HOW I WORK
My philosophy is simple. I stand for greatness in you, and I equip you with the tools to unleash it. Each person can lead a much happier life if they are willing to put in the effort to change what is not working. I know you have great potential that gets drowned out by the expectations and limitations of others and years of conditioning. I know how to support you in overcoming them and building a life that brings you peace and fulfillment.
I believe we all deserve to have relationships where we feel loved and supported, and work where our natural talents are expressed and that supports our creative expression.
I guide you through the darkness into the light until you reach your inner temple
Making lasting changes in your life is often difficult. You come across resistance and don’t have the tools to move forward in the right direction. On this page, I’ll tell you the kind of results my clients have reported and I’ll give you a sense of my guiding beliefs, approach to working with clients and what is unique about working with me.
“Your strength is how calmly, quietly and peacefully you face life.” Yogi Bajan
Seeing and recognizing the best of you: Men are often thought to be tough, so in working toward success, they can be very harsh on themselves, feel like they can’t make mistakes and become defined by what they earn. When you work with me, you will see the beauty of you. Instead of fearing your emotions, they will become your messengers. You will have a space where what you see as your weaknesses becomes the doorway to your transformation.
Where you see weakness, I see strength, where you feel anger and shame, I show up with a fierce compassion that allows you to drop the masks, understand your needs and emerge as a more confident and loving version of yourself.
Standing up for yourself: Armed with a new self-confidence, a connection to your needs and values, and tools to communicate better, you will find it much easier to make the decisions that are right for you, gain more respect than ever, have more influence on others and lead with a balance of compassion and accountability.
Finding and keeping your balance: As you understand what causes your inner turmoil, release the causes of anxiety and fear within you, you will get triggered significantly less and your recovery time will come much faster. You will know what works for you and how to get back to being at peace and most productive when your boat gets rocked. You will find peace, and reconnect with joy in your life.
“And then I learned the spiritual journey had nothing to do with being nice. It was about being real, being authentic. Having boundaries. Honoring my space first, others second. And from this space of self-care being nice just happened, it flowed not motivated by fear but by love.” Michelle Olak
Going from confusion and exhaustion to clarity and resilience: As we work together, your patterns will emerge clearly. You will recognize how you came to feel depleted and unappreciated. You will learn to appreciate your intentions while creating new empowering dynamics in your relationships. As you stand up for yourself, you will feel empowered and strong.
Loving others through loving yourself first without guilt: Guilt is often the most difficult emotion to overcome for women. When you see the impact of taking care of yourself, and how much space it creates within you to care in more productive ways for others, you will find the courage and strength to put yourself first, because then you know, it is truly for the benefit of all. This rewiring takes time and comes by taking small steps, as you feel ready. I will support you, call your power out and walk with you at your own pace.
Walking towards a renewed vision for your life with ease and joy: When you heal the past, the fog lifts and the future becomes brighter. Through our work together, it will become a lot easier for you to be assertive in your relationships, while being caring and supportive. As you heal the patterns that brought you to this place, your locked joy and creativity will naturally emerge.
A new vision for your life will become possible. For some, it is minor changes that make a huge difference; for others, the changes are more important. Whichever situation manifests as yours, you will have the tools and ability to continue the journey to your most empowered and fulfilling life.
For True Purpose ® Seekers
“You must not loose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean. If a few drops are dirty, the whole ocean is not dirty.” Mahatma Ghandi
You will know what you soul is here to achieve: No more guessing games or going down unfulfilling paths. When you know you are living your life purpose, you feel more peaceful and at ease than ever before, and you will face challenges with more resilience.
Seeing the world with new eyes: There are great challenges facing humanity at this time and you can be a bigger part of the solution. We all have optimal ways to contribute and parts of us know that. However, without a healthy spiritual perspective, it becomes easy to be riddled by fear and anxiety, or remain stagnant in what looks like acceptance. Your life doesn’t have to be that way.
Parts of you will have objections to this possibility, but through our work, you will cultivate a higher perspective and heal your deepest wounds and fears. With these two elements, your journey to living purposefully will be much easier. And you always remain in charge of your journey and at choice about how much you want to engage with your purpose. There is a right pace for each person and you set the right pace for you.
My guiding principles and beliefs:
“If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself. If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.” Lao Tzu
Honesty, courage and compassion are the way forward
We are all equal and we all have something precious to offer the world
All sustainable change starts inside of us
Our darkest moments hold the power to transform us into our best selves
We are not victims of our reality, we create it (and too often don<t know that we do)
The way forward toward the life you see is through working out what’s holding you back
We are resourceful
Our bodies and minds are resilient
Sisterhood is a sacred contract. I believe in women empowering each other, not competing with one another. Blowing someone else’s candle does not make ours shine brighter
Working with me:
Co-creating your healing space: First, we will have a free exploration session for you to share with me your goals, and your struggles. I will ask you to share with me what is most important for me to know about you for our work together and answer your questions. We will get a sense of whether or not we are a good match.
I will share with you the kind of coaching tools we can use and my approach. My strength is in honesty and authenticity. I want to work with the right clients for me, so if I feel I am not the right coach for you, I will let you know right then.
Simplicity and efficiency: If we are a good match, we then create the right package for you. We will set your goals clearly and how we’ll measure your progress along the way.
Flexibility: Some clients require more long-term support, but the overall idea is for you to get to a place where you are resilient enough to go on without support. If your specific situation requires us to have more space between sessions or more sessions at the initial stages, we will adjust to your needs.
By now, you have a better idea about what to expect by working with me. You know my approach and philosophy for working with clients. If you feel I could be the right coach for you, go the Individual Coaching page to learn about the specific programs I offer. For workshops, go to the Workshops page.
