What is Coaching?
My Personal Definition of Coaching: A collaboration with the client to generate a conversation that creates a context for creativity and insight, which empowers and enables the client to become who and what they want to be in the world.

How does 1:1 coaching work?
We meet over the phone or video chat for 30-60 minutes for a number of sessions over a period of time. You determine your long term goals for working together and the goals for each session. Using mindfulness, best coaching practices, and Positive Psychology tools, that I introduce and you approve, we tap into your own resourcefulness and inner wisdom. You will have new insights and ideas as to what you want to do next and how you will move towards your goals.
“The human soul doesn’t want to be advised or fixed or saved. It simply wants to be witnessed — to be seen, heard and companioned exactly as it is.”
“I am successful to the degree that who I am and what I live are in alignment. In getting to this place of alignment, one thing is clear: The quality of our lives is largely determined by the quality of the questions we ask – and the quality of our answers.”
