Florien and Dr. Valerie talk about her bestselling book, “Patriarchy Stress Disorder: The Invisible Inner Barrier to Women’s Happiness and Fulfillment”, her vision and how the saying ‘Doe maar normaal’ meaning ’ doesn’t help Dutch women to thrive and show up as the powerful women they can be.

The thriving experience helps women leaders who have heard the calling to fully embody their power–the power of their gifts, financial, sexual, personal–so they can create (and fully enjoy!) a life designed by your personal and collective desires.


Dr. Valerie Rein, a Russian raised American woman, has discovered Patriarchy Stress Disorder (PSD) and created the only science-backed system for helping women achieve their ultimate success, happiness, and fulfillment by healing the intergenerational trauma of oppression.

Her cutting-edge programs have helped thousands of women shift from survival to thriving and master the game of “How good can it get?” in their work and personal lives.
