Professional Credentials

I conducted my training with the internationally renowned Coaches Training Institute (CTI) where I earned my Professional Co-Active Coach distinction. I also have advanced training in personal and organizational Relationship Systems, as well as Co-Active Leadership Development. A California transplant, I graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a degree in Philosophy (of all things!).

In addition to advanced training in professional coaching, I’m currently a student of Dr. Alberto Villoldo, internationally known shaman, author and medical anthropologist, at The Four Winds Society in Utah. I’m awed by the transformative results from the techniques of Light Body Healing, which include soul retrieval, destiny tracking, and healing one’s ancestral lineage. The techniques have been adapted from the wisdom medicine and healing practices of the indigenous peoples of the Andes and Amazon regions of Peru.

Prior to my coaching career, I worked for 15 years in leadership roles growing values-based businesses. As Founding Executive Director of Giving New England, I led an entrepreneurial initiative to leverage new economic resources for social profit. Giving New England emerged as an innovative leader in the field of venture philanthropy, and was featured in Kiplinger’s, The Boston Globe, Boston Business Journal, National Public Radio and Women’s Business.

My rich and varied life has given me a wide range of experiences in the areas of human potential, spiritual traditions, business practices and relationship dynamics. The yin and yang of life.

Professional Services

I work with plain and fancy folks looking for the support, structure and tools to help them create a meaningful and rich life. My clients range from soul-searching CEO’s, income-challenged creative types, visionaries in career transition, and time-challenged stay-at-home moms.

My job as a coach is to be a trusted advisor, a curious listener and practical guide who challenges and cheers you on to be your best. In the coaching partnership, we work together to create success that is aligned with your treasured priorities and unique character. Coaching helps you move beyond your history and habits to create new possibilities for yourself. It is ideal for folks who are ready and willing to make meaningful changes for a fulfilling life.

Possible Coaching topics include:

  • Being more successful and effective in your chosen profession.
  • Managing a life transition and getting back on track with what matters most.
  • Changing your relationship with money to experience financial freedom.
  • Cultivating the courage to follow your inner knowing and true nature.
  • Improving your relationship with your spouse and creating a vision for the future.

Unique Qualities

Part of what makes me successful as a coach is my ability to meet the client where they are, and to bring a large, colorful toolbox with which to explore. Whether I’m working with a couple trying to regain their spark, or an executive director in career transition or a midlife woman trying to make sense of menopause, I create a space that makes room for the spiritual aspects along with the practical, down-to-earth elements that need attention.

I bring insight, clarity, know-how, and humor to my work with clients. My goal is to create a safe and courageous environment for you to reach your full potential and expression in the world – no matter how large or small that world is. By moving beyond old habits and histories, I witness client’s breakthroughs in their career, relationships and life.

Professional Passion

The fundamental element of my work is helping folks come into right relationship with themselves, the people in their lives, and the world around them. I believe that drawing on our deep knowing allows us access to our internal guidance system which is critical in making important life decisions. It allows us to know the direction of our True North, and sense when we’re not on track.

It takes tremendous courage to live your truth, and it’s very unfulfilling not to. For me, it’s a joy to guide people in discovering who they are, what matters most, and what’s wanting expression in their lives. I feel honored to partner with folks along their sacred journey.
