I am an intuitive coach and consultant based in Renton, Washington, USA, just a few minutes south of Seattle. I specialize in circumstances characterized by crisis, chaos, or change for individuals and organizations, and my professional credentials attest to my knowledge and competency in that arena. The intuitive connection is where the magic happens, however, often resulting in dramatic leaps in awareness for the client. I integrate traditional coaching techniques with intuitive tools and practices when they are in alignment with my clients' values and beliefs. My emphasis is twofold: catalyzing transformative learning moments for personal growth, and optimizing personal and professional relationships for greater harmony.
My Master's degree is in Organizational Systems, with a specialization in Leadership and Organization Development. I've held an organizational leadership position for the past thirteen years. In my private business practice, I coach and consult with government, non-profits, and businesses, and also design and deliver leadership and team workshops. I have been teaching classes in various topics for nearly 30 years, and I am highly regarded as an adult educator and public speaker. I have presented at numerous conferences over the years, including being the featured keynote speaker at one conference, and a returning guest lecturer at the University of Washington. My coaching certifications are through the College of Executive Coaching and the International Coach Federation. I am also certified as a Master Practitioner in the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator.
I have been reading the Tarot for over 30 years, and teach classes in Tarot and other topics in Renton and online. Even though I had already been reading Tarot for most of my adult life, I completed the rigorous requirements to be designated as a Certified Biddy Tarot Reader (CBTR). (Biddy Tarot is, at last check, the only Tarot certifying body recognized by the International Institute of Complementary Therapists.) I also have studied and practiced creative trance, dreamwork, and metaphor coaching, and have integrated that into my practice under the label "SoulWork".
