A Little Bit About Me

I am passionate about helping teens and young adults move from frustration, self-sabotage, and defeat to confidence and success!

I have been a teacher and a coach for 25 combined years, working primarily with high school students in public and private alternative school settings, as a swim coach, and also as a personal coach. This wonderful combination of experiences, allows me to authentically connect with teenagers and young adults from a wide variety of backgrounds and help guide them through anxiety symptoms while learning how to rewire their brain for a more positive future and calmer present.


I am blessed to be able to use my personal experience with anxiety to move teens from a cycle of exhaustion and feeling paralyzed by fear, and panic toward a life filled with hope, happiness, and self-confidence in their ability to achieve. During our sessions, I lovingly but firmly guide young ladies and gentlemen toward success using short, medium, and long term proven techniques that I used myself after struggling with intense anxiety and panic for years. Providing the right support, system, and accountability, teenagers find that they truly can conquer and make peace with the cycle of anxiety and thrive.

I live with my husband and four children in Indiana but since my sessions are conducted over the phone and online, I am able to coach teens and young adults all over the United States.  I would love to spend 45 minutes talking with you or your teen in a Breakthrough Session. You can schedule that using the green button under my picture.


How Is This Different?

Support. Accountability. A system that digs deep.

Being a teenager and a young adult comes with a host of anxieties, responsibilities, and expectations. For some, its the age of enormous hopes and dreams and for others, it's the era of confusion.  Often, we begin creating a life story for ourselves that leaves us defeated and unsure. I understand how frustrating it can be to be stuck in a cycle of negative stories and that leave you defeated and unable to move forward.  I've been there too and have learned how my personal struggle with focus and anxiety kept me in a cycle of self-sabotage and stagnation.  I openly share my experience and knowledge with the teens and young adults I coach to help them grow their own resilience and confidence while changing the story they tell themselves so they become confident, resilient, and successful. My coaching system and tools offer the right system, the right support, and the right accountability from the first session where we really talk about what you want to the last where we celebrate amazing success. 

It's so easy to get started. Schedule your Breakthrough Session, get clear on what you need, and start changing your story.
