About Me


Hi, I’m Jade. I’m a Certified Life Coach & Neurolinguistic Programming Expert.

I draw on my 25-year history as an award-winning entrepreneur,  my life-long exploration of human behavior, personal development, metaphysics and ten years of working one-on-one with a Zen monk—to help you get unstuck.  Along with wisdom, I bring playfulness, warmth, depth, and intuition to my coaching sessions.

Personal challenges taught me so much about healing.

I know what it’s like to find yourself in a life you thought you wanted, only to feel unfulfilled and uninspired and wondering how you got there. I spent close to twenty years in a relationship that left me feeling lonely, frustrated, unheard, and generally miserable. And continuously overwhelmed and exhausted from working throughout the day, evenings and weekends and was in an ongoing struggle to create balance. While I enjoyed aspects of my career, a voice inside me knew it was not right for me.

Had you known me during that time, you might have thought all was going great… We were raising two beautiful children, and I ran an award-winning graphic design company consulting with hundreds of clients along with Fortune 500 companies and…I was thriving as a fine artist exhibiting my paintings nationally.


Why did I continue in both my marriage and my work when I knew it was wrong for me? Maybe you can relate…

I thought I was doing what I “should” do… And what was expected of me. I believed that if I just tried harder, I could make it work. Be happy in my marriage and find that work/life balance that I was seeking.

Staying in a relationship, a job, or remaining in a state of being stuck, unclear of your next steps or what your purpose is, what your doing with your life…can be confusing and overwhelming…enough to push aside, until things get out of hand.

That’s what happened to me.

The emotional stress and burnout caused by too much work and the intense stress I was under because of the constant struggle in my marriage— turned physical. The hand and wrist pain that I’d been nursing for years, forced me to change my career to one where I didn’t rely on the type of detailed handwork I had been doing in both my design business and fine art career.

The big aha for me was… I had sabotaged myself.

It started with one major mistake.

What was it? I ignored my intuition.

I ignored my gut instinct and continued to sabotage my happiness by allowing my negative inner critic to convince me to stay in a situation that was clearly unhealthy for me, both physically and mentally.

In my journey to make the necessary changes and discover my core values and true voice, I studied many of the great teachers and methodologies. My influences include Eckhart Tolle, Byron Katie, Thich Nhat Hahn, Michael Singer, and Marshal Rosenberg along with the study of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Non-Violent Communication, Attachment Theory, Breathwork, the hidden psychology of feminine and masculine dynamics, Shamanic Studies and the Law of Attraction Principles.

If you’re ready, I’ll show you the same techniques that I used. I will walk hand-in-hand with you down the path of self-acceptance, self-love, and self-actualization, so you can be prepared to have the life and love you desire and deserve!
