Certified Life Coach
I work with people who are in career or life transition who want to embrace change and plan their next steps from a position of strength.
What type of coaching do you offer and to whom?
As a Life and Business Coach, I work with people who are in transition who want to embrace change and plan their next steps from a position of strength. Whether it is a career change; re-invention after downsizing/retirement; or starting a new business, I work as a Trusted Advisor to help people create possibilities for themselves wherever they are on their life’s journey.
Why did you get into coaching? What motivates you?
I was a marketing executive for an international company for many years and one of my greatest joys and accomplishments was mentoring my staff and colleagues and watching them grow and develop professionally and personally. I like helping people to see their own potential and create a vision for themselves and what is important to them in their life and put plans into action to create a life they love.
What differentiates you from other coaches?
I like working with people who are in transition because I have experienced many significant life changes myself in a short period of time and feel that I can draw on my own knowledge to help my clients. I am a strategic thinker and can brainstorm ideas to help clarify their goals. The majority of my coaching is done over the phone which makes scheduling regular, consistent calls more convenient for my clients which is critical to achieve successful outcomes.
What values are important to you when working with clients?
I think it is important to really listen to what clients are saying. Intuitively we all know what is best for us and sometimes we just need to have someone to help us clarify our vision so that we can focus our energies on what we want to accomplish. I like how my clients consider me part of their team of trusted people who will help motivate and inspire them to make the changes they want to make.
What do you do for fun?
I enjoy listening to live music, walking and exploring sights in and around Western Mass. I love spending time with friends and my family; it’s always chaotic and fun and energizing at the same time.
