Career

 

I’m in Private Practice as an ACC certified coach with the ICF.  I began my own life & leadership coaching business after having practiced as a licensed therapist for over 20 years. The Lord has been moving my focus over the last several years to working with those in Christian Leadership. I truly enjoy coaching pastors, their families and their teams to live more balanced and healthy lives.
