Your own words reveal and heal

I believe you’re already complete. The question is, how do you get to the real, authentic, beautiful you? Answer: My specialty is coaching childhood trauma and triggers. Let’s get to the root of what’s bothering you – and reframe what you see.

My coach approach helps you find physical and emotional safety, unconditional love and play. Play is the opposite of wasting time. It’s the key to your purpose, creativity and success in work and relationships.

As you think out loud, I’ll listen carefully and ask key questions. My coaching vision is enriched by so many experiences. Journalist. Professor. Student of Daoist healing arts. Divorced, single mom who was in an interracial marriage. American-born child of Chinese immigrant parents.

What took me decades to process and learn can be yours. Now. Right now. Read more about me and my coaching.
