I listen, I don't just hear; I listen. Listening is a skill. I developed this skill for years before becoming a coach. You are here to be heard, to soar I am going to be the wind beneath your wings.

I have been a helper since college. I worked as a nurse for years. When I moved forward from floor nursing, I held many other positions in medicine, many of them being related to cancer treatments.
Then I was visited by breast cancer.
I did a lot of work under the pink umbrella. I did many fund-raising walks; I walked in the 3 Day walk 60+ miles; I wrote for magazines; I was on TV. Helping people it is always what I do best.
I eventually moved to my favorite city in the US, Chicago, and this time I worked in wound care. Once a nurse, always a nurse. It was there that I met and married the love of my life.
The next 20 years were perfect. I was no longer working in medicine. I had spread my wings and I became what I always wanted to be - a writer and author. I opened my marketing business, and I wrote and designed pieces for clients.
We lived in Florida; I owned a successful business coaching company; I had a weekly podcast; I won awards for my writing.
It all came tumbling down after they diagnosed my husband with heart issues and he needed bypass surgery. He passed away 2 years later in my arms.
While I was healing, I became certified as a life coach, I published a book on grief, and I wrote professionally for an online magazine and an online blogging platform.
I moved from Fl to SC to reestablish my life and career in writing and coaching. I am where I was meant to be living with an amazing dog, writing professionally and helping people, always helping people.
I am a very spiritual person, an Empath, and I am highly intuitive. I listen and I hear these are two different things. When life throws lemons at me, I don't make lemonade; I write. I am a deep believer in this: #tellyourstory. We all have stories, and when I spend time with my coach, it is because I have a story to tell about myself. I am here to listen to your story. Maybe you are not ready to write it, however just speaking about it will start you on a path out of your wilderness.
It is important that both of us feel comfortable. You are new to me; I am new to you, and trust is vital. First visits are laying out the groundwork for what you want to accomplish, your goals, your thoughts, your feelings. This is about you, not me, and as I have said above, I listen.
My grandmother told me to not have regrets as I can't go back and change anything. She started me down my path of helping others heal. Over the years, I allowed her words to hide from me until I faced deep grief over many losses in a short period of time. Then my beloved husband died in my arms, and I needed therapy to help me cope with the deep grief I was feeling. During my therapy, I realized I was returning to my love of wanting to help people. My own ability to heal inspired me.
