Living Whole YOU Coaching
Change can be challenging!
I want to shine a light on the confusion that comes when your “purpose” moves out of your house, or some other life event causes your routine and lifestyle to change. The struggle is real when we feel grief and mourn the loss of the interactions and lifestyle we created with our family. We have poured our heart and soul into our kids, our spouse, our career and now we aren't sure what's next. Maybe the kids are moving out, or our parents are moving in? Maybe we've experienced a breakup or great loss? Maybe change seems to be happening "to us" and we feel lost.
The emptiness and uncertainty we feel is real. Not only is it a physical emptiness, but even more difficult is the emotional emptiness we can be left with. I want to help. Let's visit one-on-one so I can learn about you and provide you with a mini plan to get started on a path of self-discovery. Together, lets identify and design a path for YOU so you are eager and excited to get out of bed each day and thrive!
A Results-Driven Mentoring Method
The good news is that there are transitioning tools that can help us rediscover what lights us up and re-ignites our passion for life. I am committed to helping women transition quickly from grief to joy and fulfilling contribution.
A Community of Connection and Support
We share frequent opportunities to meet with like-minded women forging the same path to their next and best chapters. We outline a systemized plan of action to find new friends in your area, connect, and build rapport. We provide tools to help you select Tribe-worthy women to grow deeper with to create your own circle of support, your Tribe.

Why Not? Why now?
1. YOU WANT TO BE TOLD WHAT TO DO.
I am not here to tell you what to do. I see you as creative, resourceful, and whole on your own and I'm here to help you believe in your own intuition. I offer curious questions, new perspectives, and challenges that honor your goals and what you need to live your best life. I will give you valuable resources and tools to add to your own tool belt but am not here to tell you what to do.
2. YOU BELIEVE YOUR LIFE IS “GOOD ENOUGH.”
Sometimes we are perfectly content with the way our life looks, and that’s awesome! We should practice contentment, but it shouldn’t be at the expense of our dreams. Convincing yourself that overall, your life is “good enough” can be a huge killer of dreams. I am not here to force you into dissatisfaction so that you can change but rather celebrate the life that you have and cheer you on toward more!
3. YOU HATE CHANGE.
Life is all about feeling comfortable, am I right? The latest gadgets are created to make life easier. We want our day-to-day lives to stay the same because they feel good and safe. The only “change” we accept is improvements to what we already have. If change means that life’s going to be hard for a while or even painful, we want nothing to do with it. But when it comes to growing in a positive, life enhancing way, I may ask you to take risks! I will challenge you to change and go straight into the uncomfortable. I encourage change not to cause problems, but because that’s where the transformation happens — and that’s our goal in working together!
4. YOU DON’T WANT TO PAY.
We pay for gas to make our cars run. We pay for beauty treatments (hair, skin, nails) to help us feel good on the outside. We spend money on entertainment for our minds to enjoy. And some of us even pay more for healthy food, supplements, and gym memberships to keep our bodies in shape. All of these things are good and important, but why is it that we won’t pay for a life coach?
I know some have said that they just go to family and friends for advice, but this HuffPost article challenges that idea:
“Would you ask your friend to fix the plumbing in your home? Would you ask your spouse to teach you to speak French? Not unless they were experts in those fields. So why does it seem normal to rely on our families, friends, and community members to help us achieve our very unique, authentic life goals? Why do we believe that if we don’t find support and help with our goals from those around us then either we aren’t worthy of our goals or there is something wrong with our loved ones?”
Now, I’ll be the first to say I go to family and friends for advice, and I always will. But I have received value at a much higher level from a coach who is trained to see my strengths and ask me the right questions to transform the way I see life and show up in the world. They have pulled me out of holes I didn’t think had an exit and affirmed parts of me that I used to hide in shame.
For this, I will never hesitate to pay a coach because I see the value in myself and in the coaching process.
5. YOU DON’T WANT TO IMPROVE YOUR RELATIONSHIPS.
One of the biggest changes my clients experience is often found in their relationships. When they learn to love themselves for exactly who they were created to be, it’s a lot easier to love others! When they identify their inner strengths and weaknesses and their unique lens in which they see life, they learn to understand how everyone has been created differently. All this results in conversations with loved ones that had been avoided in the past, new understandings that result in forgiveness, and acceptance for family and friends’ differing strengths and weaknesses. If you would rather hold grudges or resentment towards loved ones, coaching may not be for you.
