I'm a social scientist who helps people break out of the invisible traps and make whole-life changes easily and naturally.

I collapsed on the floor, got into child’s pose and said “I can’t do it.  I just can’t do this anymore.  I think I need to pull the plug on everything.” And I was thinking to myself, “I think I might just need to shut down my whole entire business.”

Life changed very suddenly in March 2020.  It was super intense and it brought about new challenges.

I kept trying to deal with it but found myself authentically below the line. I was out of integrity with myself, my family, and my team.

I was unwilling to break agreements with myself but I was also unwilling to fulfill those same agreements. It was causing me stress – lots of stress.

In the episode, Getting Back into Integrity with Clear Agreements on my podcast Allowed I share my story of being in drama and what I did to overcome it.

If you have fallen out of integrity or broken agreements in some areas of your life you too can regain balance. It all starts with being a little more gentle with yourself.


Today’s episode gets a little personal when Caneel shares her own internal struggles that almost made her decide to throw in the towel on her entire business. Her story sheds light on what most leaders have to deal with at some point in their journeys and she also shares how she overcame being “below the line” in the Drama Triangle by being honest with where she was at and how she was feeling. Leading by example, Caneel re-established clear agreements with her family, her team, and most importantly, with herself, so she could come back into integrity and lead from presence by being “above the line” in how she operates her business and her life.
