    Board-Certified Life and Wellness Coach, Master’s Degree  in Transpersonal Studies/Psychology

    After reading dozens of self-help books, attending endless seminars, and obtaining my graduate degree, I found myself often triggered — I felt challenged with parenting my daughter, was struggling in my marriage, and facing health issues. I knew a band-aid wouldn’t cut it — I needed real solutions.  After digging deep, I became aware of what seemed to be the missing ingredient in my life — connection. Emotional triggers can completely derail true connection, intimacy, and success.  And I discovered that triggers  are actually the precise and perfect gateway to reconnect within, with others, and with our Divine Source. This was the catalyst that altered my life, as it has also done with thousands of others … from parents, to business executives, to educators.

    Combining and synthesizing tools from many disciplines, I created The WAVE Process®, a blueprint for moving from triggers and disconnection to connection and empowerment. This process can increase emotional intelligence, motivation, communication, and decision-making … providing the ability to build healthy relationships and experience authentic well-being and success.

    When we create Connection within, with others and with God/Spirit, we empower ourselves and open up to authenticity, ease, and passion – The WAVE Process is the gift to Connection.
