The Path To Home Starts From Within

Online coaching to help
Adult Third Culture Kids find identity, home, and belonging

If you've grown up between multiple cultures and as an adult feel confused about who you are, what you want, or where you belong, you're not alone

Having identity issues is one of the most common challenges experienced by Third Culture Kids (TCKs) — people who grew up in a culture(s) that's different from their parents or their nationality.

Maybe you've tried to define yourself by all the places you've lived, the things you've experienced, and the people you know. But no matter how much you know about the different parts and pieces of yourself and your life, you're still left with the feeling that you don't know who you are or where you fit in.

How identity issues show up in your life

As a TCK, you may try to do the best you can by pursuing the normal things in life: go to school, move, get jobs, have relationships, maybe have a family. But you never feel satisfied. Life just doesn't feel right, but you're not sure what to do. You may have underlying feelings of anxiousness, doubt, or insecurity as you try to move forward with your life.

You can find clarity about who you are

Identity issues happen when some of the different parts of yourself, formed as a result of your unique experiences as a TCK, are obscuring and are in conflict with the core of who you are. 

Through coaching, I can help you uncover these different parts and work through this internal conflict, so you can find clarity about who you really are.

Once you know who you are, you can begin to create a life where you feel that you belong

When you've thoroughly cleared the conflict within yourself and understand who you are, it will lead to three key changes:

You'll find
self-acceptance and peace

You'll no longer feel like you're not enough — culturally, nationally, or otherwise. You'll understand deeply that you don't have to be one type of person or another or fit into some mold. You'll be at peace with exactly who you are.

You'll gain
direction and certainty

You'll let go of what you think others expect from you or want you to be, and be able to focus on what you want. You'll no longer be hampered by worries of what ifs. Instead, you'll be able to make decisions about your life and take action with certainty.

You'll finally find
home and belonging

You'll let go of attachments that aren't helpful to you. You'll be able to create a life on your own terms with people, places, and things that are supportive and nurturing of who you are, give you connection, and bring you joy.

As a TCK myself, I understand the unique challenges that TCKs experience while growing up and how difficult it can be to resolve resulting identity issues.  

I use a gentle, collaborative approach and mind-body techniques backed by research to help TCKs overcome these challenges.
