Why My Clients Make Progress Working With Me

2015-05-19T10:36:43+00:00

I used to feel like a victim. Like, all. the. time. I’ve always been intuitive, empathetic, compassionate, sensitive. What my family calls “tender-hearted.”  And I call a tender soul. I was born this way. And it made me different from my family.   The more they tried to “toughen me up” and teach me to [...]

Learning to Appreciate…You

2015-05-11T17:57:58+00:00

I’m a bit of a weeper.  Always have been.   Whenever I'm around real emotion- good, bad, love, anger, you name it- my eyes fill up with tears.  It's part of what makes me...me.   This part of me has been tricky over the years.  And has totally influenced my appreciation and acceptance of myself. [...]

What You’re Really Saying Goodbye to When You’re (finally) Able to Let Go

2015-05-04T12:20:34+00:00

  Goodbye’s can be hard.   Even when you’re ready to say goodbye.   Even when they lead to your purpose.   Which used to confuse me.   And make me wonder if I was making the wrong choice.  After reading The Alchemist I realize what’s really going on.   See, everything has a soul.  A [...]

Do You Edit Yourself?

2015-04-28T08:53:41+00:00

Last week was a big week for me.  A metamorphosis occurred, I’m pretty sure.   See, I’m fast approaching my goal of blogging once a week for a year.  I set this goal 48 (!!!) weeks ago because I wanted to find my voice.   And, when it comes to blog posts, it’s totally worked. [...]

This is Why Self-Care Routines Feel Like Such a Challenge

2015-04-14T09:11:48+00:00

If you’re anything like me you know in your head that good things come through repetition.   You know, practice.   And yet repetition/routines are so hard to get yourself to do. And even harder to stick to.     Like last week.... It was beautiful totally sunny spring day in Seattle.   I was [...]

How Goodbyes Lead You to Your Purpose

2015-04-06T17:34:00+00:00

For most of my life I sucked at goodbyes.   You’d think I’d be good at them since we moved 9 times before I graduated high school.  But, like all kids with abandonment issues, being forced to say goodbye over and over actually made it worse.   So it’s no surprise that I’ve recreated this [...]

Why You Shouldn’t Ask for Help

2015-03-31T12:17:08+00:00

OK, I started writing a blog post about when to ask for help.   I wanted to remind you how differently things go when we ask for help before we need it. You know,  when we have a plan + support system in place.   But it felt like total BS.   See, I'm working [...]

The Dark Side of Intuition: 4 Fears That Keep You Avoiding You

2015-03-17T12:38:37+00:00

I’ve always been intuitive.   I often know my friends are pregnant before they do. I’m a 20-Questions champ. And know when my hubby’s put the empty jar of peanut butter back in the fridge even before I’m home.   And I’d always just left it at this. A funny party-trick, if you will.   [...]

Why You FEEL Like You Aren’t Making Progress

2015-03-03T13:08:00+00:00

One of my fave parts of being a coach is reminding my clients exactly how far they’ve come. It’s so easy to downplay our own achievements. Pass ‘em off as coincidence, luck or deem ‘em not good enough.  An outside perspective (like mine) can be so helpful.  And so healing. So what gives? Why do we do this [...]

Are Your Wants Keeping You Stuck?

2015-02-24T14:59:17+00:00

My wants and I have been going through a major growing phase lately.  Major. I used to do this thing where I put all my wants into the same category.  Maybe you can relate? If I thought it, I called it a want. Didn’t matter if it was to marry Johnny Depp, attend grad school, swim in [...]
