Know Your Story… Change Your Story

I am passionate about helping people develop self-awareness so they can live a more fulfilled and on-purpose life.

I am a licensed professional counselor, certified executive coach, author, and speaker. I am the owner of Grace Counseling Service LLC and SelfAware Life Coaching. I graduated with a  Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from Wichita State University and have a Master of Arts in Counseling from Denver Seminary. I received my executive coaching certification from The College of Executive Coaching and am a member of the International Coach Federation.
I  integrate my experience of being a registered nurse at The Children’s Hospital in Denver with her 25 years of being a clinical counselor and coach to focus on all aspects of wellness and productive living. I am certified in Emotional Intelligence and am a Daring Way™ and Dare to Lead™ Facilitator.  I also works with teams and organizations to build customized coaching and workshop packages to promote retention and prevent burnout.
Speaking is something I really enjoy and have fun doing. I have lectured nationally and internationally on topics such as emotional regulation, leadership, communication, personal development, and self-awareness.
My motto for my business and my life is: Be Aware and Live Intentionally.

What Guides Me

I believe a fulfilled and successful life requires self-awareness and intentional action. My couseling, coaching, and workshops are centered around increasing self-awareness so you can live a more aligned and authentic life.  


 I provide assessments, practical tools, and emotional intelligence (EQ) skillset to help individuals and professionals have a more fulfilled, intentional and purposeful life. My approach is goal-oriented and value-based, with an emphasis on the Dare to Lead foundation. 


 The key component of my couseling and coaching is to help clients set goals, overcome obstacles, and then navigate positive outcomes.

Where You’ve Seen Me

I am the author of the international bestselling book and workbook, The Self-Aware Life: Four Pillars to Long-Lasting Fulfillment and Success as You Go Through Life’s Transitions. 


I also authored: “Self-Awareness in Personal Transformation,” in the Handbook of Personal and Organizational Transformation.” Published by Springer Publishing.

This handbook aims to draw the best and most creative thinking about the field of transformation in one place, to present a comprehensive overview of leading edge transformation theories and approaches for both the academic and the practitioner.  The lines between academic and practitioners are becoming more and more blurred these days.

This Handbook aims to be a creative dialogue in this space that integrates transformation theory and practice.
