Who am I? I am a transplanted Parisian who is still working on her French; an ex-pat who wrote her way into the life of her dreams.
But that wasn’t always the case.
I spent 17 years creating a life that looked beautiful from the outside. And, it was a beautiful life, for someone else, just not me My favorite question had become, “What’s wrong with me?”
See, I know that phantom darkness that whispers in your ear that you SHOULD be satisfied.
To that end:
I tried exercise (taught yoga for 9 years) and . read self-help books by case loads.
I prayed. It went something along the lines of, “Lord, please change me. Please help me to want less, and just be grateful.”
I went to counselors until, counselor #8 told me to stop reading self-help books!
My wake up call? Showing up at my doctor’s office barefoot (no, I am not kidding.)
Finally, one day, I returned to the beginning. I picked up my pen and started to write, again. As the words flowed, I saw more, understood more, prayed more, accepted more, embraced more, decided more, laughed more, and most importantly,
I feared less, dreaded less, cried less.
Writing became the tool to clarify my thoughts, goals and purpose.
That is when I became a Life/Creativity/Writing Coach, followed my heart to Paris and published two books.
And that is when I dove head first into helping women like you and me. Women who want to truly live, not just make a living.
If you are interested, I have two Life Coach certifications (to go with a design degree, a largely completed Fine Arts degree, Yoga instructor certification and two certifications for massage).
But, none of that matters nearly as much as my ability to get you from where you are to where you want to be. If you are ready for trans-formative work, really ready to write your story and begin writing the next chapter of life with passion and purpose, I can help you do that.
Et moi, maintenant:
I get hopelessly lost on the streets of Paris (the good kind of lost, not the bad kind, like trying to figure out Twitter accounts.)
If I had more than this one life, I would play sax for Bruce Springsteen, be a principle dancer in the New York Ballet, speak 12 languages, and start a non-profit that ended all the heinous crimes against women worldwide.
As it happens, however, I have this wonderful life where I write, live in the city of lights and have the joy of working with delightful creatives like you.
When not doing that, I am dancing around the kitchen with a glass of wine while my beloved prepares gourmet French meals.
I may not ever have a movie made starring Julia Roberts as me, but, it is an awesome life.
