Helping others is one of my core values. I pursue opportunities to connect with people, meet them where they are and highlight their strengths, as they navigate a path to achieving their goals. Health and Wellness Coaching resonates with me for many reasons - reaching out to clients from a strength-based approach, focusing on "what can be" in the near and distant future and realizing how we all can continue to grow, learn and deepen our understanding of who we are and what we need. We just need someone on the journey with us sometimes to keep us focused, excited and encouraging of our efforts.
Over the past 20 years, I have been honored to work with women, men, children, teens, couples and families as they moved towards healing and wholeness. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), Certified Employee Assistance Professional (CEAP) and Certified Health Coach (CHC). My license and certifications have allowed me to work in a wide variety of settings (schools, non-profits, government agencies, healthcare organizations, hospitals and private practice). Whether it is working one-on-one with clients, as part of a small group or presenting to professionals, I welcome opportunities to engage people in exploring what is important to them.
Working hard to focus on my own dreams led me to opening my private practice as a Health and Wellness Coach. I am always so excited to work with clients seeking their own "what's next?" I am a life-long learner and continually seek opportunities to enhance my knowledge, experiences and strengths. I also make it a priority to nurture myself so that I can more fully give of my heart, mind and spirit in both my personal and professional lives. I am delighted to contribute to the wellness of our community through my work.
I am originally from Maryland, where I grew up and attended undergraduate and graduate school. Maryland is also where my husband and I met and were married. Ready for a change, we moved to North Carolina in 2006. We enjoy raising our young son here and love calling Greensboro "home".
I also love being outdoors and taking pictures. So, the pictures on my website are of some of my favorite places and spaces.
