Work W/ Me


“Who in the world hires a play-based, depth-oriented mentor-creative coach?  And why?”

Both are excellent questions.  
Why do top leaders all have a mentor?  Because they want to be inspired and take action!  
They hire someone who can see what they can’t see in themselves (their Shadow), someone to bring out the best in them, and someone to help them remove any patterns or obstacles that have kept them from a life that is filled with authenticity and transformative experiences.
They hire someone to keep them accountable to themselves and their dreams.
People who hire a play-based, depth-oriented mentor understand that what they’ve been doing isn’t working.  They want help to move ahead on their life’s journey and reach out for help.

Commit to moving forward one Playful Step-at-a-Time

We all have a desire for something more and sometimes we just get stuck. We don’t have clarity on what we want and we can’t make a decision. We’re stuck thinking we’re not good enough, don’t have the time, the money to do it, or we don’t know that next steps to take.

Almost 30 years ago I was feeling unsure of myself and gave myself away. I would say often, ‘oh, whatever you want. That’s okay with me’. I was overwhelmed and exhausted working full-time as a nurse, attending a masters program in social work, and raising my son and two daughters, ages 9-13, and serving as a surrogate mother for a couple. (whew!)

With the help of my intuition, dreams, nature’s wisdom, Jungian analysts, and my Wild Spirit–I reconnected to my Playful and Creative Self and re-claimed those pieces of myself I had left in the Shadows. I dove headfirst into my playful journey and when the time was right started to share what I learned with others.
