I am a certified coach who specializes in personal growth, relationship and career coaching. I have a private practice in Pittsburgh, PA and I am able to coach anyone, anywhere thanks to the phone.
I serve as a private practitioner working with a broad spectrum of clients. In addition to being a professional coach, I also LOVE presenting classes to a variety of audiences speaking on the topics of dating, marriage and family life. I enjoy working with couples and whole families to intentionally design their "usness" together.
I am a collaborative, solution-focused coach. Through this approach, I provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges by tapping into their strengths. I also integrate coaching techniques and helpful assignments to offer a highly-personalized program tailored to you. With compassion and understanding, I work with you to help build on your strengths and attain the personal growth you are committed to achieving.
On a personal note, I graduated from Duquesne University's Professional Coach Certification Program and received my professional coach certification there. I have a BA in Pastoral Ministry from Valley Forge Christian College that I received back 2003. I am a Certified Instructor for three courses designed by Dr. John Van Epp that use his outstanding Relationship Attachment Model: PICK: Premarital Interpersonal Choices and Knowledge, LINKS: Lasting Intimacy Through Nurturing Knowledge and Skills and Our Home Runs. I am a Certified Facilitator for the Prepare/Enrich Couple's Assessment.
Last but not least, I am happily married to David O'Brien and I am a grateful mother of two awesome boys, Isaac and Caleb. Our step family is joyfully three years old.
I have an amazing testimony of God's goodness and greatness in my own life. Personally, I've traveled through very hard life lessons and come out shining. My life is a beacon that shines that God's love and life can restore even the most desperate soul.
No matter where you are in your journey, I would like to help you turn your goals into reality.
