Take a moment. Have a conversation that matters.
Time for reflection is rare in our busy world. And yet, “an unexamined life is not worth living.”, according to Socrates. We are shaped by the stories we have been told, as well as the ones we tell ourselves. If we pause and explore why we do what we do, we can learn what’s really important to us. We can live more aware, intentional lives.
Some stories are great, moving us powerfully in a positive direction. Others may have been helpful at one time, but are no longer. These might need some retooling – or maybe it is time to let them go.
Is there a gap between where you are and where you want to be? Are you curious in a new direction? Maybe it’s time to release an old story that no longer serves you and make room for something new. Or maybe you find yourself in an unexpected story. Coaching can support your confidence to find ways to walk well where you are, and to build courage as you step into what’s next.
What story do you long to tell? What do you want to create?
As your coach, I will be your companion as you find clarity about what’s really important to you. With wisdom and discernment, we’ll work with your stories, listening to all the invitation and challenge they offer. I’ll be your ally, and together we can release and reshape them to serve you better, freeing you to create a new story – for your best good and for the good of those you love and lead.
With a coaching style that is reflective, gentle, firm, and fearless, I will walk with you as your coach in whatever season of life you are in. Together, we can discern what will best support you there, and how you can step into what is next.
I also provide coaching for your specific creative project and your own creative process.
