OWN YOUR SUPER POWERS
Sterk Family Law | Professional Women’s Network
October 03, 2018
I had so much fun coaching the women from Orland Park Women’s Professional Networking and the Sterk Family Law practice. We talked about how to own your super powers, which is a combination of temperament, training and natural talents. We also practiced powerful body hacks, which is a method of using your body to shift into a posture of confidence and strength. I love what I do and absolutely loved working with this amazing group of women.
Shift Happens – Domesticated To Wild Hearted
Everyday Deep, January 16th, 2019
One of the big issues I witness in women is the loss of their instinctual, natural self – and the authenticity and aliveness that go with it. I loved speaking to the women at EVERYDAY DEEP about how to shift from domesticating their desires to activating their wild hearts.
Overtime, the experience of emotional domestication can cause a woman to lose the innate power of her natural wild-hearted self. When this happens a number of emotional habits can emerge – she domesticates her desires, stops noticing what she needs, is more hesitant to speak up and loses the innate power of her voice. However, when a women reclaims her wild-hearted nature she becomes more confident, authentic and empowered.

Moving from Fear and Into Action:
The Queen Esther Experience
Christ Church of Oak Brook, January 30th, 2018
Every woman has had a Queen Esther Experience – a moment when she needs to move from fear and into action. I was honored to host a workshop for the women at Christ Church of Oak Brook on January 30th, 2018. We collectively dug deeper into the story of Queen Esther and connected with her experience as a woman who took risks. Every woman left with a deeper awareness of how to move from fear and into action, from self-doubt to courage and with a greater awareness of how to access her tribe on her journey towards boldness.

The Conference is a collaboration of two therapists and friends that share a common belief that when women are able to own their true voice, amazing things happen. Margo Tirado and Shawna Burkhart are passionate about sharing their experiences and knowledge in broader and more meaningful ways. This conference is the seedling of that idea.
Jesus – An Activist for Women
Moody Chapel, February 22, 2018
I recently had the honor of speaking to 1600 college students at Moody Bible Chapel regarding Christ’s posture toward women. He was intentional about promoting the dignity and equality of women in the midst of a male-dominated society. During his three years of ministry on earth He created a radically new approach regarding the value of women as witnesses, disciples, teachers, and leaders. He did not accept the attitudes towards women that were customary during the first century, but instead, He sought to reform the status quo of women.
