MS, CAGS Counseling Psychology
I work with individuals and groups facing challenges or transitions to help them develop resiliency skills and use them to regain a balanced and more satisfying life
What type of coaching do you offer and to whom?
My orientation of coaching uses skills of resiliency such as discovery of character strengths, mindfulness, and creation of positive thinking habits to help clients or groups bounce back from life’s challenges and make the changes that lead to greater satisfaction and happiness. I believe passionately that these skills can be taught and learned no matter what stage of life a person is in.
Why did you get into coaching? What motivates you?
As a coach, workshop facilitator, and faculty member in higher education for the past 20 years, I have witnessed firsthand how much resiliency matters-both in my own life and in the lives of the clients and groups with whom I have worked. I have seen real transformation in my clients as they realize that they have the ability to face life’s challenges and to use these skills to actually make positive and meaningful change.
What differentiates you from other coaches?
My training in how to help people develop and use the skills of resiliency brings an added dimension to the coaching that I do with individuals and groups. I have learned through my own resiliency practice, especially those that help shine the light on my strengths, that I can make changes in my life that lead me to greater happiness.
What values are important to you when working with clients?
Whether I am teaching, coaching, or facilitating workshops what is most important to me is respect for each person’s unique ways of looking at the world. I strive to always act with integrity, compassion, guided by a strong belief in people’s ability to make positive changes in their lives.
