My self-summary
As I find the best words to describe myself, I know you will discover who I am if we should meet or have a conversation. I like to believe I have a presence you will notice that supports and welcomes you, is inviting and wants to engage in a very personal way….I love hearing people’s life stories, sharing my own and finding similarities and differences from our unique experiences. I enjoy what is spoken and the quieter communication that goes unsaid. I enjoy meeting new people and discovering more about myself in the process…..
What I’m doing with my life
I see my life as a continuous waking up to be more alive in every way I can. I have always worked with people, supporting them in knowing who they are and what kind of life they would like to create, breaking bad habits and challenging limiting beliefs .....Through a counseling and coaching format, I have the joy and pleasure of being the witness to other's transformations.....it has been and continues to be a wonderful gift to have this kind of work in my life.....it helps me stay on my edge of change as well.
I’m really good at
Being playful, finding humor, enjoying laughter whenever possible. I recognize other’s strengths and talents and enjoy supporting people I care about. I love creating beauty with flowers, either growing them or arranging them….pruning my Japanese Maples and going to the Japanese Gardens here in town. I am a bit rusty, but always enjoy a game of ping pong…..
The first things people usually notice about me
People feel safe, supported, listened to and cared for when they meet me......because I have been a life coach for several years, creating a non-judgemental presence is essential...I can also enjoy a good debate with those willing to engage in controversial topics…. I am very flexible with communication styles and thoroughly enjoy the art of discovery when meeting new people.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I enjoy a wide range of books, movies and shows....A couple books I enjoyed were Cutting for Stone and The Immortel life of Henrietta Lacks and several books by Pema Chodron. I prefer deeper character development in movies. Enjoyed American Hustle, The Butler, The Kings Speech, The Help. I will watch anything with Meryl Streep in it. Music is just as varied.....On Pandora, I have the following stations: Ottmar Liebert, Joshua Bell, Karunesh, Adele, Paul Cardall, Bob Marley, Classical music in general, Deva Premal, Michael Franti, I enjoy a wide range of music…....I have musician friends and enjoy going out to hear live music.....

Food is food, I enjoy a comfortable atmosphere to share a meal with someone from time to time.....can appreciate simple and tasty food.
Six things I could never do without
Fresh air, my friend’s dogs, learning to live without a dog for a while now, the caring and love from family and friends, flowers, going to the beach, internal silence, music and dance.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Wanting to be more trusting, fearless and more alive everyday....imagining all the ways I can make that happen in my life……
On a typical Friday night I am
After a week of work.....some form of relaxing....sometimes alone and sometimes with friends, difficult to pinpoint "typical" for me.....life is changing all the time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I wish I was more confident to sing.......I enjoy it but only feel comfortable singing with a few people who know me very well.
You should message me if
I would very much like to hear from you.... if anything I have said in this profile attracts your interest and compels you to want to have an engaging conversation....that seems to be a perfect starting point to begin something new.......so take a chance with me and let's see what happens!!! Looking forward to meeting you!
