and visions to life.

LOOKING FOR JOY AND EASE
Caught in 100 mile winds?
My coaching mentors have shown me how to find playfulness in challenges. Having been known for "taking things seriously," coaching has brought relief & joy while embracing the challenge. Though not always "comfortable," the lightheartedness in coaching is surprisingly sweet and accessible.
I am a curious, life-loving person who is forever practicing and testing ways to navigate the challenges and mysteries of life.
I am currently working toward my Associate Certified Coach (ACC) Credential through the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and am studying under Academy of Coaching Excellence (ACE) which is rooted in ontology... aka the study of being...which has been a game-changer in my search of practices.
Before joining ACE's Coach Training Program, I believed I could think through my challenges and was rather surprised when the insights and joy I was searching for were found in observation rather than analysis of the challenges.
At first I thought, "what does that even mean...observe rather than analyze?" and "analyzing stuff is really important to me." For those who tend to analyze situations and yet are feeling unsettled and wanting a change, ontological coaching just might be the game-changer you are looking for, and I would love to show you the difference.
I have had the joy of building coaching programs for groups like Brand New Congress and the California Youth Crisis Line. And have worked with 370+ schools as a Leadership Facilitator & Speaker with an International Youth Empowerment Organization.
I love to support people who are looking to make what they see as possible, probable. If this is you, I would love to chat!
I want to make sure that we have enough time to have a meaningful impact, but also a commitment you feel good about making. I suggest one of the following packages.
All packages include the following:
Sessions by Phone or Skype
During our sessions you will move through challenges, set goals, create action steps, and celebrate your achievements.
Text and Email Support
In between sessions, you can reach out via text or email for additional support in navigating challenges along the way.
I am committed to creating a world where everyone is supported 100% and no one is left out. If you don't see something that works for you, but are still interested, I am happy to custom create packages with a sliding scale. You can inquire for more information about my sliding scale here.
IS THIS FOR YOU?
Coaching is about partnership. It is about supporting you toward your goals no matter how big or small. Whether your goal is changing daily habits or making the next-kick-a** discovery, a coach assures you are not alone in working toward your goals.
Here are some helpful distinctions:
Therapy is about healing from past; coaching is about taking actions for your goals and dreams.
Consulting prescribes expertise-based solutions; coaching sees you as the undisputed expert in the matters of your life and helps you take action on your own answers.
Mentoring guides you based on a mentor’s wisdom; coaching guides you according to your own values and intentions.
Training follows a set curriculum toward set objectives; coaching reveals your own objectives and a path to fulfill them.
Is coaching about being "positive"?
Coaching has less to do with being positive and has more to do with diving into challenges in a way that helps identify what is most important to you. It is then about following your interests and discovering your willingness to change.
What should I look for in a coach?
