  • Difficult Roads Often Lead to
    Beautiful Destinations

    • Do you have goals in your life that you are having difficulty reaching?
    • Is there something that is holding you back that you either can’t identify or are having trouble breaking through?
    • Do you have ‘stuff’ but are still having difficulty being content or happy with your life?
    • Are you the person you had wanted to become? Naïve childhood fantasies aside, do you like the person you have developed into?

    Let my 30+ years in the mental health field help you to not only break through obstacles, but also develop contentment and joy in your life.

    I realize that no two people are the same. I tailor my coaching to meet the specific needs of my clients. I will help you to clarify what you really want out of life and coaching. I will help you recognize and work through whatever barriers are challenging you. Once barriers are removed, we must also identify and develop your strengths, attributes, and skill sets.

    Coaching is a professional relationship, but it is also a friendly one. 

    Psychology has recognized since the 1950’s that unconditional positive regard for others is a necessary and powerful catalyst for change.  I endeavor to create an environment where you can feel comfortable, safe, and engaged. Change is difficult! My initial goal is to provide a positive and non-judgmental atmosphere where clients can identify goals, barriers, and strengths.

    Are you ‘Happy’?  What does that mean?  What does it mean specifically for you?  Strong relationships, health, self-confidence, self-respect and the respect of others, spiritual connection, financial security are all pieces of the puzzle. Coaching can help you identify, prioritize, and create each of these and more.

    As a therapist for 30+ years, I supported people who were struggling with (to name a few):

    • Depression
    • Anxiety
    • Trauma and abuse
    • Couples/Relationship issues
    • Parenting
    • Adolescent issues
    • Anger Management, and
    • Grief

    Please recognize that these issues are frequently not a sign of mental illness, but just part of the experience of being human.  We all will struggle with some combination of these at some point in our lives. I can help.
