Coaching inspires me! In my career, I have coached more than 150 clients—it is an honor to work with people and a delight to see them succeed on their own terms. I am deeply committed to helping people to grow beyond self-defeating habits and tap into possibility and inner resources to create positive change in their lives. And the process itself is enlivening. Coaching embraces what is and what is possible.
I work with professional women who want better work/life balance or who are in management positions and want to develop mindful leadership. I coach creative clients who need help getting through stuck spots so that they can go forward with vision and inspiration. I partner with those in life transitions to find solid ground within themselves and move ahead. I help people to change limiting habits (e.g. poor listening, overuse of internet) and to build new helpful habits and competencies (e.g. health-related behaviors, emotional intelligence). My clients also see wonderful side effects such as being more present and practicing greater kindness toward themselves, which creates positive ripple effects through many aspects of their lives.
I’d enjoy talking with you about what’s on your mind and exploring the possibility of coaching together!
