I want you to be happy at work.
You spend a lot of time at work. You deserve to be happy, fulfilled and appreciated.
My mission is to create a courageous space where you can discover what is going to make you excited to get up every day and give it 100%…not because you have to…because you want to.
The International Coach Federation defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. The process of coaching often unlocks previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity and leadership.
We all have goals we want to reach, challenges we’re striving to overcome and times when we feel stuck. Partnering with a coach can change your life, setting you on a path to greater personal and professional fulfillment.
I’m a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach™ with hundreds of hours of coaching experience. I incorporate neuroscience-based practices and adult developmental theory into all of my programs.
My clients learn how to access the intelligence of their emotions through embodiment practices. I’m not a big fan of the “woo woo” in coaching, unless I understand the science behind the “woo.”
Coaching isn’t a walk in the park. Growth happens outside of your comfort zone. It’s cliche but true. I tell my clients that it’s not my job to make them feel comfortable, but it is my job to make them feel safe and supported. I almost never ask my clients to do something that I haven’t done myself.
Before launching my own business, I worked in global development, including starting and managing programs in ten countries & raising millions of dollars. I’ve worked across sectors in big corporations, nonprofits and small businesses in many roles. In 2018, I wrote & published my first book, Next Act Give Back. It became an international bestseller in 7 categories on Amazon & has received glowing reviews. My superpower is being able to move in and out of different cultures & groups with skill & ease. I use this superpower to help my clients adapt to new adventures & challenges. I live in New Jersey, USA. I work with clients all over the world.
I believe that you are pretty darn great just the way we are. I don’t believe that you need to fix yourself. There is nothing wrong with you. Instead, let’s focus on liberating what’s already inside of you. I believe that we spend years developing skills, networks and experience. We owe it to ourselves to use those things to create a life & career that is good for us and good for the world. I believe in taking risks & I love helping people push the boundaries of their own lives. I believe that most people are braver when they have someone in their corner rooting for them.
I learned Spanish while living on the beach in Costa Rica in the 1990s, making and selling jewelry to tourists to earn money. I’ve been to over 50 countries. At the age of 46, I decided to learn to play roller derby, including learning how to skate. I am inspired by the unrelentingly, powerful women who I meet all over the world. I live in northern New Jersey on top of a mountain with my wife, dogs, cats, horses, deer, bear and a wild turtle named Henrietta.
I know that reaching out for help can be difficult. That’s why I offer a free discovery call. There’s no catch. We have a conversation. I ask you some powerful questions about your challenges & opportunities. After we talk for a while, if you are curious & I think I might be able to help you, I tell you how we can work together. That’s it. Easy Peasy.
