I adore my profession and life. I practice the same skills and strategies I teach you, in MY life, EVERY DAY. As a result, I have become a person I admire and respect, quirks, vulnerabilities and all. My coaching style is grounded in scientific research, strength-focused, collaborative and FUN! Most people are able to see good progress in 6-12 visits.

I provide a unique combination of business, counseling, coaching and teaching experience/skills. My formal education includes undergraduate studies in business and psychology and a master’s degree in clinical social work. Professional experience includes 20 wonderful years of evidence-based practice, graduate level teaching experience, plus 15 years in business marketing and management.

As a passionate life-long learner I have completed intensive post-graduate training in the following:
