I love working with people as a coach because it uses all of my professional skills and talents. When I am coaching someone, I offer:
  • The listening skills I have honed during my three decades years as a psychotherapist;

  • The creativity that I bring to my role as a passionate and dedicated teacher of personal growth writing;

  • The focus and determination of a person who has managed to write and publish two successful books while practicing psychotherapy, giving presentations, teaching and classes, and being a wife, stepparent and grandparent.

“Learn from the mistakes of others. You can't live long enough to make them all yourself.”

--Eleanor Roosevelt
“Directors, coaches and editors cannot teach you how to get there. But they can put you on the paths that lead there.”
--Thomas McCormack
"All I'm doing is pointing. You must find it true for yourself."
--The Buddha




  • Do you just want to be writing, painting or creating
    but don’t know how to take the first step?

  • Do you have a project, thesis, dissertation, article
    or book you can’t quite finish writing?

  • Are you having trouble managing your time and
    balancing your work, family and creative life?

  • Do you find yourself procrastinating instead of

  • Is your manuscript buried in a pile or are your
    notes missing in action somewhere in your office?

Then our Coach Approach may be for you! You will work in a practical, focused and co-active (working with you) way to get unstuck, organized and productive.

Because I am both a psychotherapist and a coach, I know how to help when old feelings get in the way. Together we will use both coaching and short-term therapeutic techniques as needed to help you resolve those feelings and get creative again!
