Helping people in moments of tough decisions, stuck patterns, and self-doubt find creative ways forward.
I believe that we get stuck because we have multiple values within us that are sometimes competing. Part of me thinks I'm superwoman, while part of me fears I'm a fraud. Part of me thinks I can do it all, while part of me is tired and needs a rest. By beginning to tease out those parts of us and listen to them independently, we can begin to appreciate what each of them is trying to tell us. We can become compassionate towards ourselves, rather than frustrated, and creative, rather than stuck. This is based in Internal Family Systems, a field of psychology, and the work of Ronald Heifetz in Adaptive Leadership.
I also believe that by articulating the moments in our lives that taught us the values that we hold, we can begin to connect in deeper ways with others, find our own agency, and clarify our purpose. Through parts work, narrative, and developmental theory, I support and challenge my coachees to grow more into themselves. Through seeing more of the dynamics at play, connecting to their inner creativity, and engaging in the supportive-yet-challenging coach-coachee relationship, we expand the realm of what is possible in life. Through inner work and connection with others, we can take the important actions needed in the world.
