About Barbara

I learned to take manageable steps of self-care doing my work as a business consultant and coach. I’ve worked in high tech, biotech, telecom, manufacturing, and non-profits as a senior business analyst, manager, and director of business planning. I enjoy using my tools, experience, and insight to inspire people to move toward richer self-expression, self-care, and business success. I collaborate with women business owners, as well as with professional women working for others, to improve their relationships personally and professionally.

I also worked as a therapist and have an M.A. in Psychology – Marriage Family Therapy.  I am a licensed Marriage Family Therapist in Washington.   Using my background in business and psychology, I consult with and coach women toward improved personal and professional happiness and success.  I take care of myself by doing what I enjoy;  I love hiking with my dogs and family, biking, painting, and practicing qigong and kung fu.
