How I Work

  • We begin with a 20-minute complimentary call by phone or ZOOM
  • We plan a time to meet in person or ZOOM to do a Discovery Session. During that time, I learn about your needs as well as the strengths and challenges you are facing.
  • I present a proposal that is designed and customized to meet your needs.
  • We create a way to work in person or virtually to achieve your vision and goals. This can be in the form of hourly sessions,  intensives or retreats.
  • We meet with frequent check-ins and follow up to insure progress, trouble shoot set backs, reset and recharge during the change and transformational process.

My Purpose

I believe that the best investment we can make throughout our lives is building quality relationships at home and in the workplace. My purpose is to equip clients by increasing understanding, caring, empathy, and skill for greater connection, communication, fulfillment, love, and vitality.

 “Let us swing wide all the doors and windows of our hearts on the rusty hinges, so we may learn how to open in love. Let us see the light in the other and honor it so we may lift one another on our shoulders and carry each other along. Let holiness move in us so we may pay attention to its small voice and give ourselves fully with both hands.” –Dawna Markova
