Above All Be Truthful and Kind – Coaching from the Heart with Deborah Tutnauer

This post is a copy of a “letter” I wrote to one of my new friends I’ve met through social media. It began through a discussion of interests, values and focus. I am sharing it here with you because it sums up who I am and how I came to be the “Architect of Magical Soul Structure” (as one of my clients calls me), that I am today.

As you saw {my friend was reading my blog} – I know my craft and I am indeed quite distinct from the sea and masses of “coaches”. I am on a mission right now to shine brightly through that fog so that those I am destined to impact, can find me. The brightness comes from speaking only truth – operating only from kindness and not being afraid to own my power and the depth of what I can bring to the table for others.

I used to collect degrees of higher learning..I taught special education in the 1980s – children with moderate to severe disabilities. When I went back for a second Master’s in Social Work it was to work with families of children with special needs. Ultimately I became more of a generalist with the children and families and had a clinical social work practice for many years. – 50 minute psychotherapy hours with multi-challenging situations and intense mental issues too.

I got married at 40 – did a lot of traveling, exploring, meditating, and other esoteric endeavors up until then. I lived overseas, traveled the US with my tent and stuffed doberman pincher dog riding in the front seat {protecting me from harm on the highways}. I climb mountains still and love to ski and be in nature.

When my daughter was born in 2002, I realized fairly quickly that my therapist energy and my parenting energy were the same energy and there was not room for me to do both well. At 43 years old, I was not going to miss a moment of life with this child. I had no pull to my career, regrets at stepping back for a bit or feeling of giving anything up to focus on being a mom  – it was exactly right to do so at that moment in time.

I am blessed to have a husband who supports all my choices – from that one to all the entrepreneurial endeavors that ensued after our daughter got a bit older. He supports me as a go-getter, risk-taker. His steadfastness and corporate job have given me quite a foundation for exploration..and the ability to fail a few times without worrying about food or shelter. For this I am immensely grateful.

For a number of years I marketed things.. products..and got good at it online and off. Yet it was always the people – the coaching – the teaching – that inspired me..and thus it was natural to circle back around to my counseling and combine those deep skills with an understanding of  entrepreneurship, marketing, home business and the challenges of all of those.

I bring a  unique combination in the success coaching world. I ride the line often between business coaching, therapy and spiritual/energetic enlightenment in the work I do with people. When a client engages with me they feel inherently changed. Not just  from doing different activities or even developing a different mind-set – but shifted, opened on a very deep level. They become free to be who they really are, unencumbered with the baggage and the stories that no longer serve them.

That, in an essence is the message I am compelled and committed to share with you.
I’ve expanded on it a bit in this video. I’d love it if you would watch, subscribe and comment!
