What I care about as an Organizer and Spatial Intuitive
LEARN TO TRUST YOUR CHOICES. In what ways do your doubt yourself and then that doubt is what you focus on? Instead we will create awareness of our thoughts and what we focus our precious energy into. Instead of pushing ourselves around with negative self talk and seeing life as threatening and choices as overwhelming we will practice trusting in life. I will be reminding you that you can come from either a faithful place or you can come from a fearful place. Your freedom is in this simple choice.
PROCESS VS PRODUCT. Do you find yourself rushing through your life because you want to cross off all of your “to dos”? Of course I keep your agenda at the forefront of our work together and we will work to set that in motion. However my underlying belief is that the process is equally as important as the end result. These are the only days of our lives and each action in each day can be infused with love and care rather than rush and fuss. We will pause and notice the magic even in the mundane.
NO SUCH THING AS PERFECT. How often does the thought of having to get something just right or perfect ironically stop you from doing anything at all? I see myself as a compassionate realist, working from the model of 'good-enough' and 'let's get it done'! This approach frees us up to live our lives out loud, with creativity and authenticity. We will focus more on accepting imperfections and striving for the best expression of ourselves.
SELF ACCEPTANCE FIRST, self improvement second. I challenge you to even look at why you are reaching out… Is it because you feel you need to fix yourself/ your life/ your space? I call BS on that. You are not broken. You are whole and you are also becoming whole. True change comes from accepting yourself as is which is counter intuitive, I get that. We think we are motivating ourselves by seeing all the flaws but there are purer ways towards change. So we will look at the ways we are blocking acceptance of ourselves and our lives and therefore also blocking true transformation from occurring.
ORGANIZING = SELF CARE. What if you saw organizing as something you get to do rather than have to do? Oddly, I have never been fond of the word "organizing" due to it's clinical sound. I see organizing as a way to care for yourself through your space. Not as a chore but rather a choice.
CHOOSE FROM YOUR AUTHENTIC SELF, versus your social self. Do you make choices you think others will be approving of rather than what your heart truly desires? Discover how you want to live by uncovering what is important to you, regardless of what others believe. Only from that place can we create freedom and peace.
YOUR SPACE IS SACRED. How much of yourself do you give away? Your space is a reflection of how you feel about yourself. Let this be the beginning of a new vision for your life. Sometimes boundaries need to be birthed or old stories about who you are need to be rewritten. It is time to love the space you are in!
My Pathway from There to Here:
I graduated from Naropa University in 2001 with a B.A. in Contemplative Psychology. Naropa is a special school and it was there I started my practice of meditating, which serves me to this day. All throughout Naropa and before I worked with seniors with dementia and Alzheimers disease and young adults with developmental disabilities.
After Naropa I traveled Europe for my own personal vision quest with only a backpack and an idea I would become comfortable in my own skin before returning home. I decided to move to San Francisco when I was in Paris. In San Francisco I first landed work as a freelance stylist for photo shoots. Finding that work creative but lacking in heart I knew I had to make a change. In 2004 I mentored under a master organizer in the bay area who happens to be my fairy god mother of choice. I was finally working on a holistic level one on one with clients. My life purpose was becoming revealed as I noticed when I let my own light shine I gave permission for others to access their own.
In 2007 I moved to Portland,Oregon to set out to create another thriving practice in this new city as well as restore old beautiful homes and open and later sell a sweet vintage store. Portland has not disappointed! In this Portland chapter of my life I have become a mother to a strong daughter and created a beautiful community. I strive to live each day I am gifted with powerful intention and an open heart!
I started my work in 2013 to become an accredited Co-Active Coach, CPCC. Not many people understand that term so I have coined it Transformative Coaching since that is the essence of the work. I am a founding member of the Portland Coaching Collective. In 2014 I went through a year long mentorship through Resolutions Northwest to become a mediator. I am an avid learner as I always feel a humble appreciation for growth and stretching. I find depth and ground in my own 18 year long meditation practice for which I foster with retreats yearly.
