Like Gloria said in The Barbie Movie:

“It’s nearly impossible to be a woman.”

[Cue Gloria Monologue.]

And that’s under NORMAL circumstances.

(Psst: The past few years have been anything but normal!)

(On top of that, we live in a world that pitches gloom and doom at us from all directions, and profits from our collective anxiety.)

When you add your own life-shaking change onto all of that … 

collage of images that can lead to existential crisis or dark night of the soul created by Crucible Coach and Intuitive Soul Guide Kristin Halberg.
The intense emotional pressure and anxiety felt during life shaking change, existential crisis or a dark night of the soul could be caused by a sudden catapult from a role you’ve held for some time, an abrupt change to a world view brought about by Big T or Little T traumas, or a series of events that lead to a tipping point. This pressure could also be caused by navigating the psychological weight of the prevailing practices of society. Although these intense feelings are normal under these circumstances, working with a professional can help you get through to the other side.

Is it any wonder you’re lounging in sweatpants binge-watching your favorite comfort shows, spooning mouthfuls of Ben & Jerry’s right out of the carton, wishing you had your favorite heroine’s unwavering confidence to live life unapologetically?

I see you.

You’ve built your life around being easy to get along with.

You’re selfless, and helpful.

Your reputation is book-ended on performing under pressure and managing on a shoestring.

You hide your vulnerable bits under your general competence, a thick armor of humor, and always being there for everyone else.

So you feel like you should be able to handle this yourself, too.

Of course you can.

But here’s the thing: no heroine starts her journey with all the tools she needs.

Even Stereotypical Barbie sought out a guide.

You can too.

So many women say working with me changed their LIFE:

So if you’re faking smiles and assuring folks you’re fine

while secretly:

  • smothering your anxiety and hiding your despair by scrolling socials and binge-watching funny dog reels until your eyes glaze over …
  • questioning the point of everything and comparing your life to [enter your arch-nemesis here] wondering how in the world you ended up here
  • doubting every single choice you ever made, caught up in analysis paralysis so bad you don’t even know what detergent to buy at the grocery store …
  • blowing into a paper bag to try calming your racing heart, not even sure you know why you’re anxious, while shaking your fist at the sky and shouting “even caterpillars get a STICK!”
  • giving time the side-eye, knowing the only thing slowing down is your metabolism, and panicking that you’ll die penniless and alone (even though you know better …)

If this is you:

You might be experiencing life-shaking change.

Author Alice Walker said: “Some periods of our growth are so confusing that we don’t even recognize that growth is happening. We may feel hostile or angry or weepy and hysterical, or we may feel depressed. It would never occur to us, unless we stumbled on a book or a person who explained to us, that we were in fact in the process of change, of actually becoming larger, spiritually, than we were before.”

Whether it’s a change you choose, or not, life-shaking change is HARD!

But you don’t have to go through it alone.

Get ready to Stop the Struggle and Get Calm, Confident and Clear about your next steps…

without joining an Ashram, hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, or overthrowing the patriarchy by pointing out the cognitive dissonance it takes to be a woman.

[Although it’s a shame that last example isn’t that simple …]
