In truth I feel conflicted, because it seems than anyone can call themselves a coach these days…. And while I honor every person’s journey, I worry about the dilution and impact…

On the work I hold so dear.

What I know to be true, is that my work is my calling. I’m here to see the unseen, hear the unsaid, and examine the hidden truths and bring them into the light.

Coaching vs. Consulting: what you need to know

Let’s talk about the difference between coaching & consulting, and how this distinction radically affects your client results and your business.

I’ve seen a trend happening over the last 6 or so years: coaches, teachers and healers are doing less & less coaching, teaching and healing…and more and more consulting.

Quickie Coaching Tip for Helping Clients with Self-Sabotage

Here is a Universal Truth that is important to know:

When you (or your clients) start stepping into a new goal, a new vision, a new belief or a new way of being, your ego will always, in one way or another, pretty immediately ask – “But HOW? HOW will I reach that goal? HOW will I let go of that pattern? HOW will I make it all happen?”

This is just your ego’s way of distracting you (read: sabotaging you), by demanding that you know HOW. READ MORE

the thing that changed everything in my business

In 2011, my business was doing OK. My private client roster was pretty full and I had been successfully leading an online program that was pretty popular.
