Hellooooo and I hope it was a delightful Pride Weekend (it was just this past weekend here in Seattle).
Summer Support is still available, y’all… only because life continues to happen… 100% of the time.
Yup, trips to the beach, day trips or long weekends, concerts, hikes, and BBQs... so fun!
And.. so much extra work too… different groceries, packing, unpacking, communications with all sorts, pet care arrangements, work & managing days off… tons of additional details.
SO MUCH (more) ACTIVITY happens right about soon…
Moves and changes also happen over summertimes. People sometimes pass and die in the summer... Relationships change or break… diagnoses are sometimes discovered over summers....
Feelings emerge as you notice kids are growing up. Big time. There is value and tenderness in swimming parties, new shoes, and around the campfires… seeing your kids in the summer’s glow.
ALL of the emotions around previous summertime pains, changes, and flows may come forward to be acknowledged and honored.
The body remembers... and yes, it does keep the score as well...
This is real life and living...
And it's never moved so fast before.
It’s time for more support… not less
If you think you don’t have time… in fact, if you’re convinced there’s no possible way to engage in more support for yourself… well, you may in fact need it more than most.
With so much happening so quickly, I do encourage the idea that more support is actually NEEDED. –and I know this is exactly true for me too–
Now is the exact time to act and opt-in for more of your own well being... to include your own dear self... and to receive that loving support too. HeckYEAH!
SO you can ...
🥳Really BE at those BBQs to celebrate & relax… without missing a thing
😍 Absolutely BE more present with family members... no matter what is happening, or not happening
🥳Feel connected more easily and genuinely in any setting you choose to show up in… enjoy being pre-disposed to having a good time for yourself and with others
😎 Clearly and decidedly opt-out of anything you want with love and boundaries that honor and respect your own wishes
🤯Feel seen and heard by a professional coach as you feel, decide, and choose your own next right steps without having to take care of anyone else's feelings or ideas
🪨 Discover what it's like to BE and FEEL supported and cared for on days like Pride, and 4th of July, and also prep for the rest of the holidays of the year (if you desire)
Did you know?
Specific care, attention, and time receiving coaching support offloads challenging emotions, circumstances, and decisions with greater ease and efficiency so you actually GET MORE QUALITY SUMMER in your summer months.
A little time each week will go a long way, friends.
Zoom or phone so connecting is a breeze.
With more support, you actually get more time for YOU to spend and enjoy and relax... in these next months and beyond.

Setting yourself free is a worthy bucket list item.
Worthy, as in…
YOU are worthy… of this and more. Period.
Emergence can be experienced by any person moving through a transition, a challenge, a season, or into a new sense of self… some would call this a new sense of identity.
Emergence did not feel fabulous when I came out.
But it was necessary… and it was something I had to pay attention to.
Meaning, I couldn’t stuff it, deny it, avoid it, or resist it.
Was it inconvenient? For sure.
And worth it.
I felt so called (and called out) by Life… that I had to come out as a lesbian.
This was true for me… I came out when I was 32.
There have been mannnnny many stories of Emergence in my life.
This is one.
And it’s valuable.
And it’s mine.
If you’re moving through a tough transition… it’s okay if it doesn’t look like a glow up right now. This is a moment… and you deserve all of the love, care, and support that you want and need to get through to Emergence.
It’s a beautiful thing…. Your entire path and your whole self are beautiful and valuable.
I appreciate you and all of the courage it takes to continue moving forward, dear reader.
Life is not easy.
But wow, what a ride!
Here’s to a delightful Pride Weekend… for any and all who celebrate (hug!)
On going all in on your own dear self
The feedback I get in my work is that people tend to feel better when they are around me… and that my coaching works. If you’d like to talk about private coaching with me, here’s how to get started… and I wholeheartedly invite you!
Please complete a pre-consult application.
Just filling it out will also change your life...it is powerful… #justsayin
I'm ready... I got you... Let's GO!
In the United States, where I live, Father’s Day is coming up this weekend.
Whether your father, or father figure is a loved one, or a less-than-loved-one, this relationship may impact other relationships.
The dynamic may actually influence many other relationships… personal, romantic, business, or with other elders in your life.
Take a second and consider how that could be true for you.
It makes sense
When it comes to parental figures, (be they biological, adoptive, guardian, foster or otherwise) these are often some of the oldest relationships we have on the planet this time around.
There are beliefs, ideas, and traditions that may have been part of your growing up may be serving you really well… or not.
And some of what’s been taught to you may now be part of your unconscious mind.
This was true for me around how I was taught to save money, and what to save it for, based on how my dad did it.
What I didn’t take into account was this:
We were never building the same things.
We were never saving for the same things.
I felt that I had to do it the same way he did it, based on how I was brought up, what he lovingly suggested, which was all based on his own experience… in his career, and long retirement.
My work and career as a business owner, service provider, entrepreneur is radically different from anything he knows about work.
The way money is stewarded and needed as an entrepreneur is also different from what my dad knows of work. His care and attention about dollars and retirement are completely about him and his experience… and rightly so.
But I, with my creativity and independence and eagerness to do my own thing?
It was never going to look like, behave like, or appear similar in most ways to what my dad has built or what he knows.
With appreciation, when I understood this and saw it more plainly for my own self, I got to experience some relief from the pressure I applied to myself -for decades- since our paths, our affluence levels, and our results were very different… they were always going to be different… what changed was, I got to take myself off the hook for that simply being the case.
I stopped making myself wrong for what I was creating… as though is was less valuable or incorrect, since it didn’t follow what he demonstrated or offered guidance toward.
Valuing my own path, and how it looks and needs to work for me is actually more comfortable for me… it’s got it’s own learning curves, for sure… but I’ve got less judgement taking up my energy and this makes all the difference for me… and also for us.
I can appreciate my dad’s path and what he’s created and how he knew how to care for all of us in my family of origin (FOO)... His experience is about him… and I can see that and appreciate him more easily and genuinely when I also give my own path the value and respect it deserves.
It’s a process.
And it’s totally possible.
