Welcome to my website! I am delighted you are here.
A little bit about me, and my journey with Relationship & Lifestyle Coaching…
My journey with Relationship & Lifestyle Coaching began when I made a declaration to upgrade my way of being in relationship, with myself and with others. Prior to that moment, I had always experienced some kind of conflict in my relationships. It wasn’t the “fight with my partner” kind of conflict, it was more of an internal conflict. It was as if there was a part of me that was being hidden, edited, shut off, and shut down. I often felt stuck, like I was in a box I didn’t know to get out of; and although I didn’t like it, I wasn’t quite sure what to do about it. I was one of those, go-with-the-flow kind of girls, and I was okay with that, until I wasn’t.
The catalyst for my change was a result of an incredibly harsh and unpleasant relationship. You know, the relationship that you sort of know you’re not supposed to get into, and then you do, and then you stay in it, and all kinds of shit breaks loose. I was in one of those. And, when it was over, I vowed to never go back. I vowed to never settle for anything less than what I truly desired in my heart, regardless of what others thought or felt. I realized then, that I was about to embark on a journey of living a new kind of life, surrounded by amazing people, creating and cultivating relationships that felt incredibly aligned with my body, mind, and spirit. It was during that fertile period of listening to my heart, asking for what I truly desired, and allowing the Universe to respond, that I met my soul mate, life partner, and best friend.
It’s funny, because the day we call our anniversary is the day he got me on the phone to have a conversation about our attraction. The conversation was amazing! It felt to me like the Universe was presenting a new way of being in relationship that I had never considered possible before, and now, this guy that I had known and trusted for years, was inviting me in. I was ecstatic. We both saw the potential for a new kind of relationship, a relationship based on a deep sense of presence, connection, and communication, with ourselves and with each other. I can honestly say I’m the happiest I have ever been. I feel so free to be me, and I feel so blessed to have a partner who supports me in being my authentic self, following my desires. I am equally delighted to support my partner in doing the same. It truly is a dream come true!
So how and why did I become a Relationship & Lifestyle Coach?
I have always loved working with people, teaching and supporting them in making positive changes in their life. I’ve been in numerous teaching roles and capacities for the past 20 years, and have always considered myself a natural born teacher, coach, and guide. It was during a two year coaching and apprenticeship program, that I learned how to help people break through limiting beliefs and patterns that kept them stuck in unhealthy relationships with themselves and with others. I also learned how to help people take charge of their life in more empowering ways, learning new behaviors to cultivate new experiences in every area of their life. This training, coupled with my amazing relationship, led me to consider blending the two. The result, the creation of a coaching practice geared towards helping others cultivate more presence, communication and connection in their life and in their relationships. By presence I mean a deep sense of knowing who you are on the inside, and aligning with it to create a meaningful life. By communication, I mean to learn and practice effective communication tools to help you express yourself in your life and in your relationships, in healthy ways. When we get really clear with who we are, what we desire, and how to communicate those desires with ourselves and with the world, we automatically feel more connected, more alive, more free to be who we are in every area of our life. That sounds pretty good to me 🙂
One thing that fascinates me about my coaching practice is that I continuously get to learn more about myself with every client. I get to share my experience of what it’s like to be me; to show up, to be vulnerable, to speak my truth, and to live authentically from the heart, and hold space for others to do the same. It’s an amazing positive feedback loop, where everyone benefits, all the time. A continuous flow of growth and connection, possibility and renewal, joy and love.
I feel grateful for what I do, grateful to know my life experience has value. I see how the work I do is helping others make positive changes in their life and in their relationships.
Thank you for reading. I look forward to working with you 🙂
