Your self-care is not selfish; it’s a damn necessity.

What’s Self-Care Coaching?
Whole Damn Woman thinks it’s every person’s birthright to feel safe, comfortable, appreciated, and accomplished. The outdated harms of the patriarchy make us all feel less than whole, and we want to help you fight against it. Self-care coaching is personalized education that teaches you to listen to your needs. A lot of women and non-binary folks are taught to put everyone but themselves first. When it comes time to nourish ourselves, we’re told to defer, to make things easier for everyone else. When Seeta, our CEO, taught college courses, she’d go half the day without a pee break or food because everyone else’s needs were more pressing. She learned to people please, ignore her boundaries, and sacrifice her health and sanity because that’s what she was taught to do to get ahead. And she watched as most of the women around her did the same thing.
After twenty-plus years of that garbage, Seeta was done. She spent the height of the pandemic resting, going to therapy, and learning self-compassion. She reconnected with herself, and she longed to share her newfound self-acceptance with others. Thus, Whole Damn Woman’s self-care coaching is about wholeness. It’s about you reclaiming your passion and joy, your time and energy.
A lot of messages about self-care center on luxury and indulgence. We’re all about that (we love a massage!), but self-care is so much more. It’s personal. It’s private. It’s unique to you.
And it’s radical because self-care for enbies and women dismantles the patriarchy like the stale fart that it is.

Is Self-Care Coaching Right for Me?
Simple answer: Enthusiastically yes! Self-care coaching is right for everyone who’s ready to stop catering to patriarchal mediocrity. Our successful clients are ready to go beyond liking cute, inspirational graphics on social media. They’re ready to do the inner work. They want to grow. They’re sick of the status quo and feel drawn to a better life. Our clients are urgent to say “fuck off” to stress and overwhelm. They’re sick of the word “should,” and they want to feel whole.
Whole Damn Woman’s clients know it’s beyond time to challenge our internalized patriarchy. That little jerk inside us needs to go, so we challenge its restrictive rules together. Our loud and proud feminist approach works toward systemic change by helping individuals retake their social power: Themselves.
Plus, our clients want to wake up feeling secure, confident, and values-aligned. They’re ready to commit to the sessions, the time, and the work.
They’re ready to honor themselves.
