This website and my work is built with gratitude for those who have gone before us preparing the way for us (humanity) to become more conscious and compassionate and meditative. I am particularly grateful to Eckhart Tolle for his wisdom, Sadhguru for he brings to the world, Marilyn Ferguson for instilling hope, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin for his foresight, Pema Chodrin for teaching me about fear, those Poets who wrote about that which is transcendent…and to all the Transcenders (the early “scouts of humanity” who far exceeded the traditional criteria for psychological health, whose lives were frequented by peak experiences). I am also deeply grateful for the treasure of experiencing other cultures through travel and friendship.
As a certified life coach, it has been almost 2 decades since I began working with individuals in Stillwater, MN. Much has happened since then. I have changed a lot personally, my daughters have grown up, and my coaching has evolved.
My certifications are through CPCC (Co-Active Training Institute, San Rafael, CA), and Coaching with the Enneagram through The Enneagram in Business. I earned a MA from Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadina, CA., and a BS from University of Texas, Austin.
I am a life-long learner and a spiritual* person
For those who are interested, here are a few ways I enjoy spending my life: hanging with family, being in nature, ballroom and tap dancing, playing pickleball, reading and writing, eating mindfully, being with clients, relaxing at home, meditating early in the morning, contributing what I can wherever I can, and doing all the little things that I do each day.
In 2010, I added a 2nd business (as a wedding officiant) and moved my office to Grand Ave in St Paul. Whether I am calling forth an individual’s wisdom in a coaching session or evoking meaningful thoughts in a venue full of wedding guests, life is full of synchronicities and fun and I am grateful for the experiences.
* SPIRITUALITY is developed through direct experience of that which is beyond words.
It nourishes us at a deep level and is essential to well-being.
Do you believe that you could take your life seriously enough to make a difference as our little planet hurls through space while at the same time being a little piece of blissful life?
If so, then I am the coach for you… because I believe it and see it and experience it.
Come join in the transformation of humanity!(There are no passengers on planet earth. We must all contribute what we can.) My wish is that you make space for something wonder-full to happen in your life that you perhaps haven’t even dreamed of!
"There are those who dream the dream that others declare futile.There are those who dream the hour which is not yet on earth ...And then it comes."
