My clients come from many walks of life–executives, entrepreneurs, parents, young adults, and artists. A trend that I’ve noticed lately is that many of people who I’m meeting are struggling with life transitions such as retirement and starting new careers. Part of my practice is devoted to pro-bono coaching those without the means to pay for coaching, including parolees from the Oregon state prison system.
Anyone who works with me get a skilled guide with broad coaching expertise who cares deeply for every client I have the privilege to serve. I also bring a wide range of business and creative experience to my coaching, not the least of which is six decades of life experience!

The results have included helping entrepreneurs launch new businesses, a CEO become a more effective communicator, another to return to work after a debilitating brain injury.

My life has always been steering me in the direction of helping and serving others. Ten years ago, a series of business and health crises led me to becoming a professional coach.
