I coach women who think emotional baggage is screwing with their current romantic relationship. If that’s you, the 10-week “Make Baggage Your Bitch” program is exactly what you need. You’ll learn how to deal with emotions like fear and anxiety to create the relationship you want.
I’ll teach you the process of figuring out where you are stuck so you can work through whatever comes your way. If I can do it – you can do it!
Please check out my videos (there’s a few about other topics such as Covid and racism).
At the bottom on the page, please check out my blogs about relationships and emotional baggage.
I can help you. Click a button at the top of this page to book a session. If you’re ready to face your life, book a session. If you’re ready to stop suffering, book a session.
Hope to see you soon!
I do sessions via Zoom.
Life coaching changed my life and I love sharing what I’ve learned.
Dawn has been coaching me over the last several months and she is amazing! She is so easy to talk to and trust. She helps me have a greater awareness of my thoughts and how they affect my experiences. The perspective that she offers in our coaching sessions is invaluable. I have greater clarity and direction as I make decisions for myself and for my life. The changes I’ve been able to make since learning the concepts Dawn teaches have completely upleveled my life. I highly recommend coaching with Dawn to anyone who’s ready to do the work to experience their life in a meaningful and full way!Misty T., Arizona
I was in a rented Suburban, riding across Indiana last week, when I realized I’ve been seeing part of my past with seriously warped vision. For years, I’ve been thinking “I did it wrong,” when it came to my 15 years as a stay-at-home mom. I thought I would’ve felt happier if I’d have thoughtContinue reading “You probably see the past with a warped rearview mirror.”
I just had a revelation. I thought I’d worked through some feelings of defensiveness. But, no. Here’s what happened. About a year ago, someone said I was “bossy.” At the time, I realized we get defensive cause our brains think we’re under attack. So we defend by coming up with all the ways the personContinue reading “Why you get defensive.”
You need to change your mind, cause what’s in there now could scare Stephen King. When I noticed how much my mind has changed over the past few years, I thought about how happy I was about that. Then I realized the idea of people “changing their minds” often gets a bad rap. People whoContinue reading “Why you need to change your mind.”
Hey. Do you feel unconditional love for anyone? You know, those people you love, no matter what they do? My guess? You said “yes.” Maybe you thought about your kids or your dog that eats shoes for dinner. They act like assholes, yet your love for them is without question. Let’s take our kids. WeContinue reading “Unconditional love: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly”
Can you think of a time when somebody didn’t do what you thought they should do? You know, they did something that pissed you off. My guess is you said “yes,” or “every day of my life.” If that’s what you said, stick with me, because we’re gonna talk about two things. 1) What otherContinue reading “Have a list about how you should be?”
When I first heard a life coach named Kara Lowentheil say something like“if you were raised in American society, you’re racist,” I thought “What? That’s crazy.” And then, my brain came up with all the ways she was wrong. My brain found all kinds of evidence to prove I wasn’t. My brain said things likeContinue reading “I have racist thoughts.”
Do you know a person who would argue about whether the sky is blue? They’d say “Well, it’s really azure.” We all know a person who always has to be right. And a lot of the time, it’s us. Your brain wants to be right. It really, really, really likes it. And for good reason,Continue reading “Why you may want to be wrong.”
Imagine walking into the family room and seeing dirty dishes on the coffee table and no human in sight. If you have kids, I’m guessing this is easy to imagine. Not long ago, I’d see wayward dishes and think “What the hell?!” Instead of eating in front of the TV, then putting their dishes inContinue reading “Why you might want to strangle your partner and kids.”
Six years ago, I was in Spain with my former husband. We walked down to a beach to ask for directions. The beach was topless, and as we walked away, my ex said “Sorry, for turning back to stare, I’m just not used to seeing that.” I remember feeling terrible while we rode a busContinue reading “How I took emotional baggage to the topless beach.”
A story I’ve told many times out loud and in my mind is about how I was majorly screwed over by an ex. The story was about how he left me the day I left my job. Then, I lost my house and had to sell most of the stuff in it. It seemed thatContinue reading “How to start forgiving someone.”
Maybe you’ve replayed a conversation you had with friends and thought something like “I can’t believe Arianna was complaining about her boyfriend spending too much money when Vicky’s husband just got diagnosed with leukemia. Arianna needs to keep that shit to herself when we’re hanging out with Vicky.” My guess is you have definitely comparedContinue reading “Why it’s okay to complain, and why you think you shouldn’t.”
You may have heard the term “emotional baggage.” If you had to describe it, you might say it’s the fear, anxiety, and insecurity you carry around because of something that happened in the past. Perhaps it’s from a former relationship or past event. And many of us realize this emotional baggage keeps us from havingContinue reading “Emotional Baggage: How to start getting rid of it.”
Many of us are feeling panic, fear, and anxiety. And many of us are not okay with that. Negative feelings mean something has gone wrong. We suffer. And suffering is a problem. And in our attempt to get away from negative emotions, we actually create more suffering for ourselves. Here’s three ways: 1) We resistContinue reading “How to deal with panic and anxiety in 4 steps.”
In my blog, “How your past screws your future,” I wrote about how our past often has a negative impact on our future. I wrote about why we often churn stories from our past to predict our future – and not in a way that helps us. So today, take these facts from someone’s pastContinue reading “How to prevent your past from screwing your future.”
Most of the time, we say we feel an emotion because of a circumstance. Like,I’m scared because I got laid off because of the coronavirus.I’m disappointed because my vacation got canceled.I feel anxious because I don’t know how long this coronavirus stuff will last. But if you watch my videos or read my blogs, youContinue reading “COVID-19: Why it’s good to feel bad.”
Coronavirus: How to stop “should-ing” yourself and others. One of the most common things we do is use the word “should.” I use it all day long. Because I think my way is best. I think I know how other people should act. I think I know how I should act. And you do theContinue reading “COVID-19: How to stop should-ing yourself and others.”
In my last story, I said the reason you’re feeling worried is NOT because of the coronavirus or what’s happening because of it. The coronavirus is neutral. What’s not neutral? Our thoughts about it. Our thoughts create so much worry. And how do we know that it’s not the Coronavirus itself causing worry? Here’s how:Continue reading “COVID-19: The steps to stop worrying.”
Feelings are caused by what we think. Worried is a feeling caused by your thoughts. (It’s not the coronavirus causing your worry. It’s your thoughts about it.) Lately, you may be having thoughts like: I might get sick I might be unknowingly carrying the virus and infect somebody who is weak and they will die.Continue reading “COVID-19: How to stop feeling worried.”
A woman in her 40s named Kara was married to a man who ended up cheating on her. She said the first five years of their marriage were fantastic. Then, she said he pulled away from her emotionally. He didn’t talk to her the way he did in the beginning. He didn’t always come homeContinue reading “How your past screws your future.”
A woman named Julia was at work in her office last Friday. That afternoon, a delivery person dropped off a beautiful bouquet of red roses at the reception desk. And, they were for her. The card read “Thank’s so much for last night, Jeff.” She was gobsmacked because roses were the last thing she’d expected.Continue reading “How to control the relationship with your partner (or anyone else).”
