About me

As a child I was depressed and anxious and struggled with ADHD. I was quiet and afraid of doing the wrong thing. I worked hard to make sure everyone liked me and I didn't know how to stand up for myself. It wasn't until my life started to fall apart in 2005 that I finally sought help. Even though I WAS a therapist, I had never gone to see a therapist myself. I saw a therapist through my insurance company. It didn't even matter that the therapist I saw was new and didn't know what to say to this woman that was streaming tears and trying to speak through sobs. I finally had someone that was listening to me. That was there just for me. The act of seeking help was a huge step for me, and after that I decided to make some changes. I became a sponge for self-help books and made some major changes in how I related to my own clients.
I want you to know that you don't have to wait until you are clinically depressed to see someone who will focus on you! Now is the time! You are worth it. Working with me you will feel listened to, valued, you will get clear on what you need and want in life and we will create a solid plan to make your dreams come true!   more...

Coaching with me


My main focus in coaching is to first help you get clear on what you want. When we know exactly what it is we want, it is easy to figure out what to do next.

Next I help you map out a path to success. We will come up with a specific, measurable outcome and we will map out the short-term steps that you need to take in order to get there. We will focus on small, attainable tasks to help you avoid overwhelm.

My clients have changed careers, gotten out of bad relationships, improved their parenting skills and gotten on the path to healthy eating and exercise.


I am a big fan of using humor in my coaching, but this does not mean I don't take you and your life seriously. I have struggled with depression, anxiety and ADHD and know what it feels like to be dismissed or given quick fix advice. I know that the feelings of overwhelm, confusion and frustration are very real, even if it looks like from the outside, that you've gotten everything together.

That being said, coaching can and should be super fun! You will learn a ton about yourself and what you want in life and the joy that you will get from getting on a clear path is priceless. That's not to say it won't be hard. You will want it bad enough that the hard parts won't feel nearly as overwhelming as they did before.

We'll break everything up into small, attainable goals with timelines. You will be making positive changes in the blink of an eye.

In fact, I know that just making that first call will set off an avalanche of changes.


Please feel free to visit my shop to see the details of my offerings.


I offer one to one private coaching on the phone or in person (Kailua, Hawaii only). Private coaching will begin as one hour sessions, but as you get rocking on your goals we will only need to be on the phone for a half hour at the most. I am available by phone, email and skype between sessions.
Whether you have a specific goal you are working on or have no idea what the hell you want to do next, this is the fastest way to get you moving.


I can meet via Skype or Google Hangout. I love being able to see your face instead of just a phone call.

Short courses or group coaching

I can see up to a group of 6 clients at a time via google hangout. This is an awesome way to stay motivated and is more cost-effective than working one to one. If you need an accountability buddy, this is a great way to meet or team up with like minded individuals. Groups are carefully put together, so once you sign up we will find a great group to match you up with.
