How it Works

How It Works With Coaching, Consulting or Trauma Work

After an assessment, I will help you create, navigate and achieve definable goals. As we come upon problems or thoughts in the way, we will deal with them. I have unique tools to help people with mental, emotional, or motivational blocks.
We meet on a weekly or bimonthly basis to help you reach your goals either via phone or with secure video conferencing.
I do not offer coaching packages, but prefer payment at the time of service via a credit or debit card. We will work at your pace.

I enjoy sharing approaches that work. As we work together, I want to hear your thoughts. We can talk, brainstorm, use tools, create an accountability plan, and more. If you come upon blocks, we will use new and novel approaches such as somatic experiencing, the havening technique, brainspotting, and more to help you reach your goals.

Let me help you step outside of yourself to gain perspective to see what you can change, accept or modify. If I am not the person to help you, I will do my best to help you find the person who has the skills or perspective you need.

A Little Background...

My Story

Once upon a time, I had a wish. I wanted a successful business that embodied my philosophy and helped as many people as possible. I created what I wanted and it was successful beyond my dreams. As time went on, my goals changed and I realized coaching is where my passion lies.

Following in my adoptive father’s footsteps, I earned my Master’s and Doctorate degrees in Psychology. During this time I was coaching people, however, I then went on to become a licensed psychologist (PSY23759) in California and earned certifications in Personal Growth Coaching, Somatic Experiencing, EMDR, Brainspotting, and the Havening Technique. I built a successful private practice, at one point, with too many clients in a month's schedule and had gone beyond my maximum. I went to see a coach. I told her I wanted to weave coaching back into what I was doing.

She said, “I am going to talk you out of that.” After questioning me, she said, “Oh you have more referrals than you can handle? You should start a center.” Once I was clear on my philosophy, I hired staff and built a center.

I had a vision of what I wanted and built that vision: A successful business with no more than 6 employees where we could help the public and create a place where people wanted to work. I wanted a business that would enable me to have more fun, travel, and spend time with those I enjoyed. I created this business in 2006 and sold it in 2019.

Why does this matter? I have a wealth of information that may help you get to where you want to go. I am in my 50s and have manifested multiple dreams over many years. I believe in myself and I believe you.
