Stress Management coaching for a happier, healthier more fulfilling life!


People Can't Drive You Crazy If You Don't Give Them The Keys - Mike Bechtle

In our cardiac rehab program there is a video entitled "The Joy of Stress," which reminds us of the healing power of laughter.  If you are looking for practical ways to stop being a victim of other people's craziness and enjoying a good laugh along the way, this book is for you.  

Mr. Bechtle shows you how to stay sane while using proven strategies to handle crazy people.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and so did all those I gave a copy to!  You will want to buy at least two copies!


“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.”~ Confucius

Over the years people have shared valuable information and insights which were not just meant for me to keep  to myself. I believe we are meant to pass along to others what was graciously shared with us. Would love to hear what has inspired you on your life's path.

Resources & Inspiration


"One" - by Danna Faulds

Within us lies the answers to our deepest questions and the antidote for all our fears. The divine is not an abstraction - it's as clear and intimate as a heartbeat or whisper.

We are penetrated, suffused, caressed, cell by cell and synapse by synapse, with the same love that set the galaxies to spinning.

No matter how identified we've become with mind and body, we can release the thoughts that blind us to the truth. Seek the still point where the words "you" and "I" lose meaning, where we meet and merge as One. 

From the book entitled Go In and In.  

Danna Faulds is a long-term practitioner and teacher of Kripalu Yoga.

The Healing Self - by Deepak Chopra, MD & Rudolph E. Tanzi, Ph.D.

"A revolutionary New Plan to Superharge Your Immunity and Stay Well for Life." 

I've followed Deepak Chopra since first seeing him on the Merv Griffin show. Some of you may remember Merv as one of the first television host to have suffered a heart attack.  

I've read many of Deepak Chopra's books, listened to his guided meditations, and was fortunate to hear him lecture when he visited Roanoke.  

His latest book sheds light on the affects of  stress on the immune system and a person's susceptibility to diseases  and shows us that our first line of healing lies inside us.     The authors provide a holistic and transformative health plan for life and is one you will refer to often. 


The Heart Speaks - Mimi Guarneri, M.D.,FACC

Dr. Guarneri is a cardiologist who became founder and medical director of Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine.   She eloquently explores the frontiers of heart disease beyond the physical.  

"In The Heart Speaks, Dr. Mimi Guarneri reveals groundbreaking new research that the heart is a multilayered, complex organ, possessing intelligence, memory, and decision-making abilities independent from the mind—and that healing the heart can have more to do with healing the mind and soul than we ever knew."

Through her compelling memoir we see that it is only by knowing the whole heart—its mental, emotional, spiritual, and universal aspects—that we can truly heal."

A must read for both men and women and everyone in the healing profession.
