Let's Get Acquainted
I've experienced and witnessed the challenge of change. I know trying something new and different takes courage. When you work with me, you enter an atmosphere of safety and acceptance - a place where you can let go and dream big.
I have the personal experience, professional expertise and innate passion for coaching people to achieve their dreams. I work with people who want to go from good to better, who want to improve their relationships, careers or personal lives.
My coaching style is intuitive, holistic and practical. My friends call me no-nonsense, reliable and trustworthy. While talking through your challenges is part of the coaching process, taking action is what changes your life. I partner with you to visualize and go after whatever it is that you want. If you are tired of just talking about your problems and are ready to make magic happen, let’s talk.
I live with my husband, two kids and our rascally cat in Portland, Oregon. I was a therapist for 18 years and find coaching a natural expression of my strengths and experience. I am a recovering addict, a cancer survivor, & life-long yogi. I’ve learned a lot along the way and I practice what I preach. When I’m not doing the work I love, you can find me being creative in the kitchen, connecting with friends and family, and exploring our beautiful corner of the earth.
Whether you want to experience greater joy and ease, a deeper connection with yourself and others, or the enthusiasm of living the life of your dreams, together we can make it happen.
