About Judy

Judy-portrait.jpg

I believe that change is possible at any stage of life.

I also know that making a change is not easy. New starts or restarts – in relationships or personal choices, in home or career – can be unsettling and really shake your confidence.

For me, coaching is a powerful way to help you to create a life you’re proud of, find your passion, make intentional choices, reach your dreams, and build close and loving relationships.

Finding my voice as a new coach during the last five years has been energizing and also challenging.  Learning to accept myself on those days that I felt like a shaky novice, helps me to bring compassion to you – wherever you are in your process of change.

Over three decades as an educator and leader, I gained tremendous experience listening and empowering others to identify a clear vision. I love building teams and deep collegial relationships.  I integrate all of that in my coaching.

I’ve been a mom and a life partner for almost forty years, and I appreciate how much investment and openness it takes to keep significant relationships thriving and healthy through the ups and downs of life. I also bring that to my coaching.

I began coaching with a focus on career change, and I soon discovered how often relationship struggles were present in my clients’ stories.  I felt called to help people to face those struggles and to bring new life to marriage, family, and other significant relationships.

I have a passion to learn and have trained in a variety of approaches to working with individuals and couples. It’s inspiring for me to weave my tools and experience into a meaningful and effective coaching process.

I’d love to support you to revitalize your relationship, clarify your values and priorities, be self-confident and dream big!

If you’re ready to create the life you imagined - or create a fresh new vision for yourself or your relationship - I’m excited to embark on a coaching process with you.
