So blessed! ”I’ve known Savannah for over 14 years. She guided me back from postpartum depression after the birth of my daughter many years ago and recently I have sought life coaching from her. Empathetic, kind and intelligent – I feel “heard” and understood for the first time in years. Her metaphors, humor and guidance have lifted me from a place of old, toxic patterns. She is, without question, the most emotionally gifted and empathetic human I have been fortunate enough to have in my life.”

Consistently transformative sessions! ”I first saw Savannah 3 years ago for about 5 months. I was a new mom and unhappy with my career decisions. Seeing her really helped to calm and ground me, and also to trust my own intuition about my next steps. I came back to see her recently and have found the same consistently transformative feedback and guidance. Seeing Savannah, I believe in the power of coaching to help me live the way I want to live my life. Every time, I feel more centered and confident about where I am going.”

Wise Intuitive Experience With Practical Solutions! “Working with Savannah has been a rich and wonderful experience. She immediately grasps what is important and hones in on it, even things I might have written off or not paid attention to. Her experience and resources helped me navigate a particularly challenging situation quickly and easily, saving me a lot of time and stress. My view of what is possible has expanded to include parts of myself and my life that I had forgotten about or given up on, and now I have a plan for how to get there.”

    I was sitting in the middle school library at my son’s school earlier this week for a very informative meeting, and I became completely distracted by something I saw posted on the wall. It was clearly applicable to the lives of the students, but as a coach, I was really tickled to see how applicable it is [...]

  • This is a guest post from Linda Chase who is joining me at Nurture Life Coaching to offer resume writing and consultations and interview preparation! I'm excited to send clients to her once they have identified what they want in their career transition. She can help close the deal! You can find out more about her here.  [...]

  • Most life and career coaching clients come to me because they want to solve a problem. They are willing to pay for expert support because they have tried everything on their own: read all the books, talked to friends and family, analyzed and over analyzed, consulted psychics/astrologers, prayed a lot, taken online tests...you get the picture. Maybe [...]

  • As a life coach for women, the month of January always brings the conversation of New Years Intentions. I prefer the word intention to resolution for a few reasons: Intentions are more flexible and adaptable. Resolutions carry the pressure of performance and obligation. And, our culture is just too fixated on the usual suspects when it comes [...]

  • This week I received an email from a discouraged career coaching client who didn't get the job. From her words, I could feel all the self-criticism and hopelessness that she was feeling. I am sharing with you my email pep talk because it applies to you (and me) too when things don't go the way we had planned. "YOU [...]

  • I have a favorite exercise from the wise Martha Beck that I like to use with clients to help them gain more clarity around decision making. Martha calls it the "Shackles On, Shackles Off" exercise. Here is my personal adaption: 1. Bring a memory to mind of a person, experience or place that makes you feel relaxed [...]

  • I’ve done a lot of scary things in my life, especially when I was younger and didn’t realize the risks I was taking. As we grow older, we take on a new relationship with risk. We begin to analyze more, make “better” choices, and think twice before doing things outside of our comfort zone. The funny thing [...]

  • By Zohar Manor-Abel, shared via Flickr To begin 2014, I have a simple question for you: Who do you want to be this year? You, like me and everyone else I have met so far, have many different selves inside.  It is almost like we have an inner choir of voices, often singing in different keys. You [...]

  • A couple of years ago, I completed a two-year intensive training in Hakomi Therapy with the META Institute. The most recent research in neurobiology shows that mindfulness-based therapy is very effective for long term sustainable change. My life and career coaching clients come to me for one primary reason: They are ready for Change! This recent article [...]

  • Since the recession, I have had more career coaching clients come into my practice even though I have always thought of myself as a life coach. It seems that the economy crashing encouraged people, even ones who still had fairly secure jobs, to question how they were investing so many of the precious moments of their lives. [...]

  • In my experience with my coaching clients, myself and other humans, I have discovered that the misalignment between WORD (what I say I want) and ACTION (what I do about it) comes from one of the following issues: I don’t really want what I SAY I want.  Instead, I am operating on an assumption about what I [...]

  • I am proud to announce that I have a new office space in the thriving Montavilla Business District in Portland, Oregon. It was a very quick move as Jyoti Family Wellness Center (my previous location) was asked to leave with only a couple of months notice so the landlord can remodel. It was hard to leave my [...]

  • Sometimes clients are surprised by how much we laugh during coaching sessions!  I have discovered that a playful and curious attitude toward even the trickiest problems helps to engage the creative and intuitive parts of the brain. Albert Einstein once said, "Play is the highest form of research." My clients are smart, conscious individuals who would "logic" [...]

  • Over the past few months, I have had the pleasure and honor of supporting Linda Chase in her One Week Job Project, Never Too Late!   This dedicated lady is not letting financial stress, single-parenthood, or job-market ageism hold her back from realizing her potential and going on an adventure that would daunt many a brave soul. [...]

  • There is a simple yet profound attitude shift that can make all the difference in how you feel about yourself as you focus on achieving your goals. As a recovering perfectionist (is there a 12 step group for us?), I have experienced great relief in shifting my mindset from "be good" to "get better." Photo by [...]
