Home > About Me

For a number of years now, I have assisted people to reach for, and eventually achieve, their goals and dreams. As their Life Coach, Psychotherapist or Yoga Instructor, it has always been my privilege to participate in their growth and vision achievements. The venue doesn’t matter… being present, being the catalyst, and watching my clients grow move into their true authentic selves – that’s the pleasure and the thrill of my work. By using the training and experience developed over the years while working with individuals, families, couples and groups, I gladly offer to you ways to:

Determine what you want in your life
Promote your own self-healing
Improve your overall self-esteem
Develop assertiveness skills
Learn elegant communication skills
Set healthy personal boundaries

I have a deep respect for your unique differences that make you who you are. You and I will work together as a team. We’ll develop a tailored approach for you to resolve your life issues, minor and major. We do this in a confidential atmosphere, either in person or on the phone. You have a sense of safety that allows you to express your innermost desires and dreams. Together we face the blocks or stuck places that have kept your limiting beliefs about yourself in charge when you didn’t want them to be! Then you are in a position to heal and grow into who you were truly meant to be! This reflects my philosophy about helping people. I am passionate about the time I spend with you and will advocate for you to move forward, take action and to be your very best… In my practice, I have worked in many different settings including hospitals for children and adults, home health agencies, hospice, adult drug and alcohol recovery, adult day health centers and corporate environments.
