Control Your Destiny

At times, you may struggle to find you meaning. By meaning, I am speaking about your purpose or significance. This could be in a relationship, at work, or in the community. This lack of clarity impacts how you convey yourself and the quality you bring. As a Coach, I partner with you in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires you to maximize your personal and professional potential. We will set goals that are significant, remove any obstacles or barriers to you reaching them, and ensure they are aligned with your values and passion.

Acupuncture and Type 2 Diabetes

Diabetes is one of the most prevalent health problems in the world today, and the number of people who have diabetes is growing dramatically. Keeping Type 2 Diabetes under control requires a lot of daily effort and working with a team of health care professionals who care about you. Acupuncture has been shown to help improve many types of disease related to endocrine function. Research has indicated that acupuncture treatment can help to reduce fasting and after-eating blood sugar levels, increase insulin production, and reduce insulin resistance. Regular follow-up appointments can result in a better maintained morning fasting blood glucose.

Which Wolf Are You Feeding?

There is an old wise tale about an inner fight that goes on between two wolves in the wild. One is harsh, angry, full of sorrow, regret and arrogance. Motivated by self-pity and filled with false pride, greed and ego. The other wolf is full of joy, lightness, nurturance, hope, love, humility, kindness, generosity, compassion and trust. That same wolf struggle resides in each one of us at different times in our lives and we are often hard on ourselves when fighting our demons. When asked which wolf wins the battle? The wise one responds: “it all depends, which one you decide to feed”.

Optimize Your Golf Game!

Have you taken that first swing of the day and felt like things just aren’t moving right? Whether you are late for your tee time, focused on your first big drive, or catching up with your friends, it is easy to forget the importance of a good warm up. Your warmup can be the difference between a great day on the course, or a frustrating day with fifteen bogies and a strained rotator cuff. Even before trying your warm up swings, you should start with a routine of stretching and mobility exercises. This includes warming up your shoulders, thoracic spine, lumbar spine, hip mobility…and gets the blood pumping!

Allergy Season Is Back

Many people suffering from head pressure, itchy eyes, and a runny or stuffy nose this allergy season will find only temporary relief, or no relief at all, from over-the-counter remedies. Alternative approaches, such as nutritional supplementation and Biofeedback focus on more than just symptomatic relief. They enable the body’s ability to remove existing allergens embedded in the sinus tissues, thereby minimizing the histamine and inflammatory reactions. This stops the over-production of mucus that the body makes to try and push the allergens out. Take a different approach this allergy season – treat the cause, not just the symptoms.

Connecting With Our Many Selves

Our identity is made up of many different selves. There is a responsible adult part, a wild, shy and spirited child, creative dreamer, caretaker, vulnerable pleaser, rescuer, adventurer and the list continues. Not all these different aspects blend easily together and some even conflict or oppose one another. When the different parts clash such as the child and responsible adult, we end up compartmentalizing and suppressing an aspect of ourselves to ease the conflict. While in the short term it feels better, the longer more sustainable solution is for the two selves to exist peacefully inside us. Journaling can help identify and integrate to discover what is needed for more harmony to exist within. When the many selves interconnect, they become more integrated and whole.

Nature Coaching

Nature Coaching is an approach developed in connection with nature. Coaching sessions are carried out in the natural environment. This generates relaxation and enjoyment for the Coachee through sounds, scents, and visuals. Research shows that nature positively impacts our well-being. It helps you feel centered and aligned with your needs, values, objectives, and actions. It strengthens your decision-making skills and self-esteem. You feel more yourself and discover your uniqueness. The role of the Coach is to unite you with the natural elements around you, either created indoors or outdoors, to facilitate expanded awareness, observation, listening, and general connection to nature.
