For three decades, I’ve worked with individuals, families, and organizations in setting meaningful goals and developing effective plans to reach them. I spent over 20 years in sales and sales management, including 10 years at KIRO/CBS in Seattle; I also built and oversaw the operation of a multi-million-dollar promotional agency, and served as managing director for a telecommunications start-up. But despite the fact that my career was satisfying and challenging, I’d known for some time that my true calling – and passion – was to work with others as a counselor and coach. That’s when I decided to make my own life shift, following the guidance of my internal voice and commencing graduate work in psychology and life coaching, so I could help others create the life they want – and deserve.

In addition to my work as a counselor and coach, I’m also an active member of my community. I’ve served on local non-profit boards, and currently serve on the development committee for Navos Mental Health. I’ve worked with at-risk teens, served as a mentor to young mothers, and helped launch Oodles of Doodles, an activity book for critically ill children. I hold an M.A. in Psychology & Mental Health Counseling from Antioch University, a B.A. in Communications from the University of Washington, and am a certified coach through Accomplishment Coaching. I’m also a mother of two, spouse, and caretaker, so I know first-hand what it’s like to juggle the demands of work, family, and self-development. I tap into the wisdom gleaned from both my own life experience and professional training to help you discover your goals and intentions, then teach you practical skills for creating real and lasting change in your life.

For your convenience, my practice is based in both Seattle and Bainbridge Island. I look forward to working with you to find the answers you seek and make tangible progress toward the life you want – and deserve.
