Why A Coach?

“My goal is not to be better than anyone else, but to be better than I used to be.”

-Wayne Dyer

Whenever someone asks me, “Why do I need a coach?” or “How can you help?”
I am reminded of the parable of The Two Wolves:
An old Cherokee chief was teaching his grandson about life…

“A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.
“It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.

“One is evil — he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, self-doubt, and ego.

“The other is good — he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.

“This same fight is going on inside you — and inside every other person, too.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather,
“Which wolf will win?”

The old chief simply replied,
“The one you feed.”


 A Coach is ….

Someone who has been on the journey of self-transformation, and understands how to integrate the emotional, physical, mental and spiritual aspects of the shift experience with navigating a new direction in life.

Professional – in my case, a master’s degree in transpersonal therapy and over 12 years counseling and coaching.

Able to help you discover what may be in the way of your happiness and success, and collaborate on ways to truly move past it and exit the cycle of disappointment.

A good coach is able to draw from many different fields to help you reach your best well-being, holistically and in sync with your authentic self. No two journeys look alike.

Supportive and compassionate; bringing knowledge, awareness and insight that feeds your soul truth.

 A Client is…

Willing to keep an open mind.

Willing to be self-reflective.

Willing to change.

Willing to ask questions and be open to inner wisdom.

Willing to focus on the possibility of creating life through joy rather than struggle.

Marilyn Decalo, Transpersonal Psychologist



I have been in your shoes! I learned from firsthand experience with mentors who helped me become aware of my unique talents and the contributions I could make with my abilities. I overcame the limiting beliefs and patterns of behavior that kept me from being who I am meant to be.  The experience, support and accountability that a coach offered me, helped me climb over the walls of doubt and temptations to return to past thinking.


Do you have a gnawing feeling you are not in the right place or living your potential?  Have you been on a path of self-discovery and something is preventing you from taking steps to change?


Coaching will help you see a clearer direction very quickly, and it will become easier to make those choices that help you move forward to achieving your life goals and desires.  You will get new insights about yourself and what is truly important in your life.


If all of the above sounds like what you might be looking for, I can’t wait to work with you!
