Hi, I’m Iris Higgins (she/her).

I help womxn unlearn limiting stories and prioritize their wellbeing.

 


 

 

 

Experience and Perspective

I have been providing coaching and hypnotherapy for womxn for the last 10+ years. My mission is to help others unlearn old, limiting stories, and create and live out new ones that make personal wellbeing and happiness a priority.

I graduated from New York University with a master’s degree in psychology and earned a certification in hypnotherapy from Bastyr University outside of Seattle. My original intention when getting my master’s degree was to pursue a PhD in social psychology. As a biracial (black/white) womxn 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’s brought me here.

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 closet office, and often dream about taking solo vacations (ahem…did I already say, “introvert?”).

I believe…

Our value is inherent.

  • I believe we have inherent values as a living being, separate from what we do for others. This means you (yes, YOU) are worthy of a stable income, rest, joy, love, quality food, and so many other things that our society might tell you that you have to earn.

Intuition is our north star.

  • I believe that we are the experts of our own lives, and that intuition is there to constantly guide us. I trust your lived experience and your ability to determine what is best for you.

Equity and inclusion must be intentional.

  • I believe that without acknowledging and upholding the most marginalized among us, their stories often get ignored. I hold space for all womxn, including those who don’t fit the gender binary and whose identities are often oppressed by society. I own my privilege and consistently seek to understand, uphold, and learn from historically underrepresented voices.

Our differences are our superpowers.

  • I believe that the things that make us each different – and that the world may have tried to get us to change – are the superpowers that can make us the heroes of our own stories. I believe in being more you than you have ever been.

Commitment to Radical Inclusion

It’s my goal to live out my values in tangible ways, including a commitment to being radically inclusive.

Language Matters

  • Which is why you’ll notice I use the term womxn with an x to intentionally include transgender womxn and non-binary folx (here again, the spelling of folx is specifically inclusive of all genders and marginalized groups).

Equitable Access

  • In addition to the free resources section, my services are offered at a sliding scale so that I can support womxn at all income levels while still allowing my business to thrive. Almost 50 percent of my client sessions are held at a sliding scale price, which is made possible by clients who are able to pay full price.
