Sacred Coaching: Helping you birth the next version of yourself

Something is calling for your attention. Maybe it is self-care. Maybe it is a dream. A vision. Maybe an uncomfortable feeling that it is time for a change but you're not sure what that change is.

 

Let’s honor this liminal moment as the gift it is. Let’s swim around in it.  Let’s loosen our grip enough to see what is flowing freely and nurture it with the wonder and curiosity it deserves.

 

I’m here for the journey. To help you. To take off some of the pressure and create space.

 

What are you hungry for?

 

Sometimes we just feel hungry. We don’t know why we are hungry. So we ask for help and dive in.

Next Chapter Work: Silver Linings and Golden Opportunities

You are at a huge transition point in your life. Maybe you are:

 

  • You are moving from your home of 30 years to a retirement community

  • Life is doing a 180 and you are moving across the country or internationally

  • You’re moving after a divorce or kids leave the house

  • A relative has died and you are in charge of their estate and what to keep, pass on to the next generation, or give away.

 

These are highly emotional moments. There can be a lot of grief, sadness, and uncertainty mixed with feelings of relief, excitement, and curiosity.

But where do you start?

 

Together we will discuss current feelings and intentions you have for our time together. The nectar from this conversation will steer us toward what you are wanting from this next chapter in life and how what remains is yours to name and claim in a new way.

Coaching combined with home organizing is available for folks in the Bay Area.

She has supported my husband and me in re-inventing our lives and understanding our emotions as we deal with Parkinson's.  She's guided me through re-organizing and simplifying our home. And she also helped me create a lovely PowerPoint presentation for a celebration on zoom!"

Post-Partum Doula Clients

I do not offer medical care or advice. Doulas don’t replace medical providers like doctors, midwives, and nurses. I provide support and uninterrupted attention to body, mind, and spirit in tandem with the care you receive from medical and other providers.

Rituals ‘R Us

Generations ago, life was more ritualized. Beyond our current rituals around birthdays, baby showers, weddings, and funerals, there were once many more daily, seasonal, and annual rituals that helped us humans stay connected to ourselves, each other, and the natural world.

Together we look at a specific aspect of your life your would like to ritualize. Whether that is to celebrate a small/medium/big personal win, mark a sacred life passage, or release something, we will deep dive into the aspect and craft a ritual that feels aligned and meaningful to you. We play with the emotions of fear, doubt, and excitement to come up with the ritual that will be most powerful for you and your own transformation.
