My Philosophy. The very short version.
I believe life is about:
- Joy and ease, not struggle.
- Acceptance, not pushing against.
- Wanting, not needing.
- Innate wisdom and wellbeing, which trumps thought and opinions.

My work with clients is guided by the Three Principles of Mind, Thought, and Consciousness. Learn more about the Three Principles here.
Who am I?
I am a social psychologist, master certified coach, author and public speaker.
I have taught university-level psychology, consulted on several high-profile court cases, spoken to audiences around the country about success and happiness, and sailed around the world.
I work with clients all over the world via telephone and online coaching programs. If you’re interested in learning more about the outside-in nature of life and getting out of your own way so that you can have a more joyful experience on this planet, I can help. I’d love to help.
I am the author of Modern Enlightenment: Psychological, Spiritual, and Practical Ideas for a Better Life and the co-author of Changes of the Heart: Martha Beck Life Coaches Share Strategies for Facing Life Challenges.
I’m a regular expert on The Steve Harvey Show and am often interviewed by the Wall Street Journal , Self Magazine, and Oprah.com.
I’m also the wife of a Green Bay Packer fanatic. I’m the mom of a very energetic three year old girl and a freakishly strong infant boy. I’m into coffee and traveling and documentaries and library books and sleeping through the night. I’m a 7 on the Enneagram and a Myers-Briggs INFP. My Style Statement is Sophisticated Bohemian.
