Hi, I'm Kathy, and I would like to help you become a more powerful creator of your own life.
I love the roller-coaster of life. While the plunges into the depths have been scary, I have come to relish each climb back to a peak.My descents have always opened gates to insight and prodded me to important personal growth.
From my efforts to save a troubled marriage, I discovered happiness comes from within. During my effort to end my marriage, I gained self-knowledge and inner peace.
From a bicycling accident that put me in intensive care with a concussion and required surgery to repair my face, I gained deep empathy for the misfortunes of others. Because I was uninsured, paying off the resulting medical bills helped me release long-held fears regarding money.
From a mountain of failed manuscripts, I learned to write fiction. I sold four novels of my own and have shared my knowledge with others. In addition to teaching classes and delivering workshops across the U.S, I published the A Novel Approach newsletter for three years. About 80% of my students who completed their novel have become published, and many are now building solid careers as novelists.
From living with my aging parents during my father’s decline into Alzheimer’s disease and eventual death, I learned the joys that come from accepting what cannot be changed.
I am the oldest of nine siblings, the mother of two grown children, grandmother of two delightful little boys, and an avid hiker. After both my children had graduated from college, I returned to the university and earned a B.A. in Anthropology. I graduated from International Coaching Academy in 2006 and have a CPC certification.
As an enthusiastic participant in life, I focus on results and continue to study the contributing factors. I believe that by understanding cause-and-effect, happy results can be replicated and undesirable results can be avoided. To coaching, I bring clarity, wisdom, enthusiasm and passion. To my clients, I give unconditional acceptance and encouragement.
