My coaching is based on the premise that nothing is wrong with you, it’s only that you have developed some habits that aren’t particularly useful anymore. The habits have to do with thinking, believing, feeling, responding, avoiding, seeking. Through the examination of these habits, you will naturally open up to doing what you don’t normally do, and this is how you genuinely change over time.
It’s not a sexy, glamorous, over-the-top, leave-everything-behind-and-get-a-new-life kind of change. Rather, it’s a change in the experience of normal, mundane, everyday life.
This is a big deal when we are struggling to make it through day-to-day life.
It’s a change that is genuine and that lasts. It’s a return to inner peace, and a sense of being comfortable in your own skin. It’s a calm inside that runs steady and deep, as life continues to bring its ups and downs.
The coaching work I do is experiential rather than philosophical. This means that we will spend our time feeling into what is actual happening with you in the present moment, rather than just talking about it and analyzing it. This is one of the key reasons my coaching can have more impact in a shorter amount of time compared to years of traditional talk therapy.
I feel 100% on purpose when I am coaching. I enjoy listening, being present, and reflecting back to clients their own inner wisdom. There is tremendous meaning for me in this type of work. I consider it both an honor and a privilege.

I would typically have a free, no strings attached, 30 minute consultation with a potential client. The intention for the consultation is for both of us to get a sense of whether or not the coaching relationship will be a good fit going forward. A potential client can share what he or she hopes to achieve through coaching, ask questions, or raise concerns. I can share my approach and philosophy, as well as my services and associated fees.
I am a Certified Life Coach. I also received training at the New York Zen Center for Contemplative Caregiving.
I do have a standard pricing system.
Coaching Session (1 phone call, 60 minutes) - $200
30 Day Package (4 phone calls, 60 minutes each, plus email support) - $500
I got started in this business as a result of my own life journey. My mother is a narcissist, and this has impacted my experience of life. I realized she was a narcissist at the age of 41, and that realization allowed me to begin my journey of healing. I received a lot of help along the way, and today I experience life completely differently than I used to. Before, I experienced everything as painful. Now, I live mostly at peace, and when that peace is disrupted, I have tools to deal with it. I feel called to help others as they work to lessen their own suffering and live with more love, peace and joy in their lives.
I've worked with both men and women, adults in their 30's, 40's and 50's, many of whom have unresolved trauma related to family dynamics during childhood, death of loved ones, or other circumstances. A number of my clients experience depression, long to live differently, but feel stuck. Some are going through periods of significant life transition and need support dealing with the emotions and thoughts that arise when things change.
I absolutely love cold, snowy, wintery days. Today we are having one of those days in Colorado. I'm enjoying a warm coffee indoors, working on my business - which is my passion in life - and my dog is snuggled up on the couch.
I suggest you drop out of your head, and into your heart, to make a decision. The mind is an analyzing machine, it's job is to rationalize, and to come up with pros and cons. As a result, it's not very helpful for decision making when it's in the driver's seat. Your heart, on the other hand, already knows who you are meant to work with. Drop into your heart, imagine working with the particular pro, and see what you feel. The answer lies there.
I think some good questions to think through are:
1) What is my intention for hiring a pro? What do I want to get out of it?
2) Am I ready to make a change in my life? Change isn't necessarily easy or pleasant, am I at a point in my life where I'm committed to change, even when it gets hard?
3) How do I tend to get in my own way? What are my biggest challenges to meeting my objectives?
