As a coach, facilitator, teacher, and speaker, I love to help women live and lead with courage, resilience, and authenticity.
Let me help you find your path.
Are you going through a major transition or restlessness and you need a coach to help you work through it?
Is your community going through upheaval and/or hoping to grow into the next level and you need someone to facilitate meaningful conversations?
Is your business going through chaos and you’re trying to find the right path into your best work?
I can help you.
Hire me as your coach.
In my coaching work, I specialize in helping women:
- get unstuck,
- step forward with courage,
- find a path through chaos,
- develop resilience in the difficult spots
- embrace creativity,
- step into leadership, and
- learn to trust their intuitive wisdom.
A coaching session with me will be deeply personal, authentic, and sometimes emotional. I’ll listen to your stories, honour your wisdom, and help you find your path. I will be kind to you, and I will also challenge you to go deeper into your truth and creativity and further in your growth than you’ve gone before.
One of my greatest gifts is the ability to see the potential in other people and to help them see it too. During a session with me, you may be surprised to uncover a truth you didn’t know was there.
I use narrative coaching techniques to help you examine the stories you carry, re-shape the ones that are holding you back, and embrace new stories that will help you step into your truth.
I guide you in creative exploration such as intuitive mandala journaling or contemplative photography that will help you explore what wants to be born out of the chaos you’ve been experiencing. We’ll explore together what creative practice might be best for you. (No prior experience necessary. This is not art-making, it’s creative mess-making with a purpose, and I only introduce what you’re comfortable with.)
Note: I also offer special Mandala Sessions if you want to explore this unique creative practice as a way of working through a transition or exploration in your life.
I can do one-time coaching if you need to work through a specific tough spot, but to get through the really juicy truths that want to emerge, long-term coaching is most effective. One hour-long costs $100. Three sessions costs $250. Book me for six sessions (for the really big stuff, like a new or changing leadership role) and you’ll pay $475.
Important note: I have decided to incorporate elements of a gift economy into my business model, and so I’ve created something called Karma Coaching. If you are doing important work in the world and believe that you would benefit from my coaching, I don’t want to let limited financial resources get in the way. Find out how you can benefit from the gift of my coaching, or participate in the gift economy by supporting other world-changers who want coaching.
I do most of my coaching work via Skype or telephone, so we can work together no matter where you live in the world. I have a great deal of inter-cultural experience (it’s one of my greatest loves), and so (as long as you speak English) that doesn’t need to be a barrier to our working together.
You need to find the coach who’s right for you. I may or may not be that one. (If not, I may be able to help you find someone who is.) To start with, let’s have an exploratory conversation and you can decide after that. (No high-pressure sales tactics on my part.)
Contact me to arrange for our first conversation.
Hire me to teach or facilitate conversations
I love gathering people in a circle to share stories, deepen their connection with each other and themselves, and discover new ways to grow.
I would like to work with you in planning meaningful retreats for your staff, community organization, faith community, or women’s group. I can help you create a rich and beautiful space for deep conversations. I can facilitate your strategic planning and team-building. I can help you deepen your growth and expand your creativity.
I teach people to expand their creativity, embrace their leadership, and deepen their spiritual journeys.
I have led workshops and taught courses for several years and it is one of my favourite things to do. I teach regular eight week sessions in Writing for Self Discovery and Creative Discovery. I also teach a variety of leadership, community-building, and creativity workshops, as well as university-level courses in writing, public relations, and effective facilitation.
I bring innovation and creativity to my teaching. I can tailor the workshop to your organization’s needs. I incorporate a variety of elements into whatever I teach, including personal journaling, body movement, clay exploration, and art journaling.
Hire me as a leadership/communications consultant
I have worked as a professional communicator in government and non-profit for fifteen years. I have been in leadership for twelve of those years, and have studied with some of the masters of modern leadership thought. I have been awarded with the 2009 Manitoba Communicator of the Year by the Manitoba Chapter of the Canadian Public Relations Society. I have also been a runner-up in an international photo competition. I have had at least two dozen articles, poems, and personal essays published in local and national magazines and newspapers.
Let me help your organization, community, or business find a path through leadership and communication challenges.
I can help bring out the best in your organization, whether that involves developing a communications strategy or facilitating strategic planning exercises. I bring a creative approach to all of my work and I will help you identify solutions you never imagined possible.
Let’s start with a conversation to determine whether I am the right guide for you. Contact me and we’ll chat.
