Job-stressed? Life-stressed? Women, learn calming techniques, identify stress triggers and face fear with courage. Mental fitness + coaching will take you from stressed to refreshed.

I’ve been where you are – stressed, juggling too much, expectations too high, health suffering, relationships not where you want them to be, no time to breathe. I’ve spent the last twenty years on a personal growth journey finding ways to calm worry and stress, learning to set healthy boundaries, practice self-compassion and courage, discovering the benefits of prioritizing, delegating, and letting go. I’ve learned tools to quieten the inner criticism and pause in the middle of it all to make sure my choices are the right ones to take me forward.

Sue was instrumental in helping me find balance between commitments and fulfilling my own needs.

My Stressed to Refreshed coaching + mental fitness program will give you the calm, clear-headed, action-focused help that will change things. Decreasing stress is where we’ll begin. I’ll teach you simple and quick techniques that fit into your busy life that will help you find calm in the middle of the craziness. We’ll tailor our sessions so that you get what you need.


My background in social work has taught me the importance of context and to see beyond the surface and pass those insights along to you. My certification through the Co-Active Training Institute has given me the ability to adapt and adjust – a coaching style based on whatever is most pressing to you, so that you’ll feel immediate relief and walk away with a plan. Positive Intelligence Mental Fitness training has given me practical science and research-based tools I can share to decrease stress, build new healthy thought patterns, and improve positive emotions. These tools build the muscle to sustain change.


As a certified International Coach Federation practitioner, I am bound by and committed to the ethical guidelines and professional standards of practice set out by the organization so that you know you’ll receive excellent coaching. I want to use my experience, training, and skill to help you live with less stress and regret, and make sure your life is full of all the right things.

I learned a lot about myself and got clear on my goals.
