What’s it like to be you?
Have a seat. Take a deep breath and a moment to gently check in with yourself. How are you really doing? Life is busy, and it’s easy to forget where we are and what’s happening in us.
You matter. The story of your life matters. How is yours going?
Let’s talk. I’ll listen – not just to what you’re saying, but also to what’s underneath. Is there a new story wanting to be told?
I am a reflective, firm, gentle and fearless ICF certified coach. I’ll ask thought-provoking questions and make timely observations, creating intentional conversation that invites you to a deeper understanding of yourself. I’ll be your ally, and together we can release the old stories or reshape them so they serve you better, freeing you to live into your new story – for your best good and for the good of those you love and lead.
While I’m happy to coach a broad range of topics, here are some of my favorites:
Befriending Your Creativity: It’s in you. You know it is. I know it is. Let’s coax that part of you out of hiding and invite it to come enjoy the sunshine. I offer a safe and open coaching space for playful creative growth.
Bringing Your Creative Project to Life: You have a specific creative project to complete and would like coaching support in the creative process.
Foster and Adoptive Parents: You give and give and then give some more, as you love and raise your children. The ongoing challenges can take a toll, most often on your own self-care. I am an adoptive parent. I help lead a foster/adoptive parent support group. I get it. Let’s do some coaching so you can care for yourself more effectively and deeply. For you.
Moms: Children are forever pieces of our heart walking around outside of us, which can make motherhood an emotional rollercoaster. There is a time to ride with our kids and also a time to sit on the bench and watch. And there’s the rollercoaster in our heads too – the stories we tell ourselves that can snowball in challenging ways. I help moms discern how to successfully navigate the many stages of motherhood.
