Do you long for a more meaningful life where your relationships are positive and powerfully connecting, but you just don’t know how? You are not alone.

Having healthy relationships is the number one determinant of happiness and life satisfaction and yet most of us don’t have the knowledge or experience to develop or sustain them. Relationships are the medium through which we live and breathe and have our being. When they go well- we experience happiness, contentment and productivity.

When they are in distress- our world falls apart. Whether that is between parent and child, spouse to spouse, co-worker to boss, or neighbor to neighbor. Becoming aware of your emotional needs and desires and learning to communicate that to others is the essence of emotional intelligence.

Science is now proving what we have intuitively known all along- that emotional intelligence is the key to healthy, productive , resilient and happy people.

And the good news is that emotional intelligence can be learned. The ability to identify and regulate our feelings, the ability to communicate our needs and desires in non-defensive methods, the flexibility and the resilience to learn new strategies for coping with change and stress – these are all skills that can be learned and developed.

With tested techniques and practice- you can learn the language your partner’s, family member’s and co-worker’s are speaking so you can decipher what it is they are trying to tell you. And more importantly you can learn to get to the heart of what is important in your own voice so you can communicate your truth in ways that will create the connection, understanding and meaningful relationships you are longing for….. I can show you how.

It is my passion to walk alongside individuals, couples, families and teams as they navigate the journey of living, working with, and loving each other well.

I was where you are – alone, discouraged in pain. Through diving deep and walking through my own journey of growth I discovered a passion for helping others. I’ve walked that path through 20 years of learning, growing and expanding. It is my privilege to walk that journey with you.

Transforming Lives one relationship at a time.

Beyond Life’s Mid-Point to a Life of Significance

I’m feeling grateful for my age.

Not the creaky knees and grey hair part… but the wisdom part.

Where I’ve gained the necessary perspective that life is a journey full of both heart-breaking sadness and exquisite joy.

And the awareness that the parts that break your heart are the very essence of what brings you the most joy.

It hasn’t always been easy. And it’s tempting to think of things as done and winding down.

When it’s really just beginning for all of us in this time in our lives.
