Picking a professional coach can feel difficult, but I'll make it as simple as possible. My promise: I'll help you, or I'll help you find someone who can.


My philosophy

I'm solution-focused, but also understand that some solutions take time to unfold. I'm convinced that my patient, supportive, and appreciative working style offers the most direct method to finding solutions and addressing challenging problems in life, work, and relationships.

Working on work

If you are struggling with work, you should know that I bring over 25 years of successful experience in business management. I combine practical and professional experience with an in-depth understanding of transformative psychological principles and practice.

working on life

I help clients who are struggling with relational issues, whether they are at home, work, or with life in general. Because I am one of the few coaches that works closely with clients on referral from psychiatrists, I have developed a creative and useful approach to working with individuals who cope with depression, anxiety, and bipolar diagnoses. I focus on the individual’s strengths, not their diagnosis but I also take in account the challenges of working with mood and energy fluctuations.
