Jody and Kristen are mental health leaders by profession and at heart. We have created a signature methodology specifically teaching ways that ignite sustainable peace, joy, and motivation through accelerated learning techniques that shorten the learning curve. We are passionate about holding space for those ready to recognize and experience their inner light and individual gifts without judgment, expectations, or obligation to participate.
Jody is the Founder of the Positation Movement. She is a certified Core Belief Restructuring Practitioner. She is an empathic and intuitive leader and has been practicing mental health living for over fifteen years. She grew up with a narcissistic mother with bi-polar tendencies, aka covert narcissism. Her mother was not an easy person to be around but it was easy for Jody to feel devalued and inadequate most of her life. While raising a family she finally said, enough is enough, that generational (Sh*T) pain was going to stop with her! After earning her psychology degree, and spending countless hours with clients she has learned a few things: Mental illness SUCKS! Family trauma HURTS! Emotional Relationships, the negative ones are PAINFUL! AND Obligation and Expectations are SUFFOCATING!
As an RYS200 certified yoga instructor and the mother of a toddler Kristen understands the importance of beginning each morning with peace and clarity. She also understands the extreme and, often unacknowledged, mental load that comes with being a parent. She has been practicing mental health living for over five years and strives to take an intentional and holistic approach to each day. Her empathic abilities have given her a unique understanding of the mental, emotional, and spiritual baggage that is accumulated throughout this human experience and allow her to approach each relationship with compassion and understanding.
Throughout our long careers, we have observed two categories of people – introverts and extroverts. There is nothing good or bad with either one. They are just simplified terms used to describe the way we interact with the world around us and how we recharge .... not how we show up!
We seek to develop interdependent, meaningful relationships with others but understand those who feel emotionally depleted experience heavy feelings of being overwhelmed, overworked, rejected, or not good enough and feel depleted faster when their interactions are lacking connection. Combine all this with empathic or intuitive spiritual gifts and you have a formula for accelerated burnout.
The problem is that, more often than not, it is hard to find a place like that; where you can "just be" yet still have the opportunity to develop deep connections with those just like you.
