~~~~~ My Personal Story
I chose to specializing in breakups and divorce coaching/counseling as a result of working with clients and my own personal experience of a separation and divorce.
When my marriage of 20+ years broke up, I felt devastated and overwhelmed. Like most people, I was unprepared for the emotional turmoil, fear and decisions that I needed to make. I went back into therapy/coaching and also drew on the tools I had as a Coach and Counselor. It was one of the most challenging and difficult periods of my life.
I needed to to empower and assert myself; plus make decisions that were in our son's best interests and mine; not decisions based on my emotions or the influence of my soon to be "ex." There were also specific plans and actions to be implemented and time-lines for these to take place...legal representation, custody decisions, living arrangements, financial etc.
I wanted to release emotional attachments, deal with my fears and better handle every day ups and downs. I felt intimated during specific communications with my husband and various stages of the separation and divorce process.
If I had been able to work with a Coach and Counselor versed in breakups, divorce and business, the entire process would have gone more smoothly both practically and emotionally.
As a result of my own experience, and through working with clients, I developed the practices, strategies and techniques that would best serve the goals of a person going through the challenge of a separation or divorce ... to facilitate a smoother transition
both practically and emotionally; and to create a more rewarding and joy filled life.
There are opportunities in crisis; strengths we can draw upon, support we can receive and ways to create love and appreciation for ourselves and others.
It is my desire to help you move through a breakup or divorce in the most confident, positive and empowered way possible.
My background also includes:
Holding seminars, workshops and
coaching/counseling through private sessions and telephone sessions.
I am also Certified Coach Master NLP
Practitioner, and additionally trained in Gestalt Therapy for 4 years, and in Spiritual Counseling. My expertise also includes Effective Communication, Intimacy and
I chaired and organized the To
Tell The Truth Healing and Therapeutic Conference in NYC, which over 500 people attended. It was comprised of 5 keynote speakers and 20 breakout workshop sessions. For that event I contributed articles to several publications and created a cable TV video that was distributed in the tri-state area.
I have been interviewed on radio talk shows and written about in various local and international publications.
Before entering the Coaching and
Counseling field, I was a Corporate Executive traveling extensively
throughout Asia. After many years in the corporate arena, I opened my
own two stores, specializing in Business Clothing for Pregnant Working
Women. In that business, I worked closely with pregnant women and also
held seminars to help them transition from career women to working moms.
Drawing on my previous management and entrepreneurial experience, I help clients to strategize business, career and new life directions.
My interest in coaching and counseling occurred as a result of going through my own therapy and the powerful transformations that took place both inside me and in the externals of my life. When I sold my business, it was a natural transition for me to professionally train and develop a professional practice in these fields. I wanted to give to others that which I had received. I subsequently became an Ordained Interfaith Minister so as to better understand different people's faiths and beliefs, spiritual inclinations, or distrust of religion.
I bring an extensive range of expertise to my work and can relate to people from many walks of life.
I would like to assist you during the next stages of your breakup or divorce journey. Through our collaboration, you can experience a powerful shift inside yourself, make positive new decisions, and come through the process more whole and complete than you can imagine.
