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.

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.

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 2-month 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:

  • Four 50-minute life coaching sessions (by phone) over the course of 2 months. Each session will help you shift perspective and take action to make the changes you want to see.

  • Pre-session reflection questionnaires so you can clarify what you want and need and get the most out of our time together.

  • Text support between sessions so you have a cheerleader and coach in your pocket as you work on your action plan.

The Overwhelm Detox package costs $410*.

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.

If you’re ready to try something new, I’m ready to show you how.

Book now or schedule a free consult so we can discuss further.

*Financial accessibility of my services is important to me. You can pay for Overwhelm Detox in full, with a two-month payment plan ($210/month), or a 3-month payment plan ($140/month). Please schedule a consult if you have any concerns.


A couple of months ago, I was really anxious about everything on my to do list and I was overthinking everything. I had never worked with a life coach before, so I was not sure what to expect from working with Gabriella and I was uncertain about getting coached through the phone.
I have to say that the phone sessions were effective and definitely helped shift my thinking!

Obviously this is ongoing work, but I am impressed by how much I achieved with Overwhelm Detox. I have been able to be more gentle and patient with myself. I am not as demanding. I have not hesitated as much to ask for time off in order to get the rest I need. I feel close to really believing it when I say “I have done my best” or “ I will do my best” and believe is really enough.

I really enjoyed Gabriella’s questions during our coaching sessions and I also liked sharing my progress in between sessions by text and email.

Gabriella, you are awesome and patient, and flexible! Thank you!

Talking with Gabriella was the best part of the program - she listens and is present and is willing to both lead and follow. I recommend her to anyone needing a calm, interested, non-judgmental voice to offer the “committee in your head” something new and kind and possible!

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 my husband, Louis, and thrive on performing in community theatre, creating amateur pottery, and jumping in the ocean . Read more of my story here.
