- Cece Connors, Client
In 2004, I discovered life coaching and, immediately appreciating the benefits of focused listening and thoughtful questioning aimed at bringing one's inner wisdom to the forefront, I embarked on the path toward becoming a professional coach. The space I have shared over the years with clients as they experience the freedom and richness that comes from increasingly trusting themselves and their journeys, whether working on bringing their visions to life or traveling the path of grief, is sacred and rewarding.
I am a certified life coach through the International Coach Federation and a certified grief and end-of-life coach through Coaching at End of Life, LLC. I am also a facilitator of Systemic Family Constellation work, having completed training at the Seattle Constellations Institute in 2010 and having, in 2014, participated in an intensive year-long training in using constellations to address the impact of trauma.
I enjoy working with people who value the ongoing development of self-awareness, self-compassion and the intention to live from a place of authenticity and loving connection to others. Coaching and constellation work both help to nurture the seeds of those things that yearn for expression while addressing the limitations of unhelpful beliefs, perceptions and habits, unexpressed grief, or systemic trauma.
My work is informed by an understanding of the stages and neuroscience of change, the impact of systemic and attachment trauma, and the value of mindfulness. I see every client as whole, worthy and wise and so commit to recognizing you as the expert in your own life, to meeting you where you are, to honoring your time frame, and to holding the space for you to continue nurturing a strong and healthy core Self that allows you to fully inhabit your life and express your gifts.
