Choice is the greatest power you have in this lifetime. Even when you feel you don't have power, you always have choice. Therefore, you always have power. However, unresolved grief and feeling like the outsider can burden us into feeling like we have no choice.

Energy is the capacity for action. Power is focused energy. Unresolved grief can rob us of our focus, therefore of our precious life energy.

Grief is the normal and natural reaction to loss. Any loss. It encompasses all of the conflicting feelings caused by the end of or change in a familiar pattern of behavior. Have you lost someone? Something? Your vision? Your dream? Your passion? How many of these losses have you experienced — even long ago — but the grief remains?

Many of us were taught it's not OK to show our feelings, so we bury them and hope they go away. However, they often come out in other ways, disguised as burn-out, fatigue, pressure, apprehension, stress, anxiety, addiction, or isolation.

Most feel grief is a cross to bear, but it can also be a bridge to cross to a new life. Coaching provides the time and space to look at your old beliefs about dealing with loss, which losses have affected your life, and take actions that will lead you to complete unresolved emotions that may still be causing you pain. Together we help you release your grief, make empowering choices in the moment, and step into your power to live consciously with gratitude, joy, and passion.

I invite clients to gain deeper understanding of the situations they find themselves in. My goal is to inspire, educate, and support people in taking action. Unresolved grief — in whatever form it takes — isn’t something to get over, but something to move through, and come out the other side. I meet people where they are in any given moment, without a burdening expectation that they be different.
