In my excitement about the adventure of living abroad, I didn’t anticipate the struggles I would have. Finding work to advance in my career, building genuine friendships, feeling at home in a foreign landscape and culture, staying connected with family and friends back home, and knowing how my relocation fit into my bigger personal and professional goals, all proved to be more challenging than I ever imagined.
Since then we’ve become a family of four, relocated back home to California, and then packed up our lives again to live in two more new countries, with our kids and careers at a whole mix of stages. I’ve learned a ton along the journey, but not without a lot of learning “the hard way” before I pieced together the keys of what it takes to thrive in a new place.
I created Thriving Relocation to give people what I wish I’d had in each of my relocations—resources, support, and a road map to create a thriving life without all the wrong turns and missed opportunities that are so common for relocating partners. I want to save you from wasted months and years of stress and struggle, so that you can get on with enjoying your life, your family, and making your unique contribution to the world.
Whether you’re making a decision, planning your big move, struggling to find happiness in your new place, or returning home, I’ll guide you in a clear, step-by-step process to handle your transitions with ease, turn your challenges into opportunities, and make your relocation the experience of a lifetime.
I help my clients to find their unique path to thriving according to their own values and goals. In coaching, I provide a safe place to confide the ups and downs of your journey, as well as find clarity on your goals and dreams, define your path forward, handle obstacles, and take action to create the life you dream of.
I also provide my clients with immensely valuable and easy-to-access resources that I’ve developed specifically for accompanying partners in relocations, to help you make great relocation decisions, prepare for relocations with greater ease, fast-track your adjustment, and thrive in your new place.
When you’re moving, you don’t have time to pore through books and research or dig for quality information on the internet. I’ve done all the work for you- I’ve compiled the most relevant tips and tools for your situation, combined with my own perspective and recommendations, and I’m handing it to you on a platter- so you can focus on creating and enjoying a thriving life with your family.
