I’m in Private Practice as an ACC certified coach with the ICF.  I began my own leadership coaching business after having practiced as a licensed therapist for over 20 years. I truly enjoy coaching pastors, their families and their teams to navigate the often-rocky waters of leadership with wisdom, balance and joy.
