  • Assist you in co-creating actions and inquiries to work on in between sessions

As your coach, I will not:​

  • Diagnose or treat any mental disorder or medical disease

My Coaching Philosophy:

recognize you as creative, competent, and resourceful. 

It is an honor and privilege to witness personal transformation and growth in others. 

Why should you partner with a coach?

If you want to take advantage of an opportunity or challenge, feel “stuck” on the path to achieving your goals, or simply believe there’s something more to discover in your personal or professional life, partnering with a professional coach could benefit you. Coaching clients who responded to the 2017 ICF Global Consumer Awareness Study reported positive coaching impacts including:

  • Improved communication skills

  • Increased self-esteem/self-confidence

  • Increased productivity

  • Optimized individual/team work performance

  • Improved work/life balance Increased well-being

  • Improved business management strategies

  • Expanded professional career opportunities

  • Accelerated on-boarding into a new professional role

What’s your role?

The most successful coaching partnerships begin with a client who has a clear idea of what they want to accomplish and is open to collaboration and new perspectives.

 

As a coaching client, your role is to:

  • Create the coaching agenda based on personally meaningful goals

  • Assume full responsibility for your own decisions and actions

  • Use the coaching process to promote possibility thinking and fresh perspectives

  • Engage big-picture thinking and problem-solving skills

  • Take the tools, concepts, models and principles provided by your coach and engage in effective forward actions
