I work with individuals, families and groups as a life coach and particularly as a recovery coach. Most of the coaching I provide centers on issues of resolution, visioning, transition and growth. My principle work is a program I've developed, called Recover You, to guide participants to discover the truth and the personal strengths that they already possess deep inside and that they can discover and access to create the life they want to experience. More information about that program can be found under the Recover You tap located in the navigation bar above.

Other areas where I practice include, but are not limited to:

  • Mental Health and Substance Abuse Recovery
  • Relapse Prevention
  • Trauma and PTSD Support
  • Religious Abuse Care
  • Spiritual Restoration
  • Boundaries Development and Maintenance
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Emotional Literacy
  • Stress Reduction.

Science of Mind Practitioner

Being a Science of Mind Practitioner falls under the heading of coaching, since the two, for me, are somewhat synonymous, though used separately to honor the needs and desires of each client. I've been trained in both for nearly the same amount of time. I see the two blending seamlessly as appropriate.
