Health & Wellness
As a Catalyst for Change Life Coach, Reiki Master, Author, Speaker, Nonprofit Consultant, and Landscape ArchitectI, I empower people with tools and techniques that activate, energize and catalyze healing energies that reduce energy depleting stress while assisting them to take charge of their inner and outer worlds and discover their potential.
My own life-long search for answers raising a uniquely gifted yet challenging and labeled child led me to a variety of "alternative" healing techniques that made such a difference in his life, my life and our family that I became a multi-faceted practitioner so I could share hope with others.
I authored ‘Complicated Child-Simple Options’ and worked in and out of school systems assisting parents and at-risk youth find ways to improve the challenges they face when confronted with labels such as; ADD/ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Aspergers, Oppositional Defiant Disorder and others. This passion to help labeled youth also led me into the nonprofit sector developing programs for youth, the environment and the community eventually moving into Executive Management. My desire to offer proven systems for helping others break through limitations, reduce stress, find and live their dreams led me to becoming a Certified Life Coach through Life Mastery Institute and a Licensed HeartMath coach through HeartMath Institute.
I have appeared on local television and spoke at numerous meetings, events and conventions throughout the United States and Canada.
The common thread - passion to help people, the land, and community through heart-centered compassionate action.
How I use the HeartMath System
At Step Stone I offer a variety of services designed to help people feel safe and nurtured while exploring their life challenges. Whether I am in a Life Coaching scenario or I am offering a Reiki Session, I use the HeartMath System to bring my clients into a state of coherence, reducing their stress response in the moment and amplifying the beneficial effects of the services received. I also offer the HeartMath System in my Coaching business as a stand alone process based on the persons need. I use the emWave Pro and Inner Balance Technologies helping clients as they build their resilience muscles. I particularly enjoy working with children using the emWave Pro games. The youth I have worked with are already keyed into technology and seem to respond very quickly to emWave Pro.
