Are you tired of being a high achiever who can’t take time off to rest? Are you sick of being a people pleaser who has to sacrifice your own needs to make others happy? Are you done with telling yourself that you are never good enough? I get it. You deserve to live the life you want - happiness, love & connection, purpose & meaning. Maybe you think this is impossible, since right now you are depressed and anxious, lost and purposeless, and have unfulfilled relationships & jobs. You have tried to work things through on your own with little success and you are exhausted. It's not your fault! It’s the result of Negative Life Events.

Our emotions tell a story, they direct our actions. But unless we are aware of how they influence what we do, they can often get in the way. Lou invites you to listen not only to the story that comes from your head, but also to what your body has to say. Developing greater awareness of your emotional experience and the skills to manage it can be the springboard to creating healthier relationships with self and others, and lead to a more productive life.
