A Little Bit About Myself

For the past decade, I've been on a mission to empower incredible women to triumph over betrayal, leading over 120 of women to incredible transformations. But I'm not just a coach - I've also walked the walk, applying the very same 5 secret tools to my own life while raising two incredible children. Now, with one of them navigating the waters of fatherhood, I'm proud to say my kids are living happy, healthy, and successful lives. Let's rock this journey together!"

My Mission & Approach

Grace Intel Coaching's mission is to help clients to investigate the meaning of "Grace" and why it is needed to move forward in the process of "complete acceptance around the things we can not change."

"A good Intellectual Wellness coach helps their clients examine their own relationship with their own choices they make." -Delanna Hess, CCA, NLM


Basic Skills of a Grace Coach.


I don’t have an answer for everything, no not everything, but I do have a lot of experience with  seeking Intellectual Wellness, Psychology, Coaching, Recovery, Restoration, Reconciliation, Mindset, Small Groups, Betrayal, Trauma Informed Care and more but that is a good description to start with.

Intellectual Wellness.

My own personal life journey has depended on two key elements that have led me to the  Intellectual Wellness Coaching field.  

  1. The first is my own wrestling with my faith in Jesus and the efforts I have made to understand His place in my life and how much He loves and accepts me no matter how messy my life gets.  
  2. The second is the development of intellectual wellness-( which is being able to think logically and identify emotions and feelings and assess from a neutral perspective  throughout my journey of basic recovery from my own hurts, habits, and hang-ups)

Along my journey in both key areas,  I have had the need to seek wise counsel through counselors, sponsors, mentees,  small group sessions, recovery rooms, trial and error, face plant failures when being open to new ways of processing/growing in life, trusting again  and learning a new definition of  trust when betrayed.  

  • My experience has been through studying Psychology, NeuroScience, Coaching, Recovery and the 12 STEPS, plus Restoration, Reconciliation, Mindset adjustments, Small Groups, Betrayal, Trauma Informed Care and more.
