The 'striving years' are about working hard to build the life that you planned for. You've been going along the 'right' path and yet you're asking yourself, "Why don't I feel at ease?" "Why am I so worried, filled with self doubt?" You might imagine, "Maybe things could be there another way?"

This is what we'll be digging into...

mindfulness, orienting to the good, gratitude, connection, self-compassion and optimism

These are skills that anyone can learn, with practice, and like any exercise when you practice you see results. For creating new habits the truth of it is, practice makes permanence. As individuals we have our typical defaults that are automatic because our brains love predictability and patterns (that is why it is so hard to do something new). What we are looking to do is create new pathways in our fabulous, malleable brain. For example meditation not only helps in the moment, but cumulatively over time it changes how the brain functions. The result is that we start to live our day to day experience mindfully, as opposed to spinning between the past and the future and not being able to enjoy the present moment.


Maybe you have some questions I can help you answer.

  • What is the structure of the course?

    The course has an overview and then 6 steps covering the topics of Mindfulness, Orienting to the Good, Gratitude, Connection, Self-Compassion and Optimism. Each step will have an educational powerpoint narrated by myself. And then there are action steps (aka homework) for you to engage in, which may be things like reading articles and an active practice like mindfulness and responding to thoughts/ideas in the discussion forum-to connect to other course participants. Practice makes permanence!

  • When are the Q&A/coaching calls?

    The weekly group coaching calls will be on Wednesdays from 12p-1p EST each week while the course is running and will address questions you might have, places where you might get stuck, and tips to help you be successful.

  • How much time do I need to commit to this?

    Well, I've learned that pretty much in life the more you dedicate time to something you want to learn, the more positive the result, right? There are three different formats: course alone, course with a Facebook group, and finally an option to add weekly group coaching calls. You choose what's best for how you learn.

  • What are the payment options?

    The three different formats of the course have different price points. For the course and the course with FB group, it's a one time payment. For the course with FB and group coaching, there is the option to pay in three installments. Payment can be made with debit, credit, or PayPal after you sign up.

  • Do you give discounts?

    Recognizing this pandemic year and systematic inequities, I give a 20% discount to individuals who have lost a significant portion of their income and people who Identify as Indigenous, Black and a person of color. Please email me.

  • I have another question... Is there a way I can get in touch with you?

    No problem! You can email me your question, or we can talk on the phone and I'll answer any questions you have about the course, so you can get a good feel if this is the right fit for you.

What satisfied women have to say about Elizabeth's work:

"You helped me change my life and see a version of myself that I wasn't sure existed. You held the space I needed to find answers that were buried way deep down within me, and the courage to bring them to the light. " -Andi

Truly Grateful

by Jamie

"Thank you! I'm truly grateful for this group-your guidance, everyone's sharing, our acceptance and support of being human and living our lives the best we can".

Skepticism Gone...


"I was kind of skeptical starting out. I had never done a group of any kind before, but this was one of the most positive and therapeutic experiences I have ever had. I'm sad to see it end, and I'm extremely grateful. Thank you so very much".

Structure and Compassion


"Thank you for introducing me to these remarkable women! I enjoyed the structure and compassion that this provided. I am also thankful that this is a welcoming environment to learn in".
