My clients want to know one thing: "What are the keys to getting your life, your work, and your purpose in order?"

  • Energy:    The capacity for action. If you're alive, you have energy.

  • Power:    Energy with an agenda. It is focused energy.

  • Choice:   The greatest power you have in this lifetime. It determines how and where you focus, manage, and direct power. Even when you feel you don't have power, you always have choice. Therefore, you always have power.

  • Authenticity:    The result of choices made through constructive and congruent thoughts and feelings.

However, many of us were taught it's not OK to show our true feelings. We're taught to "stay strong," "keep it together," "don't feel bad," "stay busy," "don't rock the boat," "just give it time," and so on.

Ignoring or denying our true feelings — no matter the reason — diminishes our authenticity, which limits our power to make wise choices, and drains our energy. We try to bury feelings like grief, sadness, frustration, guilt, loneliness, resentment, overwhelm, apathy, or worry, and hope they go away and no one notices. Unfortunately, the buried feelings come out in other ways, disguised as burn-out, fatigue, pressure, apprehension, stress, anxiety, disease, aggression, addiction, or isolation.

You can turn that around.

What To Do

As a teacher, speaker, writer, and coach, all of the work I do is rooted in the belief that life can be complex without being complicated. I provide you tools and skills to help you gain deeper understanding of the situations you find yourself in — whether at work, home, or in intense transition — and support you in taking action on the changes you see fit. I meet you where you are in any given moment, without a burdening expectation that you be different.

Together we help you find your lost energy, restore your power, make empowering choices in the moment, and step into your authenticity to live consciously with gratitude, joy, and passion. You can turn a cross to bear into a bridge to cross, and come out the other side.

I offer a mixture of services - all with the focus of supporting passionate knowledge seekers who want to find their own voice and their own path.

One-on-One Coaching
