Becoming a Cycle Breaker:

 A Coaching Group for Women Ready to Make Change

Dear Wise Woman,


Most likely, you have "Cycle Breaker" energy within you. I say that because you have landed on this site and are clearly interested in improving your life as a woman, daughter, and/or mother.

So what exactly is a Cycle Breaker?

A Cycle Breaker is a woman who wants to change the way things are for herself and future generations.


In my work with women I have the privilege of exploring a person’s lineage starting from the mother line, and then expanding into other maternal connections, such as grandmothers on father's side and mother-in-law. Together we uncover common patterns and themes that have been handed down from generation to generation of women. Of course good things get passed down, but it’s not the good cycles that bring women to work with me. It’s the painful, often unspoken, patterns that get passed down and have negative consequences for women.


These cycles contribute to:

feeling shame for speaking up for yourself, or not knowing how

guilt for asking for what you want, or even need

challenging mother-daughter relationships, feeling unheard or unseen by the other

feeling the need to always be of service to family, friends, and community to your own detriment 

inadvertently shaming other women, including daughters

feeling the need to stay small to maintain approval

not really know what you want from life, or feeling lost

finding relationships that are never fully supportive  

…the list goes on. 

Cycle Breakers are women who yearn to change these things within themselves, and and in a larger capacity, for anyone in their influence. Becoming a Cycle Breaker means understanding the women of your past with compassion and actively choosing to break cycles to create a new life for yourself moving forward.

When we do the work of being a Cycle Breaker, we first must cultivate a larger perspective. This gives us compassion toward those women who have come before us. We can understand why a grandmother may be jealous of her daughter or granddaughter. We can understand why we were encouraged to “not make waves” and to just “be nice.” We can come to understand why we were discouraged from being our authentic selves when we can see the unlived lives of the women in our lineage. Once we have this awareness, we can then begin to shift and pave our path forward. 

Sometimes we inherit heirlooms from previous generations that we really don't want, but feel guilty getting rid of because it was great grandma’s, or because every generation had it in their home. Letting go of the emotional burdens and harmful values that you inherited as a woman is like being willing to say, "no thanks, this heirloom of guilt and shame doesn’t coordinate with my peace of mind and my heart. I don’t need to keep this anymore."


Being a cycle breaker means carving out a new way and taking care of yourself in a way that may cause you to step outside of your familiar zone. This means becoming both compassionate, gentle and courageous with yourself. In a way, it feels like finally coming home to your most authentic self.

Becoming a Cycle Breaker is about understanding the past, taking care of YOU in the present, and moving forward in a new way--one that is unburdened by intergenerational patterns and societal expectations that have been unsupportive for women.


If now feels like the time to finally step into your role as a cycle breaker, I invite you into this circle.

Come be in the company of women of all ages and stages and create a community that enriches one another through shared wisdom, courage, and compassion. Cycle breakers are women who are ready enough to step into new patterns in their lives that are designed to enhance quality of life. Each woman draws upon the collective wholeness and vitality of the group to help her move towards her goals and vision. This coaching group invites each woman to step into the life they truly want.  


By surrounding yourself with women who encourage and want you to feel unburdened by your past, you will find the courage to make changes and recognize that new life can unfold for you.

In this group, we will:

Have weekly gatherings facilitated by myself, Emily, in community with other women who seek connection and change.

Discover the common themes that have passed down through generations of women in your lineage. 

Understand how these patterns have been active in your life by recognizing the limiting beliefs you carry. 

Gain resources and empowerment to feel you can make changes in your life despite old habits and fears.

Have support from other women who are on the same journey, benefiting from the wisdom of women in various life stages. 

Identify changes you want to make in your life to put yourself on a new trajectory.

Have accountability for the goals you set for yourself.

Take steps toward a life that feels more supportive, empowered and authentic, with the confidence and clarity to follow through.

Think you may want to join, but aren't sure?

Logistical Details:

This group will run for 8 weeks starting on March 29th, running every Friday from 1pm-2:30pm Eastern Standard Time until May 17th.

This group is virtual and will be held via zoom.

Please note: this group is best for individuals who have done some previous therapy and for those who are not currently in a crisis, active addiction or experiencing acute mental health issues. 

My hope is for every woman to finally break free of any oppressive societal and familial cycles that stop us from being our authentic selves. When we break the chain and create a new pattern, we not only create a better life for ourself, but the women who will come after us. I hope you will join us on this journey.

Much love,
