I am a personal and spiritual growth teacher and coach who has been creating training programs for over 15 years. My own personal transformation and healing from both emotional and sexual abuse as a child and an abusive 19-year relationship found me attracting mentors and teachers who taught me the building blocks that created my own finally successful marriage of 30 years with a wonderful and loving man. I teach all the tools I learned and developed to find my own emotional health and I consider the success of my third marriage as proof that if one does the work, one reaps the rewards.
My life is dedicated to teaching love and living in it as much as I can. That includes giving love to myself, my family and friends and to give to the world from the talent that I've been given which means I cannot hold onto the pain that has been caused me ‐ even and maybe especially by myself ‐ or I cannot love fully.
My loving and wonderful husband, Bart, passed away in 2015. Even as I write this, my heart gives a little jump and my mind cannot totally believe he is gone. It was a very rough time after he passed on all levels – physical, emotional and mental but because I am blessed with love, tools and lots of support, I have recovered. I am not the same person I was with him but at least I recognize myself now.
Miracles continue to occur in my life. Four months after my husband passed, my daughter discovered she was pregnant and when her daughter, my granddaughter turned two months, the two of them moved in with me. Babies are magic and so my little Juniper Mae has spread her baby magic to her grandma and my life is good.
My story is written here.
Either I’m just the luckiest person in the world or (and I like this idea much better), my plan when I came here to Planet Earth was to have the first part of my life be somewhat hellish and then when it was just exactly the right moment, to run into ways and means to heal from my past. My whole self-discovery healing journey led to the development of Emotion-Based Coaching.
A lot of people don’t know this about John Gray (author Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus) but he is a master at understanding emotions – how they work and how to process through them. I was trained by him in this work for years. When I met John, I had no idea what a normal array of human emotions were. I usually felt wild optimism or deep sadness and depression. As a result of what I learned from John and the continued work I did using the tools I learned, I became an emotional intelligence “savant“.
After years of using this technology and understanding how the process of emotions works in me, I can and do train life coaches in similar work. All of this technology is contained in Emotion-Based Courses and Coaching.
If you couple emotional healing with the universal truths of forgiveness and it’s healing effects, then add on the understanding of what quantum physics says and tie that in with spirituality and you end up with Emotion-Based Coaching.
The online video courses I’ve created reflect my philosophy of healing the emotions.
Emotion-Based Coaches help clients to heal from their past so they too can continue on their life’s journey towards fulfilling their purpose here on Planet Earth. At the same time that you receive support, guidance, instruction, you can also benefit from the life coaching skills your coach has been trained with.
The bigger picture of this philosophy is that if you heal the past, you will be able to uncover the incorrect beliefs about yourself and life that you carry as a result of unheard and unprocessed feelings. When you do both parts – the healing and the changing of false beliefs, you find you are a kind of vessel for inspiration and therefore can perform inspired action instead of the same old hamster wheel of behaviors which will keep creating pretty much the same life over and over.
Making a decision to hire a coach or begin a relationship with a mentor/trainer is a big deal. I know because I’ve done it.
When I talk to a potential client, we know pretty quickly whether we are a fit or not. Since I am not a salesperson, I don’t sell what I have to offer. My intention is to see if we are a match. The decision to hire is up to you.
The philosophies of Emotion-Based Coaching and Courses have existed since 2009 in a formalized form but have been the road I traveled to reach emotional health and happiness myself.
We all start out with self-love as babies and often life has a way of interfering. Additionally everyone has at least some emotional baggage. Sharing in either an Emotion-Based Course that you take online or a Facebook group with other people who “get you” or with your coach or with me as your coach, mentor or trainer, is, in my opinion like giving voice to spirit. You have to experience to fully get its value.
