I'll start by saying the most important and joyful role I've ever had is that of being a mom.
For the past 22 years my full time career has been in the aviation industry. I was fortunate enough to have a great job with what I considered to be the best airline in the world. Outside of work, one of my hobbies has always been reading. Although I enjoy a good fiction book, most of the time I found myself being drawn to self help and spiritual types of books.
In 2008 while reading a book from author and one of my mentors, I discovered Life Coaching. Shortly after, I signed up for training to become a certified coach. Over the years I have taken numerous trainings in different areas: weight loss, relationship, money, yoga and working with horses. I have always had a passion for trying to help people that have struggled in the same areas I have.
In 2017 I experienced the tragic and unexpected loss of my son, I immediately found a great therapist that helped me through my initial grief and trauma, I believe that was a very important part of helping me process what had happened. In the beginning I was just going through the motions. Even though it may not have appeared that way on the outside, I was basically getting through the day feeling numb inside and in a sea of fog.
Slowly the fog subsided into mist and I began to ask myself what was next. I was faced with the realization of how fast our lives can change. It gave me a sense of determination to focus on what I valued and I turned back to what I knew would help me; the knowledge and tools I had learned over the years. I began allowing myself to be engaged once again in what was important to me as well as discovering new things of importance along the way.
Over time I have been able to see a different perspective and I look at my life and future with hope. There are some things in our lives that are beyond our control. However, there are some aspects in our lives where we do have the ability to make a difference. We can choose to create a life of meaning and purpose and not allow the past to determine our future.
My desire is to help you do that in your life. Together we can discover the underlying things that may be holding you back. Whether it be your body image, a change in life and relationships or looking ahead to what can be possible for you beyond grief. I can teach you simple tools and concepts that you can use to help you move toward the life you envision for your future.
I hope you’ll join me.
