What are your Core Desired Feelings?

This summer, every morning for about a month – I would get up long before the sun (and my kid) to work through Danielle LaPorte’s Desire Map workbook.¬†With a hot coffee mug in hand, I would read and reflect and write and erase and write again. I would put the book down as if I […]

Tis the Season for Feeling Expansive

Tis the Season for Feeling Expansive

What does it mean to feel expansive? There is a lot of talk about a “bigger life” around here. I’m a life coach, so I’m in the business of taking areas where you feel small and making them bigger. But I think it’s important to remember, especially as we shift into the winter season, that […]

Raising Funds for Puerto Rico

Raising Funds for Puerto Rico

The photo above is from a family trip to Puerto Rico a couple years ago. As you know, Hurricane Maria caused terrible destruction to Puerto Rico almost a month ago. The island is near and dear to my heart because much of my beautiful family (in-law) live there and it is the birthplace of the […]

Find Your Flow and SHINE In It.

Find Your Flow and SHINE In It.

It was school election time and the secretary position was calling my name. The first time I ran for student government didn’t end well for me. I came home, threw myself on my daybed sobbing and told my mom that I had lost. This memory of devastation and drama played repeatedly in the back of […]

When the news feed constricts your lungs, and the discourse keeps you up at night… remember that You are Love. When they obsess about who you are, but refuse to look in the mirror… remember that You are Love. When justice is entirely imbalanced, and the trail to equity is littered with unmerited privilege… remember […]

Stuck in the Story

Stuck in the Story

We’ve all got a story. We’ve all got something, or many things that have happened to us that messed us up. We’ve got people to blame and circumstances to re-hash and plot lines that we keep living over and over again. We’ve got crap that wasn’t ours to carry piled high on our fragile shoulders […]

You Are Creating Your Reality ~ Choose Your Vibes Wisely

Have you ever heard the idea that energy flows where intention goes? In other words, what you think about and what you believe to be true is actually creating your life around you. The vibes that you’re putting out are the vibes that you’ll get back. It’s a lot to chew on but it’s kind […]

Dear Control Freak…

Dear Control Freak…

Chaos and control are not your only options. Recently I heard it stated that people fear “letting go” or “giving up control” because they think that the opposite of control is chaos. Does that resonate with you? Do you tend to lean in, stomp on, or otherwise clench harder when things start to feel out […]

The Pause is Where the Action Happens

The Pause is Where the Action Happens

Sometimes I ask clients to describe their life in one word. Obviously, their life is far more complex than this, but their answers are telling. What is your one word? If you were to say, “busy”, I would not be surprised. There’s a rich history behind why “busy” is our default to the question, “how […]
