The Empowered Women's Circle

 Registration is now closed for the summer season 

An online membership community for women
yearning to
connect inwards and step into
a more fulfilled personal & professional life

If you're feeling a deep sense of urgency to
shake things up,
shift priorities,
deepen into personal fulfillment
and experience more joy
—we invite you to keep reading.

Women are balancing so much right now...

We are the center of our families.

We are working towards or at the height of our professional careers.

We are holding the 'bigness' of what's going on in the world.


The added stress (and excitement) of life post-pandemic makes holding balance, positivity and possibility even more challenging, yet more crucial, than ever before.

Not sure how to move forward?

If you're like so many women, you're struggling.

You may be feeling:

  • tired and overwhelmed

  • alone and isolated

  • disconnected from yourself

  • like there is more out there for you

  • stuck & uncertain about what's next

  • a desire for life-positive transformation

The Empowered Women's Circle is here to help.

You don't have to do it alone

Make this stage of your life full of growth, surrounded by a community of supportive women on a similar journey and guided by experienced, compassionate facilitators.

Imagine having a physician, life coach,

mind-body wellness experts and a sisterhood of women as your personal support team.

The Empowered Women's Circle

The Empowered Women's Circle is a curated coaching & learning community dedicated to supporting women on their journey to strengthen & transform emotional & physical health and well-being, so that they can rise into, and show up in the world as the best version of themselves.

The EWC has been designed with care and expertise to be the ideal “container” for women to grow into their potential more quickly, with more ease and joy along the way.

This community is a safe place to practice going deep and having honest conversations with yourself and others about what you desire to have in your life. It all starts here, with your yearning—so you can be creating your life from the inside out. 

As you lean into your journey & develop self-identified personal intentions, you receive the guidance of knowledgeable leadership & community support.

The membership is a mix of virtual group coaching sessions, online learning content, and guided progress toward personal fulfillment. No matter how much time you can give or where you happen to be in your process, the EWC provides a potent combination of structure & flexibility that will serve your up-leveling toward a nourished soul, stronger body and resilient mind.
