Hi, I’m Iris Higgins.
I have been coaching womxn for the last 10+ years. If there is one thing I have learned, it is that we live in a society that has taught us many stories that don’t support our wellbeing. I help womxn unlearn these old stories and create new stories that allow them to make personal wellbeing and happiness a priority.
I graduated from New York University with a master’s degree in psychology and am a certified hypnotherapist. My original intention when getting my master’s degree was to pursue a PhD in social psychology. As a biracial (black/white) woman who looks white, I wanted to study race and appearances. But life led me down a different path – a very long and winding one! – that ended with a hypnotherapy certification from Bastyr University outside of Seattle.
On this site, you’ll notice a few things:
- I use the term womxn with an x to intentionally include transgender women and non-binary folx (here again, the spelling of folx is specifically inclusive of all genders and marginalized groups). I believe that without acknowledging and upholding the most marginalized among us, their stories often get ignored.
- My services are offered at a radical sliding scale so that I can support womxn at all income levels while still allowing my business to thrive. Almost 50% of my client sessions are held at a sliding scale price, which is made possible by clients who are able to pay full price.
A little bit more about me: I am an INFJ, complete introvert, gluten-free foodie, and love to curl up with a good romance novel. I live in Arizona with my boyfriend and our two daughters, work out of my office closet, and often dream about taking solo vacations (ahem…introvert).
