welcome-pinkWhy work with me? I love what I do! I have been told I am “wise”. I bring humor and perspective to our coaching conversations.

We might have a vision of what we want our lives to look like but are just not sure how to get there. It can be stressful and impact our health and happiness.

I don’t believe “one size fits all” for anything (including hats, swimsuits and underwear). Everyone moves forward at their own pace. I was successful at making changes because I did it at the right time and in the way that was good for me. As your coach, I don’t tell you what you should do because it’s not effective. However, I will work as hard as you do to listen and help you find the answers that are right for YOU. Together, with some good coaching, everything feels more manageable and ultimately you will achieve your goals at the right time.

I believe in you while you feel unsteady. I share what I have learned so you don’t feel so stuck and alone. Watch a video on Felicia’s philosophy of coaching.

“Sticks and Stone”

“Sticks” monotype by Maura Koutoujian (credit Marketa Sivek Gallery, Chicago)

 

Today something broke open

I could feel it bubbling to the surface like a scuba diver’s air bubbles

Buoyant, purposeful, unrelenting, and clear

“You are so strong, silent, and calm on the outside”

“She’s like a rock”

Those have been left behind on a beach for someone else to discover and save in a jar

I always thought change would be a foreign invader conquering the weak

But it’s an old flame

A steady and consistent light that glimmers in the fog

It came from such a simple element many eons ago

Strength and resilience passed down over generations through DNA

Survivors, seekers, entrepreneurs, artists, ship captains, warriors

Once a small voice; it was just a faint whisper in my ear

Sometimes I thought I had only imagined it

The sound became clearer and carried further by wind and time

As it increased in volume I could start to feel it reverberate in my chest

Until it was so loud that now it’s a ROAR

I wore so many hats: 1st mate, passenger, engineer, radio controller, helm, and captain

“All me” says my ego

In truth, lot of hands helped me pass the buckets when bailing out

I finally realized that you can’t stop water but you can float

Allowing isn’t giving up as much as quiet persistence without clenched fists

I allowed nature to transmute the landscape it touched; instead of seeing it as a force to be tamed or managed

It became my creative partner

Something once so heavy is now smooth and light

It’s a sea and I can’t call it back

Nor do I want to
