Coaching is a partnership, and coach and client share equally in the collaboration. The desire, resourcefulness and life experience of the client are the inspiration and foundation of the coaching work. As coach, I bring my own life’s journey of healing and growth informed by training and education and the passion to help clients discover their own path to fulfillment.
I live with my husband in the beautiful Berkshires of Western Massachusetts, about 15 miles south of Pittsfield, where we raised a family of three. Among my interests are meditation in motion, free dance, reading, writing, art, cooking whole foods, going to my cabin in central Maine and working on the land with my husband (and the insects!), and a host of outdoor activities, including golf, tennis, swimming and hiking.
My educational background includes a BA from Trinity College in the Classics, an MA from Andover Newton Theological School in Psychology and Religion, the practice and teaching of Co-Counseling, a peer-based program of emotional and personal growth, and a Certified Professional Coach degree from the ICF* certified Coaching for Transformation program in NYC. I am actively engaged in the ICF of New England. My coaching is enriched by my skills as parent, teacher, and director of religious education.
I invite you to call me to set up an initial consultation to determine if we are a good match for each other. Please email me or call (413) 329-0449.
