Coach With Compassion
I value growth and results. I chose to pursue a Masters in Counseling Psychology because I have a passion for people and am energized when others understand and appreciate all they were created to be. My 25+ years experience helping others and working with counselors and therapists myself, taught me what techniques do and do not produce best results. The most exciting outcomes in my life happened when I began working with a Results Coach. I love coaching because I focus on what works instead of what hasn't worked in the past.
My approach centers on who and where you are right now. I believe you were created with gifts and talents specific to the life you are intended for. Humans are skilled at reminding one another of the treasure we are, the resilience we possess, and the tools necessary to live in our peak states. I will help you re-learn the loveliness inside you that may have been forgotten.
It’s never too late to create a beautiful life, for you and those you love.

Is Coaching For You?
How are Coaching and Therapy different?
The International Coach Federation (ICF) defines coaching as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.”
Coaches are trained to listen, to observe, and to customize their approach to individual client needs. Coaches provide support by strategically enhancing the clients' natural resourcefulness and creativity.
Coaching is about growth. It is not about healing. Generally, coaching is best suited for people who are either at a level of pain that has made change a must, or are already thriving and want help moving to the next level.
By introducing new approaches and using powerful questions, coaches move clients toward growth. A good coach prompts clients to listen to and express the true desires of their hearts.
A Coach will listen for and focus on the gap between where a client is and where they want to be.
There is a difference between wanting to grow, and wanting to be fixed. If you desire to make a lasting, positive transformation in your life, coaching will benefit you. If you are seeking healing, therapy may be a better option.
