Coaching is a collaborative experience that can empower you by learning more about yourself, assessing how well you relate to others, and defining goals and actions that support your personal and professional development.
All coaching clients can expect to receive my full attention, deep listening, and insightful discussions about work and life situations, personal and career aspirations, and “blind spots” that can get in the way of achieving a desired goal. Coaching with me is a safe place to expand your self-awareness and develop personal insights about your goal and the actions you need to take to reach it.
I specialize in coaching clients in the fields of health and human services and higher education, though my coaching approach is broad enough to support the coaching aspirations of clients from other fields. I am especially effective with individuals who are new to coaching or are seeking coaching to develop their professional selves as they step into leadership.
I easily relate to and appreciate working with individuals from diverse backgrounds and life expressions. I am also grounded and comfortable in discussing the role of racial equity and inclusion in the workplace.
MY COACHING PHILOSOPHY
My coaching is informed by the principles of positive psychology, health & wellness, and wholehearted living and I adhere to the ethics and competencies of the International Coaching Federation.
Positive psychology focuses on positive emotions and enhancing personal strengths. Health & wellness principles help us recognize how thoughts, beliefs, and feelings impact the way we work and live. Wholehearted living focuses on the cultivation of courage, compassion, and connection to brave through life’s challenges.
I also offer assessments that give my clients the opportunity to more fully understand their values and talents and to learn how to leverage them to reach personal or professional development goals. Coaching is not therapy and does not carry the stigma some feel when seeking personal or professional advice or assistance.
