feelings. 

It was confusing.

I was so relaxed and expansive when I was in nature or with animals and I wanted to be that way around other people!

I also felt called to help people because I felt their feelings. I knew I was a good listener and, from the time I was very little, people asked me for advice.

But, I’d feel anxious when I wasn’t doing something for other people, and then, I’d feel disconnected or left out when I wasn’t able to bring myself into the conversation.

(I think this is very typical for women. We want to be there for others, and we try to balance others’ needs with our own).

I was always reading about how to improve myself: how I could feel better and be more grounded, and still be there for others. I became obsessed with finding the answers. I knew it had to be easier. 

I also looked to calm-looking people for support, understanding, or tools.

But, that didn’t help me to feel centered in myself or to trust myself in new situations. 

I’d go home and analyze everything but, I’d become more anxious about how to be a person, a sensitive person in the world. I just didn’t know how.

The truth is, I didn’t know how to be in the world and connect with others without feeling overwhelmed by my feelings and leaving a part of myself behind.

And, it was hard to tell whose feelings were whose! Over time, I realized I was feeling lots of people’s feelings as well as my own! And, I needed to tools to create clear boundaries.

So, I began to experiment with techniques from energy healing and intuitive development and everything came together!

I realized that the process which worked best for me and for the people I saw was integrated: integrating mind, heart, body, and spirit with full acceptance and love. It wasn’t trying to control feelings, put them in a box, or “make” them better. It was about flow and allowing.

I was in such a mental discipline, and though I brought in “the body,” it wasn’t the same as using visualization, intuition, and energy work as gateways to greater experiencing, knowing, and being.

After 20 years in the field of psychology, I transitioned into coaching where I could bring together all I learned in psychology with the wisdom of mindfulness, intuition, self-healing energy work, and empowerment coaching. 
These tools and practices focus on mind/body/heart/spirit wellness, and create ease and confidence, the sensitive woman’s way! 
They’re powerful and they’re useful because they come naturally to sensitive people!
I use these practices every day, and, now, I offer them to you!
I love teaching women, just like you, to honor their sensitivity, release emotions, find their center, and tap into their most vibrantly alive and centered self in connection! 

Faith“After working with Heather, I feel more grounded, calm, and at the same time lighter on my feet. It was deep and transformative! She helped me visualize my problems in new ways and see solutions I couldn’t see before. Her gentle, sure guidance opened up new ideas, a new sense of stability and new pathways in my brain.” ~ Faith H. Portland, OR. 

This is about feeling good about ourselves as sensitive people!
If you’re ready to create greater ease and confidence, I offer a complimentary Illumination Session to focus with you on what you hope for yourself and how to create it!

Note: Coaching is not psychotherapy. Coaching is for people who are eager to take responsibility for their lives, are ready to take the next step in their growth, and want to incorporate additional tools and new ways of being which support their lives!
