qualifications

What qualifies me to do what I do? It's a combination of training and experience.

ordained

I was ordained in 2015 as an Interfaith New Thought Minister by Emerson Theological Institute. I interned at the Unity Christ Center in Eau Claire, WI.

writing

I have been writing professionally for a long time - websites, training programs, workshops - you name it. Writing my own books, however, has been a recent development. Or should I say, publishing them. I've been writing them and hoarding them in my computer for decades.

speaking

I've been speaking in front of groups since I was 17 years old. With a background as diverse as mine, it's no wonder that I've taught marine biology on closed circuit television and given Sunday talks at church. I've lead small groups in person and very large groups virtually.

coaching

A coach is somebody who helps you organize your thoughts and develop a plan of action to make those thoughts manifest more clearly in your life.

Coaches are different than therapists in that they're less interested in why you do something than helping you see clearly how that something is impacting your current life - and what are you going to do about it.

Coaching is different than teaching in the belief that I do not have the answers to your life - you do. I do use a number of education tools - not to "teach" per se but more to open our eyes to the dreams attempting to express themselves through you right here and right now.

A Spiritual Life Coach is a bit different that other life coaches in that I believe your crisis - whatever it may be is going to have a strong spiritual component.
