My Coaching Method (Click to view)

My favorite aspect of coaching is working with you just as you are right now. I believe you are creative, resourceful, and whole, and you bring all of you into your life, relationships and work.

Working from home with confidence, fulfillment, and joy can be done while maintaining life balance and quality relationships. To help you achieve this, I give you the practical tools, strategies, and habit starters you need to transform into an even better version of you, for a life and work that you love.

I use a holistic approach that may include:

  • NLP, Goal Imagery
  • Education theory; adult psychological development levels
  • Personality
  • Character Strengths
  • Core Values
  • Communication strategies, reflective practice, and journaling
  • Understanding Happiness, Happiness by Design, and Positive Psychology
  • Habits by Design
  • Neuroscience approaches
  • Emotional Intelligence, leadership principles
  • Analyzing, goal setting, planning, and accountability strategies
  • Supplementary educational materials
  • Additional strategies based on your goals

This personalized and adaptive approach makes professional growth possible, and more importantly, it also develops your purpose and confidence in all areas.

I’m in your corner to help you navigate challenges, overcome obstacles, and thrive.

How it Works (Click to view)

Coaching and being coached have completely changed my life, both as a professional and a person. And I love helping you design a personalized road-map to access your motivators, strengths, roadblocks, goals, and solutions, step by step.

Imagine someone who would like to learn to play a musical instrument. One might first begin by taking 1:1 lessons, then join an ensemble like band or orchestra.

In the same way, coaching is like taking strategic 1:1 lessons to bring out your best and use helpful tools to learn any new strategies needed. You could spend hours, years, and a lifetime growing as a musician; and it’s no surprise that we need to keep growing as adults throughout our lives just this same way.

Coaching is like music lessons for the spirit, heart, and mind. And group coaching can be like joining a band, where you learn and grow with other like-minded people, and share your own contributions as well.

Before establishing a coaching agreement, we meet for an initial consultation to determine whether we’d like to work together. Next, individual coaching sessions are conducted over ZOOM calls during a 30-45 minute time, scheduled when we can both be available, typically once weekly or bi-weekly. A coaching duration of 3-6 months is recommended for maximum benefit.

For group coaching, group coaching sessions are conducted over ZOOM calls at a designated time as specified in the group coaching class agreement. Group calls are recorded and shared privately with group participants, so that a participant who might miss the session can stay engaged and make progress despite time conflicts.

Your growth and development, and our conversations are confidential, and I follow the ICF Code of Ethics.

My Mission

“I am passionate about helping you reclaim your power and purpose while working from home, so you can live with confidence, fulfillment, and joy.”

I help online professionals, coaches, and educators experience personal development and transformation to reclaim power and purpose, so they can live with confidence, fulfillment and joy. It’s a journey to become the best version of ourselves, and we’re all in this together.

I believe that clarity about one’s core values and strengths are the key to becoming the best version of one’s self. Get clear on who you are and what sets you apart, and you can thrive by joyfully bring your whole self to life, relationships, and work.

Fail to align within yourself and your work performance will suffer, your anxiety will increase, and you will experience more challenging relationships and overwhelm with decreasing resilience and fulfillment.

I have devoted the past 25 years of my professional life to mastering the arts of individual learning and  growth, aligning with clear purpose and direction, and meeting individual needs through sound educational theory and practices. What I’ve discovered is that there are tried and true principles to overcoming the challenges of the past and making lasting changes that bring authentic confidence and transformation that have worked in the past, work today, and will continue to help people develop into the future.

Although the lingo may change, the principles of transformation consistently hold true. There are quick-fix ideas in personal and professional growth that come and go, and trends that seem attractive for a time. Trendy approaches will continue to change, but the strategies behind the approaches will remain the same.

You’ll make the most of our time together by applying principles and strategies based on neuroscience, education theory and practices, and mindset approaches strategically designed to bring out your best. We will design a roadmap for growth tailored to your own unique values and strengths, leveraging practical tools. My clients repeatedly tell me that our work together has been life changing, and their results are obvious. If now is the right time to begin your coaching journey, contact me through the “work with me” link.
