I’m here for you !

Intuitive Coach, Gifted Wordsmith, and Inspiring Teacher

I was born to teach and also write from the soul, diving deep into what makes the heart sing.

Memories now flash back to me as a little girl, maybe seven- or-eight years old, rushing to my bedroom after coming home from school and teaching my “make- believe students” all I learned that day (with my older brother laughing in the next room, perhaps thinking “here she goes again.”)

Little did I know I would be led many decades later, after going inward and spending much time in solitude—or what I call “space for grace” —to teach others how to:

  • claim their innate worthiness and power
  •  embrace stillness and “the unknown” as a gift and,
  • discover their authentic selves

For more than 23 years, I have coached clients through all sorts of transitions—from career and relationship changes to health challenges and reinventing themselves after a job loss, death of a loved one, becoming an empty nester, starting a new business, overcoming “imposter syndrome” through promotions, or rediscovering new parts of themselves in retirement.

My teaching has evolved significantly, based on the wisdom of age, having faced many adversities that have, like a diamond formed under pressure, polished and refined me. I now serve and inspire others more impactfully, witnessing others with a deeper sense of love, compassion, and wisdom.

I finally learned that to move from being a victim of the past to the creator of a vibrant and fulfilling life, I had to claim my worthiness and choose to live in the present.

Today, I am here to help you do the same. Teaching others to live from their greatest sense of worthiness is my legacy–the reason I believe I was given a second chance at life.

GETTING OUT OF ISOLATION

“It is an absolute human certainty that no one can know his own beauty or perceive a sense of his own worth until it has been reflected back to him in the mirror of another loving, caring human being.” ~John Joseph Powell

My core teachings guide clients into claiming NEW stories that reflect their worthiness and authenticity, from which true joy and abundance on all levels arises. We are all “BORN TO BE ALIVE,” and have a unique song to sing. I lead you through that discovery process that reignites your passion for life, no matter your age or circumstances.

Instilling a greater sense of belonging and being part of community are also integral to well-being. Hence, I offer “Sacred Circles of Trust” and other programs around “Coming Home to Your True Self” and “Embracing Wealth and Unlimited Prosperity,” some of which are by invitation only after doing 1:1 coaching with me.

Many of “the old ways” we define ourselves or success, based on early life conditioning, are being dismantled in this evolving new world. There are new ways to embrace energy to heal our bodies and our souls to connect at higher levels of consciousness to thrive—personally and professionally.

I’ve trained with the world’s best in neuroscience and “energy as medicine” to help clients raise their internal vibration to heal and attract the very best . My work is customized to each client, based on a strong intuitive sense and the gifts of words that get downloaded to me—words that often create instant shifts for clients for lasting transformation.

PAUSING TO CREATE ANEW

“The pause—sometimes initiated by a life curveball like a health challenge, financial loss, death of a loved, angst of starting a new business or career, or another one of the soul’s promptings for redirecting life —is the sacred place of becoming who we truly are.”
~ Gail Kauranen Jones

My titles and branding have focused on my being a “nationally recognized worthiness coach,” “wellness pioneer,” and “award-winning writer,” external validations that I worked hard to achieve over 40-plus professional years. I value the wisdom, skills, and insights accumulated through many life ‘lessons.”

Yet, they don’t define WHO I am. I am a seeker, who finds answers and inspiration by PAUSING, spending time meditating, connecting with other growth-minded people, journaling, or being in nature, which I call “my church.” Most of my blogs and national articles, and more than half of my books’ contents were written while walking, texting myself chapter titles, and other insights I gained in silence and through connecting to beauty and my Higher Power.

Living a healthy life —and stretching out of my comfort zone by trying new things like aerial yoga—heightens my sense of aliveness and awareness.

Moving forward also means using older, finely tuned skills in new ways. I left the corporate world as a PR executive and my being a former journalist decades ago to pursue my soul’s nudge to write from the heart, coach, and teach. Taking CEOs on press tours and branding them for success seems foreign to what I do now, although I love helping my executive and personal clients clarify “who” they are in the world, as well as in their hearts.

I still write profile features, speeches, and video scripts for some of those I coach, only from a different approach of guiding clients to speak with more transparency. Leaders today must be authentic to build trust.

My business is a boutique coaching and writing practice, with sessions highly customized, including meditating on each client before and/or after we meet.

It is my honor to support those who prioritize, and commit to, investing in themselves and their personal growth.
