TIME DOES NOT HEAL ALL WOUNDS

LOSS LEAVES YOU SHATTERED;  LEARN HOW TO PICK UP YOUR BROKEN PIECES AND CREATE A BEAUTIFUL LIFE.

You don't have to walk this road alone. Have someone in your corner that knows the way -

we are your people. Lean into us; we'll lead the way. 

My passion is helping people through the gap of transition - going from where you find yourself today and arriving to the life you truly desire. My programs and philosophies are developed from the streets of real-life experience. I developed a system, strategy, and playbook after having to pick up the pieces after losing my husband during a grueling fifteen month leukemia battle. Myself and our team of Grief and Loss Coaches have now used these systems and strategies to impact people across the country and now reaching and lifting people up from around the world. 

 

If you have experienced a tragic loss, you have reached a spot of transition in your life. An important moment that defines who you will be as you step into your next chapter and determines the quality of how you will live the remainder of your days on this earth. Living an extraordinary life after devastating loss will require intentional action - clarity of exactly what you want, an actual plan to get there, discovering what is holding you back, and accountability to the results. You will learn the importance of the "the gap" and the significant impact this will have on you as we begin a relentless pursuit of the other side and the accomplishment of closing that gap. You have taken a big step to be here reading this, ready to conquer what most will not be brave enough to pursue .. stop allowing what life has handed you to control and define you. Go from merely existing to really living again. 

I arrived to transition and had to face my gap after my husband's death. It was my moment and I had 2 choices:

  • Live with a cloud over my head, allow the sadness to consume me; and let what happened to our family define our future. 

  • Push for the greatness in life we always pursued; find purpose and significance for the next chapter of my life and live it ferociously and boldly.

Honestly, there were days I didn’t want to. It was so much easier to lay on the couch and cry because of what happened TO ME than to build the life I desired FOR US.

But that fire of love for Jon, our daughters, and for my own life wouldn’t let me stay on the couch.

It woke me up at night with dreams of a joyful family unit again. It sparked a desire my purpose to be re-awakened. It made me BOLD. Bold to speak up for what I wanted for my life; because I realized how fleeting time is. Bold to go after love again when it presented. Bold to know what is best for us and not allow the opinions of those around me control my decisions. BOLD. Bold to Impact lives and use the very painful journey we lived to inspire and encourage others. Bold to take the heart that Jon and I had for people - and give it to those people.

This is also where I broke free of my limiting belief - the conflict between what I wanted for my girls & I and what I really believed we could have. I found myself driven by fear, uncertainty, limiting beliefs, a need to please those around me, and a comfort zone.

We encourage you to sign up for a free coaching session to experience how we help.

GET ON THE PATH TO CLOSING YOUR GAP

We connect with our clients each week for one hour either in person or virtually. Clients leverage our coaching in two settings: one-on-one or in one of our groups with like-minded peers who have faced the same road as you and are moving to their victory with team support. 

When I was in the gap and looking for support my two choices were: coordinate childcare on a Monday night - finish baths, dinner, homework, etc.. early so I could drive nearly 60 miles to a support group where we talked about how much our loss hurt, all the ways we were fumbling around doing life without our spouses, an open forum session where one could talk and find validation and be heard;  the other option being one that was about half the distance but the same struggles getting there with two little ones at home. I literally paid $15 for supplies, we watched a series of videos on an old television, said a prayer and got a pat on the back as we left if we read our book and answered our questions that week.

With this being my experience and struggle when I desperately needed the community, it was imperative that I developed a program that was effective virtually - their antiquated systems totally overlooked technology and the fact that state-of-the-art video conferencing is now available; which would allow a mom with kids (or anyone for that matter) to attend at their convenience and with no compromise on the results. Meeting virtually has allowed us to do one-on-one coaching regardless of your location and to draw in people from all across the globe to create the best group dynamics by personality and chapters of life in our groups. At the end of the day, this is about getting results and lasting change; finding hope and healing while moving forward into the great things that life has for you! 

These aren't counseling sessions. We will offer support and a platform for you to openly express and work through your grief, but only while we hold you accountable to results as we work through your playbook to achieve the life that you desire after your tragedy. We are unlike you have seen in the grief support network

.. we have literally shaken the foundations of the traditional approach to life after loss / transition.

If committing to coaching seems like too much right now, let's chat.

IF YOU FEEL OVERWHELMED OR WEIGHED DOWN - LIKE YOU MAY NEED SOME GUIDANCE OR MUST GET HELP, BUT SIGNING UP FOR COACHING SEEMS LIKE TOO MUCH RIGHT NOW, I GET IT. GRAB A CUP OF COFFEE AND JOIN ME FOR A QUICK 15 MINUTE CHAT. I WANT TO HEAR YOUR STORY AND UNDERSTAND WHERE YOU'RE AT; I'LL EXPLAIN HOW WE'RE SUPPORTING OTHERS JUST LIKE YOU.  

FACE TO FACE SESSIONS

Meeting in person can sometimes offer advantages over virtual coaching, but is limited to those in the Naples, Florida area. We offer travel packages and do on-site coaching and onboarding for an additional fee.

VIDEOCONFERENCE SESSIONS

We use  state of the art video conferencing, making location not an issue. You'll be able to join from your safe, private, convenient place by computer or smart phone. All you need is an internet connection. 

TELEPHONE SESSIONS

Video conferencing is ideal for face-to-face connections and strategizing during our sessions, but we understand that life is busy. Sometimes it is necessary to receive support through a phone session.

INTERACTIVE

ON-THE-GO SUPPORT

Interactive support includes  unlimited email and text exchanges with your coach (as available), access to your group's private social platform for communicating and doing life with your tribe throughout week, and an online resource center. 

ELEVATE COACHING FAQ

What does a Transformation Coach do?


A Transformation coach encourages, motivates and advises you on a range of professional and personal issues. Coaching is distinct from giving advice, consulting, counseling, mentoring or therapy. You would hire a coach to help you with specific professional projects, personal goals and transitions. A coach helps you achieve growth by analyzing your current situation, identifying existing and potential challenges and obstacles, and developing a custom blueprint of action designed to help you achieve specific outcomes. The Transformation Coach / client relationship is a partnership where both parties are in a pursuit together to:

  • ​Gain clarity and outline the client's vision
  • Encourage the client's self-discovery
  • Use the Transformation Coach's expertise to assist the client in developing and implementing of goals and initiatives
  • Nurture and evoke strategies and an actionable plan around the blueprint to best achieve the clien't goals - matching their personality & vision
  • Set processes for measurement of progress / successes
  • Offer accountability and help the client tap into their inner strength and uncover their passions within to see their blueprint come to life




Coaching Misconceptions: THIS IS NOT THERAPY


It is understandable that you may be wondering what the difference is between a life coach and a therapist….the answer is that the variation is great, they are very different. Coaching accepts your current reality and looks to improve your outcome moving forward while bringing to life all that lies dormant within you. Your life coach does not treat childhood issues, depression, anxiety, etc... Future vs. Past Therapy will help you uncover and heal ailments from your past. This is vital for being able to forgive and move past hurtful experiences. Our coaches generally don’t spend much time in the stories of your past. We are interested and care about how you got to where you are now - but even more important to us is taking where you are now, identifying where you want to go, and helping you get there to maximize your potential. A transformation coach will bring focus on looking and moving forward toward your future with momentum. While they may offer you their expertise, suggestions, strategies, new ideas or action steps, they are not advice-givers. Most believe that their fulfillment / passions are hiding - like they are somewhere in the world and need to be found. And only then will they be able to live the life of passion they dream about. We believe that a person's passion cannot be controlled by anyone or anything, rather, it dwells within each one of us. If you are looking to achieve greatness in your life, to create and see growth personally or professionally, passion is the ingredient that once unveiled and tapped into makes us unstoppable. It's about asking the right questions and uncovering what you already have inside to help you find your path, your truth, your life filled with passion and purpose.




Coaching Misconceptions: SOLUTION FOCUSED vs PROBLEM FOCUSED


A therapist tends to work with more focus on the past - a certain problem you are having and moving backward to find what got you there in the first place. It is analytical, but not action-oriented. A life coach, on the other hand, is going to be focused on your now - creating solutions and cultivating an atmosphere that will get you from where you are to where you want to be. If you want to identify and cultivate your gifts and skills to live your purpose and passion each and every day then hiring an ELEVATE Transformation Coach to help you arrive at your best would be a great step for you. While your coach may help you deal with problems that arise along the way, the focus of the sessions and your work together will be on finding new ways of action and thinking that will help you to achieve your goals. Elevate Transformation Coaching isn’t therapy in disguise; it is a service designed to help ambitious people achieve more success while navigating their way through the complex issues following loss.




Qualities of a Transformation Coach


Because your Transformation Coach is a catalyst for individuals and organizations to uncover their greatness they are sure to become a trusted friend - after all, they want and expect the best from you. They will offer accountability and challenge you to perform at your peak. They are Motivators: A Transformation Coach is a source of motivation and inspiration that gives you the push you need to reach your full potential; that catalyst for growth. You need motivation and encouragement from outside of yourself to make a significant change. Coaches are with you every step of the way, helping you find ways to stay on track and motivated to accomplish the goals you set - and so much more. They are Strategists: Effective strategizing is essential for a coach. One of the first things a coach will do is ask very specific questions about what you want to accomplish and help you to clearly identify and define your goals. Efficiency is key to creating and keeping momentum to create lasting change. One of the benefits to working with a coach is that they assist you in realizing your dreams more quickly and efficiently. Accountability Partners A life coach is someone who will keep you accountable for reaching your goals and making positive changes. They maintain contact and check in throughout the process to make sure you are progressing and keeping your forward momentum. Many people tend to rely on friends and family for this role - in most cases these people are not living the life you desire and offer no real bar of accountability for raising your standards. A life coach will not just let your dream fizzle without saying anything about it and just pat you on the back for trying. They will hold you accountable to what you said you will do. They motivate and keep you from making excuses and allowing limiting beliefs that hold you back.




Why would you work with a Transformation Coach?


People choose to hire life coaches either because they are ready to break free from what has been holding them back from living the life they want or they are in a season of transition and want to live with intention and roadmap their destiny. They want to improve, be the best version of themselves, see more growth, and do these things quickly and more efficienty - because our time is valuable and we only have one life to live! People in all walks of life work with coaches - our clients include: entrepreneurs, executives, those entering the retirement stage, managers, professionals, small business owners, SAHMoms, and those dreaming of a better life after loss, divorce, or in your marriage. These people all identify a gap between where they are and where they want to be. You and your coach will set challenging, but achievable, goals. Your coach will ensure that you are not settling for limited goals or being too negative as you assess your position by helping you calibrate your long and short-term goals against your core values. These aspects of the process all work together to allow the client to maximize his or her potential, and research shows that coaching is a far more effective combination than training alone. In fact, training alone can increase productivity by 22.4%, but when combined with weekly life coaching, productivity is boosted by 88%. There’s a reason that life coaching is the second-fastest growing profession in the world –because it works for people. Few people can honestly say that they are already performing at the top of their game each and every day. If you are ready to truly maximize your human potential, and take your life to the next level, then it’s time to seek out a life coach.




How does coaching work?


Life coaching typically works like this: video conference meeting one hour per week (sometimes two or more depending on action items and the client's priorities and timelines). It’s a structured format, although your coach will ultimately work with you to create a custom action plan and blueprint. Assessing your current position helps you and your coach measure your progress and identify current and potential obstacles for achieving your life full of passion and purpose. You and your coach will work to:

  • Define your vision and gain clarity in your purpose – Get clear and focused on the goals and objectives that will radically change your life in the next year.
  • Identify barriers and limiting beliefs that have been holding you back so that you can move past them.
  • Achieve your health & fitness goals – Have more energy to live the life of purpose you are destined for, with accountability from a coach that pushes you, you're more likely to stay committed for lasting results.
  • Ignite passion in your relationships – Remove sabotaging habits and beliefs and allow yourself true connections and discover the key to fulfillment in all relationships.
  • Become a more effective leader – Break through limitations and gain the skills to persuade, inspire and connect with others.
  • Prepare for change – Tap into courage, strength, passion and confidence to overcome any challenge or change that life throws at you. Growth requires change.

Coaching Misconceptions: IT IS FOR PEOPLE WHO CAN'T SUCCEED ON THEIR OWN


“Coaching is only for people who have problems or who can’t succeed on their own.” Let’s take an objective look at all of the top performers and athletes in this world and realize one commonality: they all have a coach. And they place great value on the coach and the importance of their role in their life. Coaching is for anyone who wants to improve their performance, take massive action, and experience real results and growth in all areas of their life. The truth is that even the most skilled, successful people can benefit from coaching. A Transformation Coach is professionally trained to help you maximize your full potential and reach your desired results. Coaching focuses on helping another person learn in ways that allow him / her to keep growing. It is based on asking rather than telling, on provoking thought rather than giving directions, and on holding a person accountable for his or her goals. Broadly speaking, the purpose is to increase effectiveness, broaden thinking, identify strengths and development needs, and set and achieve challenging goals. While coaches do need to have great listening skills, delivering high-quality coaching is far more than just listening and giving advice. It demands that the coach be able to draw on a deep base of knowledge, experience and training to craft unique solutions for each scenario and work with the client to implement them. Coaches are objective and will offer unbiased opinions about how to move toward accomplishing your goals and most importantly implement and deploy the tools used for accountability to ensure the lasting change and meaningful long term results.
