More About Me
Passionate About Helping Others
All of us have stressful lives and can benefit from a helping hand from time to time. Helping others is my way of giving back for all the times I've been helped to overcome life's ups and downs.
I've been helping others for a long time and it makes me feel great every time I am able to make a positive difference in someone's life.
Personally, I understand the negative power that stress has in one's life and I certainly know what it feels like to be overwhelmed. I have overcome several serious operations and medical procedures due to a significant heart issue that began in my teens. These experiences have taught me critical lessons in patience, resilience, courage, confidence and perseverance that I pass along to those I work with.
Over the years, I have learned how to manage stress so that it doesn't consume me. I now enjoy good health, a positive mindset, strong mental health and success in reaching goals I set for myself. I'd like to help you do the same for yourself.
Professionally, as a registered social worker, I have a breadth of experience helping people of all ages and backgrounds make positive and productive changes to their lives and to overcome what overwhelms them.
As a coach, I recognize people have different wants and expectations. I tailor my coaching to what you want and need. I am caring, honest and patient and expect high quality service as a consumer, so that's what I provide as a coach. I also love to laugh and use humour in sessions.
A valuable gift I've had all my life is the ability to recognize the strengths and skills others possess - I see people's true character and their wonderful qualities that they may even forget they have. Everyone possesses greatness and I help highlight what they have to amplify their success.
