Emily Whyte Rubin
Heather Shaughnessy-Cato

We are pleased to help individuals and groups learn and apply skills to:

  • Develop or strengthen a practice of self-compassion and mindfulness
  • Soften self-criticism
  • Discover what is truly replenishing for you
  • Reflect on and articulate your priorities, values, and goals
  • Validate and acknowledge your own needs
  • Learn to titrate how much you “take in” from the world around you
  • Set boundaries with others and within yourself
  • Work with difficult emotions
  • Feel at home in your own feelings and your own body

Self-Compassion for Teams and Organizations

Feel more empowered in your approach to day-to-day demands, foster a greater sense of authentic connection within your team or organization, and build a more genuine culture of compassion. 

Coaching for the Sensitive Person

Take dedicated time and space just for you to be seen and heard, and engage with a range of healing practices for greater self-knowing and flourishing. We specialize in working with those who identify as sensitive.

Be kinder to yourself and then
let your kindness flood the world.
