Are you going through some changes in your body & your health - like weight gain, menopause-related symptoms, diminished energy?

Do you have new challenges with family or relationships?


Are you questioning your life purpose and how you want to live your "second act" of life?

We can let changes drag us around, or we can get more involved with creating our BEST new chapter, through mindset, envisioning, planning and taking small, meaningful, empowered steps to create the life you want.

How could your world look and feel with a more empowered YOU?

My Story
Although I have felt like a relatively empowered person for most of my life, I was really surprised by the cascade of difficult changes that have come in midlife (menopause, coming out, divorce, empty nesting).  These changes have been an opportunity to approach my choices differently, and step into a new chapter of authenticity, vibrancy and aliveness.  At 53 years old, I honestly feel better than any other decade of my life, and I want to help other women feel their absolute best, too!

It started five years ago, with my decision to quit drinking alcohol.  I was a "gray-area drinker," which means that by most people's standards I wasn't drinking "a lot," but it was enough to numb feelings of dissatisfaction, fear and apathy about some things in my life.  
For me, alcohol had become a comfortable habit that was a little too comfortable.  It was a way to relax, to cope with stress, and to avoid some things I'd rather not deal with.  But alcohol made me feel not only physically bad, but psychologically bad, creating more stress in my life.

Ultimately, by quitting drinking, I eventually came to terms with the fact that I needed to make some big changes in my life - and for me that included getting divorced and coming out as gay.

Around that time, I also navigated perimenopause, became an empty-nester, got an ADHD diagnosis, and had my two business partners leave management/ownership of our business.

I navigated a LOT of change, in a short amount of time.

What I learned was that:
1. I needed structure and support, in order to create the most authentic, empowered version of myself ever, and
2. I needed to optimize my energy to do it.  This meant better sleep, better nutrition and a different approach to movement.

Now, I am living a life that feels more free, more authentic, more empowered and more ALIVE!  I have taken charge of my life and I feel better than I have in ANY other decade of life. I'm excited to help other women navigate their own changes to create a more intentional, empowered next chapter. 
My many years of body-positive yoga therapy work has laid a foundation for compassionate, caring coaching, that will help you get the results you want in your life.  Those results won't look like anyone else's because YOU'RE the one creating what they are!

Coaching Dimensions
I coach all kinds of people, but I mostly work in three tracks.

Health/Life Coaching

I help women navigate change.  This change can be related to relationships, career, spirituality, identity, or parenting.

I help you define your dreams, get to your heart-felt motivations, and use those motivations to help you create (and carry out) a plan to make them a reality.

All of this work requires a balancing and optimization of energy. This is often enhanced by key changes in lifestyle (eating, sleeping, moving) that will help you feel your best, so you can implement the bigger changes in life. 

Sober - Curious Coaching

I have helped dozens of people become more clear, honest and compassionate about their relationship with alcohol.
Many of my clients have a strong sense that alcohol is holding them back from living their best lives

My program allows for the ambivalence that often accompanies quitting drinking, not forcing any decisions, but allowing for honest, curious space to explore how drinking makes you feel and how you want to live. 

Some clients have decided to quit booze for good
and have stay-quit! 

Late - Blooming Lesbians

While counselors help people deal with their mental / emotional issues and past traumas, a coach helps you get clear on the changes you want, why you want them, then helps with planning & implementation.

What that means for late-blooming lesbians can be: navigating dating, sexual identity in the workplace, connecting with community and creating a life that reflects this next, more authentic version of you.

It could also include a different approach to nutrition and movement so that you feel your best as you navigate life in your new identity.

"The biggest win? Personal empowerment. This program equipped me with the knowledge and confidence to navigate my health journey. I am owning my wins, and learning to take credit for all that I’ve done to navigate a challenging set of circumstances.  I feel more in control and capable of making good choices.
E.B. has been crucial to my success. She is so smart, kind , patient & loving. She taught me so much. Great program!"

Alice G.

"I've really loved the sober-curious work I've been doing with E.B.  It has helped give me perspective, and offered me time and space to consider what my own thoughts and feelings are about drinking are.  I appreciate knowing that I won't be pressured to quit forever, but that I can try out and experience what's right for me.
I've also been able to improve my health habits with improved nutrition and more exercise, so I feel better than ever!"

Marta B.

"The most important aspect for me has been accountability. Having a coach kept me motivated and on track, especially when facing challenges.
E.B. even provided emotional support, helping me overcome negative perceptions around meal prep. Now, it's a form of self-care, an investment in my well-being."
When is it a good time to get coaching?
Investing in a coach takes COURAGE and the belief that you deserve to create the life you really want.
Why?  Because you have to TRUST in yourself and put in the work to make that change.
I firmly believe that people are not broken, and don't need to be fixed.  AND if we want things to be different, we need to discover and enact the small, meaningful steps that are going to get us to that new desired state.
I am simply here to guide you, support you and collaborate with you and hold you accountable, so that the change you want is inevitable. I hold a kind, non-judgmental space from which we'll build your foundation... BUT you need to be willing to see yourself ascend to these new heights, and more empowered versions of yourself.
Coaching is a great fit for you if you need help with any of these:
  • Optimizing your energy and feeling better in your body,
  • Overcoming stress, anxiety, and feelings of overwhelm
  • Creating a mindset shift to fuel big changes in to be empowered in midlife

  •  You would benefit from more support in a judgement-free space.
