A peaceful, stress-free life can be yours.


I know I get it. When I was in the midst of new mothering, trying to get a business off the ground, all while taking care of
all the people and all the things and all the schedules, it became overwhelming and too much and I desperately wanted
someone, somewhere to just TELL ME WHAT TO DO.

Here’s what you get:

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • How to segment your days into mini chunks and exactly how (and why!) to schedule every component of your life – me time, kids’ endless extracurricular activities, and even date night with your partner
  • How to delegate:  No, YOU don’t have to do all the things all the time. It’s okay to protect your boundaries and it’s okay to ask for help. Also? Your kiddos are perfectly capable of cleaning up after themselves. Learn valuable techniques I learned while running preschool centers for homeless children.
  • The exact words to use anytime you need to get out of a pointless meeting, class, or event (hint: it does NOT include the word “sorry”)
  • How to actually prioritize your health every day, even when your kid is home sick for the third time this month and the roof just sprung a giant leak
  • How to create a realistic budget (even if math is not your thing!) – and the one thing you can’t overlook
  • The P.R.O.M. method for decluttering your home, plus the seven chores that really need to be done daily and the ones you can save for spring cleaning or delegate out
  • How to keep your home company-ready, even when every day is jam packed with field trips and Zoom calls and you barely have five minutes to load the dishwasher 
  • The most important relationship of all (spoiler alert: it’s not your marriage…) and how to nourish it – and the four other major relationships in your life
  • Proper communication techniques – see ya, cold shoulder and arguments that devolve into finger pointing and name calling (because that’s mature)
  • How to finally feel happy, content, at peace, and proud of yourself when you crawl into bed each and every night

What people are saying

Questions? We got you covered

You are right. When you try to follow a one-size-fits all approach to Life and Time management it doesn’t leave room for life’s ups, downs, and all-arounds.

This is why I’m so passionate about combining a proven framework with personalized one-on-one coaching. If all we had
to do was follow a specific recipe for a life well lived we’d all look alike, sound alike, and have the same thoughts and beliefs.

And that is not real life.

In real life your version of success is different than your co-worker’s or the lady down the street. Within the Simple Shortcuts to Peace framework we will take the time to truly and honestly assess what you actually WANT and then together we will make a plan to help you get there in a slow, steady, and sustainable way.

Together, we will reprogram your brain and mindset by using proven techniques found in psychology and cognitive behavior therapy to thoughtfully get all you want out of life. It’s not fun to feel as if you are constantly taking one step forward and two steps back – together we will create mini goals and milestones to keep you motivated and on track to meet your long term goals and aspirations.

Yes. The beauty of the Simple Shortcuts to Peace course is that I want you to live a long, healthy, and satisfying life WHILE moving towards your personal and professional goals.

We’ve all heard stories of the business executive who was so focused on monetary wealth that her family life was neglected and stories of someone who finally reached a certain accolade of success to get sidelined by a health scare.

I don’t want that for you.

You can absolutely find a way to live out your own version of “The American Dream” in a steady and sustainable way without sacrificing yourself or your sanity.

You can, but it will take longer. This is a system for success that has been tested by hundreds of people (primarily women) from all over the world. Consider this program a way to set yourself up for lifelong success. It’s not a “quick fix” or a “hack” – but a proven formula to help you get from where you are to where you want to go.

One of the main components of the Simple Shortcuts to Peace course is that you are not left to fend for yourself. Each month there is an optional group call where you can meet other like-minded people and all enrollees are able to have two individualized coaching calls with Steph.

Having another set of eyeballs on your thoughts and patterns is a great way to uncover bias and see if you are
inadvertently self-sabotaging.

You are right for this program if you are done trying a bunch of things and you are still not moving forward with your personal and professional life goals or dreams.

There are usually two schools of thoughts when it comes to goal setting and achieving:

1) Manifestation
2) SMART goals and “white knuckling” your way to success

I love thought work and am a huge proponent of daydreaming and journaling but you can’t just sit around and hope and pray for things to change. You have to create a plan and follow it through to get from where you are to where you want to be in life.

I find SMART goals rather stupid when it comes to life planning and long term goals and dreams. In real life you can not place a timeline on many things and forcing yourself to adhere to an unrealistic plan in order to achieve an arbitrary deadline is what causes feelings of failure and inadequacy.

You can absolutely live out the life of your dreams with the right plan and support system in place.

The price of the Simple Shortcuts to Peace program is a one-time fee of $550. I don’t currently offer a payment plan because of credit card fees and the logistical hassle of tracking down payments. That said, if this is a financial hardship please email me directly and we can work something out.

I have tried to be as thorough as possible with this course to provide everything you will need to build out a solid foundation to have success in all areas of your life. This one-time fee will give you unlimited access to all of the video trainings, worksheets, ebooks, and downloadable trackers. You may join into the once a month calls for as long as you’d like and all course participants are eligible for two one-on-one coaching calls that are redeemable at any time.
