You must take personal responsibility.
You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind,
but you can change yourself.
What made you decide to become a Life Coach?
My journey to coaching was certainly not planned. I was a Business Major in college and had a very rich and full Sales, Management and Business career. I worked for many years to the Airline and Cruise Line Industries traveling the world for work and pleasure. It was a dream come true. Experiencing many incrediable countries, cultures and people opened me up and shifted my limited perspective of the world.
After years of fabulous adventures, I decided to fulfill another life long dream - the dream of owning my own business. I purchased a retail Print Shop and also created a Invitation Studio. It was a wonderful experience of creativity, dicipline, learning and growing that I enjoyed for many years. Although my life was very full at that time, I found myself ready to embark on a new journey. It was time to step away from the reaching-to-achieve goals and begin creating heart-centered goals. I was introduced to Life Coaching and intuitively I knew this was what I was seeking and what I was meant to do. The printing/invitation business is now thriving in my husband's very capable hands and I am able to devote myself full time to my true passion of helping others navigate this incrediable journey.
Why did you create Midlife Clarity?
When I began to learn and grow on a more spiritual level, I found myself on an enlightening inner journey. I read countless books, took self-help courses, listened to many programs and used my own intuition to find the clarity and balance I was seeking. I distilled the best of the best from what I learned during this time of transformation. This is the foundation on which Midlife Clarity was built. It's the basis on which I support other women as they also journey to their true selves during midlife.
Did you have a Midlife Crisis?
I had something much more empowering - a Midlife Awakening! Life is a natural journey of learning, growing and evolving. What worked for us in our 20's or 30's most likely does not align with the women we are today. The new feelings, thoughts and desires in midlife are nature's wake-up call. It's time to wake-up and reconnect to who we are and to all that is possible in our lives.
What is your Coaching Philosophy?
I believe each of us has our own authentic answers, truths, values and strengths within. I support my clients with coaching skills and tools along with spiritual itegrity, innate wisdom and intuition. I believe the transformation process should be graceful and empowering. One of my favorite coaching descriptions is that Coach 'dances in the moment with her client'. During our coaching sessions, I may offer customized exercises and guided meditations along with powerful questions and unwavering support. I will also suggest books or other resources that may further my client's transformation process.
Are you Certified?
Yes! I received my Professional Life Coach Certification from the International Coach Academy, a wonderful school accredited by the International Coaching Federation (ICF). The ICF is the most respected global oversight body in the Coaching Industry. A Coach with an ICF accredited Certification is required to uphold their strict code of ethics and standards. At this time, the Life Coaching Industry in the United States is not regulated. However, I believe strongly in Coaches holding a certification from an ICF accrediated school.
How do you keep current on what's new?
I have life-time access to all classes offered through the International Coach Academy. I am also member of a wonderful Mastermind Group of high caliber conscious entrepreneurs and professional coaches where we share and learn from one another. As a life-long learner, I continually seek out new information and knowledge. I also have my own fabulous Life Coach to guide me as I continue to grow, learn, and evolve.
If someone would like to work with you, what should they do?
I recommend they click on the Discovery Session Tab and request a free confidential consultation. During that session, we can see if coaching is right for them and if we are a good fit. A Discovery Session is also a wonderful opportunity to experience life coaching, and more specifically, my life coaching style.
