I am a veteran solo entrepreneur. I knew it was time to make a career change a few years ago, but I needed to prepare. I wanted to know whether or not I could make money doing something new. I sought coaching to help me connect to a new purpose, deal with my limiting beliefs, and visualize a different future. I became an ICF-credentialed coach in the process.

I planned to transition a very lucrative 16-year-old publishing business into the coaching business of my dreams. As I moved forward with my plans, my husband ended our 27-year marriage.

Divorce upends everything familiar. And, depending on age, considerations are different. I'm sensitive to unique situations and work with my clients to limit stress and expense so they can focus on a life-affirming future.

We, the Co-Owners of Children's Wellness Center of Colorado, PLLC, have a vision of serving those who have been hurt by various forms of abuse and trauma. We see intervention with children as making the biggest impact toward disrupting patterns of abuse that lead to chronic pain and suffering. We know that parents/caregivers have the greatest influence over the lives of the children in their care and not only do they deserve to heal too, but their healing impacts the child's healing. Our hope for every child, teen, parent, young adult, and family that we serve at Children's Wellness Center of Colorado, PLLC, is that they will become who they were meant to be when relieved of pain caused by trauma.
