 The Empowered Women's Circle 

Dr. Hansen's personal invitation:

Welcome to The Empowered Women's Circle, a community that celebrates and honors women for their wholeness, authenticity, brilliance, and beauty. Led by Obstetrician & Gynecologist Dr. Hansen, our circle is an inspiring space for conversations and connections that delve into topics that everyone needs to know but are often left unspoken.

Join us in strengthening your body, calming your mind, soothing your soul, and attuning to your body's wisdom. Your body is the gateway to holistic health, hormone balance, and a wellspring of energy, pleasure, and joy – all sourced from within.

Women are balancing so much right now...

We are the center of our families.

We are working towards or at the height of our professional careers.

We are holding the 'bigness' of what's going on in the world.


Post-pandemic life that has merged work and home in unprecedented ways. These changes make it even more challenging to find balance, positivity and possibility. Yet that is exactly what we are being called to do.

You may be feeling:

  • tired and overwhelmed
