About My Clients

Clients currently being served are victims of child sexual, emotional, and physical abuse, combat veterans, and individuals facing personal and professional transitions. Past clients have presented issues surrounding OCD, anxiety disorders, grief trauma, addiction cycles, and relationship breakdowns. Parents and children are able to take advantage of my years as a National Certified Parenting Coach, particularly those with challenging attachment styles.

My Background and Approach

I am a spouse, parent and grandparent. As a retired educator of 40 years holding certifications with two national parenting organizations, I bring a wealth of experience servicing a wide demographic field. My work in the field of Ontological Coaching and EMDR provides a unique blend of transformational mindset work informed by current research in the area of neuropsychophysiology.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe in the body and mind's natural inclination to move toward healing, and that some will benefit from my passion and skillset to forge a path toward better outcomes. Everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and integrity, and it is my ethical duty to support ALL who come authentically desiring a better life.
