“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals”

~ Henry David Thoreau

Individual Coaching

Personal, Professional and Leadership Coaching – You can achieve virtually any goal you set for yourself, be it in the professional and leadership realm or the personal sphere.

I help transform dynamic women into confident leaders. I also work with both executives and aspiring or established managers to more fully develop their skills and navigate challenges. I now also work with retired women who are ready to find more purpose and happiness in their lives.

Group and Team Coaching and Facilitation

Group and Team Coaching can be a cost effective alternative to having your own personal coach. Groups can be arranged on various topics.

When your group seems stuck and needs a new approach, I can help you see alternatives and generate new energy through effective facilitation. I can help you plan your next virtual event or meeting so that the experience is compelling and meaningful.

Positive Intelligence (PQ) Mental Fitness Coaching

Mental fitness is just like physical fitness; for the best results you must practice. This enables shifts in mindset that allow you to thrive in challenging times.

I will guide you through the Positive Intelligence (PQ) program and help you build your mental fitness muscles for lasting happiness and success.


Personality and Strengths Assessments

Learn about your personality attributes and strengths, and how they impact how you show up at work and in life.

I am certified to facilitate the Emotional & Social Competency Inventory (ESCI) from Korn Ferry, which helps clients identify opportunities to improve their emotional intelligence.

I believe that individual strengths are the basis for success. Let’s discover yours.

    Personalized Coaching

    What is coaching?

      Coaching provides a safe and confidential space in which we can creatively explore new ways of thinking and moving forward. Coaching is all about collaborating to discover your best self and your best path forward.

      In working with me, you will focus on the most critical issues starting on day one.

      Check out the International Coaching Federation for more information about how coaching works.

      Questions you may have:

      How will we know where to start?

      We will clarify your values and vision as it relates to the success you seek. We will look at this both short and long term.

      What if I've tried everything and nothing works?

      We will collaborate to identify your fears and limiting beliefs so that you can let them go and move forward.

      What if I'm out of ideas?

      We will work together to discover new possibilities and unleash your inherent creativity.

      Will it stick?

      I will help you design ways to take action, be motivated and accountable for your own progress. This creates long-lasting change.

      How my strengths show up.

      “Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

      ~ Mary Oliver

      Success and happiness are achieved by focusing on strengths. Mine are:

      Genuine - I am… honest, sincere, self-assured, and a truth teller and seeker with a strong inner compass.

      I value serving others. I am a long-time volunteer for the Burning Man Project and I’ve served in many roles including Black Rock Ranger where I learned compassion for those needing support. I was also trained and volunteered as an advocate for survivors of domestic violence in my hometown, which taught me that people thrive when they receive support to obtain their overarching goals.

      Curious - I am… open, optimistic, committed to personal growth, and invigorated by what is possible.

      I believe in everyone’s ability to learn and change. I have been an artist all my life, but I began oil painting in 2007 when I decided to pull out some oil paints I had inherited from my grandmother 30 years prior. I loved it and haven’t stopped since. I amaze myself every time I create a beautiful painting because I didn’t start until I was in my 40’s. It’s never too late to try new things!

      Energized - I am... motivated by turning thoughts into action, a self-starter with drive, stamina and perseverance.

      I loved living in Santa Cruz, California and have been an avid scuba diver and ocean sailor over the years. I even once sailed all the way across the Pacific Ocean from Hawaii to Victoria, BC! If you’re not sure you can do something, make a plan and go for it…

      Creative - I am… strategic, a big picture thinker and pattern finder.

      For me, this includes having a growth mindset, and with that mindset, anything is possible. We must all be mindful of where we are now and where and what we want to be. I learned mindfulness many years ago while a member of the Ann Arbor Buddhist Temple and my life was changed forever.

      My Approach

      I believe that every person is brilliant in their own way and comes to the table fully capable of solving their problems. People thrive when they have the opportunity to explore options and safely stretch themselves beyond their limiting beliefs.

      I provide that confidential safe space where you can come up for a breath of fresh air and clear your head. We will practice growing your mental fitness so you can move forward and thrive.
