Helping High Performing Women Achieve Balance!


Helping High Performers Succeed on Their Own Terms

 

Everything in your mind and your body shows up on your skin.

And your skin is your calling card. As much as we might not like it, the truth remains that your skin is a major part of your first impression. And so of course you want it to look good. And so you find yourself struggling to find the best cream, the best cleanser, the best moisturizer. You have an important meeting, audition, event - and your face isn't cooperating. You have breakouts, your skin is blotchy, and you don't know how to get it to glow. 

This is how I can help. Remember, everything in your mind and your body shows up on your skin so you need to address it from a mind, body, and spirit perspective.

  • I can help you calm your mind and fill it with positive thoughts that take your life where you want it to go.
  • I can help you balance your body through nourishing herbal teas and tinctures, the right eating habits (intuitive eating) and intuitive 'skin fitness' to energize you, detox your system, and nourish and nurture your skin from the outside in and inside out so that your healthy glow shines through.
  • I can help you connect with a spiritual practice that nourishes your soul, replenishes you, and sustains you.
 

My Story: High performing for someone else to high performing for myself

My family always expected the best from me. I was the chosen one, the "golden child", the one who would succeed. So from early on, I've carried that pressure. Living life from that viewpoint made every decision difficult, ever failure devastating, and every accomplishment nerve-wrecking.

The decisions were difficult because what I wanted wasn't all that mattered and what everyone else expected was always more important. The failures were devastating because the public embarrassment of not fulfilling the expectation was almost unbearable. The accomplishments were nerve-wrecking because with each one, the pressure was greater to top it, to continue on the path up and what if that was the highest I could go? What would that mean? And would I be cast away? 

I learned through many years of study, self evaluation, and just plain out experience, how to find my balance and start living a life of my own design.

It wasn't easy to get there.

The pressure to be "a success" plagued me. I struggled through debilitating clinical depression from childhood on and attempted suicide in 2009 because of it. I truly hit my rock bottom and I couldn't take the pressure anymore.

Through work and on purpose effort though, I learned the techniques that brought me back up and out. I learned how to free myself of the pressure of everyone else's opinions and start living for myself. And the way there was surprising. It wasn't just all about changing my work, my environment, my mental state. It was so much more. It wasn't just about loving myself more in an ethereal, intangible way.

I realized that there were tangible, physical, practical ways that helped me make the switches I needed to make easily and effortlessly. When I began doing the things that made me feel better on one level, it amazed me to see how easily it carried over into the rest of my life. I started to see the connections and realize just how intertwined it all was. 

And that's why I'm here. I'm here to show you, high performer, how easy it can be to bring it all around and make yourself feel whole - maybe again, maybe for the first time.

So Who is Leah Patterson?

I am your wellness and holistic beauty mentor - ready to coach you and cheer for you on your journey towards your all the time vibrant and fulfilled life!

Ok my dear - real questions here.

Don't you want to break free from being out of touch with yourself, out of sync with your life, out of focus with who you really are?

How do you get back that feeling of synergy and completeness

you get when you're dancing?

That path involves learning to ebb and flow with your environment. It means learning to use the natural world around you to your aid. Learning to tap into your innate wisdom and let it guide you. It may even mean getting a little woo woo. And then learning to infuse all of that with a healthy bit of sass ;-).

I have this synergy in my life all the time as a naturalista and dancer...This lifestyle guides me and I'm going to show you how it can guide you too.

I've been on my journey of living my version of a naturally, vibrant life ever since I left my position as a research fellow at the National Institute's of Health early to pursue a new path. That path filled itself with studying herbal medicine, starting a non-profit organization, working as a holistic esthetician, starting more than one holistic centered business all while becoming an international salsa instructor and performer and along the way discovering what it meant to live life on purpose. 

What is a vibrant, fulfilled life?

I define it as a life lived on purpose and what's more, lived with an ever-growing awareness about who you are, what embracing 'happy' means to you and how you fit into this big beautiful world we live in.

These are the keys:

 

  • Wellness

  • Beauty

  • Movement
