I'm a writer, coach, and speaker but really, who am I to tell you anything? Why would you buy my books or listen to me speak or set me loose on a roomful of decent folks? Who am I to teach you anything?
I’m certainly no scientist, therapist, counselor, mega-coach, movie star, expert or authority on anything other than myself. I’ve had a rollicking fun adventurous life, raised three boys as a mostly-single mom, practiced law for 15 years (I am now in recovery), taught high school English, became an EMT, a cowgirl (not a good one, but a cheerful one), a ranch hand, back up wilderness guide (the one who does all the scut work), and a Buddhist chaplain. I’ve worked in classrooms, courtrooms, emergency rooms; with ski patrollers, cowboys, doctors, lawyers, teachers, and kids. Born and raised in Philly, I’ve lived in a 300 square foot cabin off the grid on 5000 acres in The Middle of Nowhere, Colorado. From the Jersey shore to the Purple Mountain Majesties, I’ve skied, rafted, climbed, biked, run and hiked through life. It’s a pretty fun resume but I’m no Dr. Phil. Except for my JD degree which is technically a doctorate, making me - indeed - Dr. Phyl. Having collected so many experiences, I am a helluva storyteller.
How else to put this? I was born to inspire other people to their best and highest selves. Nothing is more fun for me - NOTHING - than being a positive, collaborative, sensitive, intellient and fun agent of REAL CHANGE. Try one of my books on for size, or contact me about coaching or speaking. We can just talk for awhile and then see what you think. The truth is that everything you need to know is right inside you. I can just help clear the air.
