"You have taught me to believe in myself and to take things slowly, one step at a time, keep sight of my goals, both short term and long term.

Your coaching style was both nuturing and motivating, you seemed to intuitively know some days what I needed most. Your caring and understanding was so appreciated and it came from the heart."

-Holly C.

I would recommend the Simplicity Course as an easy, practical way to start simplifying one's life. I especially liked the segments on Tolerations, Wardrobe, and Office and Paperwork.

Each day focuses on only one task, which is helpful to people who feel overwhelmed by the complexities of modern life and hardly know where to begin downshifting.

-Joan, New York

Beth has an uncanny way of, "reading between the lines" to see a person's heart. I appreciate how genuine she is.

I have already begun implementing her suggestions, and am dumbstruck at how well they are working. I am feeling so much more secure, and feel I am finally put onto a life path that will bring me joy for many years to come."

-Sue Halpern

I feel more focused and have an objective instead of aimlessly filling up the day.

-Shelli Segura



About Beth


Free Session


I love life and want everyone else to love life, too. My goal is to live juicy, as one of my inspirations, SARK, says. I've always had a drive to be the best me possible. I've lost weight after the kids and have been exercising regularly for years. Since I came into marriage with no idea how to organize or keep house, I've learned and put into practice systems that keep me from having to try to be organized. The systems do it for me as long as I work the systems.

I work hard, but I love to have fun, too. I've had to learn how to take care of myself and relax. I've overcome procrastination and perfectionism. o.k. I should say I am making progress with these.

I believe in persistence and having a good mind set. If you think quality thoughts you go much further than with negative thinking. I am positive, but also practical. One of the biggest difficulties my clients have, is with time. As in, there isn't enough of it. We work through time management systems and ideas, but most importantly we uncover what is the most important things for them to be doing. I coach people searching for something more in their life while releasing what they no longer need. I long for others to find the peace in their life that I have.

I am an encouraging, sensitive coach. I desire excellence from my clients, but my goal is to get them out from overwhelm, not overwhelm them more. I'm more quiet & thoughtful and I like to listen.

I began my career after college as a receptionist, writer for the newspaper and published freelance writer. In 1997, I wanted to stay home with my two kids. I decided I needed a hobby so I didn't lose myself in motherhood.

I taught myself web design and graphic design and started Sweet Petite's Haven. I was writing articles for things I was interested in:organizing, personal development, creativity, etc. Little did I know that I would get a following of people who were also interested. I was getting questions for advice often. At the same time I became a community leader for Geocities, helping people with their web pages.

Once both kids went to school, I charged into the work force as a graphic designer. It fed my creativity, but the fast pace was hard on me and I didn't feel the passion.

2 years later I discoverd the career of coaching. I quickly thought- hey, that's what I already do. This is what I love. I took classes, read tons and started my coaching business.

A few of my favorite things:
listening to music, playing my piano or keyboard and singing
nature hikes, zoos, watching the birds at my bird feeder
playing with my energetic cat,
Thomas and my lively kids
scrapbooking, photography, writing
going to the beach with my hubby
researching my ancestory through genealogy

I believe in living life fully and creating the life I want. I've been interviewed by Woman's World magazine. I am a charter certified Family Manager Coach. I am a member of Coachville and a LandMark Education Graduate. I am licensed to teach the Extreme Self Care Program to individuals and to groups. I am a member of 24-7 Coaching, Distinctely Divas and IAC. I am also a Kids Hope Mentor, tutoring a 1st grader. I have a double major in English and Communications from Hope College in Holland, Michigan. I am also a former mentor with Flylady before she created her e-mail list.
