For 24+ years, I have actively inspired and empowered others to live better lives. As a coach, I bring my expertise as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). Most of my years spent counseling and consulting were in the Employee Assistant Program (EAP) field, where I helped employees, managers and executives reach their goals.
Over the past 9 years, I have embraced coaching as a second career. I’m fortunate to have worked with clients from all levels of management up to senior leaders in such companies as Morgan Stanley, Genentech - a member of the Roche Group, Zoom, Amgen, eBay and five Fortune 50 companies. I absolutely love helping people find the external and internal resources they need to blossom in their life.
As a result of my 16 years teaching a holistic fitness practice, Nia, I discovered the importance of listening to the body. This practice, education and increased awareness of how important mindfulness and movement is for overall well-being gives me additional knowledge to support others on their wellness path.
Three words that describe my coaching style are: Learn, Trust, Empower. It is important to me to create a welcoming and safe environment in which you can explore your options without impediment. Coaching is a collaborative relationship that enables you to create momentum by building on your strengths and unlocking new ones. I ask powerful questions to support you in: uncovering your truth, gaining a full understanding of your situation and acting on your goals. At times, I may offer my views on your circumstances. Other times, I may make requests that prove to be quite challenging. I may ask you to use experiential tools to develop skills. Assessment and other measurement tools may be used to evaluate your baseline and give evidence to progress.
I am excited and honored to support you on your journey. I look forward to helping you create an environment that promotes the most excellent life you can have!
When I'm not coaching, I race sailboats, enjoy soul line dance, hike, and spend precious time with my loving husband, two bright and creative children and one brave rescue dog.
