5 Self-Care Practices for Uncertain Times

Lately I’m observing how many friends and clients are struggling. Whether it’s swimming through collective stress brought on by the current political climate, navigating a career transition, health crisis or relationship/parenting difficulty, or recovering from a financial blow–many are living hour to hour and having a hard time seeing the light at the end of […]

Learning to Go with the Flow

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them – that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” – Lao Tzu In 2016 I created an initiative to support families that I’m fairly passionate about and I’ve been returning to it off […]

What is your life trying to tell you?

At my last UNLEASHED ATX  workshop in Austin, I was visiting with two long-time entrepreneurs who both shared they were getting signs it was time to let their business go so they could harness and redirect their energy towards “what’s next.” But, easier said than done. Both have spent years and a good chunk of […]

Why we need each other

“No matter how much we meditate or pray, we still need others to help us dismantle the walls of our isolation and remind us of our belonging.” – Tara Brach A couple of years ago I was leading a work-life balance retreat for a group of twenty very successful female executives from around the US. As I […]

Is your pace sustainable?

We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. The old skin has to be shed before the new one can come. Joseph Campbell I’m doing a lot of shedding right now. Letting things wither on the vine. Die. Crumble. And fall […]

8 ways to access your feminine energy

As a life balance coach/author, I speak, teach, write and facilitate experiences to support people in coming into greater balance on all levels, including: being and doing, thinking and feeling, giving and receiving, working and playing and more. For some of us, finding balance in our relationships–both with ourselves and our loved ones–can be our greatest challenge.  Interestingly a […]

What we miss by “holding it together”

I’m the oldest of seven, the product of overachievers, a hyper-competent “woman who always has the answers and knows where she’s going.”  My friends and family see me as the go-to girl who always seems to have it together. But over the past few years, I’ve been questioning how this affects me. What is the […]

Finding peace through being with what is

As I along with so many others have attempted to digest all of the crises and atrocities we’ve been observing around the world, I have found myself vacillating between wanting to run out and take action and withdrawing from overwhelm to return to the  safety of my home.  Throughout this emotional roller coast I’ve continued […]

The power of pausing

This month I have been managing so many moving pieces — training new team members, scheduling women’s retreats and workshops, setting up new office systems and vetting new partnerships–that I have found it almost impossible to hear myself think. So on Friday, instead of continuing to plow through all the pressing to-do’s in my inbox, […]
