Is Self-Confidence the Key to Happiness?
It seems obvious that self-confidence might be a necessary ingredient for greater happiness and personal satisfaction. But according to Psychology Today, self-confidence is the essential ingredient when it comes to living a happy life. It’s tied to reducing fear and anxiety, and creating the resiliency to handle life’s rocky moments. So, why is it that […]
Are You Ready to Shift Your Life?
I’m writing this on my flight back from London, which proved to be a pivotal experience for me. Rarely in our lives do we find ourselves in the real-time of experiencing a moment of true transformation. And having the honor of speaking at Hay House UK’s ignite conference was one of those moments. As most […]
Feeling More Juicy and Alive at 50 Than Ever Before
As you read this – on my actual 50th birthday – I’ll have already been swept away by my beau to an undisclosed location for a surprise getaway celebration.

Create the Life You Have Always Desired
Yesterday was the second anniversary of Debbie Ford’s passing. Two years have gone by already. It’s hard to believe. I can’t really wrap my brain around her not being here anymore physically.

The brave women in my Summer 2014 Jump! Coaching Group are bonding, growing, and realizing their own strength and courage. Last week we took Step 2 and began telling our truth to someone safe. While we’re each other’s “someone safe” here in our group, many were also able to confide in the people they’d designated […]
The Shadow + Money
Hi – Happy Monday! I want to share a couple of phenomenal experiences and resources with you that changed my life – for real! – and also have the power to change yours! On February 25, 2010 – my 45th birthday – I flew into the arms of Debbie Ford, best-selling author of several books including The Dark […]
As I prepare to embark on the final module of my groundbreaking Breakthrough Shadow Coaching Training Program I find myself thinking a lot about wholeness, since it’s the very definition of integrity. And how we’re out of integrity as soon as we begin to separate from ourselves, disowning the parts that we can’t be with. I keep visualizing […]
unbound I was beyond honored when my dear friend Debbie Ford asked me to write a poem (see below!) for inclusion in her new book Courage: Overcoming Fear & Igniting Self-Confidence, and then totally blown away when she let me know that my poem will actually open the entire book…followed by a fabulous Forward by another near and […]
