BORN
TO HEAL

Are you finally ready to step into the meaningful, soulful existence that you are innately worthy of experiencing?

To NAME your patterns, behaviors, and negative self-talk that keep you small and INTEGRATE them with compassion and courage?

To move on from the toxic relationship dynamics, the excessive striving for success, the past hurts, and transition into your next chapter with confidence?

Let’s break through your unconscious patterns of self sabotage, self doubt, and self betrayal and create the lifelong compassionate relationship with your inner world that you've always dreamed of.

This is what we call a journey back to Self - empowered, connected, and thriving.

Ladies...let's face it

The perception of the feminine in our culture has often been portrayed as unpredictable, too emotional, and that in itself, is a weakness.

 

So, to make up for that, you’ve likely sought out success in the masculine-oriented world by DOING more.

Unconsciously, you want to dispel the myth and prove to the world that women do have brilliant minds, we can follow through, we are strong, and we can be emotionally AND financially independent. 

You choose mentors, careers, and relationships that validate your intellect, your sense of purpose, and your ambitions to feel a sense of security, direction, and success.

You see yourself doing it.

 

You have a family, you climb the ladder, you get the degrees or the job positions and you feel POWERFUL...until you don't anymore.

You may be asking yourself, "Okay, I've arrived. So, what's next?"

 

You get to the point where you focused so much on "doing" and now it feels like anything that is not "doing" holds no intrinsic value.

You  begin to feel unworthy of anything outside your material success or your achievements.

You don't know how to stop, or say no, and the guilt you feel from letting others down is gut-wrenching.

What's really happening here?

Right now, the ideas of success & achievement you thought to be true have only left you empty.

You wonder...

 

Why have your patterns of overdoing, striving, and perfectionism given you an impending feeling of doom?

 

Now that anxiety has crept up on you, why does it feel like you have a massive shadow of heaviness looming over you at all times?

Maybe you're asking...

"What is this all for? I've achieved everything I set out to achieve and I feel absolutely empty. Why?"

"I assumed that to be successful, I had to be sharp, quick, and logical and why do I feel like there is an emptiness in my heart?"

 

"​I misjudged the decision to play the game of life by everyone else's rules and I have deeply disregarded my own needs.

What do I need?"

 

"​I have gotten things done through logic and efficiency, but I have sacrificed my health, my desires, my intuition, and the trust in myself. How do I reclaim this?"​

 

"When I look inside myself, I do not know who is there and a deep feeling of isolation sets in."

 

"Why do I feel so lonely? Why do I feel betrayed? WHO AM I?"

You have gotten things done through logic and efficiency, but you sacrificed your health, your desires, your intuition, and the trust in yourself to get there.

This feeling is a realization that we have become disconnected from our feminine nature.

 

If any of this is sounding familiar, I'm here to tell you...

THESE ARE THE SEEDS OF YOUR RECLAMATION.

You KNOW the way you’re living isn’t working, but you’re also unsure how to actually let go of the things that keep you stuck in “striving mode” and feeling unworthy:

  • All of my perfectionists out there who KNOW the perfectionism is keeping you stuck and small.

  • Those of you who have a  poor relationship with your body.

  • All the self saboteurs who are sabotaging opportunities of joy and abundance for yourself.​

  • Those who have an AGGRESSIVE and out of control inner tyrant and inner judge that criticizes every decision you make.

  • Those of you with porous boundaries who struggle to maintain a sense of self while in relationship with others.

  • People pleasers, aren't you exhausted of carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders?

  • The ruminators, who spend hours upon hours reading books and listening to podcasts but still feel stuck in your wounds​.

  • Codependents who cannot distinguish between what’s “your shit” and what is “someone else’s shit.”​

  • The past and future thinkers, are you are stuck in the wounds of your past or so worried about the future that you are overwhelmed with the present moment?​

Whichever you identify with, I have good news for you:
The breakthrough and journey back to Self is not something you have to figure out alone.

The Story of the Wounded Healer

Danielle-9489.jpg

I 100% know what it feels like to feel like a victim to life. I know what it feels like to be living a life that feels cyclical, soulless, and self-sacrificing. 

The way I tried to cope with my inability to access and look at my feelings was with over exercising and an undiagnosed form of body dysmorphia.

 

I was a victim of an Inner Tyrant. 

 

A part of myself was deemed lazy and unworthy if I wasn't performing.

But underneath all of those negative coping mechanisms was just a version of myself that was:

  • wanting to be listened to

  • wanting to express her feelings, and

  • wanting to be acknowledged for who she was, without a mask of perfection

The content in Born to Heal is the material I implemented throughout my personal heroine's journey. 

It includes tools and skills to access your feelings and emotions, access and dialogue with the inner child, integrate forms of compassion, grace, and acceptance, as well as practices for embodied learning.

This transformation into the best, truest version of yourself will be deep and go far beyond our 12 weeks together.

Here’s the truth:

This work it takes to reach the restoration, ease, and life force you desire requires active faith, courage, and a whole lot of honesty with yourself. 

 

It requires reframing your thoughts, uncovering your emotions and feelings, and learning what self-compassion truly looks like.

But the work is worth it to...

  • Heal childhood wounds and developmental trauma

  • Express yourself authentically.

  • Learn how to speak up, take up space and express and communicate needs.

  • Give yourself permission to be an empowered woman that understands her innate worthiness.

  • Making the transition from surviving to thriving, and letting go of roles that no longer serve you.

  • Learn how to establish and communicate healthy boundaries.

  • Connect to your inner critic and learn how to be more kind and compassionate to yourself.

  • Nurture and create space for your sensitive inner child.

  • Find safety in your mind, heart, home, and relationships.

“If you've been feeling like you've run out of energy, if you're feeling unfulfilled and like others are constantly draining you, this course will teach you how to have a better relationship with yourself and gain confidence and understanding around why you're doing what you're doing. Then you're given the tools and the choice to change the way you've been operating. It's absolutely worth it and it will change your outlook on life regardless no matter what level of experience you have with doing inner work.”-

INTRODUCING...
Born to Heal

The 12-week program that guides you through unlearning your adaptive patterns and behaviors from childhood, as we relearn how to create and embody a new self-honoring story for your life through an adult lens - compassionate and full of grace.

 

What if I told you that you are a complex being made up of many parts?

You have parts that desire perfection, you have parts that are bitchy, you have parts of you that are lovable...there is so much to you and your being.

We will gently and compassionately build relationships with the nuanced realms of the unconscious through approaches called shadow work, active dialogue, and dream tending. Collectively, this will help you become aware of and accept all parts of yourself, as well as heal from patterns that cause you to suffer.

Here's how it works:

 

1.  We will methodically NAME your self-sabotaging patterns of behavior.

2.  We will compassionately CONNECT and integrate them into your everyday life.

3.  We will EMBODY. We learn to experience life as the versions of ourselves that we truly desire.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

"I have learned how to reframe my thought processes and get curious as to why I am feeling/reacting/reaching for comfort and support the way that I do.

Getting the permission to put myself first to uncover what it is that I need when I get reactive or, sometimes, disengage, has been beyond helpful!

Thank you Danielle for offering the space to work through this hard thought provoking material."

Born to Heal is for the woman who’s saying, “NO MORE”

NO MORE RUNNING FROM MY PAIN

NO MORE STRIVING FOR VALIDATION

NO MORE IGNORING REALITY

NO MORE MEANINGLESS B.S. PURSUITS

 

And I’m here to guide you to that freedom

Danielle-9529.jpg

Hi friends, I'm Danielle

Doctor of Physical Therapy turned integrative embodiment coach and I dedicate my life to mirroring, guiding, and walking individuals back to a life that is reflective of his or her soul's path.

 

I spent most of my life suppressing/repressing my needs, desires, and true passions for things and systems outside of myself. I got the degree and felt unfulfilled. 

I had the relationship, again, unfulfilled. Had the following, still unfulfilled.

Then, I finally realized that until I stopped searching outside of myself, I would never feel a sense of fulfillment. 

 

After a dark night of the soul, my previous business collapsing, and attaining a doctoral degree that left me feeling lifeless, I decided it was time to walk myself home.

 

The last few years of my life have surrounded unlearning what isn't mine, integrating what is, and stepping towards the life I desire. Healing, to me, is about actively addressing your life with an "eyes open" compassionate approach.

 

It requires grace, surrender, acceptance, responsibility, devotion, and a true desire to change.

 

I have taken the steps thus far to walk towards and embody the life that represents more ease, more grace, and more connectedness to all of humanity. 

 

After leaving physical therapy to pursue my true path, I have been working with individuals from all walks of life to become more embodied representations of the humans they truly want to be.

 

This isn't about rejecting the parts of you that you hate, it is about loving all of you and allowing more space for you to exist. It's about a more unconditional presence for yourself.

 

I can't wait for YOU to be one of these individuals I work with next.
