chucks with arrowsDoes taking care of yourself feel selfish?

Do your needs always seem to get pushed to the bottom of your to-do list?

Does the phrase “me time” make you laugh uncontrollably?

Do you wish you were surrounded by more positive energy in your life?

Are you tired of pretending that your life is perfect?

Whether you’re just getting started on your self-care journey, or find yourself wavering between commitment and inconsistency, you might need a little help.

Where you see challenges, I see possibilities.

Have you been putting your own needs last for so long that you don’t even know what you need? Are you clinging to your habits (even the unhealthy ones) because it feels easier than changing your familiar routines?

Let’s face it, investing time in ourselves feels a little selfish sometimes, especially if we were taught at an early age to care for others first–even if it comes at the expense of our own health.

But that’s exactly what makes self-care so important. Caring for ourselves properly actually enhances our ability to love and care for others. We have to refill our own cup before we can fill the cups of others.

And my guess is that’s why you’re here.

If you’re feeling ready to make some changes, but aren’t sure where to start, you’re in the right place.

Uppward: A Multidimensional Self-Care Program

Based on the concepts outlined in my book Uppward: A Self-Care System for Purposeful Living (Amazon Associate link), the Uppward program was developed to help you identify your key focus areas, design fun experiments to better understand what exactly refills your cup, and then build a flexible and sustainable self-care plan that has the ability to grow and expand as your life evolves.

This program includes:

  • Six (6) 45-minute design sessions with Stacy, conducted by phone or Zoom conference every other week over the course of 3 months. (Scheduling instructions will be emailed after purchase.)
  • Discounts on self-care workshops and events.
  • A VIP membership to the Living Upp Community, which grants you access to exclusive resources and premium discounts on products and services from our partner network.

Get Started

The Uppward program uses a 3-Dimensional process to help clients create a personal self-care plan that supports their unique goals and life vision.


First, we’ll explore the 8 Dimensions of self-care, assessing how your current lifestyle habits are supporting (or undermining) your overall well-being. My job is to listen carefully to your words, ask insightful questions that help you identify gaps, and then determine your key focus areas. Your job is to remain open, be honest about your fears and struggles, and commit to doing the work. (I promise, it’s fun work!)


During future sessions, we’ll begin creating your personal self-care plan by designing experiments that help you explore which activities best support your life. This is where you get to flex your creative muscles and open your mind to some unusual ideas. (It’s my absolute favorite part of the process!)


This is where your experiments come to life! It’s where your passion and energy come together to spark real change. It’s here that you build the confidence and momentum that eventually become new habits. And while you’re busy doing the work, I’ll be here to help you stay accountable to your commitments, and offer suggestions and encouragement along the way.

What to Expect


Change is a process. Like most things in life, what you get out of it depends on what you’re willing to put into it.

As your self-care designer, I’m committed to helping you stay focused on what is working rather than what isn’t, but it’s up to you to make the final decisions about what is right for you.

I’m your partner, not a medical provider, which means that I do not diagnose or treat medical conditions. During the course of our work together, it’s quite possible that we’ll uncover some things that may need to be addressed by a medical professional. If and when those situations arise, I’ll refer you to a specialist in that area. In general, all medical-related concerns and questions should be directed to your health care provider.

In an effort to support my own self-care needs, I do limit the number of clients I work with at any given time. It’s my commitment to you to be fully present, supporting and encouraging you to the best of my abilities.
