what's covered:

Before the workshop I was feeling like the constant worry and troublesome thoughts were consuming me. After taking the workshop, I felt much better. I had many realizations that were not just interesting but also helpful.

many realizations


I liked that the sessions center on a theme and that they were well researched without being too scripted. It was helpful to learn the different ways anxiety can manifest.

learning so much

This workshop has maybe been the most eye-opening experience of my ENTIRE life. These are concepts that I am just recently discovering. And I think many people don't receive much insight into health or how the body works. And this is yet another space where I feel empowered to take some responsibility for my health. To say that this workshop was life changing is no exaggeration. I am forever changed.

I'm being proactive about my own mental health. You can too.

I ran a thriving healthcare practice as a Naturopathic Doctor and Acupuncturist for over 20 years. I also earned my PhD and spent time in academic research and teaching positions. Now, I enjoy reading scientific studies for the purpose of using the insights to help me, and our community, get the most out of life.

I created XO Living as a way of cultivating a supportive community of growth-minded women who want to develop meaningful connections, with themselves and others, while having memorable experiences.

I was inspired to create XO Living after I embarked upon my own journey of self-(re)discovery and realized that there must be other women out there like her who want more from life, too.

XO courses is a natural extension of our amazing community. I hold workshops where I share what I know, and what I'm learning  from the members.

you can feel better

you're not alone
