      Coach, Physical Therapist, Owner: Partnering with Clients for Personal Development

      In my roles as coach, physical therapist, owner, and manager, I enjoy the privilege of working with individuals and groups seeking better understanding of their efficiency, communication, and motivation while providing nuanced encouragement and exploration.

      You: are surrounded by the technical and financial experts you need and are looking for clarity about what to do next. My coaching services can facilitate your achievement of that clarity and focus for confidently moving forward.

      Through education and experience with a variety of clients, I understand and can "speak the languages” of: conventional medicine, functional and molecular medicine, family systems, object relations, financial investment vehicles, interpersonal relations, meditation, three metaphysical systems, macrobiotic cooking, osteopathy and craniosacral treatment, Feng Shui, yoga, various spiritual practices, and other approaches.

      Before establishing and running my cash therapy practice for 17 years, I served as a physical therapy contractor or employee in adult and pediatric settings, from preschools, homes, and school corporations to large medical center teaching hospitals for adults and non-pediatric specialty clinics.

      In research and management roles, I've initiated and nurtured productive relationships between departments and organizations within a large private medical campus.

      Private therapy clients have included triathletes, physicians, business owners, emergency professionals, professors, domestic CEOs, educational administrators, executives, and attorneys, plus many children.

      As a health care provider at ease in multiple settings, I accept people just as they are and as a result, hear delicate spoken and unspoken concerns of clients and colleagues, and I ask the right questions for revealing solutions, developing confidence, and much more.

      Since being among the first 40 people nationwide to earn a rigorous healing certification in 2013, I’ve been invited to create and teach an undergraduate course “Biomechanics of Sport and Exercise”, completed two more full-length courses in seminary (2017 -18), earned two coaching certifications (2020), and published a collection of poetry (2020) and several blog articles.

      When you are ready to explore building a brighter future for yourself, please write to me to schedule your complimentary no-obligation consultation at
