The In Between

Our culture values clarity, knowing, certainty, and goals. But so much of life is a process of transition, change, not knowing, and feeling lost. Years ago, a mentor did a simple exercise with me. We were sitting in her living room and she asked me to find all the blue in the room. I tracked the room and took a mental note of what was blue. Then... [Read More]

Allow Receptivity

Receptivity is allowing yourself to receive, and in the receiving you will increase your intuition and energy. When we are in career-life transition, our first instinct is to explore externally--to look outside of ourselves for answers. We take action and go, go, go. But what if you did the opposite and allowed yours... [Read More]

Resistance as an Opening

Be Yourself No Matter What

My clients often express that they desire more authenticity in their life and in their work. They are looking for permission to be who they really are. They deeply desire to let their masks down and bring all of who they are to their work and life. I say yes, be you. There is no one on this planet like you. You are who you are and that is pure g...

The Power of Appreciation

Imagine a world where people pause and told you that your smile, hug or kind words made their day. Or how simply your loving presence opened their heart. We do not hear or give enough appreciation in our society. Living on the go distracts us from purposefully pausing, reflecting and acknowledging with ourselves and ... [Read More]

Challenge Your Unconscious Beliefs

The work I do with clients is not about helping them find the next job, but ultimately uncovering and discovering who they are and choosing work based on that. There are so many cultural norms that we live with. The term 'culture' re... [Read More]
