My love story began 24 years ago on Valentine’s Day. I’d traveled out of town to see my sister. My husband Bob and I planned to go to dinner together when I got home. But Bob decided to go to the movies while he was waiting for me to arrive and sometime during “Legends of the Fall,” he had a massive heart attack and died. My children and I were thrown into an abyss of grief and shock and I lived breath to breath during those dark days. And even though he had died and I felt that part of me had died with him, something within me was born - or perhaps resurrected – a forgotten dream and the conviction of the reason I’m on the planet; my life’s purpose. That dream came true!
I’m a professional Coach and Counselor with 19 years’ experience. I’m also a speaker, author, and newspaper columnist and have written numerous articles about living a healthier, happier, and more successful life. I’ve worked with many and diverse people and groups and have facilitated workshops and presentations.
I specialize in three major areas that will lead the client to create a happy "love story" out of their life stories. These three major areas are mindfulness meditation, taking back the mind from the voice in the head, and learning how to manage personal energy. Learning these is the foundation for good health, loving relationships, creativity, and abundant living.
My expertise in these areas set us apart from life coaching and counseling as it is usually practiced, for it requires a coach who has achieved excellence in all these areas in her own life. I’ve developed this expertise over many years.
In addition, I’ve had many years’ experience of serving in leadership positions and of training others to serve. I was elected several times by my professional colleagues to represent them at the national level and to be their Regional Director, liaison and leadership trainer. I’ve also served many years on the Board of Trustees of a non-profit foundation in southern California that gives grants to support wellness. I hold Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees and worked in Education Administration for several years.
I believe that every aspect of our lives – our life stories – can be transformed into a life that we love. For permanent change, we must do the inner work of changing our minds and hearts, perceptions and beliefs. I have traveled this road and know its terrain, and out of my experience, have created the tools that help in facilitating this. This journey may sound daunting, but it is actually an enjoyable adventure!
