WHERE MY STORY BEGAN...

I was in a job that was not the right fit for me, unsatisfied in my relationships, and felt deeply out of touch with my authentic needs. I held onto resentment towards myself and others for where I was. I pictured myself continuing down this path, leading to an unsatisfying life of checking off items to fit ‘the mold.’  It felt impossible to identify how this sadness even originated and what my frustration was really about.

As I reached a breaking point with emotional and psychological pain, I began to ask myself: How did I get here? Why am I deeply miserable, when I have a life that could appear great to others? Who really am I and what are my needs? What would make me feel happy and alive?

With support from amazing health coaches, healthcare practitioners, friends, books, self care practices and deep self reflection, I found that clarity and compassion began to develop in my life. By no means do I have everything figured out now. I still get frustrated; feel sad, confused and overwhelmed at times; blame society, etc.

I do however feel more in touch with my authentic needs. Have more clarity around what does not work for me, and what makes me feel joyful. Have more awareness around my decisions and take ownership for my life choices. I have tools to foster more meaningful relationships with forgiveness. I prioritize the nutrition, movement, exercise, and rest I need to feel healthy and alive.

"Claire is a wonderful coach who takes the time to learn about the individual with whom she is working. I found the best part of working with her to be the nonjudgmental, supportive, and intelligent attitude that she has to offer. She helped me develop goals that I will continue to work toward even though our sessions have concluded. I strongly recommend choosing her as a coach."
