what was what's new what's now
What was? What’s new? What’s now?™

As a coach, I help you explore these three little questions. They get you to think big about your life. You’ll come up with unexpected answers, ideas and solutions. This is the power of your truth. 

Our coaching opens a safe, brave space for uncovering your hidden strength and options. We’ll re-visit your past (what was). And, discover surprises (what’s new). This creates change (what’s now).

Could it be that older is the new younger? This is a super-dramatic improvement from July 2010, when 54-year-old me quit online dating in disgust. The whole process felt like such a …

What a relief. After a dozen post-divorce years of figuring out how to deal with the holidays, I actually had a very happy, stress-free Thanksgiving.
