About me

REMEMBER .."If nothing changes..NOTHING changes!".......I describe myself as a Personal Coach, helping individuals to develop positive mindsets and stop settling and surviving but instead start creating and thriving in their life.  I coach busy (and not so busy) individuals to live creatively from the inside - out! ..........


I am here to listen...Not to work miracles

I am here to help you discover what you are feeling...Not to make things go away

I am here to help you identify your options...Not to decide what you should do

I am here to discuss steps with you...Not to take the steps for you

I am here to help you discover your own strength...Not to rescue you and leave you still vulnerable

I am here to help you discover that you can help yourself...Not to take responsibility for you

I am here to help you choose..Not to make it unnecessary for you to make difficult choices

I am here to provide support for your change!
