Your own words reveal and heal

Here’s my coach approach: I believe you are already complete. All you need is our special, quiet coaching space — this is where you get to see who you really are.

In our sessions, you think out loud. I listen carefully.

My job is to summarize what I’m hearing and ask key questions. This is how you’ll discover surprising solutions that come from within you.

I’m here to share all my professional skills as a coach, journalist, professor and student of Daoist healing arts. I also bring personal insights from my journey as a divorced single mom and the American-born daughter of Chinese immigrants.

What took me decades to process and learn can be yours. Now. Right now.
