Patriarchy Stress Disorder Part 1: The Missing Link to Women’s Ultimate Success and Happiness

You’ve been working so hard and achieved so much.

And yet somehow you still feel like you’re failing.

Failing at playing big, fully stepping into your power, and manifesting unlimited financial abundance.

Failing at creating a deeply fulfilling relationship, failing at motherhood, failing at reaching your goal weight, optimal physical health and mindset, mental and emotional freedom.

Sometimes it feels like you’re at war with your body and mind, at war with yourself, and you just can’t win.

Before you reach for another self-help book or enroll in one more personal development course, let me tell you that

it’s not your fault.

There’s a missing link to women’s ultimate happiness and success that therapists, counselors, coaches, spiritual leaders, personal growth programs, and self-help books don’t talk about.

In my well over 20,000 hours of practice as a therapist, I’ve seen this missing link at play in every woman—unrelenting yet unrecognized. With such overwhelming evidence, I realized that I had discovered a legitimate condition—an expression of the intergenerational trauma of 1000s of years of oppression of women by the patriarchal culture imprinted in our minds, bodies, our nervous systems, our DNA. A condition that deeply and profoundly affects our thoughts and emotions, choices and behaviors and holds us back from claiming our ultimate happiness and success.

I named this condition


Today, I’m excited to share with you my cutting edge discovery in this audio training—Part 1 of a series of audio trainings I’ll be releasing on this topic weekly.
