Coaching executives requires an understanding of organization systems, the neuroscience of leadership and working with groups and teams, as well as understanding corporate contracting between client and organization. In 2011 I completed a full training at EGL Executive Coach Training Program.
In 2006 I completed a full coach training at Hypnotherapy Clearing House (HCH) and received the designation CPLC along with my certificate.
I was trained and certified at the Hypnotherapy Clearing House in Lafayette, California by the founder Dr. Holly Holmes Meredith. I competed my training in 2002 though I have returned to complete advanced trainings since then.
I was trained and certified to a Master level at the NLP Institute of California, completing my training in 2007. I was trained by the institute’s founder, Tim Hallbom, one of the world’s leading NLP trainers.
I have spent the last 40 years engaged in the study of psychology, philosophy, spirituality, and alternative forms of healing. During that time I have been on a dedicated path toward my own personal development and in turn have been able to support and guide many other people in their journey as well. In my consulting I share resources, information about my research, as well as what has worked for others.
I was trained and certified at the Grief Recovery Institute® in 2002 by founder Russell Freidman and have lead a number of Grief Recovery Programs, as well as working the process one-on-one with clients.
I was trained in the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) in 2002-2003 and have utilized the technique in my practice ever since.
I have worked in the arts and entertainment industries for 40 years in a number of different roles—for 20 years as a coach, hypnotherapist and consultant to performers, filmmakers, directors, writers, producers, artistic directors, and professionals working either independently or in organizations such as The Houston Ballet, Rice University, Warner Brothers Entertainment, Paramount Pictures, and Twentieth Century Fox.
I now bring my practice to those in other walks of life, serving clients globally and locally, who are ready to move to the next level of success, joy and fulfillment.
I am a Master Certified Coach (MCC) through the International Coaching Federation (ICF). I am also certified as a professional life coach, leadership and executive coach, Hypnotherapist, NLP (Neuro-Linguistics) Master Practitioner, and Grief Recovery® Specialist.
I work with my clients at a deep level to create personal fulfillment and professional success. This is done through supporting self awareness and helping clients utilize the tools that improve interactions in life and as leaders. Through my blend of tools and experience my clients have accomplished their goals and moved on to have happier, more fulfilling lives and careers.
I live in Santa Barbara with my husband Dr. Jeff Evans, CEO of Envision Global Leadership.
I look forward to serving your success.
