Coaching happens in a safe and judgment-free dialogue between the client and the professional coach. Within that safe space, we quiet the outer voices and focus only on what matters to you. As your coach, I help you understand your value system and preferences in order to unleash the vision and courage to define your personal goals - whether they are for your life, your career, or your legacy. My clients find it helpful to step away from the busyness of their lives to reflect and be curious about what could be. As a coach, I listen deeply and offer new perspectives to explore.
Coaching is transformational because it creates more awareness and thus more choices. Together, we define your very own path to pursue your dreams. For some clients it is about moving away from unhealthy relationships, for others it is creating more joy and engagement in their work. It's about both the small and the big changes in life. Don’t wait to start defining what that means for you and moving toward it!
“Coaching is a profession that has synthesized the best from business, psychology, communications, mentoring, counseling, consulting, sports, philosophy, spirituality and finance. A coach challenges you and takes the time to find out what a winning life means to you. A coach focuses on the skills you need today, in order to create what you want now and for your future, versus focusing on your past and how it is affecting you.”
