I am a ready to be your Life Coach, Hypnotherapist and Wisdom Guide. As a certified Life Coach, Heart Centered & 5 Path Hypnotherapist, 7th Path Self-Hypnosis, Sage-ing Leader, Core Value Index, and Reiki Practitioner I place high value in on the relationship we will build together. Most importantly, I look forward to being your guide and confidant.
Since 2006, I have assisted people in Portland/Beaverton Oregon, as well as internationally (Canada, Central America, Japan…and more!). I am happy to say that my coaching & hypnosis has received great praise. My greatest joy, however, is the gift of a client’s transformation, empowerment and renewed confidence. It’s a WOW!
Boomer Change Agent
My passion is to assist you in transforming your life. You know that feeling when things just don’t feel right and you know a change is necessary? That’s where coaching can be an amazing asset in helping you release limited thinking and beliefs and instead discover a life of endless possibilities. Being a Boomer who grew up with The Beatles, the Cold War, JFK, Beatniks and Hippies, I can relate to my clients and enjoy meaningful relationships with them.

Focused On YOU!
Our coaching or hypnosis sessions are a spiritual conversation which are focused on you and your success. By taking myself out of the equation, it allows me to be a more efficient coach, a more supportive listening ear, and invites in a higher spirit into our conversation. This helps us to rise above the mundane and move into a deeper, more healing session.
As a lifelong learner, it is no surprise that I have two Master Degrees – one in Education and the other in Interdisciplinary Studies with a focus in gerontology. I love the state of being open and ready to learn something new. I am constantly updating my skills so that I can be a better coach and/or hypnotherapist for you.
I’ve been in business for myself since 2006 and I’ve noticed that we solopreneurs have a deep appreciation for how inner work has a transformational effect on the outer experience of our business. That’s why I guide women solopreneurs on how to move forward with clarity and courage so they can consistently make decisions about their business (and life) from a place of integrity, intuition and inner wisdom.
Been Around the Block
Having gone around the block a few times, I have gained many life experiences; one being that the sun will still rise tomorrow – no matter what my “major” issue might be – the sun is still gonna rise. Life has taken me down many roads including Southern California, Washington State, 5 years in El Salvador, and back to the United States to Oregon. Never being simple, life has included many tragedies and heartbreak – I have had the opportunity to learn the benefit of bending my knees to the floor. Nearly dying several times I have come to the belief that I must not be fully cooked yet as God keeps sending me back for more life education. Because of this, life is more precious to me. I realize that today is important, and not to waste it with anger, guilt, pride, fear and all those other “ego driven” thoughts. These experiences have made me a better, more understanding, and more dedicated coach and better able to guide my clients to not just survive, but to thrive.
I believe in volunteering in my community and currently serve as secretary on both the Senior Citizen Advisory Committee and on the County Disabled Services Advisory Council. I also am a part of Dress for Success coaching women in ways to change their lives and to attain their dreams and with Mercy Corps, mentoring solopreneurs toward success.

I have a teenage granddaughter whom I love spending time with. Together we enjoy going to plays, movies and outings. I enjoy spending time with my friends and family. At home, you can almost always find me in my natural form of meditation – knitting needles in my hand. I also enjoy Tai Chi and exercising as well as eating healthy natural foods.
