Youngest of six, I graduated from SUNY Purchase in 1991 with a BA degree in Anthropology and Photography. After a career in creating sustainable interiors, I became a certified holistic massage therapist and certified integrative coach. However, it was my own personal divorce that prompted the creation of Divorce Dialogues, a group coaching and support system for individuals facing this major life transisiton.
It was during my 2011 contribution to Debbie Ford's research for her New York Best Selling Book, 'Courage' that I was able to find the courage within me to face what I had been avoiding, the unhealthy dynamic of my then marriage. It has been in the journey of leaving, surviving, then thriving that has added richness and depth to my life as well as my work as a coach. I have learned the depth of my inner strength which enabled me to transform all the chaos, pain, and struggle into an amazing new life filled with supportive friends, family and new opportunities. I found true love in the most unexpected of places = within myself, my children and those I am closest to.
I can think of nothing I would rather do than continue to show others how to do the same for themselves.
