to becoming a coach,
I was an occupational therapist with many years of experience in
pediatric and geriatric rehabilitation and technology adaptations
in homes, hospitals and public schools.
began coaching in
2000 as a Certified Graduate of Coach University and a Professional
Certified Coach with the International Coach Federation.
my coaching career I have had the pleasure of supporting professionals
achieve career transitions and goals, artists breaking away from
their old lives to find greater authenticity, spiritual seekers
seeking insight and multitudes of relationships finding solace.
My approach to coaching integrates the whole person; from spiritual
identity to personal and professional /career goals and relationships
in every form.
have discovered over the years that the people I have been primarily
attracting are those within my age range and going through their
own midlife crisis; just like me.
One of my favorite quotes is, "The best way to learn is
to teach." ~Ram Dass~ And so, in
order to help my clients, and myself, I needed to learn. The journey
is ongoing. However, thanks to many pioneers in the field of midlife
crisis, I can finally say, I see not just light at the end of the
tunnel, but a true calling from our soul to finally unveil our Self
in the world.
I was born in New York in 1954. I began meditating at the age of
13 years old and had a profound awakening in 1979. From that experience
I realized we are exactly what we think. With me as your coach you'll
find I draw from multiple angles ranging from global spiritual perspectives
to scientific research, business development to personal relationships.
graduated from SUNY in 1981 with a degree in occupational therapy
and worked many years in geriatric and pediatric rehabilitation
specializing in assistive technology.
1998 I began studies at Coach University; graduating in 2001. I
was certified through the International Coach Federation as a Professional
New York native, I also lived in France for 10 years while married
and raising three children. I now live in the breathtaking Blue
Ridge Mountains of Virginia with my garden, my animals.
"We are what we think. All that we are arises with our
thoughts. With our thoughts we make the world.
Speak or act with an impure mind and trouble will follow you as
the wheel follows the ox that draws the cart.
Speak and act with a pure mind and happiness will follow you as
your shadow; unshakable."
