Branching Out with Boundaries

In my work as a sex coach, it is extremely common to meet people who struggle to uphold their boundaries.

This isn’t just about sex; many people struggle to say no to family members, bosses, clients, neighbors, friends, and even to behaviors they themselves want to engage less in.

I can really relate to people in these situations.

As a recovering people-pleaser and approval-seeker, I’ve worked hard over the last few years to do better at identifying and clearly communicating my boundaries.

It’s been a long journey, and the people who are still in my life have changed along the way. But I’m definitely happier for it.

A few friends have commented over the last year that they’d love to get as good at boundaries as I am. This is a huge compliment in my eyes, and I don’t take it lightly!

I finally sat down recently and wrote out how, exactly, I frame boundary work for myself. I did my best to write it in a way that anyone could access.

It’s a highly personalized work, of course. Readers can take what they want, and leave what they don’t. Your boundaries journey will likely look different than mine, and that’s okay.

But if you do want to see my framework, you’re welcome to check it out. I created a small 27-page ebook all about it:

UPDATE: Check out my boundaries resource page for my latest boundary-related offerings.

P.S. If you’re on Facebook, I also created a group where people working on their boundaries can exchange resources, advice, stories, and more. Check it out at
