A Virtual Workshop for Perfectionists Seeking Self-Acceptance

Perfectionism, or the fear of making mistakes, is in the blood of many brilliant, purposeful, and creative people. But, the research on perfectionism doesn’t lie: It’s giving us depression, more anxiety, and it’s causing our performance to suffer. It’s time to create a new story for yourself.

Who would you look like if you took more impactful risks + were less afraid of making mistakes?

Who would you look like if the belonging + validation you needed came from the inside?

Who would you look like if you offered yourself the same grace + compassionyou offer others in the face of mistakes?
