You need to hear yourself talking.
You need to be heard
or have support to feel, think, understand, or know for sure.
You need help sorting out pieces of your life that need to be put together in a different way or have a missing piece added.
You need your inner fire lit again to face the things you find difficult to accept or do.
I listen, I sort, stoke the fire, I will move you through a process that guides you through your transitions.
I have been listening, supporting, and “stoking “ as consultant, coach, and counseling therapist since I was 22 years old having completed a 2-year Master of Counseling degree.
Since then, I have accumulated a lifetime of experience facilitating people in a variety of settings: initially, working in private counseling practice, running women’s empowerment groups, and then as a consultant in public schools, helping teachers unleash their creativity in supporting their students to become more self-aware and empowered learners.
Additionally, I have spent years working with sales and educational businesses; training and coaching teams of people to stay motivated and learn the interpersonal tools to help them serve others more effectively.
Now, I co-own an international education company, the School of Connected Riding, that helps people and horses learn to become better partners, as well as training teachers to be effective and diplomatic in their work with others.
My main craft, and special gift, is tapping into my clients’ underlying needs and unseen narrative that needs to be brought to light. This is like chipping away at a rock to find the gem within that we all possess and deserve to reveal in order to live empowered and authentic lives. And, this only occurs when there is sufficient mental and emotional safety for undertaking this experience.
My favorite book as a child was the The Churkendoose (a little character who was part chicken, turkey and goose) whose mantra was “It depends on how you look at things.” I believe this helped to shape my viewpoint early on!
I am passionate about being with people through the sometimes challenging, murky, or lonely times that require someone to bear witness and lend a seasoned hand. I want to join you there.
I would love to guide you to yourself in your personal place of power. Although this can be a challenging process of awakening, the transitions are as easy as taking one small step at a time.
