I grew up in the beautiful Portland, Maine area. After losing both parents by the age of 20, I married and had two children. When I was in my mid-thirties my life completely changed. I met a woman, fell in love and left my marriage to be with her. My life was filled with turmoil, fear and indecision, yet there was also excitement, joy and a connection I’d never felt before. I sought help, faced my fears and stepped into a wonderful new life. Was it easy? No. Was it worth it? Absolutely!
I founded Emerge Into You Life Coaching because of my passion to support and guide individuals who are experiencing a change in their sexual orientation in adulthood and to also work with those who are seeking healthier, more intimate relationships.
What I offer: What separates my services from other life coaches is that I have walked in your shoes and I understand. I am able to connect with people, making you feel safe and therefore able to process through your fear and pain. I am a partner in your process of self-discovery, by listening, supporting, inspiring and guiding you towards the life you are meant to live – whatever that is.
Because of this, you will work through the typical phases of coming out more quickly and less painfully than those who face the process alone. You will be able to move through the world with your head held high; living your life with self-respect, honesty and confidence.
It is also my privilege to offer Relationship Coaching to help you improve the way you relate to and communicate with the important people in your life. It is my belief that you will attract and maintain great relationships when you take the time for your own self-development.
I am blessed with the ability to connect and empathize; addressing specific things like boundaries, emotional intimacy and communication style. I bring lots of personal experience and training to the table. Through coaching, you will become clear about what you want and feel empowered to maintain healthy boundaries and maintain relationships that are healthy and happy.
My personal joy comes from spending time with my long-term partner, family and friends. I also love to travel, garden, read and cook. I value honesty, open communication, belief in the power of human connection, empathic listening, confidentiality, trust and respect.
