    About Me


    I know from my own personal experience, from research, and from my experience as a Change Agent seeing people achieve their dreams, what sets that person apart from all others is their ability to use their mind to their advantage.

    My life’s passion is to provide growth opportunities for people who know they’re capable of more and haven’t quite been able to figure out how to get there.

    You see, I was once there myself. I was a multi-sport athlete starting in middle school, post Title IX.

    I went from an awkward middle school girl just being introduced to this thing called sport, and after a lot of extremely hard work, to eventually earning an athletic scholarship to a Division I school, the University of Washington.

    The first year, I participated in both Women’s basketball and Track & Field. By the end of the first year because of my continued progress and potential, my T&F coach offered me a full ride to focus on preparing for the 1980 Olympics. I set and still hold a freshman record in the High Jump at the UW.

    Long story short, the US boycotted the 1980 Olympics. I didn’t have the support that I needed at the time and retired prematurely from sport before I reached my full potential.

    I later returned, at age 31 with three sons, to complete my bachelor’s degree and finish out NCAA basketball eligibility at a Division II school, University of Alaska Anchorage.

    I truly understand the meaning of PERSERVERANCE!

    I was introduced to Sport Psychology at an Olympic Training Camp where I first learned about managing arousal level and using imagery – a powerful combination.

    My experience as a competitive athlete sparked a passion in me that has become my life work; why I genuinely believe I am on this earth – my Mission is to work with high-achievers who want to shine bright and live with No Regret so they can develop their One Thing to the very fullest possible.

    Along the way, I was fortunate to discover for myself the power of a therapy technique called Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR). I was so amazed by this powerful technique that it became the focus of my graduate project – around the use of EMDR for performance. I eventually became a Certified EMDR practitioner. With a firm understanding of how our nervous system works, I have added other body-based therapeutic techniques, including Brainspotting and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy to my bag of tools.

    Most recently realizing the power and necessity of using mindfulness I have connected with the Mindfulness Coaching School. Since 2008, I have practiced successfully as a licensed psychotherapist. I became interested in performance coaching principles and fundamentals because I recognized the limitations therapy inherently instills coming from a clinical, something is wrong with you place. I came to realize the power of facilitating personal development that is possible through the coaching relationship. In 2018 I started my coach training and certification journey. I am proud to be a member of the International Coaching Federation.

    As a result of both my personal and professional journey at the core of my coaching mission, my vision is to ensure all who desire success in their craft have the confidence, knowledge, intuition and belief necessary to reach their highest level possible allowing their light to shine brightly.

    My passion has led me to excel in the field of Professional Performance Counseling, Coaching and Consultation.
