I believe in the power of possibility- whether you are surviving, striving, or thriving, there is always more waiting for you.
THE POWER OF POSSIBILITY
I became a certified holistic life coach* to empower women to move forward into wholeness. I want you to see that you have options. I want you to know that it's okay to ask for help to find them. I used to think I had value only if I was able to do everything on my own. I've learned that human beings just aren't wired that way. We are meant to support and encourage each other. Everyone deserves to be seen, heard, and valued.
I know what it feels like to be burdened by shame, to never feel like I was enough. I wasted so much energy trying to be what I thought everyone else wanted me to be. I was critical of everyone, especially myself. In my 20's I committed myself to changing the trajectory of my life, whatever it took. With the help of some gifted facilitators and the support of friends and loved ones, I've uncovered a compassionate heart. I now know who I truly am apart from the expectations of others. I want you to find these things for yourself. By the way - since courage and fear can exist together, you don't have to let your apprehensions or insecurities stand in your way.
As a life learner, I feel passionate about self-awareness and personal growth. I believe in the power of possibility - whether you are surviving, striving, or thriving, there is always more waiting for you. I am energized when I get to collaborate with others to create amazing outcomes.
My curiosity-driven life (and moving a lot) has led me to work in several fields: retail, restaurant, commercial sales, teaching, administrative support, and publishing. I first discovered my love for coaching as a personal organizer, helping people declutter and bring order to chaotic lives.
Minnesota natives, my husband, Steve, and I have lived in several states and have just begun a new adventure in Grand Rapids, Michigan. This unexpected move has really tested my own grief recovery, renewal, reliance, and resilience skills. We go forward!
