My Background


My Coaching is informed by my life long study of the human experience. My perspective is rooted in the fact that there is a universal drive to live a life full of meaning and connection and that each person has a passion they long to share with the world.  I have witnessed this in my cultural studies and in my travels to  India, Spain, Guatemala,and Nepal. So much learning and perspective opens up when we are in unfamiliar territory. I have come to value Fierce Courage in myself and invite it in my clients. I have worked for 23 years as a Licensed Massage Therapist, and 11 years as a teacher at the Finger Lakes School of Massage. I also taught Kundalini yoga for several years.


My coaching expertise is in allowing a space for the wisdom and experience of the body to be heard. I have seen first hand the correlation of the body and mind and am wary of our western cultural context that seems to only value the intellect. My approach is holistic and grounded in the fact that you are naturally creative, resourceful and whole. As a skilled coactive coach I partner with you to create a space that allows you to tap into your own resourcefulness.

In addition to my professional endeavors I am a huge fan of music,  I have a 10 year old daughter who keeps me feeling young, and maintain a yoga practice.  I really cherish the pleasures of being human- a good cup of coffee, a cashmere sweater, the smell of lavender-while also embracing our divine nature that transcends the reality we perceive.
