Meet Coach Iris, Your Change Champion & Stop Suffering Sorceress

Welcome! I help people with Life Stage, Family and Relationship Changes. I know a lot about grief, about being a caregiver, and about being in the Sandwich Generation also.

I want to challenge you to put down that big box of pain, fear and dissatisfaction that you’re been carrying around. I will help you navigate the rough waters and come out better than before, regardless of how painful and disappointing things have been.

Find your new normal. Start building a future full of sparkling hope, peace and new direction. Let me help you to stop suffering, and to start succeeding at whatever it is you dream about.

I have been through life’s wringer, but have come out of it with new energy, strengths and commitment. I can help you do that too.

Are you struggling through loss and grief? Are you a widow, a widower, or dealing with any other type of loss? Are you living through a really tough life change, or do you want to make a change? Would you like to find the self that has been lost over the years? Do you want to find your true purpose, as you enter a new life stage? Perhaps you hope to find or to improve a relationship?

How would it feel if you were easily able to greet the unexpected with curiosity and excitement, rather than with fear or sadness?

Let's talk about how I can help you.

There are very few people I trust and respect enough to share my deepest and darkest feelings with. Sharing isn’t exactly the easiest thing for me. Iris is someone I truly trust and respect and enough so that I’m able to let my guard down and actually open up and talk. She has a unique View Full →

We lost two child referrals and we were furious with our agency. We didn’t know what to do.  Iris worked with us to support us, to examine how flexible we could be in the type of child we could handle. She helped us with our grief over these losses.  Nobody else seemed to understand since View Full →

The Federal Trade Commission requires website owners who display testimonials to say that each person's experiences and results are unique to them. What you will achieve from coaching entirely depends on your goals, your openness with Coach Iris, and the degree of effort you contribute to the coaching process.

Due to the individual nature of your motivation, skills, and willingness to engage in new ways of thinking, Coach Iris can make no guarantees about your personal outcome.
