2020 was a tough year.  We were all in the same storm and having different individual experiences and some very complex group experiences. One thing for certain is that we are all changed in some way and many of us have questioned who we truly are in moments of crisis, turmoil and if we are we living with intention, resilience, and purpose.  Is there something else we are being called to do? Are we living with a wide enough lens that we can see, respond to and productively participate in a world where everyone belongs? All big questions and there are no algorithm or quick tests to solve for it.  It takes introspective work and that is where Intentional Living work (or maybe tweaking) comes in. 

Life Reinvention Coaching is a customized one-on-one approach to helping you navigate the journey of purpose that begins with a discovery call with me, and we talk about talk about your intentions and what your ideal outcome would be from a coaching engagement.  That’s it.  Together we will decide next steps and if I will have the honor of working with you.  Most coaching engagements are 6 months, meeting for two 1-hour sessions monthly working towards your goal. 

“Pay attention to what makes you feel energized, connected, and stimulated. Follow your intuition, do what you love, and you will do more than succeed. You will soar.”


Karen Senteio brought energy, enthusiasm and practicality to United Way Women’s Leadership Council’s inaugural Cocktails & Conversations: Setting New Year’s Goals & Resolutions. She charged our audience with abandoning the “RESolutions” broken year after year because they were built on a foundation of scarcity, i.e. “I am not skinny enough, or rich enough or smart enough, etc.” and setting “REVolutions,” which are radical and pervasive changes backed with heart. She conducted her presentation with humor and personality, which was a big hit with our members. And, the small group exercises she engaged the group in were well thought out and extremely engaging. Our members left with clearly defined goals and the tools needed to successfully achieve their New Year’s REVolutions. We will definitely ask her back to speak on other topics.

One-on-One Coaching

Living Brave…

The one-on-one coaching programs are based on Dr. Brené Brown’s Daring Way methodology and components of her three book trifecta:

  • The Gifts of Imperfection – Be You
  • Daring Greatly – Be All In
  • Rising Strong – Fall, Get Back Up, Try Again

We all want to live lives connected to what matters most to us. To live authentically takes courage. To live in ways that allow you to show up and be seen as ‘you’ may go against the norms you have accepted as ‘shoulds’, ‘musts’ or ‘expecteds’. It takes clarity, courage, and commitment and wholehearted actions to be you…in all circumstances.

What does it mean to live wholeheartedly? It means…

  • Letting go of who you think you’re supposed to be and embrace who you are in all aspects of your life –– unraveling the old story and creating a new path
  • Cultivating what you need and making meaningful and conscious choices that truly reflect your values
  • Cultivating the resiliency you need to operate from a place of authenticity and courage
  • Learning how to own your story and caring for yourself through the challenging process of making space for the authentic you!

The coaching programs are a personal immersion into courageous and wholehearted practices that can dramatically improve your life, course correct or emerge! Living brave is living fulfilled! Be ready and start now.

Group Coaching and Workshops

Group Coaching…


The Rising Strong™ group coaching program is based on Brené Brown’s newest book, Rising Strong which is about an important REVOLUTION…how to get back up after a fall. We have been taught to believe that falling is not a part of success, but how can that be? All the wildly successful people embrace it as part of the success process. The physics of vulnerability say: If we are brave enough, often enough, we will fall. This group coaching program is about what it takes to get back up and how owning our stories of struggle gives us the power to write daring new endings. Struggle can be our greatest call to courage and the clearest path to a wholehearted life.

This group coaching program is:

  • An 8-week intensive program – 2 hour video conference
  • Rising Strong™ curriculum provided
  • Limited to 10 attendees; minimum of 4
Mastermind Groups

What is a Mastermind Group?

Mastermind groups offer an interactive combination of brainstorming, education, peer accountability, inspiration and support in a virtual group setting to sharpen and enhance your professional skill and enhance your personal life. Mastermind groups support members to live authentically, live all-in and face the challenges living brave will bring. You will be in the company of smart, diverse and courageous people who will inspire you to go further than you would alone. A mastermind group is not a class, group coaching or networking. It is a collaborative of like-minded individuals coming together with the intent of living braver lives or to be braver leaders. It is the pursuit of a higher calling.

We meet once a month in video conferencing for 2 hours. The groups size is limited to 8 participants (minimum of 4) to ensure that each member has the opportunity to discuss their challenges, receive feedback and set goals. There is an application process to enhance compatibility in each group. Group members will help each other set stretch goals and support each other in accomplishing them. This means there is accountability for each member to be committed to their participation and committed to the success of other participants. The group requires confidentiality and a willingness to both give and receive feedback, ideas and advice in a manner that creates and maintains strong relationships. Group members become friends, mentors, advocates and partners on their path to daring living or daring leadership.

A mastermind group is not meant to be comfortable. It is meant to cause that prickly feeling of stepping into something new, exciting and a stretch. It is meant to bring you ALIVE!
