What a Difference a Year Makes!

What a Difference a Year Makes!

 Make no mistake~ Sometimes working with a Life Coach can be a deeply transformational process!  People who come to me are ready to make a change, even though they might not know exactly what that change is.  It is so INspiring to me to see these dramatic shifts, and I am grateful for the opportunity to hold space as people explore their innermost thoughts and deepest desires.

Let me pause to say, that I am profoundly humbled by this work that I do. 

A recent client gave me permission to share her story, in hopes that it might inspire at least one other person.  She came to me 1 year ago- and she tells how our work progressed.  After you read her short story, if you are feeling the pull to find out how Life Coaching can help you- read below how to get in touch with me.

"MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE Working with Life Coach, Catherine Russo Epstein In the summer of 2015, I experienced the age-old question, “what is my life’s purpose?” Both my parents had recently deceased, and I wasn’t happy in my long-time career as a property manager. I had known for several years prior that a change was needed. Like most people, it’s hard to give up a decent income. I felt very lost and confused; something inside of me was screaming for a more balanced and fulfilling life. My first life coaching experience was in late June, 2015. I immediately gravitated to Cathie’s warmth, friendliness, compassion and knowledge. She listened intently to my “story” for the next several meetings, as I took a “real time” look at my personal and professional goals. Shortly thereafter, I began to shift my perspective, and was gaining new clarity. Within a few months, I was on my way to a new career path that Cathie “threw out there” for me to consider. I did my research, and I said “yes” to the universe! Cathie encouraged me set a target date (June, 2016); create a plan working backwards from that target date, and finally proceed with the execution of a monthly “to do” list (homework!) to achieve my targeted goal. At the end, I was ready to take the leap. I recently left my job; saved tuition for a certification course in bereavement counseling, and put into effect a financial plan to help with interim monthly expenses. I am so grateful to Cathie for her coaching, and I’m so excited to begin my new career ministering to others on a more spiritual level."


So, I ask you this:  Where would you like to be one year from now?  If you want to explore the answer to that question; I am here to help.  Currently, there are 2 openings in my life coaching schedule.  If you think you might be a good fit, then please reach out to me: and put "life coaching" in the subject line.

And, even if we don't work together, I wish you the strength to connect with your own inner yearnings- and the support you need to change your life!

Can't wait to hear from you and to help you Transform your Life!

With all heart love! ~cathie

Conscious Eating- The Divine Dining Method
Conscious Eating- Mindful Ways to Navigate the Holiday Season

November 07, 2018

“Be one with the food”…that is what I always tell my children, when they are shoveling their dinner.  Conscious eating is about  being completely aware of the act of eating. It is not the shoveling or mindless stuffing of one’s face.  When we are fully engaged in the process of eating- we can deeply experience the tastes, sensations, and aromas.  When you bring a Conscious Eating habit to your life; you’ll be kinder to your digestive system and you won’t overeat.  You’ll be in tune with your body and stop when full.  If you aren’t ready to make the whole transformation of your eating habits, then try it with a snack or  a light meal.  Food can become a spiritual experience, when it is approached from a mindful perspective.

I had plans.... glorious plans...

Then I experienced the cosmic 2x4. That's my term for a course correction in life.

For me, it was a freaky fall, landing on my elbow, bruising a few ribs has set my plans on hold for now.

To be truthful, I've had some  'why me?' moments where I question the higher purpose.  I've questioned what I could have done differently. Yet, the answer I get is "shit happens" and sometimes we don't know the higher purpose.
