Support For Life Challenges Across The Life Span

What is life coaching?

A life coach is a Board Certified professional who helps clients achieve their personal goals; from finding your way after trauma, getting "unstuck" from negative behaviors in your relationships or with food and perhaps rediscovering "you" inside the empty house after the children are gone. Sometimes people just don't know what they want; life coaching provides them with the opportunity to explore life's crossroads.  A life coach relies on principles of positive psychology and supports clients while they build the tools to generate their own solutions. This is how everyone becomes empowered!! Empowerment is not given-- it's gained through your own work and commitment to face your life's challenges. 

What happens during a coaching session?

We begin by talking about you current situation and your visions. I ask you questions designed to encourage your insights, explore your options and challenge your assumptions. Once you have defined your goals you will move on to defining and committing to specific action steps that you need to make prior our next meeting.  We begin each session with a review of your progress and make any adjustments until you have reached your identified results.  Each coaching session is different and designed to encourage your clarity for solutions.

Masters of Science Counseling


Board Certified Coach

Hello and welcome to my site and thanks for visiting, before you get to learn a bit about me, please know that I believe, from the core of my being, everyone can benefit from coaching. I know this from personal experience.

 Having that connection to one person that would listen to me, hear my dreams, my struggles, my fears no matter how silly or selfish they sounded, even to me. 

Trusting that person to always be objective, never judge me and help me to make sense of how I could move forward, that’s what I needed, that’s what I got, and that’s why I know the value of coaching. 

And that’s what I want to do with you.
