We live in a culture that glorifies and rewards overwork, stress and busyness — all of which can leave us feeling empty, exhausted, or even chronically ill. I support mid-life professionals like you who have had enough of the status quo. Together we will work to connect you with your inner wisdom and create a life that is aligned with what is most important to you, your personal metric for success.
Here are some ways to know if you could benefit from my support:
You long for change
You feel stuck
You are chronically overworked
You have trouble saying no
You want to minimize your life
You are fatigued or chronically ill
You are a perfectionist
We are likely a good fit for each other if one or more on the list below sounds like you!
You are committed to creating change in your life, willing to do hard work and take risks, and willing to be held accountable.
You believe that sustainable change comes from the inside.
You are deeply inspired by nature.
You enjoy playfulness, creativity, and depth.
You love to bring seemingly disparate ideas together.
You are driven and thoughtful.
You are turned off by busyness as a status symbol.
Cultivating right livelihood is different for everyone. Past clients have discovered a new calling, tapped into their community at work to stem overwork and have more intimate time with family, deeply owned their sense of purpose that serves as a guiding north star, created ways of working that provides a regular income and time with their family, and realized they don't have to go back to school to get what they want — just to name a few.
Here's how it works: Contact me via the web-form below to set up a time to talk on the phone, and I’ll also send you an agreement for you to fill out before our session. I’ll ask you set aside approximately 75 minutes for our session, and if we mutually feel I can help you connect to your personal power after the first 20 minutes of the interview, we can move right into our first session or schedule our first session. We’ll discuss payment and signing the agreement at that time as well. If we aren’t a fit, I won’t pressure you.
COACHING, PSYCHOTHERAPY, AND CONSULTING: WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?
Typically the difference between a coach and a therapist is that coaches focus on moving forward toward a desired change, and psychotherapists focus on healing the wounds of the past, with both practices utilizing knowledge of human behavior, motivation, behavioral change, and interactive counseling techniques. People who seek coaching are generally in good health and want to deepen their relationship with their inner guidance and move forward accordingly. In contrast, psychotherapy is a health care service people seek out to restore their emotional selves back to health, and frequently reimbursable by insurance. Consultants are experts in a particular field who you hire to help you solve specific problems. A coach will never presume to be an expert on your life.
Coaches are not subject to government oversight. As a commitment to my clients and my integrity I keep my accreditation up-to-date and adhere to the International Coaching Federation's Code of Ethics.
