Heart-Centered

In these times... 

We are all aware of how different this time feels. And it is requiring a lot of care, both of self and others.

 

I am finding sheltering in place is bringing on all sorts of emotions, and usually a few at once, which is making this time feel like no other. For some, there is relief as they tend to be more introverted and they feel built for this time. For some with the ability to work at home are finding it to be alright, although difficult. For others, the lack of real life connection is a huge hole. For all, we wonder how to be with the uncertainty, the chaos, the grief, the loneliness, and the challenges of this time.

 

I am finding this to be such a ripe time for Heart-Centered Coaching and Counseling. My clients are grateful to be listened to deeply. Often, I am finding, the act of expressing what one is feeling brings some relief in the uncertainty. It is a time when it can be so helpful to just be heard, to be able to dive into all of the feelings and say them out loud, to have a time to breathe into just what you are feeling now. 

If you think you might benefit from some regular one-to-one sessions via Zoom, please don't hesitate to reach out. I also am starting some groups - click the "find out about groups" button below. ! am reducing my sliding scale fees during this time to make this service available to more people.

 

I look forward to hearing from you.

Everyone deserves to have someone listen to them

deeply and to be wholly
supported as they navigate life.

This is not a luxury; this is, in fact,

how we  step into the life we are intended to live.

Let's face it - life can feel daunting sometimes. Whether you're wanting to make change in your life, in the midst of transition, feeling tired of the ways things are going, or just want to be more reflective of your day-to-day and can't seem to figure out how - we all can feel overwhelmed and weary. 

For over 20 years, I have been supporting people as they move through transitions and changes to live the life that they want. Often, as much as we love and adore our friends and family, it is can be difficult to turn to them at times when we need courage, unwavering support, and focus. I offer deep listening and coaching as you wrestle with whatever hurdle you might face. 

What kind of people do I work with? 

  • Teens wrestling with questions of self-esteem and self-worth

  • 20 somethings setting up their life 

  • 30 somethings struggling with issues of parenthood (including should I or shouldn't I) and career changes

  • 40 somethings balancing parenthood and career as well as coaching around parenting issues

  • 50 somethings discovery what their next best thing might be and issues of aging parents

  • 60 somethings settling into a new rhythm, wrestling with life issues

I work one-on-one with people who feel muddled about life and yearn for clarity. I support women, men, adults and teens as they navigate their own spirited life. Through deep listening,  compassionate curiosity, and a healthy dose of levity and humor, I help clients to feel grounded in their own explorations and decisions.

Our sessions have the feel of therapy for people who need support in their lives and the sessions tend to be oriented towards reflective noticing, next steps, and goals based in their own deepest life values. Through clarifying conversations, our work together leads to great personal growth and well-being. 

I bring many modalities together and offer support in these two ways:

  • Support for meeting a specific goal while encouraging a balance of well being for body, mind and spirit. Working with people in transition as well as those launching their next best thing.​

  • Support for navigating transitions as well as life's biggest questions and quandaries.

I look forward to meeting you!
