Live a life of passion, purpose and strength, without the burnout.
After years of working with creative visionaries, I’ve noticed a few recurring themes.
Of all the things that need to be taken care of - home, business, family, friends, clients - you tend to put yourself at the bottom of this list. You force yourself to do more, achieve higher, double results, and check ALL the boxes on an endless to-do list. You’ve done this so long that you often forget why you started this process to begin with.
When the forest finally appears through the trees, you notice things are off key. You search in all the books, programs, workshops, webinars, any other outside sources you can get your hands on for answers. Then, you piece together larger, loftier, more audacious goals than the ones you already failed to achieve.
Do me favor?
Stop beating yourself up. Stop stressing yourself out. Stop judging yourself for not being done. Stop comparing yourself to other people because they are mostly faking it, anyway. What if I told you that if you got off of the freaking hamster wheel, and treated yourself with as much kindness and care as you do everyone else, you would achieve more? Sounds crazy, right?
Well...a little mindfulness about your work and your life, can go a long, long way.
That’s how I can support you in finding the space to grow. Sometimes this “coaching”concept can be made out to seem wayyyyy more complex than it needs to be. If you don’t know where your chakras are, which mantras to chant, or how to “manifest your dreams” - you might feel a little left out. It can feel exclusive. Worse yet, if you don’t consider yourself a very “spiritual” person and are skeptical of those ideas, you might think that this whole process is a lil too fluffy, too esoteric, too “woo-woo” for you.
Let me make it plain. Through coaching you can:
Expand your creativity
Make clearer decisions
Communicate more effectively
Manage and even prevent stress
Increase self awareness
Improve work performance
Enhance interpersonal relationships
Set and achieve meaningful goals
And you can do it all without beating yourself up or working yourself into the ground.
What makes my coaching different?
First of all, I’m not trying to be your guru. I don’t want you to envy me or my lifestyle. I do not want you to think that I'm some magical expert who can or will tell you what to do, think, or feel. Blegh.
YOU know what’s right for you. Be your own guru.
For coaching to have any meaningful effect that lasts past the end of a phone call, it has to be a co-creative relationship - that means you have to SHOW UP. My job is to turn into what’s happening, take a look from five thousand feet, and ask a ton of questions to provoke you into action. But you gotta do the work.
Together, we’ll create shifts in your mindset that lead to transformative change. While quick fixes aren’t the primary goal in coaching or life, sometimes they happen. My clients typically have immediate insights that impact how they move through the world right away - at work, with family, in business, and in friendships.
I’ve been told that what really makes me different is my no-bullshit approach. There’s no fluff here; no canned responses or spiritual one-liners that will make you feel like mayyyyybe I just said something deep, but you don’t really know what it means. Nah. I just give it to you straight. We’ll do some work, and it’ll get uncomfortable - but you know what… tell it to a caterpillar. They’ll assure you the discomfort is just what growth feels like. Sometimes you’ll love me for it and sometimes, well… you’ll love me later.
A mirror for your blind spots
I learned a new perspective to see my work from on a recent trip to India. I introduced myself as a “coach” to a few Hindi speaking friends there. Right away they went to work on an appropriate term in their beautifully nuanced language. What they came up with was “aaina-walla” which roughly translates to “one who mirrors”. I was stunned to tears. These two, who I’d met only hours before, gave me words for my work that sang to my heart. A mirror so that you can see your blind spots. A mirror to reflect back the best parts of yourself. A mirror to show you the way through a perspective you wouldn’t have otherwise seen.
Each person is uniquely crafted to view the world through the lens of their individual experiences, values, principles, and perspectives - and so each coaching relationship is too. We have real conversations, and make space for you to show up as your authentic, creative, messy, brilliant, wild, and crazy self.
Yeah, I’ve got a few ideas on how this life thing works, but when we talk, I will leave my preconceived ideas at the door and show up open, present, and un-attached to any expectation of what you should or should not do.
That’s what makes coaching different from having a really smart or helpful friend. A good thing about your friends is that they already know who you are… but sometimes that means they aren’t yet ready for who you’ll become. That’s where I come in.
No bias, no judgment, no bullshit.
Schedule a free consultation.
Coaching begins with a free consultation so that you can determine if my style matches your needs. It’s a persuasion-free zone, no sales, and no pushy tactics. All that I ask is that you only use my time if you have seriously considered hiring a coach and the associate costs.
If we vibe, then we can work together for a flat rate $650 per month.
I donate 25% of my time to a “scholarship fund” for clients who may not There are no complex application processes or hoops to jump through; all you have to do is ask.
