What is Coaching?
Coaching is a fairly new, VERY exciting way to help you get more of what you want out of life.
Unlike therapy, coaching is less about how you got here and more about where you are going.
It's transformational. And fast.
Do you have a goal you'd like to reach? A hurdle you'd like to jump over? Or are you looking for more fulfillment in areas of your life?
This is where coaching comes in.
There's a little story I heard that describes coaching in an interesting way, it goes like this:
Say you would like to learn how to ride a bike. You go to a therapist, a consultant and a coach for help.
The therapist has you approach the bike, asks you how you're feeling, then asks what kind of previous experiences you've had with bikes and how you felt then.
The consultant gets on the bike and rides it around for a while. Then they write a manual on how to ride the bike and hands it to you.
The coach says, "ok, you get on the bike and I'll stay beside as you learn to ride"
As your coach, I believe you already have the answers inside you. You are more powerful that you think! Let's see what's in there. It's going to be amazing! I can't wait to see where you'll go!

Here's my personal story about coaching:
As a person who has always battled depression, I work on my happiness every day. I’ve been working on it for years.
My jewelry journey has been about finding my happy. When I first started creating my art, it confused me.
How were my pieces so delicate and pretty? Why did everyone call them “happy”?
I felt dark. Moody. Heavy. Ugly. Exploring this art form started my journey inwards to find the happy flower inside and free her.
She’s here. Free as she can be today. And every day I get to free her a little more. This is my life’s work. It will never stop. But man, it’s worth it.
I began working with my own life coach 2+ years ago. In that time, my life has completely transformed. This work has gotten me to where I am today.
So now, I'm embarking on a new journey. My mission is to spread joy. And I want to share the tools, knowledge, and empathy I've gained through my experiences, with you.
In the crazy up-heavle that was 2020, I made a big shift. In search of my bigger purpose, I closed my retail business of 5 years and enrolled in the Professional coaching program at CTI Institute. This intense and rigorous training brought me closer to myself and my true calling: to help people find real and fulfilling happiness.
I earned my certificate of completion and have been regularly coaching clients since September. It has completely blown my mind to see what my clients have accomplished during that short time. I knew coaching worked from my own experience with my own coach, but being able to have an impact in peoples' lives like this, is such a gift and is SO EXCITING!
I'm currently offering one-on-one coaching to help you find your joy, teach practices you can use to maintain it, and how to live a happier more fulfilled life.
I can't wait to share this journey with you!
