Iam confident that you also can heal and grow. Healing is possible when you are ready to take a first step and explore different possibilities in partnership with someone who has been on this journey. My approach to behavior change combines support, compassionate listening, and challenging you to take the next step forward. I see your strengths, notice your wins and help you to overcome obstacles and challenges. I believe in you, even when you don’t.
My background is in science, education, and behavior change.
My science background allows me to help people understand the science behind their medical challenges.
My teaching and behavior modification expertise from my dog training career helps me to explain things clearly and allows me to help people with finding small, achievable first steps and the motivation to implement them.

As your coach, I don’t need to dig into your past like a therapist. Instead, I will challenge you to envision the healthy future you desire and encourage you to identify what matters to you the most. I am interested in where you are now, where you are going, and how you will get there:
