I am a deep believer in the organic unfolding of our growth and purpose – that we all possess the ability to hear our soul’s calling towards a more authentic and fulfilled life.
Sometimes change is beckoning and exciting – but we get in our own way. At other times, life speaks to us through crises, illness, work- or relationship challenges… and other loud ways to make our inner voice known. Sometimes we don’t realize the guidance hidden in the chaos or the growth potential within the obstacles. This is where we can use some extra support, and where I would love to help you listen in deeply… for often these difficulties hold the seeds of deep transformation and new momentum.
I am a Certified Professional Coach (Whole Person Coaching, Coach Training World), a Professional Counselor (LCPC-C, Maine) and a certified Family Constellation Facilitator. Combining Coaching and Constellation work makes me very effective as Relationship Coach and as Embodiment & Empowerment Coach for women at any stage of life. I am passionate about guiding women from surviving to thriving – whether you are at the beginning of your journey into self-awareness and self-care, or at the opposite end of this arc looking to launch into full self-actualization and soulful leadership.
Clients have described me as warm, present, intuitive, empathic, insightful and wise, with a spark of creativity and laughter.
Also a certified 5Rhythms Teacher and an Authentic Movement facilitator, I infuse my practice with a rich grounding in embodiment and somatic awareness. I bring more than seven years of individual coaching & counseling experience to this work and twenty years of group workshop facilitation experience, in the realm of mind-body connection, movement & expressive arts, psychosomatic issues, burn-out and stress management, family and relationship issues, codependency, life and career transitions, unresolved childhood issues and grief. I have practiced and taught in Maine and internationally. Spirituality and the natural world have always been a core element in my life and work.
