The Joy Effect

The world thinks you have your sh*t together. The truth is you’re exhausted, overwhelmed, irritable, and scared.

At night, you try to fall asleep, but your mind won’t stop racing about all the what-ifs.


"Do you worry about what friends would think if they knew what your life was truly like?"

You don’t want to be mean, so you end up saying yes to more than you have time (or energy) for because you feel mean saying “no,” especially if you don’t have a good excuse.

You’re here because if you try to keep all the plates spinning at this rate, something is going to have to give, and you’re worried that something will be you.

My job is to help you feel less anxious about all the what-ifs and more connected, present, and able to actually enjoy the successful life you’ve work so hard to create for yourself.
