and health coaching
What is a health and life coach?
A health and life coach helps you put momentum into the things you want in your life.
I invite my clients to a judgment free space where they can talk, reflect on their comments, bounce some ideas around and land on action items that feel right. When you land on an action item, I am there in your corner, rooting for you, checking on your progress, encouraging you, holding you accountable to your commitments, and looking at your roadblocks and strategizing how to get around them.
Why do I need a coach?
You don’t. But hiring a coach might help you.
What will having a coach do for me?
A coach will help you sort your priorities from your distractions, and focus energy into your priorities.
If we work on my goals in my style, why do I need a coach?
Like I said, you don’t. But having a coach may give you the extra nudge to stick with what you commit to, celebrate your successes, and keep you focused on your progress.
Are coaching and counseling the same thing?
Counselors and therapists may have. clinical background to address trauma. Counseling and therapy can be like looking in the rearview to see what happened and determine how to heal. Coaching can be like looking through the windshield to determine where you want to go and how to get there.
So, do you have a certification?
What is your system and what does it include?
My system is the Work Hard Play Hard Stay Hard 90 Day Transformation. It uses communication strategies; meditation, journaling, and intuition techniques; reflective and transformational questions and most importantly: ACTION.
I want you to feel seen and heard and I’m going to ask you lots of questions, and tell you what I hear you saying. Together, we may explore new perspectives, and we may bounce around some ideas. We’ll always end a session with action. That’s what coaching is about- committing to action to get you closer to where you want to be.
It’s a 90 day program during which we meet once a week for twelve sessions. Each session is scheduled for 45-60 minutes. At the end of each session we’ll end with action items. I won’t give you homework, but I will check in on your progress with your action items and share resources as needed.
Does it really work?
Yes! Clients get results.
I had my doubts about coaching when I first heard about it, but I thought I’d give it a shot and I’ve seen my life change. Then I had doubts that my clients would get results, but they do. Look at my clients’ success stories to see what people experience. My clients report feeling less stressed, more confident, more calm, more focused, and vibrant. I was amazed when two clients in one week told me they felt like the most vibrant version of themselves. Was “vibrant” featured in a viral meme that week? No. It was a spontaneous result of coaching.
How soon can I expect results?
You’re signing up because you’re ready for a change- so let’s get started.
But really, many clients experience results after our first session. Like you, they are ready to take action, and the coaching experience provides focus and a boost to get started.
My goal for our initial meeting- our strategy session- is to bring your goals into focus and create a plan to move you closer to them. You’ll complete our first session with action items, so we don’t waste any time moving toward results.

How much time does it take?
That’s up to you. We’re talking about your goals- your health, your career, your relationships- and your time. These are things that are important to you. More time may not translate to more results. We’re looking for progress that is do-able. Little actions can have a big impact. Remember: small hinges swing big doors.
How did you get started?
I’m going to have to share some vulnerable stuff with you.
I was working my dream job, until my dream job was working me. I was working nights, weekends and holidays, waking up to staff’s urgent needs, eating in my car or while on the move, getting therapy for back pain that flared with stress, and on top of that, delving into a mysterious skin infection that doctors and dermatologists could not identify or resolve that lead to a life-changing bacterial gut infection.
It's a work in progress and my back pain and skin infection require daily attention, but I have more energy for my work and work relationships, my partner, family and friends, and my health and my hobbies.
I’m using that energy to serve my clients, mostly people like me who are achievers, do-ers, and go-getters, and can relate to a go-go-go mentality. It’s important to me to use my work to help people, and I love that I can work directly with clients to help them tap into the things most important to them.
What else do you do?
Since I’m wired with a go-go-go mentality, I’m a part time mountain bike skills instructor with Sedona Mountain Bike Academy, Arizona Trail Association’s Gear Girls, and Norco Dirt Series; a community member and leader of Flagstaff Lady Shredders; a ski patroller at Arizona Snowbowl and member of the Association of Professional Patrollers and National Ski Patrol; a bartender at Pay N Take in downtown Flagstaff and Agassiz Lodge; and I play keyboard in the mountain bike rock back Thee Deores. I love riding my bike, skiing, camping, getting on the water, and having fun with friends and loved ones.
I want to work with you. How do I sign up?
Send me a message. We’ll schedule a time over the phone, text, or email to meet remotely for a complimentary Strategy Session. I have two goals for the strategy session: it will develop a plan for you to get from where you currently are, to where you want to be, and it will help us get to know each other and see if working together for a 90 day program feels like a good fit.
