Your doubts and fears are holding you back from producing your artistic dream. Your audience awaits, and you are the one holding up the show. You are frustrated that your signature project still sits on the back burner, that you can’t seem to take those first steps to realizing it or can’t seem to sustain the momentum. You dance between that longing for your creativity to be seen, celebrated and cherished by others, and undermining yourself with doubt that you could be successful.
Your dreams want to be exercised and shared. The world is missing out on your gifts, because of these nagging thoughts and the indecision that they bring. You keep putting it off coming up with a million excuses: You don’t have the time. You don’t have the energy, the money or the support. You fear that if you start this project and fail that that would be worse than not starting it at all.
Don't keep your audience waiting. It is time to give your project wings.
Let me help you bring that artistic dream to life. The world is waiting for your input. Take the first step by setting up an introductory coaching session to start living your dream.
Let me support you in making a plan to bring your project to life.

I am a relationship and dating coach and focus on helping clients create fulfilling, satisfying and long lasting relationships through methods of intentional love. I work with clients to deepen their emotional and physical connections through mindfulness, effective communication tools and value based goal setting.
I have been on a life long journey to help people work through struggles and live their best lives. I have a B.A. in Psychology and an M.A. in Clinical Psychology. It was my work at the community mental health center, where I realized how important creating a personal connection is to helping clients set and achieve their goals. I am also a certified yoga instructor which has given me a deep understanding of how intention and mindfulness plays into both our everyday behavior and long term goals. I decided to tie all of my knowledge and experience together with whole person coaching and received my WPCC in 2018. As someone who has been in a 28 year relationship, I realized my true passion lies with helping couples connect and love deeply.
Even the healthiest relationships can suffer from a lack of connection and lose their momentum. Most couples become physically and emotionally disconnected from each other not out of malice, but out of mindlessness. When relationships go on auto-pilot, needs become neglected, resentment builds and connection deteriorates.
This problem does not necessarily stem from a lack of love, but rather a lack of gratitude, excitement, passion and intention. My positive focused and solution oriented coaching techniques are specifically designed to improve your communication skills and day to day interactions, deepen your emotional connection and address issues surrounding physical intimacy.
Relationships, like health and fitness, take effort to maintain. You wouldn't go to the gym for a month and assume your fitness journey was complete. In order to reap the benefits of a healthy relationship, you must be willing to put in the work.
I look forward to helping couples reclaim their happiness and deep connections so that they can enjoy the meaningful and satisfying relationships they desire and deserve.
Contact me today and take the first step to making your relationship all it can be!

Life Coaching with Energy Psychology is a quality, research-based model of coaching that supports you in exploring and changing a wide range of issues. These include life direction clarity, stress reduction, mood regulation, and trauma healing. Clients report benefits in relationships, greater individuation-i.e. perspective through life’s challenges-as well as overall satisfaction.
Life Coaching with Energy Psychology strives for body-mind integration through mindfulness theory and discussion, and via modern Eastern trends.
It may include a chakra analysis of your subtle energy field, and/or astrological computations. Combined with the most current psychotherapeutic and neuroscience findings, the result is self-awareness, leading to more positive and healthy life choices.
For Carl Jung, (the energy of) yoga represented a rich storehouse of inner experience and of the individuation process in particular.

We have been married 28 years saying “I do” at 19 and having twin boys at 21. There were times that we worked opposite shifts to support our family, often only seeing each other in passing. Communication was almost non-existent.
We faced major moves, leaving family and friends to take a job. The job wasn't quite as advertised causing Bob serious health issues and putting major strain on our finances.
By this time our relationship was in shambles. A short separation forced us to take a hard look at our marriage. We agreed our relationship was important to us so we tried again.
Things have not been perfect.
Bob worked 2 hours away from home for over a year. It meant Holly was left to parent alone the majority of the time.
Holly lost her job just a few months after being offered a promotion. We ended up losing our home because of it.
We have struggled, fought, and thought it was all over. We pushed through the obstacles and have come out the other side stronger.
We want to help you! Offering you the tools you need and kind of support that let¹s you figure things out for yourself. We believe in the possibility of real & lasting love for anyone who strives for it. Let’s work together to help you create your Miracle Marriage.
