Recently I came across an article describing Empaths also known as, Highly Sensitive people. Having never heard of the term before I read on because the title of the article was about relationships, toxic ones to be exact. Having had more than my fair share of those I decided to keep reading and what I found opened the door to an entirely new way of thinking, and accepting for me.
Without explanation I have ALWAYS been able to read people's moods, and energy. People pleasing was not something I was aware of but certainly something that I've done since I was very young. I have been referred to as a people person, with the ability to meet someone and have them open up and tell me their deepest desires and secrets within minutes. I was of the belief that this is a good thing, and I tend to agree with that. However, when the connection that is so rapidly formed between myself and another causes me (unconsciously of course) to become someone I am not simply for the sake of...
I love learning and cannot wait to share with you!
People who know me would say I read like Google is going to crash. I do read all the time and am always taking courses to continually develop and hone my skills.
One of my favorite quotes is by Abraham Lincoln; “Give me 6 hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”
The reason I love this quote is the wisdom within.
Time spent in sharpening the axe may well be spared from swinging it.
I believe we are all creative, capable, wise and good and that our personal growth needs to be a priority if we are to become our best selves.
Working with individuals, teams and organizations to help them unleash strengths and maximize performance is what I am privileged to do. We leverage a tool called the circle of personal perspective which helps to identify levels of satisfaction in all areas of our lives.
Personally, I have always been quite happy with all areas, but one.
I am so thrilled and honored you are joining us on a journey to YOUR best life. The journey that led me here has been bumpy at times and certainly very eventful but I am now in a place where I can truly say I am happier than I have every been and I want to inspire other women to find their ultimate joy and live their lives incorporating holistic health and wellness!
Just like so many other women, I lost much of myself in the hustle and bustle of family life for many years. As women we are conditioned by society and our upbringing to prioritize our children, our spouses, our parents. Consequentially we risk losing our own identity and are often left feeling unfulfilled and lacking.
What I’ve learned in recent years (mostly the hard way) is that in order to be able to give your best to those you care about, you have to look after yourself first. I have also learned that I am enough and that my dreams and desires are not any less important than those of others. Guilt...
I've been working with women for over 10 years as both an esthetician and a coach. Spending a lot of time talking, about life. It wasn’t long before I noticed a very common theme. It really didn’t matter if I was talking to someone younger college age, or a women closer to my age (at that time I was in my 40’s), or just a bit older. Here is what I heard, repeatedly;
"I feel like something is missing.”
“There must be something more."
"I just want to be happy."
"I want to make a difference."
Same desire, different women, day after day, week after week. All. The. Time. It was heartfelt and so very common. I identified with these women, because we were all singing the same song. Everything I was hearing was exactly what I’d been yearning for myself. To be sure, the time I spent in the treatment room of the day spa, working with women is what let me to becoming a coach. But it was...
