Member, International Coaching Federation

          I have developed Creative Pathways to be able to offer a full therapeutic coaching service to you – one-on-one, as a couple, or in groups.  My training and experience bring together a unique combination of strategic and creative skills that allow me to view your individual situation from a comprehensive, wholistic perspective – exploring work, personal, and relationship factors that interact and affect each other.

          What I have learned from my therapy training and my own personal experience in navigating change and transitions is that it is necessary to find ways to stop, breathe, and be connected to the present moment before we can step back and explore new possibilities and perspectives. 

          I have developed strategies and exercises from positive psychology, mindfulness practice, cognitive behavioral therapy, strategic planning, and gestalt psychology, to guide you.  In addition, my background in the creative arts gives me the skills to use more visual, sensory, and playful approaches to helping you move forward.

Integrating professional coaching, executive management experience, and therapeutic training to help you focus on:
  • Transforming your life through personal empowerment

  • Refining your life goals, values, and purpose

  • Creating work / relationship / life balance

  • Planning and navigating successful transitions

  • Developing career, executive, and leadership skills

  • Understanding the necessity of "Rewiring when Retiring"
