My Motto to All of Life's Beauty and Challenges is BEGIN WITHIN.
I've always loved prisms, and years ago, when I was still working in the corporate world, I was given a beautiful crystal vase that acted as a "Prism". It was a gift for helping a team find the clarity needed to move through a period of deep transition and shine.
I've always know this is my "sweet spot", and as I matured, I realized these intuitive gifts from an Inner Source were to be used to help others find their own Light and Shine.
We all experience times in our lives when our light is dulled, dimmed, obscured, or perhaps almost snuffed out.
We just. feel. stuck.
It doesn't need to continue this way.
Sometimes we need help and support - someone to act as a prism for us - opening us to our inner white light and allowing our true colors to radiate throughout our entire being and into the greater world. This is my passion and my intention for YOU.
In our work together, you'll begin to see your True Radiant Light and Allow Yourself to Shine.
How I work: I'm the Owner and Founder of Prism Holistic Coaching and Consulting. I work with local and distant clients either in person and through Zoom Conference Calls (and sometimes both!).
To support clients and small businesses in a variety of challenges and transitions, I offer six and twelve month holistic coaching packages,
Looking to shift, transform and heal deeply? I also offer packages for Holistic Coaching with Reiki and Guided Meditatation- beautiful, spiritual practices of deep loving compassion to bring you back Home.
My greatest gift has been to be the Mom of 7 Beautiful Children who live, work, and study around the world. I'm a single Mom Who Loves My Work and Loves to Play. In my spare time, you'll find me out in Nature - walking, hiking, floating in water, or sitting in stillness. I'm a Writer, Reader, Researcher, and a Lover of All Things Beautiful - especially those things uniquely beautiful; for as so lovingly expressed by Antoine de Saint Exupéry, what is truly beautiful is often invisible to the eye.
