Making Meaning Out of Your Year

For many it has been a year of great changes -some positive, some extremely difficult. As we move into these final days of the year, the relative quiet after the holiday rush can give us a few moments to slow down and reflect on our year.
Reflection provides the opportunity to learn and to make sense of our experiences.

Lives Transformed


Through our most recent coaching sessions, I started to realize that my thoughts are creating my world and the life that I am living in. The statement that we created in the last session together 'I am at peace and others love me exactly the way I am' is very powerful. I started to become aware of how often I am telling myself that others would not like me for who I am and I have to do more or be better so that others will love me. Only after I quiet down that inner voice, I am at peace with myself and others, and I can truly experience life.

Thank you very much for your coaching, Joan, as always!

Joan’s coaching made a huge difference in becoming more aware of myself and how I approached relationships. I am learning that when dating I don’t have to do all of the work. If a man really likes me he will make the appropriate moves towards me.
