Hi, I'm Barb. I had horrible boundaries too!

I had no boundaries and was constantly people-pleasing others, so if that’s you - I know what it’s like.

You’re constantly worried about what other people are doing (or not doing!) and what other people are thinking of you. Meanwhile, you’re neglecting your own needs and not taking care of yourself! (I know, because what was me!) I still help people, but I’m no longer rescuing them. And I help from a place of abundance, rather than a place of lack - my cup is full AND I'm not looking to get them to like me.

I have healthy boundaries now, which means I take really good care of myself, stay out of situations that drain me, and have plenty of energy to help those who are willing to help themselves. I no longer spend energy helping people who have no interest in helping themselves.

If you’d like to learn how to develop boundaries, stop the people-pleasing and take care of yourself I can help! There's a free worksheet and article below, as well as links to a bunch of episodes of my podcast on boundaries. I'm especially gifted at helping others develop healthy boundaries, so if you think you'd like coaching on boundaries you can find out more below about that too.

What people are saying

"You gave us a totally new way to see things...You cut to the chase and put up fences. I’m a farmer (was) and fences with gates were sooo powerful. Properties have them too but not only did you draw them you carefully explained how to use them. I learned not just how to keep things out BUT to keep things in.... faith, integrity, time. There were things outside the fences and inside." ~ Anonymous workshop participant
