I want you to dream your biggest dreams and then to materialize them throughout your life: work, health, relationships, and more.
Our collaboration will be inspiring, it will be liberating, and — let's be honest — it will be hard work. But when we finish, your life will be in line with your values, and you will have new strategies and techniques to use on your own in all your future challenges.
Let's make it happen.
Coaching can be particularly useful before, after, or during times of transition — a job change, a relationship shift, a health challenge. If you are up for being held accountable, for shining light into dark corners, for trying out some new ways to do things, for seeing what happens as you experiment, coaching may be just what you want. I am here with you to investigate your goals, your dreams, your beliefs.
Life coaching is a goal-oriented way to start from today and move into tomorrow.
Coaching is different from consulting: I am here to show you your own strengths, not to demonstrate mine. You are the expert on your life, after all!
Coaching is also different from therapy: I am trained to help you discover and grow the life you want, rather than helping you discover how you got to the place you are currently in.
My clients have:
When you embark on a coaching adventure with me, I ask you to commit to either:
We start with one long call, and then we have shorter (30-45 minute) calls for the duration of our work. Between sessions, you work to integrate the outcome of our sessions into your life. To support your solo work, my coaching also includes unlimited emails/texting between calls.
Make no mistake: this investigation can be a personally demanding process. Like many things in life, the more time and energy you put into coaching, the more you get out of it. It can feel intimidating to jump into the deep end of making big changes in your life. But if you devote yourself to it, you can improve your entire life, starting right now!
My work as a life coach invites all your perspectives, assumptions, and mental habits to come and play. I use metaphor, movement, and open-ended questions to help you see yourself in a new light, one that shows you as you truly are. We design work for you to do between sessions that helps you develop new strategies and thought patterns to support you in achieving your goals. My goal is to help you find the means to thrive on whatever path you happen to be on in a given moment, for the rest of your life.
We collaborate throughout the coaching process, with frequent check-ins about how your work is going, taking one step at a time toward your goals. When our work is done, you graduate into the sustainable life you have created!
Along with being a life coach, I am or have been: a nationwide consultant specializing in productivity and organization; director of a learning support program within a high school; general manager of a theater company; recruiting manager for a tech company; a student in oceanography, chemistry, and special education (not all at the same time); a science and math tutor; a yoga teacher of various styles (Kripalu, restorative, prenatal).
These days, I live with my husband and our dog on Vashon Island in the Pacific Northwest, not far from Seattle. I am an advisor and a workflow consultant for a varying roster of smart, inspiring clients, and I am fortunate enough to mentor new life coaches as they complete their training and certification.
