Why Work With Me?
Back in 2004, I was the Senior Vice President of Human Resources & Administration for the Hawaii operations of the largest international insurance company in the world. The pay and benefits were excellent and I had a great working relationship with my boss and the senior management team. But, although my life looked like a success, I was quite unhappy. I was reading many self-help books because I felt something important was missing in my life, but I didn’t know what and I couldn’t figure out how to change it.
Fast forward to the present… I am now an International Life Coach. I achieved my life long dream of living abroad in a place with 4 seasons, having lived in Osaka, Japan for 3 years. I have a job I love that allows me the flexibility and freedom to travel, set my own hours and create a gracious life that most people only dream of. My relationship with my husband is stronger than ever. I am happily living by my values and believe I am making a difference through my work.
How did I get from feeling empty inside and not knowing what I needed to be happy to finding the courage to create a passion filled life and and live my dreams?
Well, in all honesty, it wasn’t easy. It was a challenging, spiritual journey that required a paradigm shift in my thinking and an opening of my heart. My journey from an outwardly successful, but empty, colorless life to the rich, purpose-filled life I live today started when I returned to school and earned my Masters in Transpersonal Psychology from the Sofia University in California. My time at Sofia was transformative as I learned to tap into my inner wisdom, face my fears and discover my true priorities. At Sofia I majored in Creative Expression and Transformational Coaching and learned activities and exercises that helped me tap into my intuition. As I rediscovered myself, my self -confidence grew and I was able to take risks and explore my yearnings.
If you are currently living an outwardly successful, but blah, ho-hum life and are not sure what’s missing or you are not sure how to make a change, I can help through my coaching sessions and workshops. I know all about that empty feeling that nothing seems to fill. Through my work at Sofia, I know the type and kind of work you’ll need to do to create the life you want.
As we work together you will feel more excited about your life. You will feel more connected to your true self and more confident about the decisions you are making. And, as you begin to implement your inner guided actions, you will be filled with joy and serenity as you take the steps to create the life you were meant to have.
