About Me

Do you fear making mistakes as a leader or taking on assignments for which you feel under-qualified?
Are you afraid that, at any minute, you could lose it all, sabotage your career, & people will see that you're not "leadership material"?
If so, I've got you covered! I provide cutting edge leadership development from the inside out. More than just leadership skill sets... mindsets too. Beyond information, to transformation. I help women leaders break through their glass ceiling with confidence, courage, assertiveness, and executive presence. If you want a strictly confidential, anonymous, behind-the-scenes silent partner, you're in the right place.

I  have been studying and practicing leadership coaching, leadership development, work-life balance, organizational development/psychology, and recovery from addictions for 30 years. After completing a Bachelor's degree in Human Development/Psychology and a Master's degree in Educational Psychology, I furthered my studies with a college certificate in Corporate Consulting & Coaching focused on Industrial/Organizational Psychology, Quality of Work life, Employee Development/Training, and Personnel Psychology. I also received training from The College of Executive Coaching and associate degrees in Supervision & Leadership Development. You may ask, "Is she addicted to learning?" No, its all about "sharpening the saw" as Stephen Covey said!

By connecting with you, I bridge the gap between where you are now and where you want to be in the future. My powerful intuition and ability to empathize allows you to successfully reinvent yourself and get past what holds you back so you can change... for good! After all, you can have all the right skill sets in the world. But, to be truly successful, you must also have the right mindsets! Many self-help programs provide the "how-to" information, but fail to reveal your "why?" or "why not to?" Would you like to discover how you hold yourself back with self-limiting, non-supportive, dis-empowering thoughts and beliefs? Would you like to eliminate the "I can't..." mental blocks, the "Yeah, but..." excuses, and the "What-if...?" fears? Then work with me! Unlike most self-proclaimed "gurus", I show you how to overcome these obstacles. After all, we need more than just goals and strategies to meet them. My training and coaching programs fill that gap. See me featured in the media:

If you're interested in self-awareness, we can begin with assessments such as the Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI), DISC Behavior Styles Assessment, and Strengthsfinder Assessment. These tools allow you to clarify your personal and professional strengths, communication style, and critical areas of development. After reviewing these assessments, you and I collaborate to create your individualized leadership action plan, with unique specific, measurable, action-oriented, realistic, time-referenced (S.M.A.R.T.) goals, objectives, and strategies. Your action plan outlines how you can use your assessment results to change and improve. We then identify mental blocks to meeting goals, errors in thinking so that you can re-wire or re-program your mind with success mindsets.

If you want a coach who helps leaders “from the inside out”, I can enable you to achieve breakthroughs by removing self-limiting mindsets.  I teach people not only what great leaders do, but also how they think! I am a Leadership Coach who helps emerging female leaders develop the confidence, courage, & assertiveness to reach the next level in their career! Hundreds of men AND women who are authoritarian, bottom-line driven, command-and-control, micro-managing "snoopervisors" become more like servant leaders with my coaching/counseling. As an Executive Recovery Coach, I also help executives and high profile, high-income professionals such as doctors, lawyers, professional athletes, CEO's, and dentists recover from addiction.

Check out my interactive, online, on-demand, leadership skills courses that include quizzes, self-awareness inventories, written reflections, and application activities. If you're a busy leader overwhelmed with the constant rapid change of this global pandemic and the stress associated with it and you want to get "to the next level" in your career, you may be interested in my book, “Leadership Success in Spite of Stress”. I also have several self-hypnosis leadership development audiobooks available on my website:
