Not only does being happy make us feel good but research now demonstrates that happiness is our most generative and productive state.
Not only is happiness a choice we can make for ourselves but there are resources and tools to empower us to learn how to be more joyful, content, optimistic, and resilient.
Contrary to popular belief, happiness is not simply the result of good genes or good luck. Research shows that a joyful and fulfilling life can be cultivated by building on the best things in life and identifying and using many of the signature strengths and traits we already possess.
Have you ever noticed how stress can make us stupid? When we are stressed we cannot remember, pay attention, learn, or make decisions clearly. Are you aware that your job, your food choices, your level of activity, your sense of well-being, your life experiences and even how you express yourself in language, all impact both your body and your mind? Did you know that stress can cause permanent brain damage AND seems increasingly likely to play a role in accelerating brain aging? By discovering what triggers our negative and often stressful emotions, we become able to better manage our reactions and choose our responses. Perhaps it is time to consider what you can do to manage your stress levels by paying attention to the three Rs - how and why you React, what enhances your ability to Respond, and specific tools to enhance your Resilience Factor.
In this program, participants are introduced to the concept of basic and "powerhouse" sources and how to tap into them. For those who wish to take the conversation to the next level, there will be workbooks available. Take the first step to becoming an energy connoisseur in order to increase your experience of well-being and to incorporate vitality and balance into the structure of each day.

This program offers timely tips and opportunities for deep reflection about how you spend your days and, by extension, your life.

This Values conversation is the starting point for a personal exploration into the "core" of one's life. Just imagine clearly understanding the unique gift that you are here to be. Imagine how that knowing would inspire the present and transform your future. Join me for a conversation and experience that will introduce you to your essential self. This methodology is designed to:

- design a strong personal foundation to support one's sense of purpose
- weave core values into all the realms of one's life
The noise of civilization can, at times, drown out the more subtle whisperings of the soul. Yet, when we stop and listen, we create the space for our authentic Self to emerge from out of the cacophony. We write, as Julio Olalla says, "to make sense beyond logic of the human experience." This is poetry. The workshop begins with a brief conversation on both the efficacy and magic of poetry. Then, using music and meditation to shift the energy, each participant is invited to write from his/her own place of inspiration.
We’ve come a long way since women first struggled for their voices to be heard, their opinions acknowledged, and their choices respected. It is no less important today than it was all those decades ago to continually evaluate what really matters to us individually and collectively and to express those values clearly and powerfully.
The poet Mary Oliver asks, “Tell me what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” Using VOICE as an acronym for 5 tools for living in harmony with our highest truths and best self, participants will explore what matters and what counts and how to get clear, courageous, and into action right now.

One of the unique niches of my coaching practice is in the area of transformative awareness. Rigorously trained as a facilitator of the Transformative Game® by its creators, Joy Drake and Kathy Tyler from Findhorn, Scotland, I utilize the advanced version of this board game as a way to jump start an exploration for those who are in transition and searching for a new awareness and direction.
Based on the principle that the Universe responds to our clear intentions, players begin by setting a playing focus, which serves as the context for their game. Centered around a board with individual "life paths" symbolizing each player's world, the Game allows seekers to explore the deepest levels of their being and receive guidance and inspiration.
The Game is a powerful interactive tool, offered in a stimulating, and supportive group setting in which openness, cooperation, and sharing are encouraged. As a coach and facilitator, I guide each player to draw forth their wisdom and creativity. As a follow-up, traditional individual or group coaching sessions are offered, so that the experiences of the game can be used as a springboard for personal growth and development at any stage on life's journey.
Buckminster Fuller likens intuition to cosmic fishing. "You feel the nibble, and then you have to hook the fish." Intuitive Solutions® provides a delightful hour or so of exploring one's inner ocean in this special way. It is based on the Transformation Game® which is a sophisticated and multifaceted opportunity for thinking out of the box and incorporating one's inner wisdom in making vital choices. This short program introduces participants to these tools and shares ways that they might be useful into one's personal and professional life.
