As the Founder of LifeStrategies, I provide training and consultation in motivational interviewing (MI) and health coaching for professionals working in a variety of fields including health care, health promotion, social services, medical and oral health education. I am known for an engaging, energetic, compassionate and collaborative learning style. My “learning laboratory” supports a process for developing skills in health coaching and motivational interviewing.

With over 15 years experience in health coaching and motivational interviewing and 30 years in behavior change, my strength is in customizing a training.

Trainings can last from 1 hour to 3 days to meet the intended outcomes of each group. In addition, using health coaching assessment tools, I provide powerful and helpful feedback on coaching skill. Practitioners walk away empowered and focused on strengths and areas for continued development.

Services Include:

Motivational Interviewing training for staff

Health Coaching and Motivational Interviewing Assessment, Coding and Feedback


Continuing Education programs

Individual Life and Wellbeing Coaching


Motivational Interviewing Cue Cards

This resource, which I personally developed, highlights key takeaways about motivational interviewing. The pocket-sized cards are an ideal tool to have on hand when working with patients and clients.
