Once upon a time, a woman of a certain age got up at 2 AM. She wouldn’t call herself a writer, but she picked up a pen and the words just started to flow…
You are a hero! You have sacrificed yourself for your family and the greater good. You are the wind beneath their wings.
You strive to do everything right. You are responsible, competent, creative, knowledgeable, and passionate. You are a rock.
Secretly, however, you fear that you’re not smart enough. You worry that you will always be mediocre. No one will ever really see you and understand how hard you’ve fought and how much you’ve built.
In spite of it all, you are a hero.
So much of your self worth is derived from being there for others. You were put here to nurture, support, and make things right.
And yet, there’s a nagging fear that there is something you’re missing.
You fear you’ll never find complete the puzzle of your life. If anyone stopped long enough to ask you what you really wanted, you would say you are looking to make peace with yourself.
You value kindness and compassion because you know that’s what our world needs. You may despair because you often don’t receive the same kind of support in return. You forget to ask.
All too often, you go it alone.
Deep down, you believe that you are more powerful than anyone could possibly imagine. But what would being powerful look like? What about everyone who relies on you, how would they react? What about the woman you promised to be? What might change if you used your power to find that missing piece and you made it your mission to love your life and make an impact?
Oh, but then the doubt creeps in. There’s that terrible voice that cries “You are out of step and out of style. No one wants you and no one gives a damn!”
Wait! You know that is not true. You’re more powerful than that shadow. You know how valuable you have been to others. You have held and cared and nurtured so much.
You’ve proved yourself a hero to so many. Now it’s your turn to turn inward and discover your true path and become your own hero in your own conscious journey.
This is my story. This is your story. This is our shared journey back to ourselves.
Alright, I admit it, the heroine isn’t plucked from some fairytale. That’s my story and those are my struggles. And I know that those are your struggles too.
You are not alone. I know what it is like to feel exhausted, stuck, grieving, and afraid. I’ve been to the dark core of these experiences and I returned with a mission: I am here to help you to feel better, do less, and get more of what you want from your life – now and in the years ahead of you.
I have been a Marriage and Family Therapist, Certified Life Coach, and Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist for over thirty years. I’ve been privileged to support many, many people through the journey of life and I’ve travelled my own rugged path along the way. I was married for 34 years until my husband passed away from cancer. I’ve been a caregiver for a parent and I survived a serious illness too. Now, I am a mother to three grown children and the various pets they have left in my care.
Through it all, I have had a blast with my fellow humans. I have learned that I don’t have to be perfect, that having feelings does not mean that I am weak, that I can reach out to others for support and be supported by them, and that each moment has the potential to be deeply joyful – as long as I pay attention.
Work with me.
I strive to provide a safe, non-judgmental, compassionate space to help you discover what you need to heal and grow. I offer one-on-one life coaching and hypnotherapy programs via the phone and through secure video conferencing wherever you are in the world.
