I care deeply about helping people find satisfaction, easy worry, and cope effectively with challenges in their personal and professional lives. I believe in possibilities and that there is always some way to reduce stress or improve a situation.
My unique background and experience make me especially well-equipped to help you with both career and personal challenges. With employee development expertise and a coaching instructor certification, I began my practice in 1998 with career and life coaching services. With an M.A. in Human Resources, I went on to also attain an M.S. in Counseling and began providing counseling for adults 18 years and older, as well as couples.
I'm interested in your challenges, needs and desires, and listen with empathy and unconditional positive regard, to understand what you want to be different in your life. I use an integrative approach and offer personalized resources, practical strategies, and regular check-ins to help you build a realistic plan to feel better and reach your goals.
