It’s Too Late, You Snapped at Your Kid. Now What?

Expansion Power Hours

• Need a sounding board or a thought partner?
• Someone to brainstorm or ideate with?
• Have a new idea that you want to discuss and get more clarity around or a problem that you need to talk through and solve?
• Something you keep worrying about and don’t feel comfortable sharing yet with a friend?
• Are you stuck and you need someone else to breathe some life into your project and get you re-engaged with some new possibilities?
• Or even a difficult conversation you have to prepare for or a non-politically correct thought that you need someone to explore with before you speak it aloud?

Whatever’s on your mind, bring it. Together we will take a more expanded perspective of whatever you are dealing with and think it through together. My gift is to take a lot of information and make sense of it quickly – then to see things from an elevated and interconnected view and come up with never-been-considered possibilities.

When we finish the session, you’ll feel more clear, inspired, and aligned – and ready to act.

Expansion hours can be booked in longer time periods – 90 minutes…up to 3-hour sessions for larger projects and ideas – and in discounted pre-paid blocks by contacting


Parent Consultations

• Is something not working in your home? Are you worried about one of your kids?
• Or is it you that you’re worried about? Are you too reactive or perhaps too permissive and things feel out of control?
• Do you want to feel more confident and secure in your parenting?
• Are you wishing your kids would just listen and cooperate!?!
• And that you could all have more respectful and enjoyable conversations?

Together, we will look at your family dynamics and come up with a plan to get you more of what you want and less of what is driving you crazy. We look at everyone’s behaviors and get underneath that to see what’s REALLY going on. And from there, we tap into your natural parenting instincts and what feels most aligned with your true nature to get clear on what’s next. You’ll walk away with a better understanding of what’s going on, hope for what’s possible and ready to take action to get there.

Empowerment & Leadership Coaching

• Are you ready to live and lead more authentically? More in integrity with your true self?
• Do you want to show up bigger and put yourself out there more but are feeling hesitant?
• Are you wanting to do deeper work around self-acceptance, consciousness and authenticity?
• Have you done a lot of work on yourself but can’t understand why your life isn’t as you think it could be?
• Are you needing some support around relationships and communications? Wishing to be a more effective and conscious leader?

Whatever’s on your mind, bring it. Together we will take a more expanded perspective of whatever you are dealing with and think it through together. My gift is to take a lot of information and make sense of it quickly – then to see things from an elevated and interconnected view and come up with never-been-considered possibilities.

We’ll start by defining what you want and then we’ll map out a plan to get you there. My coaching is a combination of mentoring, teaching and coaching. Expect to have your edges pushed and the “real you” be beckoned. I’m a catalyst for radical acceptance and change. It’s paradoxical – we hold the being and the becoming. It’s only through radical self-acceptance that you have any chance of becoming who you wish to be. Working with me will move you towards feeling empowered in your life, having the relationships you wish for, to become a true leader of your own life and to be an effective leader in your work, your family and in the world.

Business Strategy and Success Partnership

• Are you on a similar mission to me? An Inside-Out Activist?
• Do you have a project you’d like to launch but feel stuck or not sure how to get started?
• Do you want to play bigger, show up more fully, have a greater impact but aren’t sure how?
• Have you thought having a partner would be helpful but also that you aren’t so sure you really want one?

I work with coaches, therapists, healers, leaders, CEOs in mission-driven businesses and anyone else who considers themselves to be an Inside-Out Activist to help you to play bigger and have a greater influence in the world. Think of me sort of like an agent – I connect you with the right people to get your project done, refer you potential clients, bring you onto my YouTube show, strategize and plan out your next steps and I also work by your side to get you where you want to go. I’m your success partner. Each project is bespoke so the first step is to have a quick chat.
