Your body has stored emotion since you were born.
Any time you didn’t know how to process a big emotion or a traumatic experience, it was tucked away and saved for later. (Incredible, huh? This explains so much…)
And you know those old mailboxes? Where the little flag let you know if it’s empty or full of mail?
I believe that sometimes your body gets full of emotion. And at some point for each of us, too full. Postpartum anxiety and depression are like that mailbox flag.
The mailbox flag says, “Time to take out the mail!”
Postpartum Anxiety and Postpartum Depression are saying, “Time to release all this stored emotion and trauma!”
Your subconscious mind is actually in charge of your overall healing.
And when your body is full, it will send you anxiety and depressiveness (among other things like chronic pain or illness) to get your attention focused on your healing.
But how does a postpartum mom go about taking the time and energy and emotional space (feeling overwhelmed? Hang with me.) to go through the deep, dark old stuff…. Safely, might I add…. All while managing this anxiety or feeling less depressed so she can get back to her motherhood?
We don’t want things to get worse when we can barely keep our head above water?!
Exactly. That’s why unlike many therapists, who go deep first, I give postpartum moms the mindful body-and-mind-calming tools to take their mental health back to baseline.
Stability first, because I know how overwhelming, demanding and busy postpartum motherhood is.
The Calm your Body, Calm your Mind tools (taught in the course within the Membership) help you to get the day-to-day feeling stable before you start digging deeper.
Once you have your stability back and your mental health is back to baseline (what you THOUGHT you needed before coming to this page), that’s when we can get to the root.
Because you don’t want to have to deal with this again.
Because you’re the kind of lady that would rather do the tough thing right up front, so you have true freedom over this.
So you don’t ever have to be this scared and desperate again.YES, I AM!
I know you.
It’s okay if you feel a bit intimidated.
It’s okay if secretly, you want to run away from this page and pretend you never learned any of this and just go back to square one.
(And you can always wait until you feel ready…)
But deep down, we all know that we have this load of pain, sadness, bottled-up stress responses from the most vulnerable times in our life.
And bottom line, postpartum is the best time to do this work.
Never at any other time is your body more open, more ready to move energy and set the stage for a new beginning.

What's in the Membership
Just so you know, I have a lot to offer you in the membership. And all of it is digestible and available live, or in video and audio replay. Because I know moms.
Let’s go over each of these! Because why not? ;)
The Postpartum Anxiety Course
This is the main feature of the membership. This is your home base.
The course builds on itself, but you can also jump around if you know you need certain sections. In the intro video I overview everything so you know where you want to start. And, you can watch OR listen to the course.
The course is broken up into four parts:
- Intro to healing - this is where you and I get to know each other! I gently prepare your mind for the work of calming your mind and body. There are some amazing self-evaluation worksheets to help you really get clear on where you’re starting at and what areas you’ll need to focus on.
- Calm your Body - This is where I teach you how to tune IN to your anxiety, when what you really want to do is run away. I teach you how to build a relationship with the ebbs and flows of anxiety as it happens in your body, regardless of what your mind is doing. You’ll actually learn to turn off your mind and tune into your body, which is your best tool to de-escalate anxiety, and to keep depression from spiraling.
- Calm your Mind - once your body and you have the whole ‘calming’ thing down, it will be a lot easier to get ahead of the triggers that start your anxiety in the first place. Once the body is managed, I can easily teach you tools to make sure your imagination (where anxiety happens) is working to support you, not to wear you down.
- Calm your Life - This section is after your day-to-day is flowing more normally for you, and walks you through supporting your body as it releases or finishes processing big trauma from your past. You also have my live coaching to assist you in this, I’m here for you.
Weekly Live Coaching
What’s coaching? You just get to show up with all your emotions or questions, possibly not even knowing where to start or what to ask, or how to ask it.
You may be overwhelmed with emotion, or sort of numb and struggling. I do the work of helping you open up, see new things, get to where you’re wanting to go, or at least see the next steps to do that. I reference the course a lot.
On coaching calls, I am amazing at asking the right questions to help you open up and see new things and new work and progress within yourself. Also, you get to sit back and witness other postpartum moms doing this, and their coaching is your coaching.
Example topics women coach on:
- Anxiety, anxiety, anxiety
- Any questions about applying the course content
- Birth trauma
- Rekindling a relationship with yourself
- Resenting your husband
- Sex after baby
- Resenting your own needs
- Not feeling a connection to baby
- Sleep training
- Shame and depression
- Processing emotions in your body
- Getting out of your head
- And so much more!

Who this membership is NOT a good fit for:
My membership (and my approach to healing) are not a good fit for logical women who only ever want to be logical.
My membership is not for women who only want medication to numb symptoms. I fully support medication as part of the healing process at times for some people, but it’s not something that I believe should be our only solution to long-term healing. Though I support people who want or believe that! Here, we are more holistic and work with the subconscious and conscious as well as listen to the body a lot.
Who this membership IS a fit for:
Women who want to heal from the inside out.
If you have a desire to be more heart-centered, more spiritually connected and more holistic and body-connected, this is for you and you’ll love it. It will feel like home.
What if you’re working with another healthcare professional or mental health professional?
No problem. Just join and see how it fits. You may love having both.
Mom's who've done this work with Lizzie say...
“I am looking forward to breaking the cycle and not grasping to go back to being “my old self” but rather, I’m allowing this postpartum experience to radically transform my life and help me be new.
I love the podcast episode on whether healing is possible because it is such a great reminder that we can’t rely on meds, nutrition, or circumstance to easily stop depression.
I am starting to lean from “probably will heal” to “healing is inevitable”. I am so grateful for Lizzie and her wisdom.”
“Sometimes I have to look at the progress I’ve made and ask myself, “who even is this person? She’s so functional!” And guys, it me! It’s really me! The person making dinner is me, the person waking up and taking care of her kids is me. That bad ass mom thinking better, more helpful thoughts, allowing space for her emotions, is me. Check me out! I’m doing it!
I was on the fence about getting coaching. I’m here today, climbing my way out of a PPD black hole and beginning to thrive in my motherhood. I will never be on the fence when it comes to my mental health again.”
“This work saved my marriage, my sanity, and I truly believe, my life. I’m so grateful each day to have grown more present and playful in my motherhood and my marriage, to make it through the day without reliance on caffeine and sugar to pull me through, and to sleep more peacefully at night.
As mothers, we want the best for our children, and that means showing up as the best version of ourselves. If motherhood is having you feel disconnected or out of sorts – I urge you to (work with) Lizzie. She’ll help you find your way.”
