Communications & Conflict
Are you struggling to carve out time to spend together?
Is communication difficult?
Are you and your partner on different pages when it comes to finances or children?
Relationships, no matter how strong, have their share of challenges. And that’s not a bad thing. Often times we just need some new tools and techniques to navigate through them.
Inside our workshops and private coaching sessions you’ll find:
New listening and communication skills will help initiate more constructive conversations.
Learning each others values around money and finances will help you discover why you make your financial decisions
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.

Professional – I have spent the last 17 in executive leadership. Working to transform organizational culture and make an impact on the lives of our staff, customers and the communities that we serve. I began coaching as a leadership tool and then found that I really appreciated the Positive Psychology theory related to personal growth and organizational change. Leadwell Pacific is my private practice, allowing me to coach a very distinct clientele interested leadership growth and culture.
Training – What life has not taught me, I have worked hard to learn at school. I have enjoyed a broad educational background in liberal arts (B.S. Willamette U.), Bible college, seminary and graduate studies in Organizational Design and Systems Renewal (M.A. Seattle U.). I have completed two different professional coaching programs of study. I feel like my lived experience, professional experience and educational mastery really has prepared me to walk alongside you as an executive coach.

How I got here,
…and Why I’m a Life Coach
As a transgender woman, I know the risks of being true to one’s self at the deepest level. I speak from experience when I say that with a bit of courage, the right kind of support, and yes, some risk, successful change always leads to a rich, fulfilling life.
The idea of transition or “coming out” isn’t limited to sexuality or gender. Life eventually forces all of us to choose between becoming real and showing up in our lives, or staying safely—if miserably—hidden.
I spent a large portion of my life hidden behind any facade I could spin to keep my fears and confusion packed up so tight no one could possibly see me. From that space, that seemed so safe, I ran a business, had relationships and periodically showed up at events in my life that I thought made a difference.
Breaking down those walls and unraveling the beliefs that kept me frozen in fear and self loathing was not a cake walk. In retrospect, doing the work to get through the roughs patches wasn’t all that hard and in the end the rewards have been amazing! Things like increased self-awareness, self-confidence, connecting with other people and a willingness to be vulnerable.
Professionally, and prior to becoming a certified Whole Person Life Coach, I was an expert in solving puzzles;
I owned several successful businesses. I’ve been on the cutting edge of designing and manufacturing new equipment for start-up industries. I designed and patented equipment and had the pleasure of watching most of it work well and sell.
Yes, there were times I drove myself crazy trying to get to the bottom of a failed idea, all the while saying to myself “I can do this myself” or “I just can’t afford help.” What I didn’t realize at the time was how my assumptions got in the way of what I could really accomplish. So, I’ve been there. Self doubt, unhelpful beliefs and general stubbornness!
Having let go of past self-imposed restraints (indoctrinated beliefs) I decided to follow my hearts desire and help others to stretch towards believing in themselves, achieving the things they want, and become the best shiny being they can possible be.
So lets make this easy! I offer an awesome support system that takes in all the areas of your life. I’m here to help you gather your courage, align your thoughts and ideas with your goals and actions, then support you in Making it Happen!

My motto is, why just survive when you can thrive?
Every person deserves the life they desire. I can offer tools to help my clients achieve their visions. I am a different type of health coach. Helping those battling illness reach their highest potential is my specialty. I know how much illness can knock you down. I have lived with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis for almost 20 years. At one point it ruled my world. I have been at my lowest low. Now I rule my disease. I offer my clients a way to cohabitate with their illness. Limitations caused by our health aren’t punishments but instead, they are challenges.
Through my own personal deep understanding of chronic illness and auto-immune diseases, I can assist my clients in finding the best whole body and holistic options for peace and calm as well navigating and advocating for themselves in what can often feel like an overwhelming and foreign world of medicine and doctors. Using an individualized method of connecting to each client allows me to address their specific needs and collaborate in producing a plan to live harmoniously with their illness and create a path to a successful, happy life despite the obstacles.
I am living proof that it is possible to take control of your life even while sick. I have lived with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis for almost 20 years and have struggled for two decades trying to live a life that I felt was socially acceptable. I have tried to live as an able-bodied person. I now know I don’t have to sacrifice myself, but instead, adjust the world around me to better fit my needs. With whole person coaching I’m now doing work that is my true calling. Let me help you find yours too.
Do you wish your relationships could be as full of fire as they were when you were younger? Or was your sex life never as smoking as you wanted it to be? When you and your lover have alone time, do you look forward to exciting intimacy or do you dread the routine?
As a psychologist since 1987, I have worked with people exploring sexuality, working through trauma and people in various stages of intimate relationships. I have worked with families and divorcing spouses. As a whole life relationship coach, I have worked with couples and relationship groups to help heal relationships or to help people decide to end them and do so with grace and care. My greatest joy is working with people to create their sizzling hot enduring sexual lives. To me, there is nothing sadder than a life full of regret. I know that everyone can have her ideal sexual relationship. My mission is to show you how to create yours.
