Overwhelm Detox

Your Jumpstart to a More Manageable Daily Life

There are few feelings worse than knowing that you need to slow down but being completely unable to.

And yet, that’s the stuck feeling you get over and over again, living at a pace that is not sustainable and not knowing how to fix it.

When you value taking care of others and making the world a better place (how could you not?), your obligations and desire to help often override your need to take care of yourself. You can’t have a robust self-care practice and tend to your friends, family, and work. It just doesn’t seem possible.

In your life right now:

  • You spend your days caring for others and doing your best to contribute positively to society, but you are exhausted by the demands of it all.

  • You value quality time with friends, family, and community, but you regularly feel conflicted and pulled between your commitments and desires.

  • You care about your mental and physical health and do your best to prioritize it, but every self-care plan eventually fades as your other commitments take over.

If you keep going like this, there will always be a level of burnout underlying everything you do, taking away from your capacity to live joyfully and mindfully. You’re simply too tired and it’s not going away.

You need a shift in perspective if you’re going to find a way out.

You know you won’t get enough support from just another self-help book or blog.

You want to do things differently and you want it to stick.

I know what it’s like to feel like there’s no way out. That stuck feeling used to be my most frequent companion. And it’s hard to see another possibility when you’re right in the middle of it. I get it.

But after years of struggling with never finding enough time in the day, always worrying about everyone else instead of myself, and keeping “no” out of my dictionary altogether, I did find another way. By looking at my obligations and commitments through the lens of my values, by understanding why I cared about what I cared about and finding ways to make healthy choices with those values in mind, I slowly started to shift my way of being.

So I created Overwhelm Detox to give you that jump-start into finding time and energy for you.

After our time together, you will:

  • Feel empowered to move away from exhaustion and toward a more sustainable and content day-to-day life.

  • Be clear on what your commitments mean to you (the deeper why of that push and pull you always feel), what you really can’t do without, and what you can say goodbye to.

  • Walk away with clarity around your needs and a sustainable action plan for getting them met.

The Program

Overwhelm Detox is a bite-sized coaching program to help you get unstuck and discover the real possibility of being able to take better care of yourself.

Here’s what it includes:

  • An initial 75-minute, one-on-one life coaching sessions (by phone) to give you the initial shift and support you need to try things differently.

  • A pre-session reflection questionnaire to help you clarify what you want and need so you can get the most out of our time together.

  • One month of unlimited email support as you work on your action plan.

  • A final 40-minute follow up session (one month later) to check in on your progress, adjust your plans, and give you an extra boost of clarity and encouragement.

The Overwhelm Detox package costs $190 $170.

It’s a chance to take stock of your daily life, understand how your commitments and your values relate to one another, and take tangible steps toward more balance and ease. This paradigm shift will help you see things differently and open the door to being able to make lifestyle changes that will work for you.

Before working with Gabriella, my life was a bit all over the place. I’d talk myself out of doing things I wanted to be doing and force myself into doing things I felt obligated to do instead. I would often commit too much to other people before taking care of myself. I felt guilty and conflicted. But I also liked the fullness of my social life and didn’t want to restructure my life too much or limit myself.

From the beginning, Gabriella understood where I was coming from and was open-minded and creative coming up with solutions that would work for me. I discovered my own ways of aligning my commitments, my self-care, and my support system with my values. Framing my priorities in that way has been a major shift.

Because of our work together, I’m now able to be flexible with myself when I’m trying to improve my situation and if one thing doesn’t work, I can try something new. Gabriella is awesome - mindful, knowledgeable, creative and caring.

About Me

I help people who have built their lives around taking care of others to take care of themselves. I show them how to sort through the noise of their competing priorities to figure out what is important to them, how to have a healthier relationship with time and time management, and how to stop feeling guilty so they can finally create the intentional life they deserve. I have been working in interpersonal relations and personal development since 2011, using applied theatre, facilitation, and life coaching to help thoughtful and compassionate people make change in their lives. I live in Wayland, MA with her husband, Louis, and thrive on performing in community theatre, creating amateur pottery, and jumping in the ocean . Read more of my story here.
