   Dear Readers,

Welcome to Stepping Into Transition, the newsletter designed to help you navigate your way through the challenges of change into an authentic and empowered life.

  • Be The Hero Of Your Life
  •   Isn't it interesting how mythic movies such as Star Wars and Lord Of the Rings can move us deeply as we see characters face great challenges, uncover hidden strenghths and live heroic lives. What if everytime you faced a challenge and moved through your doubts or fears to accomplish something important to you, you saw yourself as a hero. How could this shift in perspective help you to see your everyday struggles or frustrations in a new light that inspires you?

    The hero's journey is not just in movies and books but is also alive within you just waiting for you to discover it. When you can tap into your own hero's story, you can then see all the things that happen to you as lessons to be learned, wisdom to be attained and hidden strengths to be revealed.

    By seeing yourself as heroic you can start to transcend the mundane into something more important and vital, and this will keep you going even when you feel like giving up. This is because from the hero's eye your vision always remains in sight and the small stuff does not get to you as easily.

  • Coaching The Heroic Life
  •   When my clients come to me for coaching, many are in a time of transition and uncertain about their direction. They do know they want to make a change and are willing to open the door to what's next.

    The coaching process gives them the clarity, confidence and the tools to uncover what will be the most fulfilling utilization of their unique strengths and talents. I view them as nothing less than heroes and I am honored to be a partner with them as they undertake the journey.

    If you are ready for your own heroic journey, please contact me to schedule a 30 minute complimentary coaching session. To schedule your session, please send your e mail to or call 919-621-1578.

  • Original Song To Inspire-Everlasting
  •   Some of you may know that one of my passions is music. I play piano and compose music. I would describe my style as a blend of jazz, new age and pop. Recently I wrote a song that I'd like to put out there. I believe it has an uplifting message about love and moving forward towards a positive vision. Below is a portion of the lyric. The song with piano, congas,bass,vibes and acoustic guitar with my vocal is linked below. Enjoy.
