I established the New Life Counseling and Coaching facility in Iowa in 2002. Realizing a need for expert coaching services in the Des Moines area, I expanded my professional expertise by becoming certified through the John Maxwell Team, and have created a process of teaching practical ‘Principles for Living and Leadership’, that has helped countless others to live a life of passion and fulfillment. As a John Maxwell Certified Coach, Teacher, and Speaker, I am excited to offer workshops, seminars, mastermind groups, lunch-n-learns, keynote speaking, and coaching, to aid your personal and professional growth through study and the practical application of my‘Principles for Living and Leadership’. Working together, I can help you and your team or organization to work toward reaching your goals and dreams.

As a coach I can assist you with the process of establishing and achieving personal and professional goals. Coaching is more focused on building upon strengths, while counseling has an emphasis on bringing healing to emotional and relational struggles. The key to successful coaching work is finding a coach that is not only knowledgeable in life issues, but is also qualified to address emotional health issues when they arise. Your emotional, physical and spiritual health has a direct impact on your personal and professional relationships and successes. My many years of corporate, church and small business experience and my expertise in mental health counseling, make me uniquely qualified to offer a complete and well-balanced professional and personal coaching experience.

I offer consulting services for community leaders who wish to bring their business, church or organization to the next level, survive and thrive through leadership or staff transitions, or to simply increase morale and production. I’ll meet with the leaders of your organization and create a plan to reach your goals. We'll determine where you are as an organization, where you want to go, and what you need to do to get there. I’ll also identify anything that is stifling growth in your organization. After meeting with you, we’ll create an individualized plan for your business, church or organization to help you reach your goals. Consulting for an organization often leads to personal or professional coaching for the leadership, or speaking and training for other parts of the organization. Our mission at New Life Counseling is to help you and your organization define your goals and to equip you with the necessary tools to make those goals a reality.

I am a certified speaker, trainer and coach through the John Maxwell program. I have many years experience, including my 17 years of pulpit speaking, 9 years of speaking and training at Iowa Heart Center, over 10 years as an adjunct college professor, and more than 24 years of counseling, training and speaking with New Life Counseling. I offer several types of training and speaking on a variety of personal and professional growth topics. The formats include: lunch-n-learns, keynote speaking, workshops, seminars, and mastermind groups. Available topics are in the areas of leadership, team-building, relationships, communication, personal growth, and professional growth. Upon request, I will create individualized programs, trainings, or speaking presentations based on the specific needs of your organization or association.
