Personalized life coaching to go beyond.


About me.

I am an avid mountain biker, skier, and trail runner. My connection to the wilderness has shaped and sustained me over the years. For me, getting out there is a necessary component to my happiness. My vision is help you find the thing that sustains and guides you to your happiness. Since I started down this trail, I’ve been helping people find their path for nearly 25 years. My unique life experiences and specialized clinical training inform my work with you. In this role, I will use all of my experience and technical knowledge to help you find the path to the life you want.

Live the life you want.

Perhaps you have it all but remain unhappy. Or maybe you are doing okay, but still feel as if something is missing. You may be asking ‘How did I get here,’ or ‘Is this the life I want?’ Though you’ve tried many things, you are stuck.

Go beyond your roadblocks.

Everyone has barriers to moving forward. Some barriers you can see, some you can’t. In our work together, I will help you explore and remove the barriers that are holding you back.

How it Works

Make the changes necessary to overcome barriers and achieve your definition of success.

Initial Consultation

It begins with a free 20-minute consultation. We’ll use this time to get to know each other, decide if we’re a good fit, and discuss what’s got you stuck.

Coaching Sessions

I will meet you where you are – a trailhead, a coffee shop, or even a chairlift. My clients tend to gravitate to wild places. If you prefer, we can do an office visit or a video session. I am flexible and want to provide the best setting for you.

Personalized Map

Together we will identify your unique steps for success. We’ll pinpoint where you are now, where you want to be tomorrow, and ways to get you there.

I can help get you there.

Starting out as a wilderness therapist for at-risk youth in the mid-nineties, I discovered my true passion for helping others. Following this passion, I sought advanced training, obtaining a master’s degree and later a doctorate degree (Ph.D.) in clinical psychology. Overall, I have been helping people find their path for nearly 25 years. My unique life experience and specialized clinical training strongly qualify me to be your life coach. In this role, I will use all of my experience and technical knowledge to help you find the path to the life you want.

Barriers stand in your way toward progress.

Walking a path that aligns with your personal values can be hard. Barriers present themselves in a multitude of ways. For example doubt: if you doubt that you can be different than you are now, that is a barrier. Other obstacles on your path may include low motivation, lack of ideas, poor support, and on, and on.

Outside of you, you will find resistance in the status quo. Your environment, your friends, or your family will push back when you begin to change. Change is hard, but it is easier if you recognize and plan for the inevitable barriers.

You have value, you just can’t find your way.

Life hasn’t turned out the way you thought it would. Perhaps you feel stuck and are going through the motions. You may even be lost. Whatever the cause, you are not satisfied. Even your achievements and the things you wanted don’t bring you happiness.

Maybe you jump from one thing to the next. You may know where you want to be, but for some reason you can’t get there. You are trying to find yourself. You need ideas. You need some guidance.

Values are fundamental beliefs about the world.

People can seek happiness in a moment to moment fashion, doing what feels good. But happiness is transient and a poor measure of what makes a person whole. Doing things just because they feel good doesn’t lead to ultimate satisfaction or deep contentment.

Only when you identify what matters most and align your life with these values will you experience lasting change. Until you identify and then commit to live by your core values, you will always feel something is missing.
