Get to know Barbara
My purpose is to inspire people to reach for their full potential and give their gifts to the world. I believe life is a journey not a destination and I am passionate about partnering with people on their adventure.
I am a seasoned and experienced transformational coach and educator. I have been a coach, my fourth professional career, since 1998. Through these transitions I have been through some of the lowest points in my life and some of the most exhilarating experiences I have ever had. I know the frustration and angst of having conflicts in important personal relationships. I’ve felt the despair of starting over after the “great recession”. In 2016 I was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease that calls for a ‘new normal’ on a daily basis.
Like so many others, I find courage and strength to say Yes to my ‘new normal’ by applying the work of transformational coaching to my own life. More often than not, it’s my disempowering, unexamined thinking, my stories about myself and what’s possible along, with the accompanying mood and body posture, that limits or stops me. I’ve experienced what happens when I believe those thoughts! On the other hand, and most importantly, I have experienced how powerful it is to expand my story and my way of being, finding courage and vulnerability to say Yes! to the next dream.
It’s always an honor to work with people who are willing to step out of their comfort zone and create a life that brings the experience of happiness and a life well lived. If you would like to find out more, I’d love to hear from you.
