TRANSFORM YOUR HEARTBREAK
INTO YOUR BREAKTHROUGH.

I AM LOVE is a group coaching program that uses writing tools and strategies for transformational healing.

 

Heartbreak is a word used here to describe all forms of pain in all forms of love and relationships. Heartbreak is any experience of grief, stress, or loss that has shattered our hearts once or multiple times throughout our lives. Even when these experiences are no longer present, they can become negative voices that convince us that our capacity to give and receive love isn’t enough.

 

You are enough. You ARE love. But maybe you are struggling to believe that you are worthy and capable of receiving love, because you are still living in a story that centers on your pain, rather than your power.

CHANGE YOUR STORY, CHANGE YOUR LIFE:
THE POWER OF REFRAMING.

Discover your new self-love language. 

 

The language we use to describe ourselves and our experiences shape our reality. Let’s uncover the language of your new story through the power of reframing.

IF YOU STRUGGLE WITH

  • Limiting beliefs and false narratives about who you are and who you want to become. 
     

  • Feeling unsure about how to share your story from a position of power and not pain or trauma. 
     

  • Seeking connection to those who have had similar life experiences.

WE WILL CREATE

  • Scripts that will anchor you into your new reality while honoring the totality of all of your past and current experiences.
     

  • A confident new narrative that provides you with an authentic life road map of where you have been and where you want to go.
     

  • A public narrative that connects your unique and personal experiences to the collective and shared human experiences.

THE BLANK PAGE DOESN'T HAVE TO STAY BLANK.

Let me guess: you’re excited about rewriting your heartbreak story, but the idea of a blank page is unsettling or even scary to you…

 

...and that’s totally okay. The good news: I’m here to make writing feel as easy as possible by supporting and guiding you through a step-by-step framework that will empower you to rewrite your life story.

 

All you need to do is show up. No prior writing experience is required!

I was seeking a safe, expansive container within which to develop my story, one to anchor and guide me in this new phase of my life and to help me integrate my WHAT's (life story and gifts) with my WHY (purpose) as I build a new business. So happy to come across Haylee and her story coaching! She offers such an invaluable gift of space holding, guidance, coaching, encouragement and storytelling.

I really appreciate that she feels into what is being said behind the words, affirms that she feels and sees in me, and, above all, she cares about me as a person, my story, and my growth, first and foremost. If you are seeking fertile grounds within which to nurture a story and/or truth about yourself, I wholeheartedly recommend Haylee!!

My greatest challenge has been leaving the darkness behind and stepping into the light. There are challenges in sharing our story when the people we have been most naked, intimate, and honest with were not loving, kind, or accepting of us. Moreover, we live in a world where certain narratives are elevated, and others are erased. This is injustice, and we must heal ourselves and speak our truth in order for people like us to know that they are powerful, beautiful, talented, and BLESSED.

 

The journey is always been about self-love, but it is never linear. How can we love ourselves when that was never an option? How can we know our true selves when the truth was never an option? This experience has taught me that our stories shape who we believe we are—our stories are worthy; WE ARE WORTHY! No one has YOUR STORY. I cannot overstate how much value I derived from this program—I highly recommend Story With Haylee!

Before working with Haylee, I was struggling with understanding and finding value in my story. It was difficult for me to own the power that my story could have for other people. I would downplay my experiences and gloss over my struggles and achievements. Through working with Haylee, I was able to feel empowered through sharing my story. She helped me find the beauty in my past and how it is supporting the impact I want to make in this world.

 

Whenever I felt doubt, she cheered me on and lifted me up. It was especially transformative to be seen and validated by a fellow woman of color who understands how much we have been silenced over generations. Now I have more confidence in not only my story but what I'm creating in my life. I would highly recommend working with Haylee if you want to understand your story, own the power in it, and share it clearly with others.
