About Allyn Amerongen

Allyn Amerongen is an Oregon native whose history of chronic pain and illness has shaped her beliefs, actions, and most importantly, her mindset. As an active member in the personal development community, Allyn utilizes her unique toolkit to work with clients and help them achieve the life they envision for themselves.

 

Having the Attitude to Overcome Pain

Aside from the illness itself, dealing with its emotional toll is demanding. Having done it herself, Allyn helps others focus on joy when all else seems bleak. When you prioritize thinking about what you can do, instead of what you can’t, you’ll realize the true heights of your capabilities.

 

Fear and Faith in a Journey of Healing

Even if you’re not dealing with a chronic illness, Allyn has lessons that apply to everyone. She understands fear. She also understands how it limits potential like nothing else. Being afraid to look bad, or to fail, or to disappoint, prevents many from even starting. Allyn has come to know that just trying can be counted as a success.

The fact of the matter is that you are not defined by your illness. Taking the time to do what you need spiritually and emotionally will reinforce that idea. It’s a reminder that you can still live on your own terms.
