He Fed Me and Set Me on the Right Path
My belief in the Lord and the Bible guide my work in my ministry and in helping others. I have education and experience in: life coaching; chemical dependency treatment; congregational care; ministry: teaching, preaching and counseling; teaching in public schools and more. My joy for serving others is supported by my years of experience and education in relying on Biblical truths to help others walk the Right Path Forward toward their Authentic Self in Christ.
I grew up in Southern California by the beach. My favorite spot was on the beach sometimes by the pier pictured above. Whenever possible I still love to dive into the Pacific Ocean and catch a few waves. I see His love for us in His gifts of the ocean, the beaches and the waves. I see His creative intellect in His plan to set the tides in motion when He created the Earth. I see His creative beauty in the waves and nature (Psalm 19:1). He set the tides in motion just as He sets our lives in motion (Ephesians 1).
Our paths are guided by Him like the tides of the ocean are guided by Him. HIs plan for His precious people is in motion and will be completed. We have choices inside of His plan to walk our paths within our Authentic Selves in Christ. Finding one's Authentic Self in Christ reveals one's Christ-Centered path which leads to living daily in the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23).
I believe that I serve God and you best when I meet you where you are and walk with you. Your style of learning combined with your history create the path we will walk to bring about the best outcome for you. You will have opportunity to design your own roadmap to change. I incorporate many approaches in my coaching practice; we will determine together the best approach for you.
A cognitive behavioral approach is one of my favorite tools for helping people. I use the Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy model often. REBT and other cognitive behavioral approaches are a great fit for Christ-Centered Transformational Coaching. One of the main goals of Transformational Coaching is to help the client to move forward spiritually by removing false negative beliefs and replacing them with Godly safe beliefs leading to your Authentic Self in Christ. The goal is to transform the mind to a more Christ-like belief system guided by His loving power.

but be transformed by the renewing of your mind”
