Nancy G. Shapiro, Life Transition Coach / Author of Tilting Toward Chaos

About Nancy

Office Hours: By appointment

To be coached during the inevitable shifts and transitions of our personal and professional lives is a threshold decision, a  threshold being what poet Gregory Orr calls “a place where we are most able to alter our understanding of the world and of our own lives in it.”

In the beginning, you bring a desire for change in some aspect of your life. As your advocate, I help you claim your stories— the thoughts, tales, beliefs, and habits you’ve accumulated over a lifetime—and help you nurture the innate wisdom that lies within you. It is a lively, wholehearted conversation, an active engagement with your heart, intellect, body sense, and intuition that allows you to explore and unleash:

      • Insightful knowing that pinpoints what works in your life and what does not;
      • The freedom of focused, creative actions;
      • Tools and practices that bring about the spirited calm of clarity, compassion, and choice: mindful presence, communication skills and brain-based knowledge, to name a few;
      • The joy and strength within the common threads of your experience.

In Their Own Words:

Newly hired at a vastly larger organization than I’d ever experienced, I began my new job—thanks to Nancy—with strength, confidence, and consciousness. -Susanna Williams, education innovator

I’m not sure where I’d be in life right now without Nancy’s nurturing guidance. Bottom line is that in less than 6 months I turned my life around. -Daniel Postaer, photographer

Nancy helped me find aspects of myself I had lost and to build on gifts that I now use every day. I achieved much more than I ever could have alone. -Dennis Meyer, CEO non-profit

This has been the most profound, effective inner work I have ever done. Nancy’s keen sense of humor and her crystal clear feedback is invaluable. – Shelly Ravera, holistic health care provider
