Karen’s passion is to help men and women navigate the emotional difficulties of relationships, breakups and divorce. Your work together will open up the possibility that your current relationship challenges can lead to a rewarding voyage of self-discovery and an immensely more pleasing life experience.

During her three and a half year tumultuous divorce, Karen’s life began to improve exponentially. With much hard work, she embraced her new life, created healthy friendships, found her true voice, and learned to set suitable boundaries and let go of what she could not control. Learning to live a healthy enlivened life is something that we can share with our children creating thriving relationships with them while helping them grow emotionally strong and healthy. Karen is the mother of two emerging adults, a graduate of the world’s leading coaching institute, Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC) and a Certified Member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF).

On this episode, Kara and I talk about the 2021 Year In Review exercise that we did that was powerful for both of us.

Ep. 35 - What Do You Do When It All Falls Apart with Emily McDowell
Note: Intro ends and our conversation with Emily begins at 11:40. Hey friends, and welcome back to another episode! We’re so excited that you’re here and even more excited for you to dive into this amazing conversation with Emily McDowell. She is raw, insightful, hilarious, and there is so much wisdom in this episode - you’re going to walk away feeling so inspired. If you don't know, Emily McDowell is the founder and creator of Em & Friends. After a cancer diagnosis, she learned that sometimes people drift away simply because they don’t know what to say. She also learned that there wasn’t a huge supply of greeting cards available that spoke authentically to complex or nontraditional life experiences. So in 2012 she started writing and illustrating her own cards, reflecting her real, complicated life—like Valentines for people who are kinda ambiguously dating, Mother’s Day cards for people who aren’t technically your mom, and cards for seriously ill people who might find “get well” messages awkward at best. Emily is a writer, illustrator, speaker, teacher, and entrepreneur who lives in Portland, OR, and is such a wise voice to a generation who is recovering from hustle culture. After building a successful and thriving brand, Emily boldly wrestled with what it looks like to truly choose yourself and grant yourself the permission to change your mind. On this episode, we talk about: Walking away even when things don't make sense Finding the courage to stand alone Trusting your own journey outside of the opinions of others Being okay with not being liked Rediscovering the life on the other side of letting go We can’t wait to hear what you think of this episode, so make sure to say hello on Instagram!
