About Take Your Time

Helping people (re)discover their FUN self

As a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist, I have helped hundreds of individuals during the most challenging times of their lives - life junctures. From entering college to retirement, getting married to widowhood, competing professionally to adapting to an acquired injury, I can help you navigate the ins and outs of (re)discovering your FUN self again. But as we (re)learn new things it takes time to adjust - to adapt - to create the habit. I'm here to remind you to Take Your Time.

We often tell young toddlers and older adults to "take your time" as they navigate around obstacles on the ground while trying to stay balanced as they walk. But why don't we encourage others to take their time as they navigate difficult situations in life while also trying to stay balanced? Instead there seems to be a push by individuals and society to figure stuff out quickly and move on.

That's why I have created Take Your Time! Change doesn't happen overnight. It deserves the time it needs to manifest properly.

Since 2007, I’ve been helping individuals and groups (re)discover their FUN self through a series of leisure coaching techniques. As a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist, I use evidence-informed practices to guide each of my clients during moments of life transitions to explore new leisure activities or re-connect to previously enjoyed activities. The process doesn't happen overnight, and I encourage everyone to take their time finding joy and happiness again.

Leisure Coaching

Navigating toward FUN!

Let's face it - we all have had times in our lives in which we felt lost. Either lost in direction or in identity, it is helpful to have someone to navigate through the challenge. Leisure and recreation can be powerful tools to help during those major life transitions that impact who we are.
If you have:
-Moved to a new town (for school, job, etc.)
-Started a new relationship or gotten married
-Become a parent
-Experienced your last child move out of the home
-Retired from your life's work
-Lost someone you deeply cared about through death or divorce
-Acquired an injury

…then it may be time to (re)discover your fun self.

Inclusive Recreation Consultation

Assisting Leisure Service Providers!

As an inclusive recreation consultant, I can provide a thorough assessment of strengths and limitations of leisure service providers' facilities, programs, and services. I focus on helping agencies improve access to facilities, programs and services for all people. Consultation includes an initial meeting for establishing agency needs, a physical examination of inclusivity of the facility, observation of program delivery, interviews with staff and participants, and a recommendations report based on the overall assessment findings.
