“Everyone who has ever taken a shower has had an idea. It’s the person who gets out of the shower, dries off, and does something about it that makes a difference.”
~ Nolan Bushnell

Working with me is a personalized experience like no other you’ll find. I promise.

I am passionate about helping others be more successful. My energy is contagious. It is MY purpose to ignite a fire within you so you are able to live out YOUR life’s purpose.

Combining my rich and diverse background as a mediator, lawyer, educator, performer, and successful business-owner, I am able to provide guidance across a wide platform of topics using many different modalities. I honed the ability to get to the core of an issue during my years as a lawyer. I use an artful combination of analytical skills and intuition to help my clients focus, grow, and take action.

I coach and consult with individuals in one-on-one and group formats, as well as with corporations and organizations, to help each individual and each organization find balance, success and joy at home, in business, and in life.

6 Pillars of Powerhouse Success

I tailor my coaching and consulting to each client’s unique situation, but have discovered themes among my clients, which led me to create my Signature System – The 6 Pillars of Powerhouse Success. The System encapsulates the most common stages that a client goes through in order to achieve success. Not all clients need to go through the entire system. Some clients work on one Pillar, some work on a few… some go in order, some need to move around. The system is a powerful, easy-to-follow guide to support you as you reach for success.

The System is one that has evolved from my own experience. I have very much created my purpose and I live my passion! How did I do it? I put myself through this system! Now, I have the privilege of helping others through this system and watching them transform their life and work.

Types of Coaching

To reach as many clients as possible, I offer a variety of solutions and programs, from a one-time Strategy Session to a year-long Platinum Level Coaching Program, and several options in between. Take a look at the options below to see which one may be the perfect fit for you, depending on your desired outcome, time commitment, and investment level. If you want more details, click on the links for each categy.

If you are unsure which Coaching option is best for you, set up a Discovery Call with me so that I can help you determine the type and level of coaching or consulting you need in order to achieve success.

Coaching and Consulting

… sometimes feel like there is a magic formula to being a successful entrepreneur and you weren’t given it?

…chase bright shiny objects but don’t actually implement the success principles necessary to excel as an entrepreneur?

If so, you need support, guidance, and expertise. You need some Kick-Butt Business Coaching! This isn’t just any old business coaching — it’s the kind that gets results.

Organizations are living breathing organisms that depend on their internal structures to work efficiently and effectively in order to thrive. Success is contingent on clear goals and objectives, strong leadership, motivated participation, and a supportive environment.

Ways to Coach with Me

Strategy Session

(75 Minutes)

Need a jump start, or a quick focused session for a targeted issue, and don’t want the commitment of a long-term coaching relationship at this time?

A Strategy Session is the answer. They are budget-friendly, only-when-you-need-it coaching sessions. We focus on 1-2 topics… whatever you need help with (and these sessions are incredibly helpful!). You pick what’s most important to you and we get to work on it. Many clients use this service as a starting point for other coaching programs.


VIP Intensive

(half-day, full-day or 2 day)

The concentrated time allows us to dig deep and lay out a step-by step plan for exactly how to live the life you’ve been dreaming of, thrive in your business, transition your career, or lead your team.


Platinum Level Private Coaching

(3, 6 and 12 month programs)

When you are ready to make a long-term commitment to your success, you want the full access pass, which is Platinum Level Coaching. Clients that are ready to step up, play big, and implement are the ones that are attracted to longer term coaching. You are invested in your own success and know that you want a partner to help you get there.


E-mail Coaching

Are you too busy right now to devote an hour or more to coaching by phone, Skype or in person?

Is your heart and mind screaming for coaching help, but your budget won’t cooperate?

Don’t fret — I’ve got you covered!

Here’s the full package of what you get when you work with me:


Coaching to ask the questions that peel back the layers, dig deep and get to the core of what you want, are ready for, and what blocks are in the way of you getting there.


Consulting/Training on the how-to’s, practical steps, and know-how delivered in an easy-to-understand, step-by-step style. This is where you get to tap into my wealth of knowledge and expertise, and where I freely provide answers when you need them.


Mentoring to advise you through your learning curve and inspire you to play a bigger game. I am open to sharing my own lessons learned and success principles, as I find that one of the best ways I learn is by listening to successful people talk candidly about their mistakes made and what they learned from them along the way.

I am a very honest person and feel that by being transparent, I have been able to fully help my clients. People like to be inspired and know that the mentor/coach/expert they are working with is successful, sure. And I walk the walk and talk the talk. BUT it’s also motivational and inspirational to know that the person whose shoes you’d like to walk in, who is where you want to be, didn’t just magically get there. So I plan to pull back the curtain and show you the inner workings of my journey.


Masterminding so that we can brainstorm ideas together and come up with solutions that are exciting and stretch you, but are also realistic.

Support & Accountability

Support & Accountability from someone who believes in you and knows what it takes to reach the milestones you set for your business or career and life. Consider me your kick-butt coach, partner in personal and professional development, and cheerleader all rolled into one.
