Pathway to Personal Harmony Coaching

Are you desiring more calm in your life, 

but don't know where to begin?

What if someone told you there was an easier way to navigate a career,

build your self-esteem and sense of family after divorce or other life transitions, and tap into a peace you didn’t know was possible?

Are you: 

>> wondering where your self-confidence has gone?

>> emotionally shredded after a relationship ending?

>> feeling disempowered, missing your creative spark?

>> struggling to find yourself after life transitions?

>> attempting to rebuild your community and sense of family?

I hear you, because I was exactly where you were over 10 years ago.

When I divorced, I was an instructor, uncertain of how to find success in academia much less my career in general, feeling lost as my existing family and friend circle crumbled, and overwhelmed with how to create a more peaceful life for myself and two kids, aged 12 and 9 at the time.


Issues I’ve dealt with include anxiety, depression, anorexia and the hard cycle of enabling alcoholic, addictive behaviors of others.  


Not yet 40, I also saw my mother defeated by ovarian cancer the month before a judge finalized my divorce. There was the added punch in the gut that all of this took place in a small, rural town with nowhere to hide. Ouch!

Today, I’m a much different person, more confident and successful in my academic career; enriched by my new sense of family, friendship and community; and more centered in an environment that has allowed me to raise my children to become emotionally intelligent humans. 

You could take years to figure it out on your own, but there’s an easier way – through working with me, you’ll learn how to . . .
