“I like to imagine that the world is one big machine. You know, machines never have any extra parts. They have the exact number and type of parts they need. So I figure if the entire world is a big machine, I have to be here for some reason. And that means you have to be here for some reason, too.”
― Brian Selznick, The Invention of Hugo Cabret
My best friend Lucca once told me that I am absolutely determined to see the best in everyone. The first time she said this to me, a lightbulb went on: I’ve got a knack for seeing people in their potential – RIGHT NOW. Perhaps it is my special superpower. At any rate, I put it to good use in my work as a coach.
There is one specific skill that has shown up to facilitate all of my work, projects, and roles: coaching. I’m sure you have heard the term “life-coach” umpteenhundred times by now – that is not what I am. I am not a realtor-style personality interested in influencing via my incredible wisdom or terrific life choices. I’m an introvert that has followed an unconventional path (one your parents would likely advise against – mine still do), and along the way I found people approached me as a safe place for them to unburden. When I was young, this was overwhelming; I decided early on that if I was to be the recipient of their trust, I had damn well equip myself to be able to respond with care, love, and process that will be of practical use and comfort.
I hold your feet while you do your sit-ups of the soul. I am here to ensure you stand as tall as you are meant to be, and reach as far as you can possibly reach. What idea do you have that won’t leave you alone? What dream is ripe and bursting to become true? How uncomfortable and frustrating is your current situation – crying out for the change you want so badly to become real?
This is my area of specialty. Let’s do it. Let’s make it real.
I see you. Not just as you are right now, but as the biggest you you have the potential within you to be. And the fun part is – I see you standing in all that potential right where you are at this moment. It’s all there, it’s already being tapped into – my job is help you to see how it is already happening, and facilitate your empowerment and supports while you experiment with the wings you didn’t know you had.
Like the quote above says, I help people figure their part out.
I also help groups figure out who does what, why, how, and where.
Coaching is one of the most delicious things that I do. I’ve been doing it since my early 20s and will do it until I’m 103. (Hold me to that). Nothing feels as good as facilitating a Eureka!, a release of something eons old, or hitting the vein of inspiration.
Most of my clients come to me by referral or because they met me and their gut tells them they are safe to explore with me. Feeling some magnetism with me? Drop me a line. We’ll talk about my rates, what is possible for you, what coaching involves, and I’ll schedule you in for a taster session.
