I had felt disconnected, caught up in the past and too much in my head off-and-on for most of my adult life, but this time was different. This time, it was obvious that I was at a crossroads (or a giant roundabout); creatively, I was blocked…career-wise, I was uninspired…personally, I was overwhelmed…and spiritually, I was searching. At this great big pause in my life, I needed way more than a “you’ll be fine” or a “you always land on your feet” pep talk from my husband and friends. Simply put, I needed guidance, focus, new tools and a re-education around “how to be”. A dear friend suggested I seek out a life coach to support and motivate me through this grey space.
So I went online and I found Fawn Miller, or rather we found each other. Using a professional recommendation site, I filled out some details around my search for a life coach in the LA area. Within 12 hours, I received 6 responses. I only replied to Fawn’s because I liked her education, honesty, approach, plus she offered a free strategy session to gauge fit (for both of us).
From our first session, I knew she had remarkable range: compassion, humility, kindness, integrity, brilliance—an awesome book collection—and the ability to offer up challenges that feel like genuine warm embraces rather than critical jabs from a playbook.
The work we’ve done together has been confronting and freeing. Through a series of weekly conversations, suggested readings, breakthrough exercises and thought-provoking assignments, Fawn has opened new pathways for me: how to reframe conversations, how to be more present, how to embrace new perspectives, how to tap into ME and not the version of ME that I thought society expected.
Our work together continues, and my awakening has just begun. I trust that Fawn will remain a gentle, but influential force in my life.
