My husband Dale and I were married in 1985. Although we have been married for more than 30 years, it hasn’t always been easy. In the early part of our marriage life was great and then the struggle of beginning our family set in when infertility issues began taking its’ toll. After many years, much prayer and medical treatment, God blessed our family with two miracles,Tyler and Matthew, who are now amazing young men beginning their own careers.
As a massage therapist with 25 years of experience, listening has always been a critical part of my practice. However at one point in my life, I began listening to the lies of comments that had played over and over in my mind since I was a teenager and ended up in a lesbian affair for several years. If that wasn’t enough, at 38 years old I began having flashbacks of sexual abuse by a family member. My good, safe Christian life was beginning to crumble around me.
In 2004, after I couldn’t handle my deception and lying any longer, I surrendered my life back over to a loving and faithful God and decided I was going to break off the affair. That same evening my life changed forever when my partner and I were involved in a head-on collision with a drunk driver and she was killed.
Since that time and through much prayer and counseling, God has completely restored my marriage and has called me to be a Relationship Coach. Although it took every effort we had to keep going, I can honestly say to you, that our relationship is better now than it has been in years. As God promises in Jeremiah 29:11, “I know the plans that I have for you…” My heart is to help you uncover a plan and to save your marriage and your family.
I received my Certified Professional Life Coach (CPLC) designation from PCCI (Professional Christian Coaching Institute) and submit to the standards of the International Coach Federation (ICF) Code of Ethics. I am a Christian coach that means inviting the Holy Spirit into every conversation. I am also a Certified Master Facilitator in the Core Gift Discovery© Process from the Core Gift Institute.
I am very excited about how God has worked in my life over the past several years and I look forward to walking with you on your journey.
From the Heart,
