Discovering Relief for You and Your Dog

You’re struggling.

You recognize the dog you adopted and committed your life to isn’t the dog you initially envisioned.

You feel guilt for feeling this way because you recognize your companion is also a sentient being who needs connection with you.

But, you feel you can’t give anymore because you’re feeling disconnected from yourself too.

You’re overwhelmed and you become a dumping ground for other people’s judgments of what to do or even judgments of how you’re handling the situation.

You feel alone.

Still, you feel a shift in yourself.

You recognize you need a lifeline.

A life raft to carry you to safer waters.

You want to be seen and heard in how you want to move forward.

You, like you’re dog are seeking relief.

Relief from feeling isolated and disconnected.

Entering into a coaching relationship will provide you with the support you want and you’re looking for while also guiding you back to yourself to create the action steps you need to move forward.

You are the expert of yourself and your dog.

Just like any experts, having someone in your corner gives you connection with someone who will walk alongside you without judgment and widen your worldview when you feel stuck in the day to day.

Someone who can shine a light on your blind spots and brush off the path, so you can more clearly see where you want to go.

When you can feel more connected to yourself, you have more capacity to give to others.

You and your dog will benefit when you take the leap of faith and go all in on you and your growth.

Curious? Let’s chat!
