Queen of the Pivot TM
Certified Life Coach
Podcast Host

I fell in love with coaching when I hired a coach for myself.  As a veteran school counselor, I was feeling overwhelmed with my career and was burnt out by the day-to-day demands of my school setting.  I knew it was time for a change, but I was feeling very stuck.  Through my sessions with my coach, I was able to get back in touch with myself, my values, and my strengths.  Through reflective inquiry, my coach assisted me in re-framing my circumstances and focusing on my desires so I could move towards a plan to change careers.  It's not that I haven't had big transitions before, but the difference this time, was that I had a helper to hold space for me as I navigated through the muck and into a space of light and direction.

I wish I had had a coach several years ago when I came out later in life and, ultimately, went through a divorce from a 15 year marriage.  When I first started to sift through my feelings, I felt very alone and vulnerable.  Even with therapy, I struggled to understand myself and be understood.  When I found other women who had come out later in life, I was able to rest a little, knowing that others had and were having similar experiences.  Now, knowing what I do of coaching, I believe it would have been immensely helpful to partner with a  coach who would give me the space to navigate the vulnerable journey into authenticity as a queer woman.

Woman by the Water
Everybody deserves to live life authentically.  I believe that having an expert who is trained to listen and reflect as you examine yourself is invaluable.  I believe that we are our own experts and that magic happens when we take the time to focus on ourselves and clarify our goals and dreams.  I believe that growth never stops and in the power of the pivot.

Love, compassion, honesty, gratitude, and authenticity. I'm about taking ownership and responsibility for yourself.  I'm about science and spirit, fact and intuition, the magic in the mundane.
