If you need accountability or help getting un-stuck, working with a kick-ass coach is a game-changer. Whether you're looking for a little help or a lot, you're in the right place. I have a proven track record and can help you get the breakthrough you're longing for.
Let’s get real. Sometimes you need someone to listen. And I mean listen without interrupting you, without judging you, and without making fun of you for wanting to dream big. If you want a coach to help you smash the glass ceiling then you've met your match.
The only limits we have are the ones we place on ourselves or allow others to place on us.
I'll help you go further faster. Who doesn't want to achieve their results faster? Why wait for the good stuff? Listen, when you're in the jar you can't read our own label. Sometimes you need an uninterrupted "meeting" or dedicated block of time to figure things out and regularly work on you, your life, your goals. I provide a safe sounding board for you. I'll share insights into what's preventing you from manifesting what you REALLY want. I will give you the accountability you need, without judgment.
How would it feel to have uninterrupted quality time with yourself where you get the expertise of someone who can guide you through your thinking process to get the clarity you need to take EFFECTIVE action? Running east looking for a sunset is not EFFECTIVE action. Catch my drift?
We’ll work together to figure out exactly what you want and develop a blueprint to get there. You CAN overcome what’s standing in your way and achieve happiness & fulfillment, for real. No more being stuck. It's time to jump back in the driver’s seat and take control of your life. Stuff the excuses in an old shoe box where they belong. And make it the box with an old ugly pair of shoes in it - birth control shoes as I like to call them.
‘Cause living your authentic life is sexy!
Do you find yourself thinking thoughts like...
• I wonder if I'm worthy of success.
• Why do I always sabotage myself?
• If only I could do this or have that... Then I'd be happy.
• I doubt myself and my ability to do this thing I want to do.
• I sometimes feel like I'm not enough.
• Will I be truly loved? I mean loved for exactly who I am and want to be.
If you answered yes to any of those...you are not alone. AND...guess what? You're totally normal. These are common questions and fears people deal with. You can get past those nagging fears and create the life of your dreams.
What if you were able to squash those limiting beliefs and patterns that were holding you back? What if you were able to create a blueprint that you could effectively execute on and achieve your desires right here, right NOW! I will walk you through the process, hold you accountable while working through it. All those potholes in the road? No worries - I got your back. You're not blowing a tire on my watch.
I will support you and encourage you. I know what you need is already inside you. As your coach I'm going to utilize your strengths and help you drive from there, even if you don't know what those are...yet.
I know how frustrating it is to want something so bad you can taste it and not know how to get it.
Could it be possible you're just asking the wrong questions? What if it's not about the "how" and it's really about the "who?"
It's time to break through and break away from the pack!
I’m a Certified Strategic Intervention Life Coach through the Robbins-Madanes Training Center, a Certified Life Coach through the International Coach Academy, and contributing author to two anthologies: Smart Women Embrace Transitions: How to Lean Into Change with Your Body, Mind and The Best Life: The Key to Living - Stop Endless Dieting and Start Living Again with a New Clarity. I am the Founder of the Healthy Lifestyle Institute and developed the Healthy Lifestyle Academy. blah blah blah. Yes, I can help you. I'll put details about Strategic Intervention coaching at the bottom of this page for those of you who like that stuff.
I have mastered the methodologies of the world's top coaches. I have studied and trained with the greatest coaches and mentors the coaching industry has to offer. I've helped hundreds of clients who were ready to invest and do the work to transform and achieve heights they once thought impossible.
I can help you because I’ve been there. Whatever it is you want, whatever it is that will give you the fulfillment you’re looking for, I understand the struggle, the need to identify it and go after it. I get it because I’ve lived it my whole life. I know how that want will bring you to tears at times. I understand how it can be an all-consuming focus. An obsession. I have felt the exasperation and the hopelessness that comes from feeling like you’re not all you can be. I’ve experienced the discontent from feeling like you're falling short, like you're leaving something on the table. And I’ve learned how to successfully navigate those stormy waters and come out better, stronger, and more buoyant so I can not only accomplish that goal, but be ready for the next challenge as well. I can help you do the same.
I’ve struggled in several areas of my life, including my weight. I specialize in health & fitness because that’s my passion and because I believe it's the foundation that supports you while achieving your other life goals. It's hard to be a trail-blazer if you don't feel like getting off the couch. But as they say in coaching school: no matter your specialty, it's all life coaching after the first few sessions.

My first and constant love is to achievement. To growth. To learning and improving. In any and all areas. It is what has always driven me.
Early on in my professional career I wanted to excel and I had questions. Lots of questions. And it seemed no one around me could answer them. At least not to my satisfaction. So I became an avid reader. I bought (and yes, read) book after book after book. My friends would tease me about my business/self-improvement book-reading habits. Even now they’ll comment about how we’d be by the pool hanging out and they’d be reading trashy novels and I’d have some self-help book in my hand. They’d ask “Do you ever read for fun?” “Um…this is fun to me” was my answer.
Those habits started me on a journey of learning. Learning how to be better, how to improve in many areas. There came a time when I was still learning by reading but it seemed to be a lot of theory and I wasn’t always sure how to apply it to me or what I was working on at the time. I felt like I was missing a piece of the puzzle. There came a time when I needed one on one help. I needed an expert.
My first foray into getting that help was with the Steven Covey organization going through their Mastering the 7 Habits course with one of their coaches. Best. Investment. Ever. I was hooked. Wow. What a difference it made to set aside a block of time each week or so to talk to a coach. Just me and her. And talk about what I’d learned and how to apply it to me. I was amazed at how I would think I understood something and she would push me to dive deeper and “get it” at a whole other level. I knew I wanted to become a coach.
Since then I have had many coaches and mentors. I’ve learned something valuable from them all. And I want to pass it forward. That is my purpose. It’s what I was born to do. I know it’s important to do it in a way that feels amazing to the client. It’s important to listen, and not assume anything. It’s important to offer accountability, but without judgement.
It will pay dividends.

Pardon the somewhat technical jargon here.
Strategic Intervention (also known as SI) takes the most practical and effective forms of strategic action and communication from a variety of disciplines: Ericksonian therapy, strategic family therapy, Human Needs Psychology, organizational psychology, neurolinguistics, psychology of influence, strategic studies, traditions of diplomacy and negotiation, and others.
Strategic Intervention Coaching is a practical method for taking action in a strategic way to help you get things done while also seeing to it that human needs (Certainty, Variety, Significance, Love & Connection, Growth, Contribution) are fulfilled and elevated.
What distinguishes SI from other strategic studies is the belief that certain holistic solutions “snap into place” when more people’s needs are met, expressed, and elevated. Why? Because SI solutions are based on the principle of growth and contribution. Any change, when it is reinforced by growth and contribution, not only “sticks,” but it goes on to positively influence hundreds of other people.
How does all of that relate to you?
You don't live in a vacuum. You can't make decisions and excel in life without considering the effects the changes you make have on those around you and gaining their support. As a coach, I can coach my client but if that client goes back into a home, work or community environment that is non-supportive without addressing the relationships, then the old habits will return…quickly.
Strategic Intervention solutions actually deliver more benefit for less effort.
The tradition of Strategic Intervention (called Human Needs Psychology or HNP) originates with the understanding of the power of meaning to shape all aspects of a human being’s life. SI founders Tony Robbins and Chloe Madanes have both been powerfully influenced by the great insights and works of Victor Frankl and Milton Erickson’s creative breakthroughs in human intervention.
SI is also grounded in the work of the Gregory Bateson group at the Mental Research Institute, which in the late 1950′s originated the new paradigm of interactional and systemic studies, which became a watershed in the development of disciplines such as game theory, cybernetics, neurolinguistics, organizational psychology, management psychology, and dozens of other systemic disciplines.
Cloe Madanes, who has been associated with SI for four decades, is now the senior member of this tradition. Cloe has recognized Anthony Robbins as one of its most highly skilled thinkers and practitioners of SI. Together, they formed the Robbins - Madanes Training Center (RMT Center).
The goal of Strategic Intervention is to integrate the core insights of these traditions into a method of practical strategic action. SI encompasses strategies that span from the belief systems and emotional patterns within an individual, to individual relationships, to group dynamics, to organizational and cultural interventions. A trained SI coach navigates these different arenas with ease.
Whew! That’s a lot of technical stuff but somebody just had to ask. 😉
