Relationship is at the core of everything I do, personally and professionally, and where I stumble, learn, grow and heal the most.
For 25 years I have combined my curiosity for health, transformation, empowerment, and connection with my passion for adventure, learning, teaching, and serving.
My unique professional path includes a base in traditional rehabilitative therapies, bodywork, yoga, fitness and outdoor recreation.
But nothing I do would be possible without the relationships I have with others.
When my life didn't turn out like the fantasy I was sold (and bought), I was hurt, angry, scared and ashamed. I blamed my partner and I blamed myself. I assumed I had chosen the wrong person (0ver and over), and that there was something deeply wrong with me and that happily ever after was waiting for me with someone new—or not at all.
My need for connection and to make sense of where I had “gone wrong” led me to look at myself and the way I was habitually relating to everyone in my life. I was the common denominator and this was my call to level up and do things differently.
I’ve been married, divorced, on the dating scene and starting again in middle age. I’m a mother, daughter, partner, friend and colleague. Investing in myself to study, learn, and practice solid relational skills has been the latest step in my ongoing path to live and love as well as I can.
In May of 2019, I completed a two year deep dive into the psychology of intimate relationships and professional certification for Relationship Coaching at The Relationship School ®. As a result of my journey, I witnessed every relationship—including and most importantly the way I relate to myself—transform.
True to my nature, I am called to take what I have learned and deepen it by sharing it with others. I look forward to practicing with you, and sharing my experience as we connect over relationships.
