Over the years you’ve accumulated a family, a mortgage, employees … ya know, responsibilities and obligations.
It happened slowly over time, but lately you can see that you aren’t really that happy, you’re a little overwhelmed, and feeling a lot of pressure.
You love your kids, but it’s harder than you ever imagined. You need your job, but lately it feels grueling and stressful. Your marriage…well, let’s just say you’re passing ships these days.
Most of us stay stuck there – waiting it out, hoping things will get better.
What if you could feel more free and fulfilled without having to change your circumstances? What if you could thrive instead of just survive in your life?
What if you could find the courage to ask for what you want…making small changes that lead to big improvements?
Think of one problem that you’re facing right now … a difficult child, fighting too much with your partner, a co-worker that drives you crazy, unhealthy stress levels, a recent promotion that has left you feeling you are in over your head, a conversation you need to have but you keep putting off?
Let’s reframe that problem as an opportunity to get more of what you want.
Wouldn’t that be great?
Let’s do it. Together we can make your life better….one problem at a time, one choice at a time, and one step at a time.
And one day, you’ll wake up and realize that life’s pretty great again.
I’m a leadership, parent & life coach and consultant, but really I help people solve their problems, do courageous things, find joy in the midst of their obligations, and lead with confidence and authenticity.
Whether you’re leading a family, a business, a team, a classroom, or a project – get ready to develop the practical skills and emotional mastery that you need to be an effective and empowered leader; and to reframe problems into opportunities to get more of what you want within the life you have.
I’m a passionate community builder, a proud mom of two teen boys, and a technology lover. I feel most alive when I’m riding roller coasters in the front row, public speaking and teaching, and solving difficult problems.
Where others see limitations, I see shades of gray and endless possibilities. Where others see problems, I see opportunities to choose more freedom and fulfillment.
I’m an insatiable learner and a deep listener. I ask the questions that others are thinking but are afraid to ask. I say the things that others won’t say. I’ll be your fierce supporter, cheerleader and edge pusher.
Together we put you at the center of everything in your life.
That might feel foreign, but being the leader of yourself is the beginning of getting back on track.
I especially love to work with ordinary people who have mounting responsibilities, obligations, and beliefs that keep them feeling like they aren’t free to be themselves and do what they want how they want to do it.
People who feel that they no choice but to sacrifice themselves in order to keep their lives together.
I do what I do because I want you to have the life you deserve – the one where no part of you is left behind – where you are free to be the REAL you and live life the way YOU want. Yes, especially as a parent, in your marriage, in your job, and/or as you run your business.
I want you to have satisfying relationships, do projects and work you love, feel great about yourself and your life, and feel proud of what you’re doing and who you are!
I think we we all spend too much time and energy trying to be someone for someone else. We feel the pressure of society’s rules, childhood and media conditioning, and “shoulds”. Without even noticing, we become someone that we don’t even want to be. We don’t pursue projects we want to pursue because we’re afraid of judgment or failure. We play it safe, stay small and follow the rules. Then we wonder why we’re bored, uninspired, restless, and unfulfilled! So my passion is to work with moms and leaders who want to throw away the rule book and start playing bigger, bringing more of themselves to everything they do, and making their own way in (and mark on) the world. I work with wayfinders who don’t need a map because they’ve decided to chart their own course!
All of the “Shoulds” are Killing Us
I can help you cut through who you think you should be so you can find your way back to who you really are. As you learn who you really are, show up more authentically and live a life more true to yourself, you feel more comfortable allowing your kids and everyone else around you to be authentically who they are…to show up as their true selves…to live their own lives without the pressure to “be someone.”
“Sometimes when we play a role, we look outside of ourselves for the job description and we stop being ourselves. It’s like we’re missing from our lives. When we find our way back to our true selves, we feel better again.” ~ Deb Blum
As a result, your relationships will deepen and be more enriching and fulfilling.

What’s the cost of not being the authentic leader of your life? None of us want to look back at our lives with regret.
