I am a retired teacher with over 25 years of experience working with adolescents through adults. I have certifications in multiple areas including, Elementary education, Secondary education – Social Studies and English, Special Education, Education Administration – Building and District level. I have thoroughly loved every moment of my teaching career! I have just decided that it is time to stop hiding behind the veil of curriculum to do what makes my heart “sing.” I believe I was put here on this Earth to be of service to anyone on their journey to becoming their best possible self.
My journey has certainly not been a straight and narrow path, rather one with dozens of twists and turns. When we are lacking in clarity, it may manifest itself in a variety of challenging ways. You may feel as if you are unsure of what your next steps are, can’t seem to set or accomplish goals, feel invisible, easily overwhelmed, lonely and disconnected, perhaps even feeling paralyzed by fear or insecurity. I know this simply because I have experienced all of these myself. There have been times in my life when I was scared, confused, lonely and powerless. Over the past 25 years, I have been a witness to the emergence of my own inner power. I have come to realize that it is the beauty of the joys as well as the obstacles that have led me to this point in my life where I can embrace myself exactly as I am. I have learned to let go of that which I cannot control and to allow myself to go with the flow. Since I’ve had the courage to let go, new doors have opened up and my life has become all the richer for it!
There is nothing more rewarding than having the opportunity to help people to discover their true potential. My heart sings when I am able to be of assistance to others as they journey towards becoming the best possible version of themselves.
“I’ve now had three coaching sessions with Edye and in that short time, she has helped me get out of my own way and move towards making big changes in my life - changes I’ve been thinking (or overthinking) about making for many months. Edye has a lovely way of encouraging you to move towards what you consciously or unconsciously already know is the right direction. I look forward to continuing to work with her and seeing the magic unfold.”
“Edye has brought me to work on aspects of myself that I never even realized needed work, and I am now a better friend and better person because of it. Her advice to me has truly changed my outlook on life. Edye makes it clear that beyond our regular sessions, I can call her whenever I need her. This re-assurance means a lot because it proves to me that she really cares! “
“My times with Edye have been filled with acceptance, patience, and so much love. I was in the midst of a massive personal crisis when we started meeting, and her guidance has helped me in my journey toward continual healing and growth. Most of all, she has reminded me that everything I need exists within me already—this has been the greatest blessing.”
I like to book an informational call with the client to learn about what they are hoping to accomplish and to let them learn a bit about me. If we seem to be a good fit, we can discuss next steps.
