Find your ground.
Erin listens without judgement. She has a perspective that improves my understanding of what I'm really dealing with. She pays attention to what the real issues are, things I may not see, and opens up ideas for me.

Through the coaching process, we will explore the ways self care is most relevant for you. True self care allows others to take care of their own emotional needs so that you can take care of yours. It’s about choosing to eat balanced meals, read beautiful poetry, and go to sleep at regular times—because these things make it possible for you to be of service in the world with energy, humor, focus, and purpose.

I define self care as the hard work of self-inquiry for the purpose of being of service to others. The self care I'm talking about is not a form of pampering, or something you do to recover from overextending. (Once you've overextended, it's no longer self care, but an opportunity to reevaluate the choices that are getting in the way of you being healthy, financially independent, mentally fit, and spiritually nourished.) Self care is something you do in the moment, every day.
You don’t need to make time to do self care. Overextending all week long, knowing that you have Saturday off to recover, is not sustainable long-term. Stress can lead to serious health consequences—such as heart disease, chronic pain, and a weakened immune response – that take time and energy away from your capacity to be centered, open, curious, and playful.
In our sessions together you will develop strategies for self care that are available to you in the moment. You will learn resilience practices that help you tune into your own sensations, and inner worlds, as well as focus on those around you, and your environment in a way that nourishes your sense of connection, belonging, and purpose.
When you truly care for yourself and make self care a discipline (just like brushing your teeth or wearing your seatbelt) you become stronger and more able to give to others. You become a more engaged business owner, a better teacher, a more capable parent, a kinder minister, a more loving spouse. When you practice self care, you make choices that are grounded in the innate wisdom of your body. You commit to the things that matter to you. You become the kind of person who walks the earth with a sense of sacred purpose and dignity.
