Beautiful Baggage Coaching
I help women who struggle with shyness and social anxiety reclaim their confidence, joy, and power.
For years, I considered my quiet nature and occasional bouts of extreme shyness as obstacles to an interesting and fulfilling life.
Over time, though, I learned to challenge that notion. To reignite my innate sense of adventure. To ignore the voices that said I was too quiet, too shy. To — in spite of my fears — seek out situations that would require me to grow, change, and rediscover long-buried talents and passions.
As a result, I spent nearly 20 years working as a broadcast news anchor and reporter – a dream that once seemed highly improbable to me, if not impossible. In my coaching practice, I help my clients work with their shyness, not against it, to summon their own sense of courage and possibility. To embrace their whole selves and nurture their quirks and eccentricities. To reignite their innate sense of wonder and adventure and use it as fuel for a rich and fulfilling life.
More about me: I own and operate Beautiful Baggage, a coaching service and podcast platform dedicated to "helping quiet people live loud lives" by cultivating an adventurous mindset. I live in San Francisco and also work in Communications for The Episcopal Church in the San Francisco Bay Area. In addition to my certification from The Life Coach School, I hold an M.S. in Journalism from Columbia University and a B.A. in History and French from Colgate University.
I know first-hand how powerful coaching can be, and I've never regretted the many times I've invested in coaching programs.. How wonderful it would have been, though, to have worked with someone who specialized in shyness and introversion! I'm excited to now be that coach for other "quiet" people.
All prospective clients are welcome to book one free 20-minute session on Zoom. This first session is designed to help you see where you might be stuck and get a feel for how coaching can help. If it's a good fit, the next step is to book a package of six or 12 sessions. Sessions are 30 minutes each and are tailored to your individual needs and goals. Please reach out if you have any questions about booking a mini-session or need additional help finding a time on my calendar.
I believe coaching is one of the best investments you can make, and the dividends are limitless. Every time I work with a coach, I experience new insights and breakthroughs. Working with coaches has helped me establish and maintain new habits and ways of being that have helped me in all aspects of life, from my career to my health to my relationships. If you're curious about how coaching works and how it might help you, I warmly invite you to contact me*. Hope to speak with you soon!
