"What am I doing on this planet? No, really! What is my purpose?"
"What's all this enlightenment talk about? Mindfulness? I don't want to quiet my mind, it's uncomfortable."
"I've reached the conclusion that people are not to be trusted. Yet I want to belong and my heart hurts when it's closed. How do you expect me to trust others?"
I work with my clients to re-story and to find the deeper understanding of how their core beliefs were innocently acquired.
I help my clients heal from their past, discover more parts of themselves to appreciate, and learn radically different ways to communicate to the people in their lives. Though most of us didn't get offered communication or relationship skills when we were younger, it's achievable today.
My approach emphasizes slowing down and listening deeply —to ourselves as well as others - and uses the principles of nonviolent communication to do so.
Unique support for ages 10 - 18
Dear precious ones of our future. You are our tomorrow. Creative, adaptive, curious, and sometimes scared you feel. Asking yourself, "How do I minimize risk and still not miss out?" And, "Where do I belong?"
Young people have a different way of looking at the world, and that way of expression can sometimes be lost on others.
There is a lot of info in your silence, in a shrug of your shoulders, in your offward glance, if only we could calmly capture it. You are worried about the world's state of affairs no doubt, and often more worried about how the adults around you ineffectively express themselves and disconnect during these crucial times. Frustrating, I know.
You'd like your questions to be met with curiosity, not answers. Understanding not judgment. Through your wildly creative personalities displayed to the world, ultimately you, just like all of us, want connection, belonging, purpose, and love.
I am available to provide a unique space for you to be all YOU, and to fully discover and express that "you" into.
I help guide and sharpen your innate wisdom into the effective communication that is needed for others to really get you.
How long is each session? 50 minutes.
How often do we meet? Most clients meet with me weekly. I strongly recommend meeting on a regular, consistent basis to give out-of-session momentum to our in-session changes. Especially in the first 3-6 months of coaching together, a lot of healing, growth, and transformation often occur that require consistent follow-up. After establishing a strong foundation, some clients will see me for "maintenance" on a less frequent basis. That said, clients are always free to come and go, and I welcome all newcomers to begin by trying a single session to see if working together feels like a good fit.
What are your fees? I request $100 per 50 minute session. In instances where the client is deeply ready and willing to invest in their growth and this fee would pose a financial hardship, I offer a sliding scale. Write to me and let's talk. I do not accept insurance.
Are there packages available? Yes, click here to learn more.
Where will we meet? At my office in Gainesville, Florida. If you’re not local, we can meet via video. Some unique circumstances make it more comfortable or safe in the client's home.
