I have a passion for really clear, compassionate communication, deep relationships, and strong connection. With a career spanning nursing, more than 20 years in senior human resources roles and inspirational, compassionate coaching in the corporate world, my work has always been about helping people. In fact, I’ve coached people in one way or another, all my life.
I grew up in Sydney, Australia and have lived in New York City since 2012. At the end of my first year here, my 20+ year marriage had hit a very rocky road. Within 6 months we had separated, I had moved apartments, had a stressful new job in a new city far from home, and a damaged relationship. I missed friends and family thousands of miles away, and had little emotional support on the ground in my new city.
Trying to focus on my job, I see-sawed between seething anger, emotional vulnerability, and moments of absolute clarity. Oh, and I spent too much time in bars.
Eventually I realized I could either let these negative feelings keep a tight grip on my attention and hold on to them forever, or find another way.
Fueled by a renewed spiritual faith, the love of some quickly bonding new friends, family far away, and a blinding commitment to finding the good in my situation, I decided to let go of the negativity and let forgiveness and understanding lead the way.
And gradually life opened up completely. I now have clarity about who I truly am, my life purpose, what I value, and what I will no longer tolerate.
I’ve seen how patience and understanding of my ex partner’s situation has lead to open communication and the setting of clear boundaries. We been able to define a respectful and deeply caring relationship which has taught me much about myself and given me the freedom to explore new relationships with confidence.
I know my experience has been unique and powerful, and it’s what has inspired me to deepen my coaching skills and work with others. Let’s face it - most people don’t feel this way about their Ex, right?
