Welcome to Flourish

Want to change a habit?
Your mindset?
Your career?
You've come to the right place.
This is where women flourish.

We launched Flourish in January with a rejuvenating blend of reflection, action, and sweat – yes, sweat! This is a whole-body experience. Here is what you can expect:

Settling In: We’ll start by identifying what you are proud of and what gives you a deep sense of satisfaction.


Looking Back: You’ll review the last three months through a focused lens. I’ll help you identify what to keep, what to discard, and what to put on the back burner.

Looking Ahead: Now you’re ready to tackle the next three months. We’ll get very specific about action steps and how you will spend your time and energy.


Bring your sneakers. Now is the time we get up and move. Nothing too jarring and I can help you modify any move to ensure a safe and enjoyable sweat-and-inspiration session. You’ll end on your yoga mat with a delicious stretching and breathing section.

Conclusion: We’ll revisit your intentions and make commitments to each other.

The Keys to Success


Alice: “I just wanted to ask you which way I ought to go.” Cat: “That depends on where you want to get to.” Alice: “It doesn’t much matter.” Cat: “Then it doesn’t much matter which way you go.”

Realizing your definition of success requires a clear vision and the ability to articulate what success looks like. This program helps you move from ambiguous to amazing.


Success depends on believing you can, and when that is a struggle, being able to silence your inner critic.

Thanks to the work of Carol Dweck, we know that humans toggle between a fixed mindset (I have to be perfect or I’m a failure) and growth mindset (I’m willing to try and if I fail I am learning). This program retrains your mind to live in growth mindset more often.


Did you know that over 40% of your day is habitual?

That’s because the human brain functions best when it can predict what’s going to happen. The question is, how much of that 40% comprises bad or unhealthy habits? We’ll unpack that question and get you re-energized to adopt success habits.

the best for yourself? – Epictetus, Greek Philosopher
