I am a certified Energy Psychology Practitioner, living and working Boulder, CO. I am also a certified life coach who has been in practice, as Flourish! Personal Coaching, a multispecialty practice, since 2008 I offer positive psychology-based coaching services focusing on wellbeing (including sleep and chronic pain coaching), adult ADD success, dissertation completion, and successful career transitions (including retirement). My clients come to me when they have gotten stalled in their pursuit of important personal and professional life goals. As a positive psychology coach, I help my clients identify and deploy their strengths to energize their work in developing and implementing strategies to achieve those goals. I now teach Energy Psychology practices -- specializing in Peak Performance EFT--to all my clients so that the traces of their old emotional wounds can be erased, freeing them to live their lives to the fullest.
Prior to becoming a coach, I earned my masters’ degree in Counseling and Consulting Psychology from Harvard and worked as a certified substance abuse counselor and and a statewide trainer for health professionals in substance abuse issues in Massachusetts. After receiving my PhD in Social Work at the University of North Carolina School of Social Work, I continued to work there as a research professor until retiring in 2008. I have published in professional journals widely on stress resilience and the use of the Internet to provide emotional support. I have also earned certifications in Ericksonian Hypnosis and as a Reiki-II practitioner.
