Have you ever struggled to communicate with someone? Have you ever reached a point in your life where you just were not sure of the next step? Have you ever felt misunderstood and just could not understand why? Have you ever just wanted to give up?
Even with faith we know this struggle. Many times it just takes the courage to realize how we are in our own way and the courage to educate ourselves to have new awareness so that we can take action and reconnect to our faith.
I am a Christian who is a trauma trained licensed clinical social worker in EMDR. I want to see people lead a well life so my approach is to find what is working in your life first so that we can use those skills to ensure the day can be okay for you while we work through addressing what is not going well or what you want to work through. How do we do this together? We identify your priorities and I coach you through how to address what is needed.
My 33+ year career has led me to my own practice where I specialize in Executive Coaching alongside wellness, life skills development, problem solving, visioning work to help my clients live a better life. My training ensures that we identify the negative messages that are in the way of your life, whether from your own creation or in toxic environments. And then we work to remove them in specific and targeted ways. Life is short and we all need to live our best life.
I am uniquely skilled to work with those in a season of life transition, grief, and anxiety. I find energy in helping couples find the joy in their marriage again and I particularly find energy in supporting parents unconditionally love their children when they find it hard to like some of their behaviors. I work with executives, athletes, military, entrepreneurs, etc. of all backgrounds. I support diversity, equity and inclusion efforts in all of my community, civic, professional and personal life.
