Got climate fatigue? You need an action plan! The most powerful Climate Action Plan is the one that works for you!
Are you anxious about the state of our planet and what it means for future generations? I want to help you harness that energy and transform it into powerful action that is aligned with your life purpose.
Are you overwhelmed by the growing list of ways to act and unsure which are the best fit for you? I want to help you get climate-confident and begin taking steps that align with who you are, how you enjoy spending time, and what you value most.
Do you struggle with wondering if your actions alone will be enough to make a difference? I want to help you discover opportunities to mobilize action within the communities you are rooted in and connected to because this is where you have the greatest potential to lead and be a catalyst for change.
You don’t need to be an expert to act...you just need to be willing to take the first step!
As an early adopter to the climate change movement, I found my way forward through regenerative activism. Purposeful action, rooted in mindfulness and connection, has been my antidote to eco-anxiety and overwhelm.
I want to help you prioritize climate action and find your way forward too. I want to help you transform negative emotions about the state of our planet into an exciting vision and a powerful plan that inspires and energizes you every step of the way!
At the heart of your Personal Climate Action Plan is a thriving planet and a thriving you!
Unleash Your Vitality!
As a midwife told me when laboring through my 60th hour of home birth, "A birthing woman has boundless reserves of energy to pull from in her time of need."
We are in the midst of a planetary rebirth and it is taking place through each and every one of us. And we are all in our time of need.
I want to help you tap into your boundless reserves of energy to do your part in birthing this planet anew. I want to be a catalyst for purposeful passionate climate action that aligns with a lifestyle that prioritizes what you value most.
How we respond to this crisis is the most vital work of our time. We were born for this and we each have what it takes to do it.
Are you ready?
What will you experience when you work with me?
You will get connected to the elements that nurture and inspire you. You will engage in activities and exercises that will energize you and help you root, re-wild, and rise organically into a fuller and more vibrant expression of yourself.
You will weave together life experiences, occupational choices, professional and vocational training, and that which gives you zest for living, to create a plan that will drive your greening journey through all domains of your life.
GREENcoaching is about tuning into the natural rhythm and flow of life that is your birthright to experience. It is about slowing down, simplifying, and celebrating the sacred in the ordinary.
It’s about making peace and pursuing a life of passion and purpose.
It’s about growth, regeneration, and loving the world of your dreams into being.
It’s about designing a life that aligns with your heart and vision.
It’s beyond sustainability. It’s about thriving!
It’s beyond ‘leave-no-trace’. It's about leaving footprints that matter and give others a worthy path to follow!
I stand for you being an agent of restoration and change. We will start with diving deep into what you love, what inspires you, and what you want to see more of in the world.
Within what you love are seeds that will help you thrive and create a world in which all beings can thrive too!
You don't need to do everything. Do what calls your heart: effective action comes from love. It is unstoppable, and it is enough. Joanna Macy

What is Regenerative Activism?
Activism tends to conjure images of beating the pavement with a sign and megaphone in hand surrounded by masses of people passionate about a cause. While this kind of activism certainly has its place in response to the climate crisis, it can put the activist on a course collision with burnout and repel others to join in when competing priorities vie for attention.
Regenerative Activism, a term born out of the Extinction Rebellion Movement, calls upon and empowers the activist to be mindful and to initiate systemic change by starting at home first...within one's own body, mind and heart. From there, activism expands in concentric circles to impact one's family, community and ultimately, the world at large.
Regenerative Activism is rooted in deep caring and is restorative and life giving in nature.
