Imagine for a moment, sister…

What would it be like if you had a road map for how to live, love, lead, work & thrive in a way that allows you to shine your light in the world from a place of wholeness, ease & grace vs. the hard work, effort & force you’ve been used to?!!

And what if you could develop the superpowers that help you heal your shadow & nurture your sunshine in every area of your life?

You might be doubting if this is possible, especially if you’re not exactly where you want to be in life on your own despite all the hard work, effort & force you’ve probably been operating from over the years in order to be successful, prove your value & worth or make a difference in the world.

The good news is that being a woman of impact, influence & success doesn’t mean you don’t have to continue the hustle & grind that’s gotten you where you are today anymore!

In fact, there’s actually a brave-hearted way to thrive in life that doesn’t involve sacrificing or abandoning your soul, sanity or health & it all starts with identifying what the personalized self-rescue compass & road map is that will empower you to rescue yourself & then aligning to that new vision of impact, influence & success through your actions, words & deeds.

In a nutshell, this is what I call mastering the art of self-rescue!

With your own unique self-rescue compass & road map in place, you will be able to exponentially thrive in all areas of your life from a place of power, ease & grace vs. the hard work, effort & force you’ve been used to.

Are You in Need of Self-Rescue?

So how do you know if you’re in need of self-rescue?

According to Ada Colhoun in an article on called The New Midlife Crisis“nearly 60 percent of women in their 40’s describe themselves as stressed out & more than 1 in 5 women are on antidepressants. An awful lot of these middle-aged women feel furious, overwhelmed & like the deck is stacked against them.”

Even Brené Brown’s article on The Midlife Unraveling shares that “the midlife unraveling is a series of painful nudges strung together by low-grade anxiety and depression, quiet desperation, and an insidious loss of control”.

Both of the above articles make it clear that women in particular struggle during midlife because their efforts to be of impact, influence & success in the world are actually causing them to sacrifice & abandon themselves in very toxic ways.

This is one of the reasons why I believe burnout has become the new midlife crisis!

To help you understand whether you’re in need of a self-rescue, it’s important to see where you are now by learning the symptoms, if left unchecked, could lead to burnout, breakdown or worse… a proverbial midlife crisis!

Does any of the following apply to you?

  • You often feel stressed & overwhelmed by all that you have to do.
  • You’re tired of over-giving to the point of self-sacrifice. 
  • You have a hard time focusing & staying on track with your projects & attention.
  • You often feel exhausted by trying to get everything done just “right”.
  • You’re experiencing physical or emotional discomfort in your body due to a lack of self-care.
  • You feel out of balance & deeply challenged by setbacks & mistakes.
  • You’re super hard on yourself & others to the point of sabotage.
  • You doubt your greatness despite having a powerful message or gift to share with the world.
  • You’re feeling misunderstood or unappreciated by people in your life.
  • You feel alone & unsupported with all that you have to do.
  • You’re struggling with anxiety or depression that leaves you feeling burned out & miserable at the end of the day.
  • You’re struggling with feelings of bitterness & resentment because there’s never enough time to take care of YOU.
  • You feel a deep-seated lack of fulfillment that sucks the radiance right out of your soul.
  • You’re experiencing physical & emotional degradation such as depression, anxiety, auto-immune disorders, cognitive dysfunction, organ breakdown, etc…

If any of the above is affecting you personally, it’s time to face that you might be in need of self-rescue, sister.

In fact, ignoring these symptoms will only make you feel worse about life & lead to even more struggle, stress & strife!

Aren’t you tired of being the victim to what life brings your way?

Wouldn’t you like to take back control of your life, save yourself & become your own hero?

You are not lazy, unmotivated, or stuck. After years of living your life in survival mode, you are exhausted. There is a difference.

If you’re ready to end the cycle of self-sabotage, self-sacrifice, & self-abandonment that has led you into burnout, stress & strife in the past and you’re ready to step into a brave-hearted way of living that truly fuels & excites you (vs. drains & depletes you), it means you’re ready, sister. :)

Range of Results

My time in Jess’s year long program has been so transformative! I’ve gone to over 20 counselors in my life but nothing has changed me internally like working with her has. I will be forever grateful.

Cara Madee

Jess is a master of self-care and knows intuitively how to create a safe, nurturing space for women to connect, open up and support each other.

The manner in which she facilitates is immersed in empathy, compassion and care…she knows how to work with and direct the flow so that women not only receive something of value for themselves but also feel heard, seen and empowered.

I highly recommend anything Jess creates for she truly knows what it means to care for herself and her fellow goddesses.

Mary Williams

I can’t thank Jess enough for the power she brought to my soul. I owe so much of my eyes being open, my rooted-ness, my alignment to her!

I was in and out of therapy, many a misdiagnosis, so much invalidation and dismissal that I really struggled to balance my life, constantly thinking something was wrong with me.

I moved from burned out, crying, and overwhelmed to being completely grounded within myself and thriving in my business. I would not be here if it wasn’t for her love, pulling me up and out of the wreckage of my own ego, frustration and patterns.

Through Jess’s work, I was able to break out of my own toxic cycles and get rooted into what I wanted, who I was and stand strong in my own life’s purpose.

Angela Kraft-Meldahl

At first, I was skeptical about whether working with Jess would really help because years of ineffective, half-assed therapy (both for myself and my family) left me feeling like I was not going to improve.

My anger, depression, perfectionism, etc. were constantly overwhelming. I felt stuck and did not have direction and I was struggling with what the “root” cause of my issue was.

Goodness, was I wrong!

The self-care work has scaffold-ed in such a way that each session builds from each other.

At first, I was a little hesitant about the “homework” between sessions, but Jess really understands what is necessary to push through the walls I built for myself.

I felt very little judgement as I explained how those were built and the ways it impacted my life. I felt accepted and embraced.

As a result of the healing work I did with Jess, I am also way more aware of my negative self-talk and behaviors.

When we first began, I did not believe that I deserved time to take care of myself and was resentful that others I cared for did not return the kindness, a core value of mine.

Since our work together, I realized that I am important to myself, which includes caring for my mental, physical, and spiritual well-being.

I feel tapped into my “higher self” and allow it to guide me now which helps me understand and cope with overwhelming emotions. I now allow myself to flow with them, recognizing it is a part of my growth.

Ultimately, I am now able to trust again; myself, others, and in the “universe”. The words sound so hollow when spoken or written, but it’s the feeling in the core of my heart that was missing that’s not easily explained. Thank you, Jess!
