I am a professional Life Coach who specializes in reconnecting individuals with their life purpose, helping them recover their creativity and to navigate change and transition through transforming blocks and limiting beliefs. I maintain a private practice in Northampton, Ma. and serve as a private practitioner working with a broad spectrum of clients.
I am a collaborative, solution-focused coach. Through this approach, I provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I also integrate a variety of holistic practices and coaching techniques to offer a highly-personalized program tailored to you. With compassion and understanding, I work with you to helpbuild onyour strengths and attain the personal growth you are committed to achieving. A life-long learner and avid student of transformational and self-development processes, my coaching, teaching and writing have been influenced by Robert Bly, Marion Woodman, Julia Cameron, and Jean Houston to name a few. My former background as a director of a non-profit sexual assault center and as a leader in the field of domestic violence provided me the unique opportunity to establish innovative and life changing programs for survivors, and inspired my commitment to create workshops that help individuals reach their full potential.
I have studied storytelling and writing as a healing modality at Lesley University and explored the transformational power of the human voice with the Roy Hart Theater in Southern France. As a reporter in Southwest Florida, I published numerous feature stories, profiles and news article, conducted writing workshops and deepened my learning by exploring the diverse landscape and people of the region.
In addition my relationship and work with author Nirave Payne, a major figure in fertility work, assisting her with her manuscript on Baby Boomers and the psychology of aging led me to adapt her breakthrough psychological techniques in fertility work to the process of personal transformation. Currently I provide coaching and mentoring as well as leading workshops in creative writing, poetry, griefwork ,finding your life purpose and numerous other topics.
