Communications & Conflict
As a Whole Person Certified Coach, I support and guide individuals through critical moments in their lives to create positive shifts. Individuals work with me either personally or through their organizations and employers, and I use my degree, skills and experience to help them.
I am also an MBA with over 10 years of corporate experience in marketing, strategy, corporate social responsibility, public relations and communication, so I bring all those experiences and life skills to my work as a coach. I have lived in at least 5 countries around the world so I have a rich multicultural background and have experienced change and transitions multiple times in my life. I am conscious of the challenges these situations bring and am excited to support people through them.
As human beings, there are many critical decisions we make, and goals and outcomes we work towards. Life coaching can be extremely helpful and supportive for people who have goals to achieve and dreams to fulfill. It is also a process that catalyzes change and transitions, and helps in problem solving. I work with individual clients in a holistic manner to solve problems and create positive shifts.
Some areas on which I focus:
• Geographic transitions and relocation
• Managing work relationships and stakeholders
• Career management and counseling
• Individuals who want to return to work after an extended break
• Personal development – Individuals who struggle with underlying thoughts and beliefs that keep them stuck and unable to move forward in a particular area of their life
• Work / Life balance
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.
Are you ready for a transformation? Are you tired of feeling uncertain about where your life is headed? Do you feel like you’re in a rut? Do you regularly feel drained by pain, grief, or a lack of passion?
If any of the above sounds like you, look no further. I work with people all over the world to help them transform their lives and give them direction and purpose.. to move past the feelings of pain or uncertainty and into a place of peace. As a result, my clients feel confident, fulfilled and at ease in their own skin.
Whatever the type of life change you’re looking for, we can create it together:
– Social life/relationships
– Family relations
– Entrepreneur/business development
– Romance/sex life
– Personal satisfaction
– Goal attainment
– Purposeful living
I will help you define your dream life and, most importantly, I will help you get there.

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.
Seeing clearly is a gift. It allows us to see the outer world in focus and notice the finer details. It helps us to quickly make sense of what we are taking in and ascribe definition and meaning. It enables us to work, learn, play, and explore!

Through active listening, reflecting, and asking powerful questions, I work with you to gain 20/20 clarity in your inner life, so that you can manifest what you are wanting to see, do, feel or be in your world.

ANSWER THIS QUESTION: WHAT BRINGS YOU JOY?
I’m Robin and I help depleted givers discover joy. You’ll hear my story later, but… could this be yours?
You are a GIVER: Busy, involved, committed. Your life feels complete. You have important people and situations to pour your heart into. But you have been giving so much to so many, you are depleted. You want to feel joy and excitement, but you are overscheduled. Joy isn’t even on your list. Answering the question of “what brings me joy” stumps you at first. You’re not sure if it’s ok to ask for more. Your life is full and should feel very rewarding. You worry that if you want to seek joy for yourself, you will appear selfish or ungrateful.
You admit you can’t stay depleted forever. You want to have a full bucket so you have something to share. This is what really matters to you. You could be more helpful to others if you had more within.
And, if you are honest, you want to have a full bucket for you. You want to have energy, zest, spontaneous adventures and fun. You want to feel great about your life, the whole thing, even the self-care part… the part that always comes last, if it comes at all.
Spare time is nonexistent, and you don’t believe you should slow down to focus on yourself. You don’t want to give anything up, but you recognize that if you had the time, things would be different. You would add in some of the things that used to make your heart sing, things that used to make you feel most alive.
Life is full, life is busy, yet your deepest fear is that this is all there is.
I’VE BEEN THERE AND IT ISN’T FUN
I was last on my own lists. Who am I kidding, my name never even made it onto the page. I love being a giver. The world is hurting and I can do something about it. All of my endeavors have involved giving: Contributing to a marriage, being actively involved in the lives of our two children, running a nutrition counseling practice for those with eating disorders, building a youth ministry program, providing life enrichment for senior citizens in care homes.
To me, giving is as natural as breathing.
But giving to myself… that’s another story.
I rarely factored myself into any of the above. I did not want to address my own needs. I didn’t think there was time. And I believed it was selfish. My thought was, “I am selfless, I am here for others!” I ignored multiple warnings from loved ones. You know, “You have to take care of yourself if you want to be able to take care of anyone else.” I thought they were wrong, that I am not like other people. I am a giver.
Then it happened… I ran myself into the ground. It all came to a screeching halt. I crashed and burned.
I became apathetic – me! – I didn’t care.
I did NOT care.
You know those stories of people who survived their own deaths? I could relate. I felt like I had flatlined. Let me say, it was scary, uncharted territory, and I did not like being there. My bucket was empty and I could no longer give.
I did not know that seeking joy for myself could have prevented this. I had been a happy person, living the life I wanted. But happiness and joy are different. I had neglected my own personal joy for so long– never addressing what brings ME joy. It was all about bringing OTHERS joy – and I had mountains of inner work to do as a result.
I got professional help. It took so much time out of my schedule. I missed 6 weeks of work. I could not face the fact that I didn’t care about work, so I didn’t go in. I didn’t get paid. I felt like such a failure. I learned that I had become depressed because I had not been meeting my own basic needs. For the first time, I thought, “What in the heck do I NEED?”
I realized that one of my greatest sources of joy was self-care and I was no longer going to ignore my needs.
BEAUTY FROM THE ASHES
I now try to prioritize my needs because of the joy it gives me. It feels great! I still love reaching out to others, I just remember to reach out to myself.
When my personal joy bucket is full, I have so much to give. THE TRUTH IS, WHEN I AM JOYFUL, I HAVE EVEN MORE TO GIVE THAN I EVER HAD BEFORE! I would love to help you add joy to your life before it’s too late, before you have nothing to give. Let’s figure out what brings YOU joy. Let’s fill YOUR joy bucket together and watch it overflow!
Here is the beautiful thing that must not be overlooked: Seeking joy is not selfish! It’s the exact opposite, because joy is contagious! It’s impossible to fill your joy bucket without it spilling over. Simply put, joy coaching is like a “buy one, get a load free” investment.
JOY COACHING IS A THING BECAUSE I SAID SO
I had never heard of a joy coach, but that didn’t matter. I knew that I could help depleted givers add joy to their lives, so I took a leap of faith and got the training and certification I needed. My clients have LOVED adding joy to their lives! Every one of them has had a different answer to the “what brings you joy” question. Some find it in adventure, some find it in stronger relationships, others find it in improving their health, adopting quiet time, strengthening their faith, or finding a career they love.
JOY WITH YOUR CHILDREN: A working mom wanted a closer relationship with her son. Through joy coaching, she learned that she really didn’t know his interests, so she asked him questions to feel better connected. They discovered they both enjoy some of the same music and began attending concerts together. They now share songs and discuss the impact of the music on their lives. She is overjoyed at knowing her son on a deeper level!
JOY WITH YOUR SWEETHEART: An author was having trouble with his marriage. He and his wife were living on separate continents and she wouldn’t open his messages or take his calls. Through joy coaching, he realized knowing God brings him joy. As he spent more time deepening his relationship with God, it changed his thinking. He viewed his marriage differently. He wrote his wife a 10-page love letter from his new-found perspective and she opened it. They are now eagerly waiting to be reunited.
JOY AT ANY SIZE: A budding entrepreneur wanted to have confidence in her body and start dating. Joy coaching helped her discover that dancing makes her feel alive. She began to incorporate dance breaks as rewards into her workday. She loved the feel of the dance breaks and extended them. Without even trying, she began to love her body. She has since begun meeting new people.
WHAT ABOUT YOU?
What’s your story?
You must be a giver or you wouldn’t have made it to the end.
Be honest, are you feeling depleted? Did you know that adding joy on a personal level can keep your bucket from running empty and add richness that can be shared?
And, the big question: What brings you joy? I can help you answer the big question, and I can help you obtain whatever it is that brings you joy. My hope is that joy coaching can help you do what you love most: Give fully to the people and causes you care about, by also giving to yourself.

As your Whole Person Coach, I will help you find your own authenticity so you can live a life you thought was only possible in your dreams. This is not therapy – we won’t focus on the past or diagnose you based on an existing set of conditions. This is not consulting – I don’t provide advice or “do the work” for you. What I will do is create a confidential, judgment-free space for you to express who you are as you learn to feel at home in your own skin. We will go through some exercises together to help us both identify and understand the areas you’d like to work on together. I will remain curious with you, asking dozens of thoughtful questions, hearing you fully and completely as you unravel your own brilliance.
I will help you define your dream life and, most importantly, I will help you get there.
With love, light and gratitude,
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.
