The Roadmap to You
Webinars and Courses
You want to care well for others, and you know you need to care well for yourself. But sometimes walking that tightrope can feel harrowing. Through my 20 years in practice, here's what I've learned: we've ALL picked up subtle habits, burdens and beliefs that keep us feeling overwhelmed and out-of-balance.
It doesn't have to be that way. You can pinpoint the beliefs and burdens that are weighing you down and holding you back. And you can transform them into life-giving allies. I can show you how.
My online Webinars, trainings, and courses, based on a proven, evidence-based model of therapy, Internal Family Systems (IFS), give you a roadmap to you. I'll help you identify and transform the burdens you've been carrying so that you can live your life with confidence and clarity.
We're told to "guard our hearts," and sometimes protection is needed. But when protective tendencies take over, we miss out on connecting wholeheartedly to the people we love and the work we value. In this course, I'll introduce you to 7 common protectors that keep you from the love and satisfaction you desire and help you identify your most common protector and the burden it carries.
One specific way we protect ourselves is to numb or avoid our painful feelings. But when we numb our feelings of vulnerability, we deny ourselves the joy, restoration, and spiritual comfort God designed us to experience. In this course, you'll learn the 7 common numbing behaviors and the more vulnerable feelings they prevent. You'll also learn how to transform 1 numbing behavior into a life-giving habit.

So many of us know all too well how to persist through challenging relationships, disappointments, and thwarted dreams. Survival mode works for a season, but if we shut down our hearts, minds, and souls for too long, we're doing damage to ourselves and others. In this course, I'll teach you 5 keys to thriving mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, even amidst hardship. (This course builds on elements taught in Identify and Transform.)
Help for the Helpers
Early on in my work, I struggled with burn-out. As an Enneagram 2, it’s hard for me to ask others for help. I had to learn the hard way what’s it like to face crisis without support systems in place. But I learned from that mistake. If you're in a helping profession and experiencing burn-out, overwhelm, or lack of clarity, you've come to the right place. I’ve been there.
Burn-out, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma are all real issues for those in helping professions. When you don't care well for your own soul, you won't be as effective with others. In this course, I'll teach you to identify the red flags for burn-out and establish the 5 pillars of self-care. When you care for yourself well, you're more equipped to provide sustainable, life-giving care for others.
In this course, I'll introduce you to a Christian approach to the Internal Family Systems (IFS) model. You'll learn the basic elements of the model and experience for yourself what it's like to connect with the various parts of your soul with compassion. You'll learn how to identify and transform the subtle protectors, such as empathy, problem solving, and caretaking, that keep you from bringing more Spirit-led presence into your work.
When we know ourselves deeply and are honest before God, growth and healing multiply. In this course, you'll learn how to use concepts from the Enneagram and the Internal Family Systems model together to accelerate growth in yourself and in clients. (Completion of the "Expand" course is a prerequisite.)
