Resistance to change is a natural part of the process!

Change is intrinsic to our experience as humans, but sometimes it can be really hard to navigate. When we’re lost in a fog of too many options, or when we’re crippled from the emotional hardship of life's challenges, often we feel mired and unable to move forward.

I call periods like this “being in the soup.” When a caterpillar is in the process of becoming a butterfly, inside its chrysalis it literally dissolves into a "soup". It’s no longer a caterpillar, and it definitely hasn't become a butterfly, it's somewhere in between. Interestingly, this soup is made of something called imaginal cells, as though the caterpillar has to imagine its way into becoming a butterfly.

It’s really common to feel trapped in the stage where you’re no longer what you have been, but aren’t yet what you’re becoming. It's also common to feel hopeless about what's going on in the world around us or within us, and to feel like there's nothing we can do about it. Most of us weren’t given tools to troubleshoot our psyches. This is why it’s so important to have a strong support system, people who have a different or broader perspective, and can guide you through.

If you’re “in the soup,” or if a significant transformative shift in your life sounds like something you want to explore, I can help.

 

 

Services

Wherever you are in your process, our time together will include the mindfulness training, holistic thinking, and resistance awareness that promotes true transformation.

 
 

Figuring out where to start

A lot of us have a sense that something isn’t right, or that something needs to change in our lives, but we have no idea where to begin. Fortunately, you don’t have to go through it alone. I give you plenty of support and guidance to help you clarify which aspect(s) of your life need to be transformed, and how to make the change.

 

Help with follow-through             

Sometimes knowing what you want isn’t enough; we’ve all needed accountability now and again. You’ll get a step-by-step plan that outlines how to get from where you are now to where you want to end up, with regular support to ensure you’re sticking to it—and tips and tricks to help keep you moving forward.

Identifying what’s holding you back

If you know what you want, and you know what it will take to get it, but you’re still not there, you’re not alone. There are many kinds of resistance, both internal and external, that can keep us from our goals. I help you troubleshoot your process and plan, so you can leap the hurdles you’ve encountered and get back on track to completion.

 

Overcoming resistance you’ve identified

Sometimes we know exactly what the problem is, but for the life of us we can’t figure out what to do about it, or we feel trapped. You and I will work together to figure out how you can regain control over your trajectory, and finally experience the transformation your heart is longing for.

 
 

We'll start with a free 30 minute consultation which will include discussing the pricing option that will meet your needs. A sliding scale is available to people in marginalized social groups (POC, LGBTQIA, low wage earners). If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

 
 
 

Speaking and group facilitation

Whether the members of your group need to progress toward goals separately or as a team, Butterfly Soup offers a functional modality that will help your organization identify pain points more effectively and apply transformational principles to drive your team forward to success. Mindfulness training can have a remarkable impact on organizational culture, providing a marked increase in members' happiness and productivity.

about

I’d always had a burning curiosity to understand the how’s and why’s of the world, which led to a self-guided education in psychology, anthropology, political science, economics, literature, metaphysics, and systems theory.

I regularly considered going back to school for an advanced degree, but it seems to me that in this modern age of advanced technology and declining academic standards, a formal education is less effective and less meaningful than it has been in generations past.

Instead, I focused my attention on understanding how all of the elements I was learning about intersected and informed one another, developing a holographic framework to better make sense of our cultural trajectory and my place in it.

One day I realized I’d had all the jobs that I wanted, in all of the industries that fueled my passion. I’d produced television, designed video games, consulted for startups, managed corporate compliance, had a brief stint in publishing, even slung cocktails behind a bar.

I’d also seen what worked, and what didn’t, as people moved through their lives and careers. I’d paid attention to who was able to achieve success, and who seemed to flounder, and I’d seen a series of patterns emerging.

So I decided to turn my attention to helping others experience the same joy and success that I had attained, and put those observations to better use.

I’ve helped people with a wide variety of challenges and goals, from figuring out how to start a business or change the way their business functions, to finding the courage to start (or stop) a romantic relationship. Finding a dream job that will bring true fulfillment, finishing an artistic project that has lingered for months or years, even just finding a way to feel OK and find hope in this world of uncertainty. I’d love the chance to help you, too!
