Focus, Follow Through & Finish

mindset May 27, 2021

I've been specializing in working with high-achieving, highly creative women who struggle to reach their potential for the last few years. They are my people, and, the more time I spend with them, the more times I see a particular pattern of behavior. Now, it's not that this pattern never happens with people who aren't high achieving but underperforming women, but that it happens with such regularity with those who are. And, when it's happening, they don't realize it's a problem, until later,...

Immediate Gratification

mindset May 11, 2021

There's a reason why you usually go for the cookie, instead of the celery stick. It's the same reason why you will be scrolling through your Facebook or Instagram feed when you should be doing your laundry or paying your bills. It's not your lack of willpower or weak character or bad genes and it's not entirely your fault. It's your brain. Now the bad news is that this is the only brain you're ever gonna have, so you've got to work with it. The good news is that you can train your brain to be...

You Can't Hurt Anyone's Feelings But Your Own

blog mindset Dec 31, 2020

In order to have an emotionally healthy life, we need to understand where feelings come from, and it's not where most people think it is. It's such a common misunderstanding and the source of many dysfunctional relationships, broken friendships and even divorces. It's also not our fault, because we are being taught to believe that we are responsible for other people's feelings and they are responsible for ours from a very early age, at home, in school, and in our religious institutions.

Happiness is 50-50

mindset podcast Dec 08, 2020
 

When was the last time you remember being sincerely happy with what’s going on in your life? Most people have something they wanted to have or to be in their life, and also take what they do have for granted. Most of us are more focused on what we think of as unhappiness or misfortune than we are on luck and joy. 

Happiness may be vague and considered immeasurable by scientists, but what if I told you that there’s a way how you can live a peaceful and happy life...

Making a You Turn

blog mindset Oct 07, 2020

Most of us go through life with some kind of plan. OK, maybe it's not completely all figured out and there might not be a specific timeline or scheduled checkpoints along the way, but you have a direction and a pretty solid sense of where you're going. And then, seemingly all of a sudden, you find yourself questioning everything, feeling a bit lost and spinning your wheels. If you're ever been through this, you know how disorienting it is and how much confidence gets lost in the process. It's...

I Caught Myself Doing it Again

blog mindset Sep 23, 2020

I like to think of myself as open-minded. And more than that, I like to think of myself as positive, growth-oriented and someone who is committed to continuous personal evolution. I have worked with therapists off and on throughout my adult life and have been to a variety of healers of various modalities. I worked with a shamanic healer, a faith healer, a chiropractor who practiced muscle testing and energy healing. I have pulled tarot cards, angel cards, diffused essential oils, studied...

Who Do You Think You Are?

blog mindset Aug 12, 2020

Human beings love to label themselves. Woman. Married. Coach. Buddhist. Dog lover. Coffee drinker. We also love to label others. It's easier to remember people when you have a way to sort and categorize them. It's just human nature and our brains are wired to do it automatically. But, even though it's the way we operate, and there's no doubt that putting labels on people makes it easier to sort and file them than just trying to recall every single individual characteristic, there is a great...
