Pick Up The Pieces Life Coaching

My husband passed away eight years ago from a severe stroke and I found myself in the depths of despair. I did not know which way to turn. Picking myself up and moving on with my life while taking care of two children, a home, my animals, and paying the bills was overwhelming.

Upon completion of grief therapy I realized I needed help with a new direction for my life. I began working with a Life Coach. During that time, we discovered that I had a gift for performing the same kind of work. I took the initiative and enrolled with the Coach’s Training Institute Certification Program. In 2009, I became a graduate of the Coach’s Training Institute’s Leadership Program, which changed my life forever!

After the loss of my husband and the recent loss of my sister to cancer, I found the courage to overcome adversity and move forward with my life. With the help of mentors and training, I discovered a profound strength that supplies me with the tools for sharing with others and a deeper capacity for compassion and understanding during challenging times.

I have dedicated my life’s work to helping women whose lives have been adversely impacted; assisting them with healing, and providing them with the tools and support to re-energize and to face new beginnings for living life with passion and purpose.
