I am a certified Advanced Professional Life Coach with 20+ years of experience in counseling, coaching and pastoral care.
From as far back as I can remember I have enjoyed people. Every kind of individual you can name, I find fascinating! I just appreciate the ways God made each person with unique gifts, talents, personality types and struggles.
To that belief, I love to help people discover their distinct desires, purpose, and destiny. Along with those discoveries, we can also start to identify what may be barriers to living the abundant life Christ died to give us. I have a passion for helping individuals develop spiritually by examining and living the spiritual disciplines. I have learned through victory and failure; how important these are to living a life that brings glory to the one who gave us life.
I hold true to my core values of peace, reconciliation and love towards everyone whatever their circumstance, beliefs, struggle or tragedy. My heart is that through your own discovery and journey you will start to be more mindful of all that God has deposited into you. You’ll feel more empowered to live confidently in your part of that journey!
Experience & Training
I have been a perpetual learner … never ceasing to increase my head-to-heart knowledge of God. I’ve been training in counseling and life coaching since the early 90’s. My training & certifications are through the American Association of Christian Counselors and ADR Mediation for family mediation. I have been blessed to have many mentors in my life whom have poured hours of wisdom and training into me. I was given the honor to walk out a calling God had for me of Pastoring hundreds of people over several years — each a blessing to me! This brought further purpose and wisdom to my life for this new season of Life Coaching & Mediation Services.
I have been married to my husband Steve for 27 years. I call him the “do anything” guy as God has blessed him with many talents. We have 3 grown, amazing, adult kids and 3 grandchildren. We live in the Dallas Fort Worth area.
I strongly believe in reaching out for healthy help if we are at a place where we need a new perspective, we feel stuck or we are hindered in growth for any reason. There is nothing like hearing God for ourselves, but there are also those who God gifted to counsel or facilitate hearing & healing. My prayer is that you might find just the right person to trust in your journey. I’d love it if you’d give me a call to look at ways that I can help along the way. If you are need of counseling, I will make an appropriate referral for your needs.
