Discovering Your Identity

How can I live a more fulfilling life?

Identity Based Living

Discovering Your Identity


If you’re like most people, you want to be recognized for the contribution you’re capable of making, whether that’s for your employer, your family or your friends. Sometimes, however, it’s challenging to find your purpose in life. You’re not sure how to “get there.” Or, the question, where am I going? looms large in connection with your career or an important personal relationship. Sometimes, life challenges are actually identity challenges. And the best place to begin to address them is inside.


None of us can be “anything” we want to be in life; but we all have more potential than we know. Clarifying your personal identity – your unique, value-creating capacities – reveals that potential, enabling you to move forward with clarity of purpose and renewed confidence in yourself and the relationships that matter most.


Make your identity a framework for living.


Transition coaching

There are many ways to navigate transitions. The most successful transitions, however, are those that are firmly grounded in your core identity, which provides the necessary foundation for ensuring that change is authentic, positive, and lasting. I begin by helping you build that foundation. Then, I guide you through your transition, whether it is related to your career, personal relationships, or the challenge of what’s next? should you be seeking alternatives to traditional retirement.

Identity Discovery Workshops for Youth

The teen years, into college, can be a particularly difficult time for defining who you are in relation to school, family and friends – even yourself. These workshops help young people get to know themselves more fully by crystallizing innate strengths, so they can apply them to the choices they make in all aspects of their lives – from picking the right friends to finding the college, college major, or career track that is best for them.

"Your words reframed so many things for me, including work, the people in my life, why I need to step out more consciously. I have been looking for this for a long, long time. Thank you."

—Mary J.

"I will perform vastly better at work because of the identity mapping experience. Now I know where I best fit in and why."

—Frank G.

"When talking about my identity, the light inside me shines through and seems to resonate with others. Initially, I felt like I was reborn. Now I am discovering what course of action I should take in light of this insight into myself."

—Bryan N.
