Key Questions/Topics Covered
How did you get into this profession?
After suffering multiple close personal losses, I found myself struggling emotionally on the inside. I was still showing up every day and doing a great job, getting promoted, but I was a mess on the inside. People don’t like to talk about negative emotions, especially in the workplace. I needed to learn how to feel all my emotions, positive and negative, which I found was empowering. And it helped me both professionally and personally. I wanted to take what I learned and educate others and bring awareness.
What trends are you seeing with your clients now?
Times have been tough on everyone. I find my clients come to me with all these emotions but still want to show up and succeed. The problem is they think they can’t do both.
What are your insights on women's relationships with each other and dealing with intimidating or hostile situations in the workplace?
I find that many of the issues women have with each other come down to insecurities with themselves. Our insecurities will show up in our relationships. Ask yourself, “How are you talking to yourself? How are you treating yourself?’ Take responsibility from a loving place and realize that the change starts with you.
When dealing with intimidating or hostile situations in the workplace, acknowledge that it’s hard and uncomfortable. Focus on who you want to be in this environment and how you want to act or respond.
Do you find that women come to you with the same goals in mind?
I find that most are looking to build confidence. But everyone is different and an individual. I will interview them regarding three foundations for strong relationships, love, trust, and commitment. I start by focusing on the one they struggle with the most and go from there. Once all the foundations are rolling and working, there you will find confidence.
How do I know if I could benefit from having an emotional coach?
You don’t need to wait until you are that person arguing with another over a trivial matter.
