Changing the Internal Mean Girl into the Confident Woman

There seems to be an epidemic of women who walk around with an internal mean girl who criticizes them endlessly. How can we get rid of this mean girl?

Since most of my work time is spent with women, I've learned a lot about the internal workings of said women.  There seems to be an epidemic of women who […]



Losing My Voice

All of a sudden it was gone; my voice, my confidence, my ability to stay strong even in the face of disapproval or disagreement from others. How did this happen?

Losing my voice caught me off guard in that I thought I'd had it all figured out. My voice was strong, my confidence high, my place in the world solid […]



The Best Way to Get Unstuck

Here’s what my clients and friends tell me almost every day: “I’m stuck and I absolutely can’t get out of it.” They may be stuck in a relationship or in a bad mood or a job situation, but they absolutely feel stuck. Here’s the problem. They keep telling themselves that they can’t get out of it.

People Can’t Read Your Mind

Please start speaking up to ask for what you want. People can neither read your mind nor just know what you want. They can't. It's time for you to calmly and pleasantly ask for what you want.

Dear Women of the World,

Please start speaking up to ask for what you want. People can neither read your mind nor just know what you want. They can't. It's […]



Walking My Talk

Like many women, I’ve spent much of my life thinking that my appearance was the most important aspect of me. It was hard for me to realize that I haven’t shed all of that nonsense. Not by a long shot. Back to the drawing board for me.

A few weeks ago, I did a video shoot for my website. (Soon to be shared with all of you!) I was very excited in that it felt like the […]

How To Have A Wonderful Funeral

I walk out of many funerals motivated to do more with my life. All of the funerals are sad, but a few are sad because there is no wonder or joy in the eulogies given for the deceased. I’ve given this a great deal of thought and here are three ways to have a wonderful funeral.

My husband and I are at the age in which many of our friends are losing their parents. We find ourselves in the unenviable position of attending funerals throughout the […]



Because it’s 2016

I urge you to value yourself as much as you value others. To periodically (maybe even frequently) prioritize yourself as one who is more than worthy of love and care.

When newly elected Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, was asked why half of his cabinet was comprised of women, he responded, “Because it’s 2015.” That may stand as one of […]



Revisiting Health and Wellbeing (Before the Holiday Season)

What I often find is that when women want to lose weight simply to change their appearance, rarely are they making healthy choices in their lives. They are crash dieting, obsessive exercising, and looking for that quick fix weight loss pill.

Recently I wrote a blog for Mind Body Green about weight loss, health, and our mindset around these issues. Almost immediately after the blog was published, I received a Twitter […]

So how do I help my clients push through the conundrum and into the confidence connection? With three very specific and relatively simple steps:

Here’s what I hear from clients quite frequently: “I just don’t have the confidence to do that. I’m scared.” I get that, and I think it’s a normal emotion to […]
