What I Do
I spent 30 years of my life teaching and working with teachers. I am a teacher by divine design and experience. I am committed to learning all I can about "life" and finding meaningful ways to share that learning with my clients and workshop participants.
I am a coach. I am committed to helping my clients move from "here" to "there." From where they are to where they want to be. From heartbreak to happiness. From confusion to confidence. From tragedy to triumph.
I am a loss-to-life coach. I am passionate about helping people who have suffered heartbreaking losses use the lessons from those losses to build better, stronger, and healthier lives.
Who I Do It For
I smile and tell people my clients are "losers."
It's true. They are. My clients know what it is like to love something or someone with all their hearts...and watch it disappear. Very often...other parts of their lives vanish as well.
My clients are people who have suffered a loss or life-altering change. They may have chosen it or not. They may see the "sense" in it or not.
All my clients make a commitment to themselves to not become lost in their loss. They are willing to face the loss, feel the grief, and heal from the wounding. As a result, they are able to create new, brilliant futures for themselves, their families, and their communities.
Why I Do It
Why choose a coaching specialty with so much hurt and heartbreak connected to it?
For me "loss" is equal to "change with pain." The pain is caused because we are forced to let go of things and people we love. We know that is part of life. And it still hurts. We still get disoriented. We still feel angry and depressed.
Under all that grief and pain is...love. Love that can get covered up...even eaten up...by all the change and heartache we are experiencing.
I work with heartbroken people because it is too easy to close our hearts when we hurt so much. When our hearts close, the thing that gets swallowed up in our grief is the love we had for the person or thing we lost. That love is precious and essential. We need it in our families, businesses, churches, and communities.
It takes hard work to come back strong from a heartbreaking loss. If you are willing to do it, you will not be the only person who benefits. Your children, grandchildren, friends, and world are going to benefit as well.
That's why I do the work I do. It's my way of helping people keep their hearts open and their love flowing.
As a result...I believe I am changing the world...one broken heart at a time.
