My Life

Folks often state, “I just want to be happy…Is that too much to ask?” Someone once said that “it’s not the years in your life, but the life in your years,” that matter.

Happiness, and life-quality, can often be brought about by a simple formula: Productivity, Connection, and Purpose.

I believe that we are “hard-wired” to require all three of these essential things, in balance. I have frequently been privileged to help people obtain a higher quality of life and, yes, happiness, through a coaching-type relationship that leads to more fulfillment. Each person is naturally unique, and I honor the opportunity to be allowed into their lives as a trusted professional.

Even though I have been in the mental health field since 1978, I continue to be fascinated, and fulfilled, by using the gifts I’ve been given to help others; and I remain in awe of the power, originality, and potential of the terrific people who have come into my life. I feel just as excited about my profession as when I first started those many years ago!
