Shift Panic into Purpose may be isolated, but you're not alone....

Back In February, you could give hugs & high-fives...

But now, maybe it feels absolutely crazy, frightening & eerily similar to that (zombie) apocalypse you kept joking about before....

To protect yourself & your loved ones, you're doing your best to follow physical distancing / social distancing & isolation guidelines.

Whether you're home alone, stuck with 5 kids & a grumpy partner (whom you love!), or if you're one of our incredible healthcare workers putting yourselves on the frontline everyday (thank you!)...

Perhaps it just feels overwhelming, and all this crazy stress, anxiety, fear, sadness & loneliness just can't be Netflix-ed  away......I get how tough this is, even if your context is specific to you...

That's why I've decided to offer you THREE online counselling (or coaching) sessions for pro-bono (free), or by donation.*

If you're an ESSENTIAL or HEALTHCARE Worker*, I'm glad to offer you FIVE online counselling/coaching sessions pro-bono or by donation. 

Keep Scrolling to find out more.

*All donated proceeds will support charities providing critical healthcare in response to covid-19.

**Essential workers include: Grocery store staff, those keeping my lights & Internet on, those serving the homeless or other vulnerable populations, & more (ask me).

Healthcare workers: Doctors, nurses, medical researchers, lab techs, hospital staff & those on the frontlines we cheer daily.


for Free or by Donation, Work with us to...

Make sense of your fear & uncertainty... 

and just feel free to just express how crazy, scary, uncertain, & bizarre this (zombie) apocalypse feels..


Add meaning in this bizarre new world...

for your life today, tomorrow, how you face the upcoming weeks, & long after the apocalypse is over... 

Feel more connected, calm & cool like a cat.

Or, if you're a dog person, then imagine how relaxed & loved your best friend is there...
Then feel a bit more like that.  🙂
