Do you ever feel like there’s supposed to be…more, somehow?
Do you ever wish your life were bigger, juicier, more joyful, more meaningful, only you can’t quite figure out how to get there?
Coaching can teach you how to partner with your own inner wisdom to build the life you thought was impossible. Coaching supports you in realizing your goals and desires, in any and all parts of your life where you’re not yet feeling fully energized and aligned with your heart’s longings.
In life coaching, you’ll have the chance to…
- get clearer on what you most deeply want
- explore how you could move yourself closer to that vision
- decide on steps you’re ready to take to make it happen—based on your own sense of what’s right for you
Ultimately, the goal is to build a life where what you do (the outside stuff) is deeply, joyfully aligned with who you are (the inner self). A life where you can be yourself and share your gifts with joy, because you know and trust that who you are is wonderful and worthy of full expression. A life where you get to be happy.
Is that too much to hope for?
I don’t think so.
I believe it’s possible for you.
How it works
How often we meet is up to you. Some people feel energized by meeting once a week or every two weeks; others prefer once a month. I encourage you to experiment with the timing and discover what works best for you.
Before each meeting, I’ll invite you to reflect in advance on what you’d like to focus on (though you can always change your mind in the moment). For example, we could focus on…
- Your work (paid or unpaid)
- Your relationships
- Your spiritual life
- Your finances
- Your health
- Your home/physical environment
- How you can have more fun (yes, fun!)
- Or anything else about yourself and your life that you’d like to explore
It’s entirely up to you. And it can change each time we meet, depending on whatever is most pressing or energizing for you in the moment.
Whatever you choose to focus on, we’ll explore your hopes, dreams, and visions for yourself—asking questions like, what do you really want? And how would things change if you got what you really want?
Toward the end of our conversation, I’ll invite you to think creatively about how you could move closer to your vision, and then decide for yourself what you’ll commit to. That’s always up to you too.
I have been working with Laura for several months now. Laura has helped me to uncover my life vision and create a clear roadmap for the journey. Laura is highly intuitive and compassionate--and often can hear what I may not be able to put into words. Her questions are thought-provoking and challenge me to align my actions with my vision. Anyone who meets Laura will immediately feel a sense of peace and gain a sense of empowerment knowing that they are not alone on their journey. I can unequivocally say that my life has been enriched through my coaching with Laura. I am forever grateful!

But wait, isn’t it selfish to focus so much on yourself?
This is such an important question for those of us who tend to put others first.
Rev. Dr. Howard Thurman, the great theologian of the Civil Rights Movement, once said:
Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
And then there’s the old Hasidic tale of Rabbi Zusya, as told by Martin Buber:
Before his death, Rabbi Zusya said, “In the coming world, they will not ask me: ‘Why were you not Moses?’ They will ask me: ‘Why were you not Zusya?'”
I believe the Source that created us all longs for you to be in the world exactly as yourself—not some other person, but you. And when you are fully yourself, the work you do will be powerful and effective, and your presence will be a radiant gift to everyone you meet.
So why not be yourself? Why not come alive?
Ultimately, that’s what coaching is all about—you, becoming yourself. Coming alive.
