“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” ― Rumi

Coaching Coaching is a career which found me rather than the other way around. For years, I have attracted people who came to me for advice. Decades ago, I did not have much to share. Yet, after years of self-actualization and a lot of hard work, I have a heart for those who want to challenge their status quo and march toward their best self and their best future.
I believe we all have our answers within us. However, often, said answers are buried under years of muck. From what we have been told (and believed) about us, the masks we have been handed (or chosen), the culture in which we live, our families of origin, our experiences, there can be many layers which hide our truest essence.
I aim to support whomever chooses this challenging—but oh so rewarding—journey.
Writing Incidentally, authorship also found me by serendipity.
While always an avid bibliophile—book lover—I never aspired to write a book. A friend encouraged me to do so after reading my blog and, as they say, the rest is history.
