“I am going to talk about vaginas. I’m going to talk about leaking, I want to talk about sexual pain, because nobody else is talking about this. And we are all deeply ingrained to be ashamed of this. And we are hiding the fact that we feel broken inside. And we’re walking around with this underlying story of there’s something deeply wrong with me.”

“We are not fixers. I’m not here to fix anybody. Nobody is broken. But we are people and we deserve support.”

“They don’t want to be high achievers. High achievers come at the expense of me, I am going to do at the expense of me. High performers care for ourselves every step of the way. And we get better outcomes in that way.”

“Do you have a value of excellence or are you valuing perfection?”

“If somebody is questioning, if they deserve support? The answer is always yes.”
