How I Opened My Own Doors Within:

Like you, I have been on an ever-changing and always perfect journey called “Life.”
Thank you for being here to explore how to open your doors within and here is how I opened mine:
The Perfect Storm
Following my heart has always been an easy thing for me. At 17-years-old, I left my family home in the San Francisco Bay area and moved to the Sierra Nevada mountains. Although I didn’t know it at the time, I was manifesting my dream life.
I surrounded myself with nature, I created my community of friends who I still consider my family today, met my amazing husband and together we built our beautiful home and had two lovely children. I did work I loved, spent summers at our lakeside cabin and winters skiing between 50-100 days a year.
When my husband Larry asked me to move from our beautiful home and life in the mountains of California to the isolated east coast of New Zealand, I thought “Sure. Let’s go on an adventure”. And, adventure we did!
I had no idea how painful and difficult an internal journey this would be. I struggled for three years…my heart was ripped apart. I felt alone, lost, and helpless. And, I was literally at the edge of the world, completely surrounded by unbelievable beauty, enchantment and solitude. I had created the “perfect storm” for transformation.
I had created my dream life in the mountains of California, yet it was moving to New Zealand where I discovered the true “secrets” of lasting happiness and love.
My Life Lesson
Thankfully, I had an amazing coach at the time who walked alongside me. With her support and incredible wisdom, I acquired the tools and information to lovingly be there for myself in all the ways I had wanted others to be there for me.
Together, we gently dismantled my inner world and looked at the core of what was really creating my deep uncertainty, pain and sorrow. We looked at my fears, my beliefs, my thoughts, my feelings, old wounds from the past and the stories I was telling myself and the world. Our time together was life changing for me.
Here’s What I Know Today
Happiness and love do not come in the form of another person, a career, any amount of money, where you live or how small, firm, or healthy your body is.
True and lasting happiness and love are inside of you. When you can find these within, you have the freedom to create a loving and joyful life no matter what’s going on around you. When you are happy on the inside, almost like magic, you attract and joyfully create all those things you desire, such as a loving relationship, healthy body, abundance and prosperity and a career you’re passionate about. It all begins within you.
Who I am Today
I’m a Certified, Professional Co-Active Coach, professionally certified by The Coaches Training Institute in San Rafael, California and a member of ICF. I’ve extensively studied metaphysics over the last 20 years with teachers around the world.
Happily married to my soul mate since 1981, I run programs and retreats between our home in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand and our lakeside cottage in Northern California. I believe my own happiness and life is a reflection of my work and my most potent credential.
