Life Coaching

Jill Bakke

I am an EXCAVATOR, who can help you find your authentic self.  My gifts include a toolbox of ways to find your own authenticity.  


You’ve heard “Follow your Bliss.”  Following your bliss is possible.  Not only possible, but mandated.  Our heart insists.  


Abraham Maslow, one of the fathers of Humanistic Psychology puts it this way: “If you plan on being anything less than you are capable of being, you will probably be unhappy all the days of your life.”


That seed of self-actualization within us is a like a five-year old pushing and pull at his mother’s arm demanding attention.  It is up to us to listen to it instead of covering it over with activity...or ignoring it if it takes a little more work, time/and or patience than we feel we have to offer.

MEMOIR WRITING: an online course

Coming Soon!  Contact Jill for details

Everyone has a story to tell. Memoir Writing provides participants the ability to gain personal insights by recapping of their life.


Many find as they write about people in their lives that they see those individuals differently than they did before. They have more compassion and understanding of friends and relatives and the life choices they made after they completed the profiles. Memoir writers also see themselves more clearly. They find patterns that appear in their lives that explain many things about their personalities. They see events that occurred in the past in a different perspective from where they now are. This is good medicine!


Memoir writers also pass along stories and characteristics  of family that bring to life ancestors in a more complete way then photographs alone can, although I urge my students to include photos. A close friend who I met through teaching memoir writing died recently. The last thing she finished before leaving earth was her memoirs, which she had begun back in the 1990s. She said it helped her to find closure.


Memoir Writing is comig soon as virtual online course with handouts and telephonic classes.   

Offering Workshops in:

Mask Masking, Memoir Writing, Journal Writing, Couples Communication, Stress Management, Anger, Death & Dying and more...
