Tags: ,

Hi, I’m Alex!

If you need a little help to start playing by your own rules, there’s a few ways we can work together more closely.




Have you ever heard yourself saying: “I’m kinda clear about what I want, but I keep getting in my own way.” Or “I’m not sure what I want…” Or even “I don’t know how I feel- I’m just confused.”? Well, today, Alex talks about the lack of clarity, the confusion and the self-sabotage that all women seem to experience. She attributes this to the fact that we, as women, have all been trained to minimize our thoughts, emotions and even our strengths and talents. Alex points out that we have shut ourselves down, in so many ways and for such a long time, that we have become completely out of practice with connecting with what is true and good. We’re so disconnected that even our ability to create what we want and feel the way we’d like to feel has become severely damaged! Our ability to stop harming ourselves with negative thinking or bad eating habits has also been affected because it’s all connected! Listen in to find out more.

Alex hears this, almost daily, from clients and friends and she’s definitely experienced this for herself, throughout her life. Listen in today, as Alex gives you some ways to overcome your habit of minimizing your dreams, desires and even your truth!
