"Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate"
How could you possibly initiate and sustain meaningful change if you don't fully grasp why
you do what you do?
Time and again I use a metaphor with my clients that our life, specifically our self-
awareness, is like an iceberg with multiple levels operating at the same time. (Thank you,
Dr. Freud.) We typically live at the tip of the iceberg, where only 5 percent of our conscious
mind runs the show. In other words, we are completely in the dark about the other 95
percent of who we are, because it’s our unconscious, the submerged part of the iceberg,
that is actually in charge of everything we do.
My passion is to help everyone gain access to and mastery over the remaining 95 percent
so they can achieve true agency over their lives… get closer to your core.
