Can you relate to
Getting done with your interpreting shift and feeling stressed and in pain?
Waking up each morning feeling tired and having to just keep your head above water.
Struggling to find the motivation to do things you know are good for you and want to do.
Feeling overwhelmed with everything that has to be done and not having time for yourself.
The strain on your relationships including the one with yourself.?
Many Interpreters are taking care of others and have busy schedules which makes it hard to get off the hamster wheel to evaluate what is working, and what is not working and make changes.
You feel out of balance. It doesn’t have to be this way. There are solutions to feeling balanced, healthy, and having more energy.
To make changes in our lives, we need to slow down, make the time, listen, and be heard, and not just learn a new tip or skill but practice it and make it our own.

Carly holds space for me; allowing me to identify my feelings, beliefs, and perceptions about any aspect of my life. Through exploration, conversation, and reflection Carly does an astounding job at helping me find flow where I otherwise have been experiencing break down. I feel uplifted, empowered, and respected as we meet- unearthing whatever is unsettled in that moment-
When I decided to call upon Carly’s services, I had no idea the positive impact she would have on me. Because of Carly’s gentle influence I have had a paradigm shift in the direction of kindness towards myself. My goals are now more clear and more attainable than ever before. Carly is a beautiful person and she spreads that beauty onto whoever and whatever she touches. My heart is full thinking of the lives she will touch and the good that it will do—especially in a world full of individuals that need all the positivity we can muster.
What I love about Jen’s classes is the micro instruction; that even standing seems to be a workout because she is reminding us to mindfully hold our entire body in the present moment. --
I just wanted to say thank you again because I feel so much more aware of my posture these days and I’m catching myself when my shoulders are scrunched up and I’m tring to be very cognizant…It feel better than before. I’m so grateful. -
I wanted to share that I’m walking my dog and I’m aware my chest feels completely different! It feels like my shoulders live on my back instead fo just above my chest and it feels like my lungs are bigger than they were before! Really remarkable.
Carly's kind, intuitive, and supportive nature has allowed our sessions to not only be productive, but also personally enlightening. Carly is an absolute gift and I highly recommend her services.
