I work with people of all ages who are wondering what happened to life as they knew it, and long to figure out what comes next. Change happens-- graduation, major moves, job searching, new careers, getting married, having children, all-too-quickly becoming an empty-nester, retirement, and more. Fear, confusion, anxiety, loss of identity and purpose, often grip us during these times, as we head into uncharted waters. I help people navigate these transitions, and transform their lives, so they can sail on in faith, confidence, peace, hope, new identity, purpose, and renewed vision. What makes me unique is that I've experienced almost every kind of transition myself and grown through each one with the Lord's help. I bring this plus biblically-based training, and extensive ministry experience to coaching. I coach with a heart of compassion, empathy, and warm, non-intimidating, manner, gently but firmly challenging people to get unstuck. As a result, people feel comfortable expressing their deepest concerns and hopes to me, knowing I'm really there with them.
