"Expectations Reset"

 a journey towards simplifying and demystifying to gain clarity  

WHAT ARE EXPECTATIONS:  Our expectations are shaped by a myriad of influences: the information we consume through our senses, the people around us - family, friends, colleagues, and authority figures, as well as the culture and society we belong to. It's a complex, intertwined network that makes our minds noisy places.

OUR BRAINS' ROLE IN THEIR FORMATION:  Modern neurology reveals that our brain is bombarded with vast amounts of data every second, and it seeks to protect us by creating easy-paths based on patterns and associations gathered through past experiences. Over time, these patterns become our subconscious biases, belief systems, and the rules that govern our lives. Our expectations stem from these deep-seated patterns, often leading to frustration when reality doesn't align with them.

WHERE MY COACHING PHILOSOHY COMES IN: My mission is to guide you on a journey of resetting your expectations by going back to the core of who you are and understanding the reasons behind your thoughts, actions and behaviors. Together, we bring these patterns back into your conscious thinking, allowing you to re-learn and rewire your brain for choosing healthier outcomes.

As you simplify, demystify and clarify who you have become, you shed the burden of unrealistic expectations to move forward with renewed strength and resilience.


My passion for this work stems from a deep desire to help you find clarity and fulfillment in your life. As your coach, I am committed to walking beside you on this transformative path, empowering you to embrace conscious awareness and reset your expectations for a more empowered, content, and joyful existence.


Let's embark on this journey of self-discovery and growth together.
