The work I enjoy most involves
learning, connecting with others, and making things better. Since
2002, I have put my talents to use as a Licensed Clinical Social
Worker, providing therapy to clients in a variety of settings.

The last several years I maintained a successful private practice
in St. Louis, Missouri. I loved my office and enjoyed my clients.
I never would have dreamed of closing my practice but in 2014 my
husband's employment necessitated that our family move to Fort
Smith, Arkansas. This surprising change and unexpected life
transition has provided me the opportunity to re-design the way I
While I have an appreciation for
the deep transformative work that can happen in the therapy room,
I most enjoy working with clients who are not in crisis but are
ready to grow and move to the next level. This is why coaching is
a good fit for me. My clients are smart, successful people who are
committed to growing and realize that professional help is an
investment in themselves. They know that a good coach will offer
encouragement and support but will be committed to helping them
improve their life in a specific direction.
I often find that most clients fall
somewhere on a continuum. On one end they might merely need
support and encouragement to stay on track and help correcting
course as they move forward with a goal or change. On the other
end of the continuum are clients who require assistance getting
clear about how they are stuck and need more frequent or focused
help moving forward.
There are many ways I can coach
clients, but the following will give you an idea of my strengths.
Many women I work with want help getting their internal world to
match their successful outer persona. Many men I have worked with
have experienced success at work but feel like a failure at home
or struggle with their interpersonal relationships. Many want help
implementing new ways of thinking and acting in their day to day
life or desire to change a habit or pattern. Some people are
starting a new business or want to improve their leadership skills
at work. Others need help navigating the inevitable changes that
happen in life. I help them understand the chaos that comes with
unexpected change and transition and support them as they navigate
Most of the people I help want to
improve their most important relationships with significant
others, children, other family, friends, and co-workers. I have
coached people through the dating process, engagement period,
throughout the different stages of marriage, and assisted with
moving through divorce. In summary, most folks I work with want to
improve their relationship with themselves, a meaningful person in
their life, or request help with a particular issue or challenge.
I love that my work connects me
with amazing women and men. I enjoy meeting my clients and
learning their unique life story. I feel honored to do the work
that I do and to be a part of my client's life and journey. It
would be my pleasure to be a part of yours.
