She is a leading expert on overcoming perfectionism and building an authentic life. As the founder of Perfectionism University, an online platform for self-help courses on breaking up with perfectionism, her goal is to create a community where we can all unlearn Perfectionism and start our journey of embracing imperfections and owning our enoughness.
She knows one can be a prisoner of their perfectionism. Her hope for others is that they turn the judgment to compassion and ultimately live a life where they embrace imperfection rather than striving for perfection.
In this episode, we discuss the connection between perfectionism and anxiety, being a people pleaser, how perfectionism affects relationships, ways to cope and work on one's perfectionist tendencies, and more.
