Congratulations! You have successfully signed up for the Life Direction Assessment & Consultation


Welcome to the beginning of your journey! By purchasing the Life Direction Assessment, you’ve taken a powerful first step towards creating a life that lights you up.

Here’s what’s next…


First, download the Life Direction Assessment by clicking the below blue button, “Life Direction Assessment.”

Once you’ve downloaded it, make sure you save it to your computer.

The Life Assessment is a fillable PDF so you can so you can use your favorite electronic gadget to type your answers directly in the Assessment. If you need additional space, create an additional document in any format that works for you.

Second, give yourself plenty of time to  complete the Assessment.  I recommend 1-2 hours so you can take your time and not feel rushed. This process is designed to help you create a life that you truly desire, so give yourself the time you deserve to  be very thoughtful, honest and introspective. Authentic, vulnerable answers lead to tangible results.

Third, once you have completed the Life Assessment, save it to your computer and email it and any additional document (if you created one) to me at

Finally, pop out to my calendar and schedule the 90 minute consultation with me. Please give me at least 2 days to review the Assessment prior to the consultation so I can fully prepare and best serve you.  Click HERE for my calendar.

Journals & Art

Journals & Art

My art has been referred to as “Subliminal Coaching” given all the layers of messages, images, words, paint, paper and objects, all  designed to inspire, empower, encourage reflection and provide a space to voice it. Now, imagine all of this goodness on the cover of a journal!

Here’s the deal. If you want to create a life you have not yet been able to create, you must think and take action in new & different ways. You simply cannot achieve different results by doing things the same way!

Coaching Success Stories…

Through my work with Joan, I was able to completely transform some realms of my life that were bringing me down and preventing me from being the person I wanted to be. Now, I have a clear vision of the path to take to be in the place in life that I have always dreamed of being.

I was in a funk with a few key relationships in my life & felt adrift at work.  We worked on a nagging negative inner dialogue that held me back, drilled down on my core values & mission in life & created a “tool belt” of resources to navigate challenges. This clarity catapulted my life into action!  I can’t recommend Joan highly enough.

I contacted Joan to kick some generational bad habits while preserving tradition to become a leader for my family. I found that changing my thinking empowered me, personally & professionally, to discover my best self. I will be forever grateful that her program helped me learn the tools to become a better leader.
