My journey to coaching began with my own experience of intense, debilitating professional and personal burnout. At the time I felt drained and depleted. I felt like I never had enough time to accomplish everything and my relationships suffered as a result. I remember feeling like everyone else had it all together and I was just a total fraud. It was exhausting.
My personal breakthrough came when I hired my first coach. For the first time in a long time, I felt seen and heard and validated. Through that coaching experience, I was able to heal from decades-old trauma and finally step fully into my own power. The coaching relationship gave me the permission I needed to stand unapologetically inside my own story and to finally take control of my life.
Because of my own experiences, I truly understand what it’s like to be paralyzed by stress and anxiety and stuck on a hamster wheel of self-sabotage. I’ve leveraged my professional expertise to make sure that no one else ever has to stumble around in the dark trying to find their way. I’m committed to sharing shortcut strategies that empower my clients to get unstuck and start making meaningful progress in the direction of their dreams. My background as a Mental Health Therapist and Consultant, NLP-trained coach, and certified Ho'opono'pono Practitioner means that my professional education and lived experiences come together in my work in a powerful way to create massive positive, lasting change and transformation.

As a licensed clinical social worker, I am bound by the National Association of Social Worker's Code of Ethics in all of my professional relationships. As such, I am not at liberty to share anything you have shared with me without your explicit permission.
All appointments should be kept as scheduled to maintain consistency in the coaching process. If you do have to reschedule an appointment, please do so as soon as possible so that your appointment time may be offered to another client. Your full session fee will be forfeited for missed appointments and late cancellations without 24-hour notice.
Therapy focuses on mental health and understanding and healing from past experiences while coaching focuses on setting and achieving goals in a specific area.
One of the big distinctions between coaching and therapy is the professional credentials required. There are no standard requirements to be a coach. To be a therapist, a master's degree and professional licensure is required. Lucky for you, I have both in addition to ongoing continuing education.
Coaching clients can be anywhere in the world as long as our schedules can align. Therapy clients must reside in Washington State due to licensure requirements.
Nope. In a coaching relationship, each party has specific responsibilities. It is my responsibility to show up, fully present and engaged for our sessions and to utilize the full breadth of my skills and knowledge to support you. It's your responsibility to take action steps in your own life to create meaningful, lasting change.
I can, however, guarantee that you will get my professional A-game and that if you choose to apply what we discuss to your life consistently, you will see positive changes. Ultimately, though, it's my job to be the guide and the coach and the rest is up to you.
