Meet Gwen

Nice to Meet You,

I’ve been helping people resolve issues and achieve Personal, Professional and Relationship goals for over 25 years – one conversation at a time! My background in Social Work and Life Skills Coaching gives me a unique perspective and set of tools to help people live a life they love. With caring, concern and understanding I am able to create a safe environment where people can open up to me and explore their situation and look for new perspectives and solutions. My style includes:

  • Sharing about my own journey, challenges and experiences if it will be helpful to the client. Many appreciate this style and embrace as my examples help them internalize the material.
  • There is always a willingness to talk about the past, especially when the limiting beliefs originated in order to address it then move forward.
  • I draw on my experience dealing with crisis situations.
  • I am tenacious in helping absolutely everyone who is committed to improving their lives.
  • The client can bounce between personal – to relationship – to professional issues as they are all interestingly inter-related and one area often affects the next.
