The 3 Month Cycle - A Unique Approach To Coaching
Consultório coaching employs an unique and tested approach to transformational coaching. Working in cycles gives the client the opportunity to measure growth over time in a way that recognizes a beginning, middle and end. It’s great to know we’re going to participate in something for x number of months. Clients can measure their progress and process as they go through the cycles.
The cycles are not rigid programs or templates that a client follows to come out on the other side with a cookie-cutter result. They are more like strong containers that support individual exploration within some themes. More on that: Unlike a lot of other things out there in the coaching world, you won’t be squeezed into a rigid course or plan. You will, however; get structure, laser-pointed and loving guidance, and practical support.
We usually undertake them in sync with the season (whichever hemisphere you’re in) but they can also be taken ‘out of order’ if that’s what we deem to be best.

Beyond the Resolution
New Year & Beyond | Deep Work, Focus & Habits
Contrary to the popular belief, it takes more that 21 days to establish a habit. It’s generally around 66 days for a healthy habit to feel automatic. So let’s start with this 90 day cycle, and see where you go with it! Beyond the Resolution supports you in uncovering habitual patterns and shifting them in service of what you would like.
In this cycle you will define new goals, reinvent habits and settle vibrantly into your most productive and alive self.
Over three months you’ll commit to yourself as never before. Through balanced effort, and the support you’ll receive week after week through one one one coaching, you will experience changes you may have been seeking after for a long time.
All big things come from small beginnings.”- James Clear, Atomic Habits

Spring - Summer | Boundaries, Creativity & Flow
Experience unshakable trust as yourself, uncover ease in setting boundaries. Release habitual patterns of people-pleasing, co-dependency, selfishness and self-sacrifice. Inside you are resources for self-mastery.
This cycle is an invitation to open up them simply, with great care and ongoing support. To interrupt tired patterns in behavior and identity in oneself, is to discover, on one’s own terms, the responsibility and opportunity one has in re-imagining the world. Deepen truthfulness, increase ease and experience flow states as you honor boundaries and expansion of yourself in deeply satisfying ways.

Winter & All Year 2021 | Self Sourcing & Belonging
There’s no place like HOME. But what does that look like post Covid, now that everything is different?
This coaching cycle will help you find your footing or refine your steps in our strange, post covid era. Everything has changed, and we’re here for it. 2020 had many of us feeling lonely, displaced, cancelled, confused and disoriented. Now it’s 2021, and we’re not the same as we were before. We have one foot in the world as it was, and one foot in what is possible. We’re mid-stride and alive! This cycle is an emergent poem to the moment we’re living it. We’re off kilter, cockeyed, lopsided. We’re awkward and new.
You have solid foundations of your past. You have some new energy and vitality bubbling up. You have the blank canvas of now, and now you have Consultório somatic coaching to help you build new scaffolding and polish your wings. Together we will practice intention, attention and action to reveal HOME. Reach and take hold of life as it is now- and as you would like to to be. Get the TOOLS to do so
“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost.- Martha Graham

Late Summer - Fall | Form, Freedom & Abundance
The harvest is typically a time where people take stock of what they’ve grown. It’s also a time where our enjoyment is tempered and seasoned by the pull of letting go. It’s a special time where the preciousness of summer fades into the fertile ground of fall and starts to whisper about the winter months just around the corner.
But when we slow down here we find the most magical, intimate and tender time. Consultório is a cycle where you can turn toward inner guidance and cultivate inner listening.
This cycle makes abundance obvious and irresistible. It transforms grievance into generosity and generosity into more generosity.
It’s the right kind of holding and letting go. It teaches the power of exchange and the grace of change. You will grow in ways you really want to.

Client: “Wow, where to do I start? I am living from a place of joy even amidst rejection”

"Make the impossible possible,
make the possible easy and
make the easy elegant"
You’re in a transition. Something marvelous has happened, or something awful has happened, or nothing is happening. Something is changing in you, and you need reflection and refinement- you need to attune to yourself, so you can move differently. Consultório helps you hold complexity, get perspective and the space to shift. You hire me as your coach because you believe in growth, you like to be challenged, supported and you need someone who is radically present, embodied and helps you innovate.
Consultório Coaching and life coaching are not therapy. Coaches do not diagnose people, while therapists may determine pathologies to treat their patients clinically. Consultório doesn’t diagnose or treat illness. They are similar in that they each support people in making healthful changes in their own ways.
Generally speaking, therapy deals with healing from one’s past and life coaching deals with moving forward to achieve particular future goals. While of course these aren’t mutually exclusive; someone who has worked on their past in therapy is likely going to have a much different future than someone who hasn’t taken that lid off.
Consultório is unique in that it utilizes the present moment, to go backwards or forwards in time to help you understand yourself better. With embodied awareness you find new ways of doing things, and then you can go with greater freedom and clarity in the direction you choose to go. When you know where you’ve gone, and how it served you, you can discover new options. .
In short, the mind-body connection is knowing for yourself that you’re not a disconnected, separate self out there in the world. All beings have a bodymind and some sort of experience of their self. In this work, this is that is meant by somatic experience. We all have a common ground of being, and unique ways and means of expressing our self. You’re not just your thinking and you’re not just the rumbling sensations in your body. Relating to ourselves as only a ‘talking head’ leaves us up in the clouds and out of our sense and sensibility. We often hear the phrase ‘she was in her head about that.’ This usually implies being spacey, mired in stressful thinking and disconnected not just from our own body, but also from the soma (body) of earth and of other creatures great and small. I find that the whole body, whole self approach is useful when we want to engage change. In a mind-body approach we attend to our whole self, the parts and pieces, as well as the metaphor of ourself as whole. We experience our thinking, feeling, sensing, relational, wondrous, and ordinary self as we trouble ourselves with ourselves. It’s courageous, daring and darling.
- Creatives in need of ongoing accountability and feedback with themselves or through a project.
- People who don’t expect others to ‘fix’ them. But know they need support to ‘level up’ or lean into new areas.
- Educators, and Creatives who are feeling stagnant or stuck and who want to feel vibrant and alive – even in mundane situations.
- People who want to experience greater rapport (stop being at war) with themselves, other selves and life itself. MORE
“Coaching helps you stop the crazy mind chatter in your head that tells you all the time that you’re not good enough” – Oprah Winfrey
Committing to yourself over time through any process yields powerful results, no matter what it is, whatever you consistently do, will make a change in your experience. Coaching is no different, but it is exceptional and life changing. People who commit to being coached are more likely to achieve and exceed their goals and find treasures they didn’t even know they were looking for.
I created the cycles because it’s a unique way to measure growth over time in a digestible way. It’s informative and important to book-end experiences. The cycles do this by giving clients the chance to relate to a beginning, middle and end. After three months, clients look back and see how they’ve changed and track their process. Like nature has seasons and cycles so do humans and things. Lining up with seasonal cycles is a meaningful way to engage with the natural, multidimensional and iterative selves we are.
We will meet for 1 hour over zoom. Our session is tailored to you and as Ticht That Han says, to ‘Who you are today, darling’- In this way, no two sessions are identical, but you may explore the same theme(s) in different ways for as long as you need. In the sessions, you can expect to talk, listen, feel, and sense your body. You’ll experiment with new ways of relating to yourself through imagination, homework and practicing new skills. It’s typical for clients to feel emotions, have breakthrough in and between sessions, attend to sensations and to gain insight. There is typically some really good laughter that happens. We’ll check in on how it’s been going since our last session, what it’s like now and what you’d like to explore or work through today.
