If you're a (current or aspiring) diet culture dropout who finds dating stressful, depressing, or confusing, you've come to the right place.
Anti-diet dating group coaching is for people looking to change their relationship with dating so they can finally create the experiences they want (and deserve!). If you...
Have taken a long hiatus from dating (or have never dated before period) 💏👩❤️💋👩🚫
Avoid dating due to fear of rejection 😨
Feel like there are bunch of dating "rules" that everyone else seems to know except you 🤔
Identify as a "late-bloomer" 💐
Want to do some deep work on how you approach dating 🌱
... whether you identify with one or all of these, this 8-week course is for you! Want a sneak peek of what it's like to work with me? Here's what my 1-on-1 clients have to say:
If you're ready to build confidence, feel more empowered on your dating journey, and only devote time and energy to relationships with people who are into you EXACTLY as you are, I'm so excited to show you how!
Group coaching is limited to 15 participants and will meet once a week for 75 minutes. Over those 12 weeks, I will lead modules over Zoom regarding the following topics: Week 1: Tackling Fear In our first session, we will discuss the most common fears people have when it comes to dating. I’ll explain how fear works (and how it tries to protect us!), as well as unearth the root of many of these fears so we can face them head-on instead of letting them control our lives. The first order of business is to work on reframing dating as something positive and enjoyable (and not that serious!) before we even get started. Week 2: Body Image & Dating Sometimes choosing profile pictures stirs up a lot of emotions and anxiety (and consciousness of the male gaze). I’ll describe how body image has a direct impact on dating success, talk about how to quell internal fears regarding how you will be perceived by others, and share tips on how to take and choose pictures for your profiles that authentically show yourself (without freaking out in the meantime). Week 3: Creating Your Best Bio I'll show you all the tips and tricks in how to write a bio that authentically communicates who you are and what you want without compromising any of your values. At the end of this session, you’ll learn how to write A+ Tinder and Bumble bios that do a lot of the work for you—attracting who you’d want to talk to and, more importantly, repelling who you don’t. I’ll also give you an overview of how dating app algorithms work, why I encourage my clients to be on Bumble and Tinder specifically, as well as an overview of the other apps that are out there (including their benefits and drawbacks).
[Please note: While this module is often enough for people to feel confident to write their bio themselves, I recognize that many folks don’t feel like writing is their strong suit regardless of the circumstances. If you find you want extra support and would like an additional 1-on-1 so I can help co-write your dating app bio, we can arrange that!]
Week 4: Navigating Rejection Fear of rejection is one of the most common reasons people find dating to be stressful (or avoid it altogether). The good news is rejection is neither positive or negative—it just is what it is! In dating, you will experience rejection and, more importantly, give it out (often!). I’ll help you cultivate a positive mindset around one of the most unavoidable parts of dating because, as I like to say: rejection is the price of admission one must pay in order to have a dating life! Week 5: Swiping Effectively and Crafting Excellent Opening Messages If swiping stresses you the f*ck out and/or the very idea of having another dull conversation where you learn nothing substantial or interesting about a match bores you to tears, I’ve got you. I’ll help bring your swiping anxiety down and show how to start conversations that you'd actually want to have. (There will be no “Cats or dogs?” or “Tacos or pizza?” on my watch!)
Week 6: Dating Anxiety & Moving Away from Goal-Oriented Dating By this time, you’ll be swiping, having conversations, and possibly planning dates—video chat or IRL—with matches. If you’re someone who’s historically experienced dating anxiety (“What if I show up and they don’t like me??”), engaged in goal-oriented dating (i.e. you tend to pick out engagement rings after the first date), or just plain want some levity when it comes to dating, I’ll teach you how to calm your anxiety, stay rooted in the present, and reach your goals in how you relate to dating. Week 7: Your 1-on-1! If you’ve been following me on Instagram for a while, you know I do monthly Sex Talk Sundays where I answer questions from my audience regarding sex, dating, relationships, self-love and body image. Consider your 1-on-1 to be your very own Sex Talk Sunday! We’ll sit down and discuss any questions you have for me (sky’s the limit!) and create a game plan if you’re experiencing any challenges while on your dating journey. Week 8: Scarcity Mindset Do you feel like you only go for people who show interest in you (and not the other way around)? Do you bend over backwards for people you just met and/or move too quickly (especially sexually) in relationships to “prove” that you’re desirable? Do you have a hard time believing a person you want to date even exists? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you’re dealing with scarcity mindset. I’ll help you nip this in the bud so it doesn’t sabotage your dating efforts or, at the very least, continue to depress you/stress you out!
Weeks 9 - 12 After 8 weeks of learning a new way to date, it's time to get out there and use these new skills in the real world! If the idea of getting out there and dating scares you, don't worry! You'll have the support of 14 other folks who are starting their dating journey, too--and I'll be right there to help ya! For the four weeks following 8 weeks of classes, you'll be able to your new dating knowledge to the test and chat with the other members of our group about your dating experience. Plus, I'll be available to answer any questions!
What you can also expect to receive during group coaching:
Access to recorded group sessions for a year (so you can look back on them whenever you need a refresher!).
Access to a 24/7 private group chat with your fellow group members (via a platform called PracticeBetter) where you will receive support, encouragement, and community whenever you need it!
Email support is included in my fee ($125/session + $125 deposit). This means you can message me directly with any quick questions you have while we're working together--I always answer these messages within 24-48 hours.
Homework! There will be books to read (with accompanying reading guides), journal prompts for self-reflection and processing, as well as other homework (like writing a bio!) to complete throughout these 2 months. My goal is for you to have lots of tangible deliverables that you can keep and look back on after our time together is over.
