Hi, I'm T

I'll admit it,  I'm guilty!  I'm guilty of attempting to flee the scene of my life. Sometimes I want to slap people too but that's for another time.

When I was in my 40's, I hit a low point.  My life had been all about my family and my carefully constructed persona. Somewhere the real me got lost.  A fibromyalgia diagnosis confirmed the mounting evidence: I wasn't happy - a one-way ticket to a far away land sounded mighty fine. 

Since the chances of me being a candidate for Witness Protection were minimal, I decided I'd better pony up and get this stuff sorted out.  This is not how I wanted to live! Cue for the sad music to fade into the happy inspirational music.

Thankfully, I did sort things out.  Oh, WITSEC stills sounds good some days, this is a process after all!  My biggest lesson: I am enough, and I want you all to know that you are too.


Are You in Hiding?

It's time to quit trying to blend in and conform, people! If now is not your time to shine...when is?   As a Certified Life Coach, I offer a partnership that helps you uncover and explore the riches that are within you.  Think of it as a great treasure hunt - without needing a passport or risking malaria exposure. Get your head sorted out.  Clarify your priorities.  Put feet to your goals.  And live your life to the fullest!

I was a life coach long before I knew what a coach was.  I attribute this in part to my parents referring to me as a “35-year-old-midget” while still in single digits. Throughout my years in school and into my adult life, as a home-school mother and parent to an ADHDer, people have sought me out and confided in me for advice and words of encouragement. As a result of my love for encouraging others, I’ve been a freelance writer for many years and have written for newspapers and magazines on a variety of topics. This means I’ve had my nose in books. I especially love reading books on psychology, neurology, personal growth, spiritual topics, and a few novels tossed in here and there.

For those who are interested in creds, I am a graduate of Helena College (nursing) and Yavapai College (AGS) where I also earned advanced certification as a professional life coach. As a writer, speaker and professional coach, it is my joy and privilege to encourage folks on tapping into their most authentic self in order to find a deeply satisfying and joy filled life.

My partner-in-crime, Jay, and I have been married for 29 years. We have three extraordinary young adult children and love watching their journeys unfold. My favorite pastimes include reading, shakin’ what my mama gave me in Zumba, being in nature and playing the piano.  Good coffee and conversation make my tail wag. 



Below is a short clip of me sharing my healing story at a film showing for "All the Rage."  Embarking on your own healing path willI take some work and at times it can be scary.  That's where the partnership comes in handy.  We may even share a few laughs and have some fun!
