My Coaching Story

Brave; Not Perfect_edited.jpg

Brave; Not Perfect

In 2017 I was struggling. I'd had a lot of loss that year by the time October arrived. I didn't know it then, but more would be coming over the next few years. For my birthday that year I got a tattoo on my left forearm that says "Brave; Not Perfect", as a way to remind myself that moving forward, as hard as it felt, was going to support me in a way that staying still wouldn't. Aside from that tattoo, I very much felt that I didn't have control over my life, and that feeling got bigger and bigger until September of 2019, when more loss and upheaval brought me to my lowest point. 


Why am I putting this out there for anyone to read, and on my website of all places?


My story didn't end. In fact, things got better. A lot better. I started learning how to be a Certified Professional Coach with iPEC in the summer of 2020. That experience and the work I have done since to really dig into my life and get curious has been a game-changer. 


So, here I am, with a mind-boggling array of lived experience, working on creating my own best life. 


My current goal in my work is to understand how we (especially people on the margins) allow perfectionism to get in our way, slow us down, stop us. I work with self-identified members of the queer community, folks who live with chronic conditions, and other people who often internalize the societal barriers we face as being our own fault, and if we just worked a little harder... 


If you recognize this line of thinking and you're tired of feeling like you would just like everything to stop so that you can breathe, let's chat. I'd love to help you find awareness of where you currently are in life, help you close gaps in your values that mean you're not living as authentically as you could. and help you find agency in your life so that you can also create your own best life.
