Transformation in Transition

I support women and teens in transition through change: relationship, relocation, school, recovery, health, work, family, personal goals...

I provide Life Coaching to Women and Teens in Transition. Something in their life is changing and they need support, maybe a relationship, or they are moving, starting a new school,  or changing jobs or careers. Maybe their children are grown and moving away, they have a new health, mental health or developmental diagnosis,  or they are caring for a parent, partner, friend or child in one of these situations. I help shift to embracing the season of change and being truly present in the moment in order to fully explore what comes next, without being held back by the past. 

Let’s get to know one another…

My biggest strength is an ability to connect with my clients where they are at and walk with them through the messy middle of their journey. We all want to get from point A to point B. But the gaps, the empty space between, that is where the magic happens if we let it. That is where the path forward unfolds.

They say the cracks are where the light gets in.
But, what if, for me
the cracks are where my light breaks free?

Hands made calloused and strong by the work of love
crack open my chest reaching
into the beautiful mess.

They wring out my heart
the light seeping through fingers
running down wrists.

It puddles and pools like molten gold.
Like embers in a fire I nurture its glow.
My holy breath bringing the flame of light to life.

Kindling the Divine within me,
the flicker becomes a beam
breaking through the cracks in my armor.

Bursting forth.
Into my life.
Into the world.

Endlessly expansive and embodied all at once.
The exquisite pain of it becomes my joy.
My healing becomes the world’s healing.

Perhaps this is my work after all.
