it's time to build your brain as intentionally as you build your muscles

If you're feeling like...

  • You’re ready to make some changes in your life… but none of the approaches you’ve tried seem to work. 
  • You know exactly what you’re SUPPOSED to do (or even want to do)… but the day to day practice of actually doing it is a struggle. 
  • You’re bored and tired of the harsh, discipline-focused, “just do it” approach to improvement… and you are willing to try something new and fresh.
  • You’re ready to hear what the evidence has to say about behavior change… but hours squinting at abstracts on google scholar isn’t your cup of tea.

and you get excited about...

 

Tools & techniques you can actually use

(that have actually been researched by REAL behavior scientists)

Becoming a new version of you…

(in a way that feels neutral, curious, compassionate and fun)

A monthly self-care date with yourself…

(dedicated to getting a little bit better at the skill of changing)

Learning cool new science shit…

(like empowering and evidence-based practices for personal evolution)

here's my pitch:

I think 95% of what’s out there on how to change is complete and utter bullshit. I think it’s toxic. It’s not evidence-based. AND, it’s wrong!

The stories you hear about how to “boost your willpower” or how “simple” your habits can be with the right “tiny” formula or how within just X number of days, you can totally build that discipline you “desperately need” and become mentally tough…

ARE BULLSHIT.

I’m on a mission to help you pursue your big, impossible dreams for the person you want to be…from a place of love, and acceptance, and compassion.. and with a realistic understanding of what we can expect from ourselves as HUMAN BEINGS with real squishy brains, not lifeless productivity robots engineered by capitalism.

It might be rare, or even unheard of — but it is possible.

Compassion-first change.

Introducing...

Change Academy

Each month in Change Academy, you’ll get access to a LIVE, 1-hour workshop on a specific topic related to behavior change and personal development.

We also have a LIVE online community where we host accountability events, challenges, and YOU can get advice & feedback from REAL behavior change coaches.

Each training will...

  • Be focused on a specific, empowering topic related to change or personal development.
  • Include insights from the latest research in psychology, education, and health behavior change.
  • Come with a PDF resource that guides you through the process of actually IMPLEMENTING what you learned into your life.
  • Be recorded and available to you after the workshop, so you can revisit it as often as you’d like.

this month's workshop is...
how to Cultivate Self-Compassion

Here’s what you will be learning:

  • What self compassion REALLY is, and the difference between self-compassion and “letting yourself off the hook.”
  • How to use self-compassion as a tool to be more consistent (or, as we like to say around here, frequent!) 
  • The three evidence-based components of self-compassion, and how to leverage each of them to change your behavior. 
  • How to implement FIVE different evidence-based self-compassion interventions when that critical voice pops up in your brain.

Three Promises

Evidence

The shit we’re covering in each workshop isn’t some random idea I came up with in the shower… it’s evidence-based practice. What does that mean? It means we’ll combine scientific research, my years of experience coaching actual humans on change, and YOUR personal perspective to create a plan & approach that works for YOU.

Application

If there’s one thing I hate in the world of behavior change, it’s procrasti-learning. We can absorb ALL the information on behavior change that exists in the universe, but it does us absolutely no good until we take action. That’s why each workshop will come with strategic action steps and a game-planning component, so you walk away knowing exactly what to DO with the fun stuff you learned.

Perspective

I am going to ask you hard questions in these workshops. I am going to push your buttons. I am going to call you out and I am going to make you think. It will not always be comfortable. In fact, my goal is that most of the time, you feel a little uncomfortable or challenged by what we discuss. Fair warning – change comes from a shift in perspective.
