I get it! Managing it all can feel like a struggle.
Big decisions can be overwhelming and we find it tough to navigate a new way forward.
Often all it takes is a little space and objectivity to bring clarity. If you are feeling paralized and looking for solutions to big problems, need to empower your leader within and see new possibilities and perspectives that give fresh air to the weight of your responsibilities. Wishing you could create a plan that will move you forward and simply feel inspired and motivated again – I’m here to help!
Through a blend of coaching approaches and analytical tools, I will help you understand what drives your behaviors, identify options that allow you to thrive, and communicate more effectively in all areas of your life. Resulting in a renewed and consistent brand that we know as YOU.
Are you ready to commit to finding your inspiration again and creating a life that works?
Let’s start by taking inventory on where you are NOW, Look at what’s working and what’s not working in every area of your life. This exercise will quickly provide you appreciation and clarity on what is important and where the focus really needs to be placed in order to live in alignment. Before you can move powerfully in your career or any life transition it is crucial to have focus and clarity!
FIND YOUR WHY
LIVE WITH PURPOSE
After a series of our coaching sessions, using assessment tools, and writing exercises you will come away with a better understand on how to live in alignment with your values and purpose. Career and life decisions that once seemed overwhelming and fearful now become a natural course in your daily life. Life will always bring new challenges, yet when you have laid a solid foundation with your core purpose the journey becomes an adventure not a struggle to survive.
What lights you up? In our sessions, we will explore your imagination, I will listen to your stories and can quickly attune to what gets you motivated and connected to your internal navigation system. Identify the disconnects and the resistance you are bumping up against.
You are naturally creative, resourceful and whole – and when you pay attention to these natural inspirations you will discover how much easier it will be to stand in your authenticity. Get your WHY in writing, create a plan, and communicate clearly so that you will bring your vision and goals to a life that works for YOU.
Jump start your new plans with the weekly program. Consistently practicing new behaviors and reinforcing your plan on a weekly basis is proven to be the fastest way to see transformation. With the option of meeting in person or via video/phone session makes this possible even with a busy schedule.
Feeling overwhelmed? Feel like you just can’t get it all done? Then the bi-weekly schedule might be a good fit for you. You still get the benefit of consistency and rhythm of meeting every other week with a little more space between sessions to process and work on suggested action items.
Individual sessions are available to those who are not quite ready to commit to long term or scheduled appointments. They may be utilized as a check in or tune up, or added to any ongoing monthly packages. These sessions may be scheduled on an “as needed” basis and therefore reduce the added worry or stress of your daily life.
My group sessions are an excellent way for you and your team to get the coaching and focus that you’ll need in order to help you succeed. I will customize a 12-week program with your group, which will include exercises to promote your learning and growth. This is a cost-effective way to reach your goals and address your needs.

We always start with your WHY. All behavior is driven by internal needs that serve a purpose. Create a purpose and mission statement that will be your foundation from which all your decisions will come from. This allows you to thrive from a purpose driven space.
ACCESS YOUR BEHAVIORS
A crucial component of creating a life that works for You. With a background in Advertising, I see clearly the similarities in managing a brand and managing your career and/or business. The stakes here are high, this is your life we are talking about.
A brand is founded in core values and purpose. Let’s ensure your image is in alignment across all interfaces and that you are broadcasting a clear and consistent message.
Practice communicating your authentic brand. Whether you are communicating in the conference room or in your living room – it doesn’t have to be a struggle. Work to improve your listening skills as well as
articulating your intentions toward more positive outcomes. Communication includes the internal dialog that you hear constantly. Let’s check in and make sure you are downloading empowering, positive messages that allow you to show up as the leader you want to be.
LOOKING FOR ANSWERS?
What is the difference between coaching and counseling?
Specifically, Counseling is conducted by a professional educated and trained in psychological issues and therapies with a diagnostic quality. Typically counseling is addressing past experiences that have brought about pain and uses a variety of therapeutic techniques for healing those traumas.
Coaching is regulated by the ICF – International Coaching Federation which upholds the integrity of the practice.
Trained and certified coaches offer a “co-active”partnership; present focused and forward thinking, empowering, goal oriented, mindset and strategy work. Coaching is not directive advice or therapy, though it does address specific personal projects and issues, business goals and general situations in the client’s current life & profession. Services include clarification of values, brainstorming, developing a mission and identifying plans of action toward these goals. With clarifying questions and empowering requests, the objective is to bring the client to new awareness and shifts in perspective that bring about sustainable positive change that does not waiver and always comes from within the individual.
My qualifications and certifications
I hold a BA in Advertising and Psychology and CPCC certification from Global CTI, which is regulated by the ICF, – International Coaching Federation. They are the governing body over the coaching industry and requires substantial continuing education to stay current with certification. This ensures the quality and integrity of the practice of coaching.
The journey of my career, businesses and life experiences over the last 25years is what I believe brings tremendous value to my work. There is a saying … “You can’t take a client somewhere you haven’t been”. Well my journey has lead me to many incredible places and challenges I have faced. Here are some of the areas of life that I can offer real first hand perspective:
- Career transitions – new job search to negotiating promotions and leadership opportunities
- Small business ownership – how to start and grow a business from the ground up
- Financial planning – budgeting and strategies for short and long term goals
- Buying and selling real estate – investment properties
- A women’s relationship with money & success
- Marriage and growing careers while starting a family
- Getting through a stressful divorce with young children
- Raising 2 boys as primary parent and single mom
- Addressing challenges such as: ADHD, fear & anxiety
- Health & Wellness Programs – Pilates instructor and studio owner, workshops and retreats.
- Navigating dating as a single parent
- Addressing loved one’s addiction & recovery
How long will the process take?
The timing of the process depends on many factors – seeking a new job, in the middle of a life transition, rising the corporate ladder; whatever the goals these are big changes that take time. However, I can promise you with the effort you put into this work you will begin to reap the benefits weekly and subtly see a shift in your effectiveness with ease. I have witnessed this time and time again and as a guideline I suggest a 3 -6 month commitment to the process.
What results should I expect?
Coaching can bring about significant change “in all areas of your life” as an active participant. I am goal-directed and at every session will bring focus to your goals and work as your advocate and partner to get you there. As your Coach, I am acutely listening, using intuition and focus to your situation. I am able to make connections and pose questions that open up new perspectives while being straightforward and honest about what I see.
Trusted Guide – Advocate – Truth-teller -Champion
In terms of results, I believe that the quality of life is defined by the quality of your relationships. The transformation that my clients realize is not just in their career life but it is a shift in the quality of their relationship with themselves as well as those they hold dear in their life.
