Let's be real. Changes can be tough, especially when you go through them alone.
You are remarkably brave and resilient. You are successful. You lead others competently. And so you ask yourself, "Why should I get support, now? After all, this life change is just another stage on the journey, right?"

Yet, deep down inside, you know that this time it is different. This is why I offer you my signature coaching program, "Pathway to Clarity."

Pathway to Clarity

Your Guide to Navigating Your Life Transitions with Confidence, Hope, and Love

Why This Program?

If you are an adult, then you have likely experienced at least one major life change. But what happens as you move from that change into a time of transition between what was and the unknown of what will be?  

Without the right support, you can become overwhelmed during this transition. The feeling of being overwhelmed sneaks up on you. Suddenly, you find yourself emotionally, mentally, and spiritually drained. Simple tasks and decisions become challenging. You start to doubt your identity and capabilities. You pause, unsure of the best path forward and where it will take you.

In this program, “Pathway to Clarity,” I provide you with the insight, tools, and strategies for navigating your life transitions with competent professional support and guidance.

You talk to people all day long and you think, talking to a coach isn’t really going to help. But coaching isn’t just talking. Coaching involves identifying, processing, and thinking through your life’s desires and them coming up with actionable strategies to assist you in moving forward.

What Are Your Steps Along This Pathway to Clarity?

Name that Change - Demystify

A major life change can feel intimidating, throwing you off balance. By naming the nature of the change, you demystify it and remove its intimidating aspect. In this step, we also examine what is happening, why it is happening, how it came about, and its impact on you and those around you. Then, we affirm who you are at the core of your being and your unchanging value as created by God.

Number two-39115_1280

Embrace the Change - Transition

Having demystified the change, it is time to navigate the transition it has brought. We will examine what you need to leave behind to avoid being limited by holding on to what no longer serves you, hindering your present and future. We will also empower you to identify and acknowledge the emotions associated with the transition as you work towards accepting what is happening.

Number three-39116_1280

Live Beyond the Change - Emerge

There is life beyond the initial life-changing event. In step three, you emerge past the life event as you identify the opportunities unfolding before you. You also embrace the new you that has been honed by what has happened and is happening. You develop your mRET plan to manage your relationships, expectations, time in the light of your new reality.
