Confident Directions is the culmination of my own personal and professional journey in the expansive field of personal growth and life affirming wellness choices. I have always been intrigued by the mind, body, spirit connection and all of my careers have brought me to this place, which feels like true north to me.
I became a Licensed Massage Therapist in 1990 and continue to have a private practice alongside life coaching. I owe my coaching journey to all the people who came for bodywork, but were also seeking wellness skills and resources to support them in living a life of purpose. My own initiative for supporting my clients in their goals, led to my decision to become a life coach.
I entered into these professions with a background in Psychology and Education.
I promptly discovered my passion for women's health and became a Certified Childbirth Educator, Labor Coach and Early Parenting Facilitator. For many years, I taught privately, for physicians and in women's health and wellness programs at MCI-Framingham, MA.
I continued to nurture this interest in early relationships by volunteering for Jewish Family and Children's Services in their Visiting Moms program. In fact, the Hallmark Channel taped a documentary about my relationship with one of my new moms and me! In 2004, I founded The Wellness Roundtable Holistic Practitioners' Network, a forum for other wellness professionals to create collaborative relationships and continue the improvement and availability of resources to clients and community.
The Wellness Roundtable has blossomed to be an incredible connecting point for area practioners. I thoroughly enjoy coaching individuals, but also, leading and creating workshops, seminars and retreats. When you do the work you love, it is exciting and effortless...well almost!
