About Me

About me

As a Professional Co-Active Coach, I bring intuitive wisdom and practical tools
to help you create clarity, happiness and
abundance in your life.

I put all my creativity into everything I do.

In my long career as an award-winning designer, art director, and life-long entrepreneur, I’ve created several profitable businesses. For over 25 years, I have run my own companies and consulted with hundreds of professionals, business owners and Fortune 500 companies including Gap, Pottery Barn, Sierra Club, and Charles Schwab. I also exhibited my fine art paintings and photography in galleries throughout the United States.

With all my success, busy with running several businesses, I found myself working overtime with my hands glued to my computer or isolated in my studio. I was doing all the things I thought I wanted to do and should do, but I was out of balance and was quite often, miserable. Stuck in limited ideas of the way things should be and what my options were, I wasn’t aware of how to change my life to feel fulfilled and at peace.

 

Then… I had a number of wake up calls. I went through a divorce, the death of a parent, along with significant life changes, all while running my businesses and parenting two kids. Finally, emotional stress and burnout turned physical. I developed chronic fatigue and a repetitive strain injury. I was deeply in need of a shift but was overwhelmed and unclear on the direction I should take my life.

There was an additional twist that changed everything.

The repetitive strain injury that I’d been nursing for years flared up to a point where I realized it wasn’t a flare-up anymore. This essentially forced me to change my entire life and pivot the creative skills I had spent 25+ years of my life mastering as a designer, art director, photographer and painter. I had to dig deep and find the strength and resilience within myself to make necessary changes.

As a lover of all things related to human consciousness, spirituality, psychology and personal development. I have studied the works of renowned teachers including Eckhart Tolle, Byron Katie, Yogananda, Thich Nhat Hahn, Michael Singer, David Deida, Anodea Judith and Marshal Rosenberg and many others.

Other methodologies I have studied include Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Constellation Therapy, Non-Violent/Compassionate Communication, Breathwork,  Shamanic Studies along with Law of Attraction Principles.

My ten years working one-on-one with a zen monk helped develop my voice and vision.

These subjects are a lifeline to me for cultivating inner wisdom and growth and what I drew on during the many transitions I was facing.

My Manifesto
