Custom Individual Coaching
Are you suffering from burnout, feeling helpless and stuck in your life or career?
Do you feel like you are being held back by someone or something in your personal or professional life?
Would you like to replace frustration, confusion and stress with peace, fulfillment and balance in all aspects of your life?
Do you know you want a change, have a business idea you want to bring to life, but aren’t sure what direction to take, or how to go about it?
“There are two ways to live your life. One is though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
Coaching Unlocks Potential
I work with people who prioritize leadership, sustainability and communication including:
• Mid to senior-level managers and executives including small and medium-size business owners
• Physicians and healthcare professionals working within a hospital setting, community or private practice
• Individuals embarking on a new stage in life (career change, promotion, starting a business, retirement, empty nest etc.)
Each coaching relationship is unique and begins with the assertion that people are naturally creative and resourceful. It involves meeting clients where they are, listening on many levels, powerful questions, trust and intuition to evoke transformation.
Coaching feels like a 100% focused “re-charging conversation” for clients to tap into the energy they need to move forward and bring out the best in themselves and others. Co-Active Coaching is valuable to any personal or professional change initiative.
My flexible Custom Coaching Programs and one-off Clarity Coaching sessions are designed to meet you where you are and achieve the results that you want in all aspects of your life and career. Leadership Assessment & Development is my specialty.

I’m moving through my life with much less anxiety and newfound self confidence
“Our coaching sessions have taught me skills to make clear and rational decisions rather than ones based on emotional conditioning. I am now moving through my life with much less anxiety and newfound self confidence that has me hoping for the best rather than always expecting the worst. This enables me to say “yes” when I used to mostly say “no” out of fear of failing or rejection. You have given me a great gift and I am so grateful.”
“Self-sabotage is when we say we want something and then go about
making sure it doesn’t happen.”

Confidentiality is an imperative for each coaching relationship. As an ICF-Accredited, Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC, PCC), I adhere to the International Coaching Federation (ICF) Code of Ethics and core competencies which protects clients and serves to uphold the integrity of ICF and the global coaching profession.
