In-Person, Phone and Video Sessions
My mission as a Life Coach is to empower you to live a life that is authentic, aligned with your goals and values and purpose driven. I believe that everyone has the ability to create and experience positive change that brings success and I am here to support you as you change what is unsatisfactory in your life and move into focused action and accomplishment.
My approach to coaching is rooted in principles of positive psychology, cognitive behavior, neuroplasticity and brain-based coaching and mindfulness. I work collaboratively to help you identify your strengths, overcome current limiting beliefs, and develop practical strategies for achieving both short and long term goals. I believe that coaching is a process of self-discovery, and I am committed to providing a supportive and non-judgmental space for you to overcome challenges and create desirable outcomes easily and effortlessly.
In the realm of positive psychology, the focus is on harnessing the power of positivity and cultivating a growth mindset. Understanding that our thoughts and beliefs shape our reality, I guide you in exploring perspectives and embracing a more optimistic outlook. By emphasizing your strengths rather than weaknesses, we uncover your untapped abilities and create a solid foundation for progress.
Cognitive behavioral techniques play a pivotal role in my coaching approach. This school of thought recognizes the intricate connection between our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Through a collaborative process, I assist you in identifying any negative thinking patterns or limiting beliefs that may be holding you back. Together, we replace these unhelpful patterns with knowing and empowerment and the productive behaviors that align with your goals and aspirations.
Neuroplasticity and Brain-Based Coaching
I leverage neuroplasticity to facilitate lasting change. This concept asserts that the brain has the remarkable ability to rewire and adapt throughout our lives. It is an umbrella term referring to the brain's ability to change, reorganize, or grow neural networks. By utilizing evidence-based strategies and engaging all systems of the brain we can form new neural connections that support your personal growth and development. Through consistent practice and intentional effort, my clients witness the transformative power of neuroplasticity in action.
Mindfulness practices serve as an integral part of my coaching methodology. By cultivating present moment awareness, my clients learn to navigate life's challenges with clarity and composure. Mindfulness allows individuals to tap into their inner wisdom, fostering a greater sense of self-awareness and insight. Through guided meditation, breathwork, and other mindfulness exercises, I empower my clients to live more consciously and make intentional choices in alignment with their goals.
Central to my coaching philosophy is the knowledge that the coaching process is a collaborative and empowering experience. I view myself as a partner to my clients and as such I will provide you with the supportive and non-judgmental space so critical to moving forward with decisions and meaningful change. Together, we co-create practical tools and methods that we tailor-make to your unique needs and preferences. This personalized approach ensures that every step taken towards your goals is both meaningful and easily implemented in your daily life.

We imagine, interpret, and create. We work hard to develop our talents and yet sometimes are too close to our own work to honor the intrinsic value it holds for us. We may even hesitate to seize opportunities that present themselves for expansion and further expression. Don't let set backs snag your progress in sharing what is vital for you and others to experience. A coach can help you navigate frustrating creative blocks and turn disappointment into discovery and creative recognition.
If you wish to improve daily interactions and want confidence you do so while being authentic, and understood, coaching can help. As individuals we connect based on familiarity or common goal, yet inevitably we will encounter differences. Develop improved listening, observation, and communication skills. These skills lead to understanding, appreciation, clear goal setting, and improved partnership and teamwork.
Times of transition are rich with opportunity. Whether we initiate this time of change ourselves or something outside of our control occurs and forces change upon us, it is a time we can use best to set a clear vision of our future self. It is a perfect time to partner with a coach who will help you meet new challenges, notice opportunities, seek resources, and plan and prioritize tasks that are timely and meaningful . When you hire a coach you can take the stress, overwhelm, or uncertainty out of a transition period in your life.
Paramount to our well being and lasting success is knowing how our brains work and how we as an individual think, feel, and act best for our overall well being. Through inquiry and the coaching process, we work to use this knowledge blending a practice of self compassion, self management and self confidence for all we seek to do.
The number and variables of class subjects, homework assignments, and extra curricular activities can often overwhelm the best of students.

The number and variables of class subjects, homework assignments, and extra curricular activities can often overwhelm the best of students. Given an opportunity to explore and know what we do well and how we do it best, will lead to success in all areas of study. This awareness reduces common invasive thoughts of "not enough time" or "not good enough" which can lead to anxiety and/or depression.
When it comes to educational classes and subjects that have little or no immediate interest, it doesn't mean we have come to a dead end. Partnering with a coach for creative exploration will reveal a meaning and connection to the subject for us. Once we connect the course of study to our personal value or need, we can sustain study habits and retain the information we need.
When it comes to test taking, it is not just subject knowledge that determines a successful test score. How we think and feel about taking tests often makes the difference of whether we can access the knowledge we gained during course study and accurately represent our knowledge on the test in the time allotted. Coaching for test taking using emotional regulation skills can make a difference.
