Throughout my life, I’ve chosen to make many changes, quite successfully. However, the most striking changes, the hardest changes are the changes I didn’t choose —the unexpected life changes that arrive without warning. The changes that require more change when you are least prepared to change.
Taking a pragmatic approach to my circumstances, I searched for wisdom within the pages of self-help books which posed promising strategies for managing a myriad of life's challenges. But without anyone to challenge my answers, help me discover new truths, support me to get into action, or acknowledge any small gain, success was fleeting. The failure of this approach was in trying to help myself by myself. It was a noble effort. More effort than noble. Even though my academic pursuit of personal growth was not working, I didn't stop trying until circling the same wagon proved to be fruitless and exhausting. It was at this point; I got a coach.
And it has been a journey of unexpected results. Unrecognized opportunities appeared, possibilities surfaced. It can be joyful, but it isn’t magic; it’s a process that despite past conditioning evokes your inherent ability to grow and expand your life personally and professionally. For me discovering opportunities in the face of struggle was a life changer.
I became a transformational coach, trained and certified through CTI (The Coaches Training Institute) and RMT (Strategic Intervention Coaching).
My professional experience beyond coaching has spanned both the worlds of art and commerce, as an Art Director on the creative side and a Senior Account Manager for Fortune 500 brands on the business side.
Based on the foundation of my training, coupled with my experience and the desire to achieve breakthrough results my approach is to have you shift from where you are to where you want to be.

No one gets up in the morning, and while adjusting to daylight declares,
I think I will be a nervous wreck today or depressed or a colossal failure.
Even at our worst, we want better. It is near impossible to be both your problem and your solution, which brings me to the benefits of coaching.
Coaching is a process for achieving effective change, progress, and fulfillment. It is a practical approach that elevates your inherent abilities while dismantling the obstacles that keep you from achieving your goals. It's discovery and growth through insight, action, and support.
You know the adage, If you keep doing things the same way, you are sure
to get the same results. It may not serve us, but it's damn familiar, and there is comfort in familiarity even when it stings.
