Discover strategies for survival and empowerment for your cancer journey.
My approach with coaching is around transforming fear into a place of power and to support you to align with your wellness, health & healing. Using my own unique gifts as a healer, I combine practical spirituality and my life experience to help you live well with cancer or any other serious illness you may be facing.
I’ve just come out of 12 months of intensive treatment for advanced breast cancer—6 rounds of chemo, bi-lateral mastectomy, 33 rounds of radiation, and a second reconstructive surgery which occurred on my 44th birthday. From the experience, I created 12 Principles for Living Well With Cancer. Many of the principles I’ve already written about on my blog—things like Telling A New Story, Using Humor To Heal and Relieving Anxiety with Creativity, Art & Music. I personally believe the type of support this program offers is not currently available in any other support/survivor group meetings, not any I’ve been to and I attend a LOT of support group meetings.
My principles are about helping yourself come to terms with your diagnosis with grace, ride the wild bucking bronco that is cancer recovery in all its phases and ultimately collaborate with the miraculous ways your body already knows about healing itself. Let’s face it—without the support to help you see your journey differently, the anxiety & fear do NOT support the healing process—quite the contrary in fact! Healing is always about acceptance and acceptance doesn’t mean saying “Yay, I have cancer!” it means being able to take a deep breath, and be fully present in your new reality so you can meet what shows up with clarity & grace. And make the best possible choices for your treatment and a plan for what comes after treatment. Acceptance is about saying “Yes to life… even & especially with cancer.”
If you’re interested in truly helping yourself heal, instead of sharing/comparing the same frightening details about the cancer journey over and over again in a support group, I encourage you to set up a 20-minute coaching conversation with me. Paying-it-forward is my mission and I’m ready to help you navigate your journey to Wellness with grace, humor & optimysm.
