Biography

Bio

I am an integrative coach based in Denver, Colorado and see clients as well in Zürich, Switzerland.
A true baby boomer in my heart and mind, I believe everyone has the ability to challenge the status quo, cultivate positive change and to thrive as individuals as we build a flourishing society.
In 1996, I packed up three young children from our 20-acre Vermont homestead and embarked on what turned out to be a 21-year international adventure. We explored, we traveled and we embraced cultures.
In addition to my private integrative coaching practice, I worked as a coach, teacher, and counselor at international schools in Spain, Jordan, Pakistan, and Switzerland with frequent travels to Japan and Serbia. After 16 years living in Zürich, Switzerland, I landed in Denver, Colorado in 2018 and continue to offer private coaching.
My work with clients includes a broad spectrum of topics such as positive social relationships, cross-cultural transitions, repatriation and transitioning to new settings. My coaching is grounded in modern neuroscience and positive psychology using a mindfulness-based, ontological, integrative, heart-centered approach. We focus on well-being through positive emotion, engagement, meaning, optimism, resilience, and positive relationships.
I am a Professional Certified Coach with the International Coach Federation and have advanced coach training with inviteChange in Washington. I am a graduate of the Newfield Network ICF Accredited Coach Training Program in Boulder, Colorado and have had Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Training (MBSR) in Zürich, Switzerland. I hold a Masters of Education degree from the University of Vermont. Currently, I am enrolled in a Positive Psychology Coaching Certification at the Wholebeing Insitute.
I am available for in-person sessions in Denver, Colorado and various times throughout the year in Zürich, Switzerland. Sessions with clients are also available virtually or by phone.
