My Story

Someone once told me that the person you are in the best position to help is yourself.

I know what feeling either anxious or depressed practically every day is all about.  I struggled with both of these feelings for the majority of my life.  After I hit my mid 40’s, my life followed a steady downward spiral starting with the destruction of close relationships, loss of a meaningful and challenging career, involvement in unhealthy relationships and ending with unwanted  financial pressure.  It all resulted in me daily experiencing heavy, toxic feelings of panic, desperation and anger.

When I finally ‘woke up’ to the realization that my life was heading towards a complete disaster, I felt trapped by my choices, unable to imagine anything different.  I could not think straight.  My mind was foggy, confused and overwhelmed.  I also felt intense shame and guilt.  I tried desperately to get through the day with a brave face, pretending everything was good, normal and on track.

Luckily, I wasn’t hiding it very well at all.

I am sure that she wasn’t the only one, but a close friend saw clear through my supposedly foolproof façade.  She could see that I was drowning and she was brave enough, cared enough to confront me about it.

“Karen,” she said, “I know someone you should talk to.  Someone who can help you sort out your anger, anxiousness and low mood.  Someone who will have your back.”

As you might expect, I was doubtful…skeptical…reluctant.

But I knew that I couldn’t keep going the way I was.

I went to my first coaching session not sure what to expect, desperately hoping for something – anything different, but not believing it would be found.

It can be different!

And the miracle is that it was.

My life has been profoundly changed.  I emerged free of my daily toxic experience of anxiety and depression.  My confidence and joy came back along with new tools, skills and strengths.   I started handling and responding to life and work situations differently, goodness started to show up as bad relationships went away and new healthy, supportive ones showed up, opportunities for growth revealed themselves and most amazingly, I had hope again about the future.

And I discovered a new passion, a passion to share this transformative coaching with others that are also struggling.  Please hear me….

It can be different!
