Unlock the power of your intuitive sensitivity
This ongoing group meets 2x a month to practice tools that set and manage your energy
Open for new members to join 2x a year - check back in mid-September 2023
As an empath, you’re wired to sense the energy and emotions of the people around you.
That can make you an incredibly attentive listener, a compassionate friend, and a trusted advisor.
But it can also be easy to absorb others' emotions—even confusing them for your own—and that can have detrimental effects on your well-being.
Many empaths report:
High levels of anxiety, stress, and trouble sleeping
Feeling exhausted and overwhelmed by the energy they sense in other people
Feeling like they’re somehow “different” from “normal” people
Feel overwhelmed, overstimulated, or exhausted by energy . . .
Are never quite sure if the feeling you’re experiencing is your own or someone else’s . . .
Struggle to create boundaries that protect your energy . . .
Your intuition and sensitivity can feel more like weaknesses than gifts.
But when you learn to:
translate the messages from your intuitive sensitivity
recognize where feelings are coming from: what’s you, what’s someone else, and what’s something else
create strong, protective boundaries
It’s then that you can begin to embrace your sensitivity as a strength—not a stressor.
I’m Natalie, your mentor.
When I was working at a tech company, surrounded by stressed-out co-workers, I escaped to the gym on my lunch hour. . . and not because I loved the treadmill.
By noon every day, I felt overwhelmed from sensing the stress, anger, and anxiety present in the building. I didn’t know what to do with it. Working out was the only way I could think to release some of the energy that was weighing me down.
The gym helped, but I needed a longer-lasting solution. So I started to study energy.
For a dozen years, two parallel paths transformed my life while I maintained my business career: Studying under my spiritual mentor, Dawn Eagle Woman, and learning to understand my psychic nature with training and practice.
Now, 27 years later, I teach other intuitively aware people, using what’s worked for me to help them create a sustainable practice that allows them to live fully as their authentic selves—without sacrificing their mental or physical health.
You've tried so many things to relieve stress.
Whether you’ve gone to therapy, spent time in nature, meditated, worked out, or taken yoga classes, you know the importance of showing up for yourself.
Now, eliminate the stress with new energy boundaries.
Through Empath Strength Training live classes, you’ll not only learn tools to unlock your intuitive gift, but you’ll also have the built-in accountability to show up and use them.
During the twice-monthly, live online classes, you’ll learn how to:
- Identify energy “leaks” and reclaim your personal energy
- Build healthy boundaries that create safe space for you and your own energy
- Listen to (and trust) your intuition
- Clear and reset energy in your home
- Own your spiritual gifts, empowering all that you do
- Be conscious of your own energy field
- Remove energy blocks in yourself
- Stay centered when the energy is wacky around you
- Protect yourself from others’ negative energy
- Discern: Is it me or is it someone else? (and what to do about it)
And other topics related to boundary setting, clearing energy, discernment, energetic seniority, and psychic sight.
“These tools have been a lifesaver!””
With back-to-back Zoom calls plus the craziness in the world, being able to find focus and center quickly in order to enter all calls with 100% attention and not feel drained has been the key to ending the day energized and restored.
“Empath Strength Training has given me new,
“For the first time, I understand myself.”
For the first time in my 42 years of life,
It is as if I am entering into Hogwarts. I'm so excited to continue practicing.
With the Empath Strength Training membership, you’ll receive:
Each class session includes:
Add healing to your monthly practice!
Upgrade to receive a monthly Group Reading + Healing session with your Empath Strength Training membership.
During each group reading + healing session, you’ll receive a healing related to each question asked in the group.
Similar to my private sessions, during each group reading + healing session:
Put self-care first, Group Reading and Healing Session are on the second Sunday of each month for 2 hours starting at 10am Pacific/ 1pm Eastern / 6pm Greenwich.
In the group format, you learn about yourself and have an opportunity to ask a question with regard to the specific theme you’re wondering about—whether life, love, health, business, or something else. You also gain surprising insights based on the questions that the other attendees ask, too.
“Personally, I received healing from almost everyone's question.”
“In the group reading with Natalie, we removed possibly the biggest program or conditioning that wasn’t allowing me to stand for my own life, for my own self-love, the ability to trust the knowing of what I feel in my body.”
“I was surprised that I felt something in common with everyone’s questions and the wave of healing.”
This group only opens twice each year next in mid-September.
To hold space for current members in the way that best serves them and their energy, this program opens twice per year!

Frequently Asked Questions
How much time do I need to set aside for Empath Strength Training?
The live classes meet twice a month, for an hour each session. You can attend live or watch the replay, which is always made available on the membership site!
Beyond that, I encourage you to spend 5 minutes each morning setting your energy. This can be done in the shower, while making breakfast, walking the dog, or other “mindless” morning activities—no need to set aside special time for it!
I’ve been working on myself for a long time, but I’m still not where I want to be. Can this program really make me feel better?
The most important thing I can stress here is—the work works, if you show up.
Many of my students have dedicated themselves to personal practices like yoga, therapy, meditation. Many are even professional healers, psychotherapists, doctors! They come to Empath Strength Training because other practices haven’t taught them how to effectively set energy boundaries and integrate their sensory input as empaths.
Empath Strength Training is designed to help you create a sustainable energy practice that can heal the disruptions in your nervous system. Come to class, learn the tools, and dedicate 5 minutes a day to setting your energy.
My student Kendal says:
“I really didn’t think I would ever have the bandwidth to do the work for Empath Strength Training, but I can see now how it has saved my life. It’s basically medically important for me that I do the work once in the morning per day before anything else. It’s really the only thing getting me through this time.”
I’m not sure if I’m an empath. Is this for me?
If you’re wondering whether or not you’re an empath . . . then yes, Empath Strength Training is probably for you!
Most of us have spent our lives being told we’re “just sensitive” or even that our insights are flat-out wrong. For some of us, ignoring our energy awareness became a survival skill.
We’ve either been so conditioned to not notice what our energy is telling us, we’ve lost trust in our intuition. That’s really where the stress and anxiety starts, with that distrust. We’re distressing ourselves—mentally and physically.
So if you’re doubting whether or not you’re energy-sensitive, you probably are. And I’ll be happy to help you rediscover your intuition and sensitivity through Empath Strength Training.
How do I know this is the right place for me?
Are exhausted after spending time with angry, sad or needy people
Feel other people’s emotions
Are ever unsure about why you’re feeling a certain emotion
Struggle to set boundaries and find yourself zapped or taking on other people’s feelings
Self-isolate to manage your energy sensitivity
. . . then Empath Strength Training is for you.
There are some specific topics I’d love to learn. How can I find out if you’re going to teach about them?
If there are particular topics you’re interested in, let me know! I accept requests for class topics and design content around them.
In the past, students have requested tools for co-dependence/addiction, what to do when you’re the one who caused harm, how to communicate with their spirit guides, and other themes.
You can email questions or ask them in class throughout your membership. In this way, the program and its content can be quite customizable!
When do classes take place?
Live classes take place on Tuesday evenings (6pm PT / 9pm ET) twice each month. If you aren’t able to attend sessions live, you can find both video and audio recordings, plus class notes, on the membership site.
What if I miss a session live?
Life happens! I’m here to support you with replays and class notes, which are posted within 4 hours of each class.
I sometimes struggle with things like meditation because I can’t see pictures in my mind / can’t visualize. Will this work for me?
We all process senses differently. In Empath Strength Training, I provide awareness and support for not only those who see images, but also for those who feel sensations in their body, hear information, “just know it,” or experience other sensory input during the exercises.
Energy responds to attention! And shifting it starts with imagination. You don’t need to “see” it to create change. In EST, you’ll learn to use your imagination in the context of how sensory data comes to you, whether auditory, tactile, or something else. I’ll show you how to use your own strengths and natural processing systems to put these energy tools to work!
Is this a meditation course?
Not really. The goal of meditation is generally to empty one’s mind. Here, in Empath Strength Training, we’re focusing on directing our mind, giving it a specific goal that will help us protect our energy and use it effectively.
What if a tool doesn’t work for me—or I just don’t like a tool very much?
I invite you to take what works for you and let go of what doesn’t as you tune in to your energy and intuition. I’ve done the same in my 25+ years studying energy and energy sensitivity! Feel free to incorporate the exercises that resonate with you and set anything else aside.
"Energy sensitives, also known as empaths, often have navigated life not understanding their true nature.
Many have heard the whispers of their inner guidance but don't know how to translate it or what to do with the information.
The messages from their body have long been disregarded, and they've often experienced intuitive hints as something ‘wrong’ with them.
Relearning trust for an empath means understanding that a knot in the stomach or anxiety for ‘no reason’ is in fact an empathic sensitivity trying to get their attention."
