Does this sound like you?


Are you tired of self-sabotaging patterns such as hiding, procrastinating or overpleasing?


Do you want to stop spending most of your time looking for love while continuously doubting and rejecting yourself?


Are you ready to rewrite your owner’s manual and become the self-empowered leader of your life?

The Empowerment Solution will help you to discover your authentic self, live with greater joy, purpose and confidence and learn to truly love and trust yourself

When you’re struggling with anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem, just keeping your emotions in check seems like a full-time job. Yet, what may hold you back in life even more are your survival patterns. Have you ever wondered why you make yourself invisible, procrastinate or please others to get their approval? Our subconscious employs six distinct survival patterns—the victim, the invisible, the procrastinator, the chameleon, the helper, and the dependent —to protect us from rejection, failure and hurt.

Short-term, hiding behind victimhood, denying ourselves to be seen or heard, putting off the tasks at hand, or over-giving and over-pleasing can give us a sense of safety or belonging. However, when we live “just to survive,” we become disconnected from our true selves and innate ability to live an empowered life of purpose, fulfillment, and self-reliant confidence.

Break free from self-sabotaging survival patterns and transform your life

In The Empowerment Solution, a step-by-step process that shows you how to break free from your avoider and pleaser survival patterns by engaging the part of the mind that created them in the first place: the subconscious.

Dr. Maya Novak, mindful healing expert and the author of Heal Beyond Expectations

The Empowerment Solution is such an insightful book.

“Right from the start a light went off inside, when I learned about anxiety being an inner compass that alerts us when we’re off our path. It makes perfect sense. I also found the chapter, The Key to Owning Your Hidden Gifts, very moving and profound. It truly helped me connect to the scared little boy in me. I lost my dad to cancer and that loss would’ve been much, much, harder for me had I not connected those fears into strengths. Dr. Friedemann and this book helped me do that."

Maurice Benard, Daytime Emmy Award Winning Actor on General Hospital, author of New York Times Bestseller Nothing General About It, and host of State of Mind podcast

“In this insightful and helpful book, Dr. Schaub offers far more than the standard techniques for dealing with fear and anxiety. He goes deeper and gets at the real causes of our discontent. Most importantly, Schaub provides solutions that reconnect us with ourselves, our power, and our fundamental ground.

Nancy Colier, author of The Emotionally Exhausted Woman and Can’t Stop Thinking
