The Connection Lab

A 4-week boundaries, burnout and consent group coaching program for therapists, healers/givers, peer counselors, consultants and organizers. 
Parts of you may find this program valuable if you:
  • feel burned out 
  • feel disconnected from your body’s yes and no
  • are not in touch with your needs, wants and/or desires

  • have a complicated relationship with people pleasing, conflict avoidance, or feeling responsible for others’ feelings
  • grew up in a context or have been in relationships where boundaries weren’t acknowledged
  • have learned that consent was about no means no

  • you’ll learn body based techniques and other practice exercises to support your nervous system and the nervous systems of others
  • you’ll build a toolbox to help support you in navigating your day to day
