Hello, and thanks for wanting to know more about me.
I am a Life Navigation and Change coach, NLP Practitioner, Forest Bathing Guide, burnout interventionist, mindfulness practitioner and natural observationist working with anyone dealing with or facing impactful change.
My mission is to help people adapt to natural life changes and change brought on by unfortunate circumstance by overcoming anxiety, insecurity, lack of confidence, the sense of being lost or without purpose. Clients learn to adopt new perspectives, attitudes and behaviors bringing resourcefulness, resiliency and a wellness mindset.
My purpose? To inspire others to connect with their natural ability to adapt to change, overcome obstacles and understand how to make adjustments necessary for problem solving, resolving issues, and coping during stressful situations.
I am here to:
- Help you connect to your own natural instincts and ability to overcome and adapt to change,
- Inspire self-discovery and exploration,
- Stimulate the development of flexible, sustainable strategies for navigating through, adapting to, and remaining resilient with life’s changes.
I have a 30+ year career in human and social services and alternative education assessing human behavior and encouraging multi-level communication to enhance and develop personal and professional relationships. Decades of service to the non-profit sector demonstrates my connection to diverse populations, social systems, businesses, and human and wild communities and my dedication to helping individuals achieve outstanding results and foster a diverse, equitable world.
I hold a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Castleton University in Vermont, and am a Qualified Professional Coach, NLP Practitioner and Level 2 Certified DISC Administer and Interpreter from The Coaching Academy. As a coach working in nature, I have a unique responsibility of care extending beyond that of traditional coaching and my additional qualifications reflect this. I am a Certified Wilderness First Responder, trained as a Natural Navigator and hold a diploma in Shinrin Yoku (forest bathing) in addition to having completed graduate coursework in Plant Biology from Ohio University.
As a Professional Coach and NLP Practitioner, I hold professional memberships with the Association for Coaching and Association for NLP.
The benefits of coaching are astounding and include an increase in creative thinking, problem solving and self-esteem. Those who receive coaching develop focus, confidence, overcome anxiety, gain clarity, achieve goals and reach dreams.
