Many of you know that I had to cut back on my days for coaching as I’ve been in classes for nutrition and the gut microbiome. I am also creating teaching content about psych med withdrawal for a university in Canada. Plus, I am still working on a benzo withdrawal book. It’s been a busy summer, but it’s coming to a close. I’ll be back to coaching Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday starting Monday, September 6. I’ll open the schedule up for bookings on Thursday, September 2. (I’m still available for emergency sessions on my non-coaching days or after hours. If you are desperate for help, please reach out to see if I can be of assistance.)
With inflation and the rising costs of doing business in California, my fees will go up slightly to 65$ for thirty minutes and 130$ for an hour starting Monday, October 4. (My coaching rates are still below the industry standard for my education and qualifications.) I haven’t raised my fees in many years because finances can be a struggle in benzo withdrawal. If my coaching fees are more than your budget allows, please consider joining my Mornings With Jenn live support group. It is 59$ a month. We meet Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, at 9 AM Pacific on a secret Facebook group. If you can’t make the live session, you can watch later as the sessions are recorded and archived.
So many of you have said that you want to explore plant-based nutrition, but you don’t know how to go about it. I’ll be helping you transition to a healthier diet, offering buying guides, meal suggestions, recipes, etc., (all with the gut microbiome and the detoxification pathways in mind) in a pilot group I’ll start on Friday August 20. There will be a blog post soon where you can sign up if you are interested. The pilot group will be free. Once I’ve polished the rough edges, I’ll offer the group for a fee, much like my support group, Mornings With Jenn.
I have to be honest with you and confess that sometimes my work totally depletes me. It’s hard to hear the amount of suffering that I hear, especially when you are as tender-hearted as I am. I’m a total empath. I guess God saw that after ten years of being in the benzo community, I was getting a bit ragged around the edges. So He put me together with a doctor who is studying benzo withdrawal. We are exchanging information and doing our best to put together suggested blood tests and nutritional support that can help reduce the time it takes to heal. I’m excited about what I’m learning and so eager to share it with you. That excitement has lifted my spirits and given me a new sense of purpose. I feel we are making new inroads into reducing suffering. I am grateful for that.
Last but not least, I’ll do my best to be more consistent about blogging and creating videos for YouTube.
Keep healing, friends. Say it with me, “I am safe. I am healing. I will recover.” No matter how hopeless you may feel, you are going to get better. Keep going.
From my heart to yours,
