Coach Profile

For the past 10 years, I've worked with people just like you dealing with changes at home or at work. Today's women and men face transitions in career, family, parenting, intimate relationships, adult dating, time management and re-discovering meaningful purpose in their lives. If you're like most people, transition and change can leave you with some fear and doubt and you are searching for some friendly support.

I've commonly been called "the last resort" coach for overweight people who desperately want to lose weight but have lost motivation to reach their goals and enjoy a skinny life. After struggling with obesity for 20 years and losing 100 lbs. myself, I have a highly developed understanding of the cycle of overweight and believe that weight loss is a side effect of getting to the root of the problem. I help individuals understand why we hurt, how we heal and what we must do differently to achieve permanent freedom from overweight.

My Coaching Style is engaging, straightforward and lighthearted. I am not afraid to ask the tough questions mixed with empathy and light humor. You will leave your sessions feeling good about yourself, with fresh ideas and courage to face the challenges at hand, and you will find practical solutions that are true to your values. We will use specifically tailored exercises, broken down into do-able steps that will assist you making the changes you've always wanted to make in a relatively short amount of time.


Shelly is a 5-star Life Coach! Shelly has coached me over a period of many months now. She helped me to recognize an issue I had been struggling with for the past two years. Shelly helped me to recognize the problem, take responsibility for it, and make changes. The effect in my personal, as well as professional life has been profound. The two biggest changes? Peace and Happiness! Client- M.J.

Last year, I was feeling completely demoralized about my life and myself. Working with Shelly, put my issues in perspective, helped me establish goals, and allowed me to move forward with a positive attitude. With her help, I was able to lose 20 lbs., build up my self-esteem, and work on creating a network of friends and colleagues to help me move forward in a healthy, positive fashion. Shelly works miracles! Client C.I.

Shelly is a particularly gifted and trustworthy Life Coach. I am in a much better place than I have been for many years and can confidently recommend Shelly as being compassionate, fair, honest in her assessment, hard working, and intelligent. I really hate to think about where I would be today if it were not for Shelly's skill as a life coach and her personal integrity in helping me. Client- T. M.

Shelly has compassion for each and every situation that can occur in your life. Shelly's natural enthusiasm is well suited to coaching. Her spirit, while infectious and inspiring to me, is balanced by her desire to see people through not only the victories, but also the ROUGHEST patches of their lives. Isn't that when most seek help? Shelly empowers you in an intuitive way for positive change that sets you free to live with joy and intention. Client-R.O.
