I'm a writer, a coach and a crazy dog person - not always in that order! I love nature, big open spaces, pizza and road trips. I'm designing the life I always wanted.

I’ve talked about resolutions before, and I’ve even talked about giving yourself permission before. Yet today I was listening to my virtual coach, Gabby Bernstein, and she talked about both of these concepts with a different twist.

She asked: What are you still giving y...

We are getting to the end of the year where hope intersects with regret. Where looking forward and making plans crosses with what didn't get done or what fell apart. 

I've learned that some things need to fall apart to make space for something new. And some things need...

At the beginning of this year I started writing “yoga" and “meditate” at the top of my planner page as a couple of my to-dos for the week. My life was, by most standards, a mess and I had run away to another state to recover. Or hide. Or both.

The meditation practi...

I was talking to a client this week about something seemingly simple like her daily schedule and I made a suggestion to tweak it a bit. In my view, the tweak was trivial, but in hers it touched the “should nerve.”

(Let’s agree to suspend the obvious truth that I am not...

I'm on a complete high as I write. Coming off of a great weekend of giving my workshop surrounded by old friends and new who came with open hearts!! And then there was the long weekend, getting to know people on a deeper level, sprinkled with travel to new places. #bli...

I sat across from my girlfriend, drinks in hand, listening to her good news. No, GREAT news! And I was - am - so incredibly over-the-moon-happy for her! And yet, I could feel myself pulling back, wanting to find a flaw. Why?

It took me only seconds to identify the feeli...

I coach people in the areas of business, sports and life, and the common thread is that all of us want more, that we have goals and desires.

Um, duh!!

But the reason I get involved is that people are overwhelmed with how to achieve those goals and they want support in fo...

I happen to be one of those people who believes everything happens for a reason. Not because I’m a fatalist or because I believe a higher power directed it so, but because without all the twists and turns in my life, I wouldn’t be where I am today. And with just a few...

January 13, 2016

It’s that time of year where we all promise to make life-altering changes, or, as some memes have captured, that time of year where we share with the world what we most hate about ourselves! Oy! Rough stuff!

I think the new year resolution stuff is great in theory - eva...
