Hello, I’m Caroline.
Coach for Moms and Woman Warriors
Musician, Soul Satisfaction Seeker
Mom, Driver and Laundress
I work with moms who want to reconnect with themselves and regain control in their busy lives by taking supported steps to find a manageable balance between Motherhood and the rest of life.
Together we will break the well-worn cycle of self doubt and being overwhelmed to create a plan that will get you on the path you want to be on. I will listen without judgment and hold you accountable to your vision of your best self.
"I have come to believe that caring for myself is not self indulgent. Caring for myself is an act of survival."
- Audre Lorde
The birth of re:birth coaching ; ) I'm a Gemini. It has taken me a long time to understand what that means and to reconcile that, as hokey as it sounds. Geminis straddle 2 paths. There’s always the road we’re on and the road we coulda/woulda taken. For years I felt stuck in my life between the job I was doing—which had a very demanding schedule, lots of office hours and stress—and the life and career I wanted. These were two completely different paths that required wildly different skills and brought out different feelings and emotions in me.
After years of doing what I thought I was “supposed to do” and feeling like I had to stay in that world to be “successful,” I had a long and drawn out panic over not spending my life the way I wanted to, not giving to the world what I thought I had to offer. I wanted to do what came naturally to me, which was talking to people, drawing them out, and helping them with their challenges. I had been doing this for much of my life anyway with friends, but without formal training. I could see the life I wanted, working from a home office, creating a schedule that allowed me to be a present Mom and creating a good rapport with clients but not living on deadlines. Finally, the fear of not doing what I wanted became greater than the fear of trying something new. I followed what made me feel happy and excited when I thought about it and I decided to take a chance on a career change. I wanted to build a business around what I knew I was good at: working with people in pursuit of happiness, control, and calm—and with that I started my journey with IPEC to become a certified Life Coach and resolved to work with other women looking for more balance.
