Taking Center Stage

Investing in your transformation is priceless.

When you are intentional about how you invest your time, money and resources, you are actively taking a step to changing your life.

One client shared with me yesterday, that the investment in carving out time with her dog and working with a professional, she shared that yes her dog is a different dog than when we started, but her intimate and other professionals relationships have changed too.

This amazes her, but doesn’t surprise me. All of our relationships are interwoven together and taking center stage is you.

You are the one who has the primary role in your life.

Your confidence and honoring your inner wisdom allows you to freely express yourself because you trust who you are and you stand firm in your values.

The same person shared how now she can confidently and unwaveringly take action with her dog in a do no harm manner even when other “strategies” are suggested by those around her.

The ripples of learning move beyond the human and dog bond. The ripples influence and shape other connections too because you transform.

Another client shared with me that she prefers the approach of co-creating a training plan. She’s worked with others who tell her what to do, but they don’t listen to what she has to say.

Often, in the dog training space, professionals have their own judgments of what is needed for the client and their dog without hearing what the person is saying about what their dog needs or wants.

This is a common theme many of my clients shared with me along the way.

I deeply listen to what you communicate as your desire and what you envision for your future.

When we work together, you create your vision of what you desire your life to look like and I guide you along the way.

I support you by helping you get really clear on where you want to go and what next step is aligned for you, not what’s best for me.

The work we get to do together is much more about supporting you in how you make the choice to show up for yourself, others and your companion animals.

You gain more self awareness, how to live more presently and discovering your own empowerment that is laying in plain sight.

When you discover your own empowerment, you make choices from a more confident place and your trust for yourself grows.

Curious about what this gets to look like for you? Schedule a time to connect with me.
