On a pain scale of zero to ten my hip pain went from an eight to a zero. And it's held for a month except for small twinges that I can take care of by using EFT myself. The effect my emotions have on my physical well being is amazing. It's equally amazing to know that it's possible to bring healing to myself with my own words and gentle tapping. Laurie, your work helping others to heal themselves is greatly appreciated.
am an ambitious, productive, visionary coach, artist and healer. I am
also a fearful procrastinator whose first impulse is to hide under the
covers with a package of Oreos. I’ve had to use many tools to move
forward in my own life, and one of the best is coaching. I became a
coach so I could pass along what worked for me.
Here's what I'm brilliant at: seeing your gifts and releasing the traumatic blocks that are standing in the way of them being lived powerfully in the world. I have many success stories and enthusiastic clients to prove it.
own path has been twisty. It's "taken a village" to help me connect my
life purpose to how I earn a living, so I have lots of compassion for my
clients who experience confusion and paralysis.
I graduated from University of Colorado with a fine arts degree, moved to San Francisco and started working as a graphic designer. Eight years later I moved to Minneapolis with my first husband so he could go to graduate school. His chronic alcoholism eventually led to his suicide. My own use of alcohol and food got out of control and I ended up in several recovery programs. Part of my recovery involved mentoring others and I discovered that I was really good at it. That was 24 years ago.
When coaching emerged as a profession in the 1990s, I took some training so I could become a better mentor. I fell in love with the work and the community. That was 16 years ago and my practice has grown steadily over that time.
years ago I started using a tool called Emotional Freedom Techniques
(EFT) meridian tapping and experienced startling results in both myself
and my clients. I continue to use it daily.
I also helped start a workshop business called Vision Cards
— a method of finding a vision for your life, making visual reminder
cards, and using them on a daily basis for 30 seconds of self-hypnosis. I
used the Vision Cards to get out of debt, marry my second husband, and
find our house. Many of my 500+ cards have come true because of using
the Cards daily.
My latest co-creation is Art-o-mancy — blending coaching with art, divination, and lots of fun at the museum.
