Because of your blog, I know that it is possible for me to have the love that I want one day and that I don’t have to be alone.  — Indepthwoman  on space2live

This is me. This is me from the day I was born. For so long I felt misunderstood and rejected, even by the people closest to me, because they could never understand my need for solitude, and I had no idea how to explain it to them. Even now that I know more about Introversion and have a more informed understanding of my hard-wired need for solitude, it’s still very difficult sometimes to help my loved ones understand this profound craving for time and space all to myself. This is one of the best…

I met Brenda and took the MBTI… I had a fairly good understanding of these types before the meeting but was impressed by the depth of knowledge that Brenda shared with me. She clearly has a passion for this work and a gift in imparting the information. There have been doors opened for me because of our talks… — Alan Hintermeister

I have been dating an introverted man who I am very in love with for almost 2 years.  Reading your posts have helped me to be more supportive and understanding to him especially during the times when he needs space.  I just wanted to thank you for your weekly posts and let you know how helpful they are for someone who is in a relationship with an introvert.

Thank you for all the words. You’ve created the magic drug I’ve been looking for all my life. Your blog has transformed my life, and I feel like I am on the brink of a most satisfying fulfilling journey…You’ve made me see everything in a new light.

Brenda has truly opened up a space for introverted types on the ‘net, and her self-revelations are always inspiring. Her voice is one I always look forward to. She is one of the writers that actually played a part in my return to writing.  — S.E. of Sunflower Solace Farms

That courage and dedication you so generously share with the world, has inspired me to push myself a little harder, persevere at each task a little longer, dig a little bit deeper to where the answers just “feel” right to both my humanity AND my spirit. Your insights have reinforced my direction and given me additional tools that help me clear my path. I’m wired into my creativity as never before and the new music is pouring out of me faster than I can record and produce it; this is the Un…

Your words are my lifeline.  I sit down to your posts and as I read I can feel my acceptance of myself and my needs grow.  Your words validate my feelings about my life, motherhood, relationships and it is something I hold onto.  And during the times when I feel like I am not able to be a mother or a wife or a sister or a friend or whatever someone needs me to be, I go back to your words and find some peace…I send your posts to my husband when I need him to understand that I love him but I need …

I think I want to print out your articles and hand them out as a sort of relationship waiver form. “You want to be my friend?….You are interesting in going out? Here read this first. Sign here to acknowledge that you have read and understand the enclosed material. Thank you.” Seriously. I think it would work. — Guerin Moorman

You’re so honest in your writing. It’s bold. It’s frank. It’s wonderful. I could definitely see the work you are doing here as a useful book. It could save/make a lot of relationships! — Jimmi Langemo

Individual Coaching 2017-09-14T08:22:11+00:00

Are you going through a transition or major change in your life that feels overwhelming?

When was the last time you felt truly alive? Has it been too long?

Are you a sensitive person and/or an introvert and would like to know more about your gifts? 

Do you want more energy to be able to keep up with your job, kids, partner? 

Do you feel misunderstood and undervalued within your family, at school, or at work? 

Do you need help sorting through your emotions so you can focus on moving forward? 

We all go through transitions and challenges in life.

Often we need a catalyst or intimate friend to spur us on to self-knowledge and growth.

We need to give ourselves a place to be vulnerable and real. It must be a safe, encouraging space, where our authenticity is valued.

A neutral, nurturing coach is ideal for working through fears and gaining confidence. I can offer you that.

I can help you develop as an individual.

I particularly enjoy helping clients build respectful loving relationships.

I focus on meeting you where you are now in your life and moving forward.

Six years of writing and guiding on space2live, the research and writing of my book The Quiet Rise of Introverts: 8 Practices for Living and Loving in a Noisy World, training as a family mediator and certification as a Myers-Briggs  practitioner, have all brought me to this perfect point where I can help you:

Gain self-awareness
