I am an expert in grief and navigating through that grief and loss.

This is life. Our roles change and shift, and our loved ones come and go without rhyme or reason. We all grieve for different lengths of time and at different paces. 

I can help you through it to your new life and identity on the other side of the grief. 

Grief Can Include

I help people experiencing grief move forward with their lives after any type of loss or overwhelming emotion. This includes:

“I’ve taken my life and career experiences and combined them with my years as a social worker and life coach and formed INNtrospection. The name reflects the love I have for my former innkeeping career as well as the word which means to look inward, introspection.”

Are We a Good Fit?

You and I will work well together if you can
answer yes to these questions:

  • Do you want to move forward?
  • Do you want to start living again?
  • Are you willing to make changes?

My coaching isn’t for you if you…

  • Enjoy feeling like a victim.
  • Relate to (and live) the saying “misery loves company.”
  • Love wearing black (Lol!)
  • Aren’t interested in moving your life forward.
  • Are content to feel sad and miserable throughout your life.
