PRACTICAL WISDOM FOR AN EXTRAORDINARY LIFE
Two degrees in psychology and intensive training in life coaching and hypnotherapy have given me a firm foundation in human dynamics and an equally firm belief in our endless ability to change and grow. In complement to my psychological training, many years of exploring Eastern philosophies have shown me how to use valuable spiritual principles and practices for living a meaningful life.

Intuitive and compassionate support for achieving the life changes you seek with integrity and respect for all involved.

Your Personal Renaissance
An opportunity to move beyond your stuck places, release your creativity, make more discerning decisions, and build mutually gratifying relationships.
Insightful guidance and support for further addressing your inner issues, more fully opening your heart and your mind, and flourishing on the path of awakening.
All services are offered in person (Santa Cruz, CA) or remotely via Skype, Facetime, or telephone. Email support is available between sessions.
The work we did helped me clarify and give voice to what was truly important for me to accomplish in my business and in life. It helped me to be more open to myself in a way that allowed me to be more open to life.

Because I serve not only as a life coach but also as a practical wisdom teacher and spiritual mentor, the changes you make will be in alignment with what you truly value. And the life you live will be one of integrity.
As the word transformation implies, this work goes beyond pressing concerns or isolated goals to making changes that will affect everything you do in life. If you truly want to move beyond your current limitations and "stuck places" to live a life with considerably more freedom, more fulfillment, and more joy in simply being yourself…
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could clean your home just one time? Do a little dusting, a little vacuuming, wash the floors and bathrooms —and never need to do it again? That’s how I think of inner work. I can’t imagine that one experience of self-reflection and exploration (no matter how long or intense) would serve us for a lifetime. Too many things change and affect us differently at various times in our lives.
Now, instead of referring to this essential practice as inner work, I often call it “inner housekeeping” because it needs to be done on a regular basis. That’s why I teach clients how to use the tools they need to do this important work—first with the kind of thorough cleaning you do before guests come to stay, then with the maintenance work you do to keep your “home” in good shape.
Although I integrate methods from the various education and trainings I've received, mostly I draw upon my personal experience as someone who has spent a lifetime journeying from a young woman who tried very hard to be who she thought she should be, to becoming comfortable with, even proud of, who she already was and who she was becoming.
Along the way, I devised simple techniques for:
"dissolving” inner conflicts before they deplete one’s energy,
staying balanced despite others' witting or unwitting attempts to sabotage us,
reclaiming and integrating all of one’s self (especially the parts we try to hide, condemn, or run away from),
living with integrity so that we truly like the person that we are.
It is my extreme pleasure to companion people on this fascinating journey, show them how to use "practical wisdom" and help them to live a more awakened and gratifying life.
