About My Practice: 

I work with clients on a variety of levels. People are experiencing life on a multitude of levels and often become out of balance in one area or another. These imbalances can lead to serious challenges in one’s life, as well as in their relationships with others. This can ultimately lead a person into major obstacles in pursuit of their personal and professional goals. Life coaching is a valid, effective, and productive method to resolve issues, clarify our path and purpose, and achieve our chosen goals. My approach is integrative in that it takes account the whole person, including all eight dimensions of their wellness. It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship between the practitioner and patient, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate options. This gives me the needed information and tools to create a balanced and appropriate plan of action for maximizing a holistic lifestyle for my clients. I neither reject conventional methods nor accept alternative therapies uncritically. Instead, I have been taught that good solutions are based on good science; they are inquiry-driven. I am open to new modalities. Effective solutions that are natural, less invasive, and more cost-effective should be used whenever possible. Alongside the concepts creating a balanced and appropriate plan of action for optimizing peoples' health, the broader concepts of health promotion and the prevention of illness are paramount.
