About Coaching About Coach Bobbee Home

I have taken so many different paths in my life and so many times I was lost. Like anyone else, there have been a number of crisis throughout my life. Each has made me stronger than the one before. I have learned to gain strength from old wounds and use that strength in determining the road ahead. But the one that led me here was the behavior of my then 16 year old son, Danny. It was through his choices that I found what I was looking for. My path. My passion.

My decision to send my son to a boarding school for troubled teens was the beginning of a new life for my whole family. The program I chose was one that involved the whole family. At the start, I was required to attend seminars on self-discovery. I went into that kicking and screaming. After all, I already knew all I needed to know and if only my son would get his act together, we could all go on to be a happy family. Ok, I was dillusional.  Maybe ignorance is bliss, but I wasn’t feeling very blissful at the time. As the seminars went on, I found that I was not so reluctant to be there. Towards the end, I couldn’t wait for the next one. Which eventually brought me here.

My son graduated that program in July 2004. He acquired a new sense of self-confidence and self-awareness that I had not thought possible in the beginning. My younger two teens are also reaping the rewards here. They are maturing into whole, happy, productive adults. I believe they are thriving in an environment rich with compassion, communication, and love.

I went on to support other parents of teens-at-risk and found that I really had learned the things I needed to know to move ahead in my life. The art of learning from the past, rather than wallowing in regret about it. For me, each day is a new opportunity to understand my world and the worldviews of the people around me. There’s always more to learn, of course. I know enough to know that I want to know more, feel more, and be more. I have come to a place of peace and self-love and understanding of who I am and who I want to become. I have come to understand that life is a series of choices that I make for myself and the only thing getting in the way of following my dreams was….me.

And so I became a Certified Performance Coach (CPC). Then I went onto become a Certified Family Coach (CFC). I have also trained with Tim Kelley and Marcia Wieder. These, along with a Masters Degreebin Management has given me the education and experiences that I sought to assist other families and individuals.
