About

As a Narrative Life Coach, I want to help clients unlock the themes and patterns of their lives, understand what can be changed, and move forward with focus and purpose by re-imagining their next chapters. I am interested in offering clients fun writing or drawing exercises if desired to support this journey. Narrative Coaching works well with anyone going through a painful loss or rejection, such as a death, break-up or divorce, as well as anyone who desires change but feels stuck or struggling. I'd like to help clients to realize their potentials by exploring possibilities, expanding their thinking and re-writing their narrative.
Seeing one's life as a thematic narrative is a powerful, life-changing experience. I know this firsthand, having written a memoir about my estranged sibling. It helped me to release my feelings and thoughts, forgive myself and others, accept what can't be changed and re-frame my current life. It made me more aware and resilient for the next challenges.
Whatever the cause of pain, paralysis or anxiety, I hope to help clients free themselves from it and find the strength to re-imagine and move towards a happier and more productive future. I want to help clients by listening carefully, being non-judgmental, honoring their feelings and goals and asking profound questions to help them move on.
