days until our next cohort

A 12-week sacred group program helping women gently and compassionately build relationships with the nuanced realms of the unconscious through shadow work, active dialogue, and dream tending to heal and integrate patterns that are making them suffer.




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.

Does this sound like you?

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

  • I assumed that to be successful, I had to be sharp, quick, and logical and now 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.

  • I have gotten things done through logic and efficiency, but I have sacrificed my health, my desires, my intuition, and the trust in myself.

  • 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?


If you answered yes to ANY of the above, this course offers you the restoration, ease, and life force you’ve been searching for for years.


  • 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?

Did you answered resonate to ANY of the above, if so, Born to Heal is for you!


"It is a blessing to know a free woman.

Sometimes she will stop by and hold up a mirror for you.

She will help you remember who you are." 

-Glennon Doyle

Ladies...let's face it

The perception of the feminine in our culture has often been portrayed as unfocused, unpredictable, and too emotional.


So... we seek success in the masculine oriented world by doing more.

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

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

We see ourselves doing it.

We are becoming successful, we're climbing the ladder, we get the degrees or the positions and

we feel POWERFUL...until we don't anymore.

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

We have the job, the kids, the "life" we thought we've always dreamed of and we may be asking ourselves,

"Okay, I've arrived, so what's next?"

We  begin to feel unworthy of anything outside our material success or our achievements.

We don't know how to stop, or say no.

Also, the guilt we feel from letting others down is gut wrenching. 

But these patterns of overdoing,  striving,  and perfectionism have given us an impending feeling of doom and now anxiety has crept up behind us and feels like a massive shadow looming over us at all times.

We ask ourselves,

"What is this all for?

I've achieved everything I set out to achieve and I feel absolutely empty. 

Why do I feel so lonely?

Why do I feel betrayed?


We have gotten things done through logic and efficiency, but we have

sacrificed our health, our desires, our intuition, and the trust in ourselves. 

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

I'm here to tell you...



"Change is frightening, but where there is fear, there is power.

If we learn to feel our fear without letting it stop us, fear becomes our ally, a sign to tell us that something is not in the things that represent what is familiar, comfortable, or positive. But in our fear, and even in our resistance to change,

is where an initiation process begins."- Maureen Murdock


Born to Heal

The 12 week program that guides your heroine's journey.

We navigate through unlearning your adaptive patterns and behaviors from childhood, while sprinkling on compassion and grace as we relearn how to create and embody a new self honoring story for your life through an adult lens.

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.

It’s all about learning to become aware of and accept all of these parts of yourself. 

Here's how we will do it :

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.

Soon, you will be sending me videos like these ladies...

The Story of the Wounded Healer


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 this course 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.

"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."

Meet your guide...


 Hi friends, I'm Danielle. I'm a Doctor of Physical Therapy turned integrative embodiment coach. 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.

It wasn't until I 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 I have dedicated myself to 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.

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 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. 

Like I mentioned above, this path is a path you're going to be walking the rest of your life, it seems to me that we shouldn't be at odds with ourselves for the remainder of our time here.
After leaving physical therapy to pursue my true path, I have been working with individuals from all walks of life to becoming more embodied representations of the humans they truly want to be.

And I can't wait for YOU to be one of them!
