You (Secretly) know your gifts are needed
You keep receiving hints about the magic you have inside, but aren’t sure how to dig in deeper to really live your purpose and find true fulfillment.
You’ve sought out personal development coaches or business coaches- working with the “Driven and/or Ass-kicking.” While others might suggest that you have it in you to become – you just feel in your soul that you are not that. That energy does not feel in alignment at this point in your life.
You might have realized that caring too much, keeping up on the technical side, or running so fast for too long have drained the joy out of the work you’ve loved for so long.
The Journey to Here & Now
For years, I generally felt different. I wondered what was wrong with me- at the same time I craved being Seen and Known by other people! I always knew that I was sensitive, private and reserved (with a wicked sense of humor). I fell into a career where I could listen well, and help people through their darkest moments and beyond. I’m no stranger to darkness- I spent many years working with folks involved with the court systems and individuals who were institutionalized – the hardest stuff you could imagine.
In 2019, we moved across the country, and I worked in a couple of different jobs while we got stabilized- oh yeah, and then there was that Pandemic thing…where much of life felt like it was on Hold.. Change Feels like it’s been coming, and in stepping again into that energy of “making something happen”, it got a bit frantic, thinking and researching something new..
Until a Dear Friend reminded me that I did Not need more training, I just needed to do – what I do!
So I’m inviting you to my party
I’d been in private practice for a number of years before moving to Nashville. I help coming back to how temperament helped me understand other people, truly and deeply.. I became more focused and I felt empowered in ways I’d never expected! I Finally Remembered that I had spent years helping others to understand and connect more deeply with themselves.
I’ve been coaching others on more effective communications – within their teams, with other professionals, as well as with others in their families.
I’d known that clients I’ve attracted had general similarities – frequently they were emotionally and sometimes physically very sensitive.
Frequently they were also Solution- focused and practical, they often felt driven to help others and to have deeper, meaningful connections in their relationships. Frequently, they process experiences internally, thinking things through and also considering how they felt about the decision, or how others would feel (and sometimes experience analysis paralysis). These clients have often been very private – used to listening to other people more than sharing about them selves, and leaving them with a sense of longing to be seen. Many have been very smart, yet have been self medicating in some form and fashion, to manage the discomfort they didn’t quite understand.
Clients were telling me how connected they felt with what they read on my website. Client survey responses said things like, “I really felt you saw me for me” and “your help has changed the way I feel and act.”
“After working with life coaches and a career coach, I really felt like I was broken because the approaches they used did not suit me. That led me to feel like I was throwing my time and money away. But when you emphasized that I would have an experience based specifically about ME, and you would help reveal the qualities that make me ME, I was all in”
So AGAIN, when I slowed down, I remembered:
My clients have excellent results because I tailor each session to the individual through an applied use of my knowledge of inner design.
Once I had stopped comparing myself and my gifts to others, I recognized that my offerings would speak to those who have experienced similar fears, concerns, and uncertainties. This is your invitation to do the same. My superpower is seeing beyond the surface to support the Introverts who are ready (or getting ready) to be fully seen for who they are- and the Art of Gentleness. For their unique perspective, and for the Wisdom they bring to each situation.
I help the professionals who are changing directions and tapping into their intuition. Those who are beginning to identify the steps necessary to launch the next expression of themselves to bring to the world. The professionals who are bringing their work into its most genuine and expanded version through the tool/lens of inner design.
Together we will connect you more deeply with the people you are meant to be serving.
See how this works in action- call me to discuss a challenging client or circumstance. I’ll ask you a few questions and will offer you a few tips on verbiage to connect with that specific client – where they might be coming from; words you can use in speaking their language and recognizing what drives their motivations.
We will talk about your desires for your business in 2022, and how ongoing mentoring and consultation can support you, and what that might look and feel like.
And For the Mental Health/Healing and Coaching Professionals
We’ve been taught to look for diagnosis- for what’s Wrong with the person/couple/family/system, often before we can get to know their strengths. I facilitate Healing & Helping Professionals seeing their clients differently- moving beyond any diagnosis. Diagnosis may be important, and it may not be necessary to help the people in front of you. This energetic shift allows us to see what is- without judgment, without needing to solve a problem. Imagine quickly moving past the story to recognize the need behind the words, so you facilitate change driven by the clients’ unique motivations.
