Some cannot pinpoint the exact thing that's causing the struggle or, if they can, they have many stories about why doing something differently isn't possible. Some have a clear idea of who they want to be, where they want to be, or how they want to be feeling but just don’t know how to get themselves there.
So, we jump in together. We explore what you're telling yourself about your circumstances or the people in your life, we create a mental environment in which you can newly envision how you want to be feeling in your life and, from there, develop actual, tangible steps to help get you there. This is a process of using specific coaching tools to help you shift your perspective, open up to new possibilities, and make desired changes in your life. It requires intentionality and commitment to yourself.
With a background steeped in inner work through yoga, meditation, and continued direct work with my own teacher, my coaching always combines what I refer to as “outer work” - taking tangible action in the external world - as well as the “inner work” - learning about and undoing our habituated and conditioned ways of operating in the world. Without the inner work, the outer work can be fleeting and temporary.
Coaching is done in-person (for those local to Richmond, VA) or via phone/video call.
