SELF CARE

“The practice of taking an active role in protecting one’s own well-being and happiness.”

This site includes a menu of self care options for the body, mind, and spirit. Coaching and classes are designed to recognize and to support your ability to release the emotional wounds of racial or sexual oppression . All of services are created from my life my experiences and exceptional training to add to your journey of self care.

Let us create our tomorrows , not from the damages of our emotional woundedness, but from connecting with our strong inner selves.

Coaching conversations and tools that address our emotional wellness are a very important part of self care for all times in our lives, and especially now in the midst of chaotic changes in society.

People look to leaders and educators for examples of what to do and how to be. Coaching conversations and tools create opportunities for ourselves to listen to our inner voice so we stay centered, grounded, and present as we let go of old ways and move forward . In this way , let us create our tomorrows not from the damages of our emotional woundedness, but rather from drawing from our strong inner selves.

“I appreciate Linda’s ability to listen without judgement, picking out salient points to work on and sharing tools to do so.  There were some new tools for me that were introduced and I’ve had a good time practicing them and adding them to my current practice.  The handouts were most helpful.

LouAnn , Nurse , Meditation Practitoner, Cannon Beach

” My personal experience of Linda’s coaching is that she holds a very warm,nurturing , yet strong space which allows a client to explore whatever and wherever they need to go to create their chosen outcomes. Linda has a unique ability to remain in unconditional positive regard of a client , meaning they never feel judged or put down. Linda has a way of gently and lovingly confronting a client to face things in a way that makes them feel empowered and excited to discover what’s in the way of them achieving their goals. She is comfortable around emotions and I would say that being coached by Linda is like being hugged in velvet. Her coaching style is from the heart and soul. I know that clients will enjoy working with her. ” Belinda Baillie , CEO , Global Coaching Academy
