I became a Life and Executive Coach because it allows me to bring all parts of myself to my work helping people change their lives -- both at work and beyond work.

As a social worker and psychotherapist, I learned to listen to the deeper messages about what people want for their lives. As an Employee Assistance consultant, I learned where to find the resources people need to make their lives work better. I learned what senior managers and executives need to succeed with their employees.

As a specialist in traumatic stress, I learned about the incredible strength, resourcefulness and resilience of people as they face life's greatest challenges.

As a wife and mother, I learned the value of humor and perspective in building a family and intimate relationships. Now, as a life coach, my great joy is to inspire people to move beyond the barriers that have held them back.

I love working with people in transition: people feeling stale in their jobs and looking for something new; women whose children are growing up and who finally have time to focus on themselves; people beginning to raise a family and trying to figure out how to balance everything; people adjusting to being in a committed partnership and people adjusting to being newly single.

To increase my effectiveness I've been certified to administer the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and The Leadership Circle 360 Profile(TM). I received my coach training through Coaches Training Institute (CTI), one of the largest and most respected coach training organizations nationwide. I currently hold the PCC certification through the International Coach Federation (ICF) and have been elected President of the Metro DC Chapter of the ICF for 2008.

My commitment to you is to help you refine your goals, develop effective strategies for reaching them, and to inspire you to create your life with passion and excitement.
