The journey to authentic leadership through the eye-opening examination of Self-Deception is amazing. The results — a Heart at Peace. The reward of having a heart at peace leaves you feeling right with the world. I learned this from my personal journey through my own self-deception. We encounter our blind spots daily, so there is always work to […]
As a certified professional coach, I serve as a catalyst for people reaching their highest potential. I work with people who are seeking more fulfillment in their success, deeper meaning and purpose in life and work, and ways to make more meaningful contributions. If this sounds like what you yearn for, we would make a good team.
When you choose to work with me, you will develop habits and practices to get more satisfaction out of day-to-day life and how to build your resilience, avoiding that burnout stage we all fear.
“Your playing small doesn’t serve the world*,” is a motto I truly believe in. When you learn how to be your best self you are able to make bigger contributions to the world and feel at peace with your successes while being in alignment with what matters most to you, something I assist my clients in achieving.
During our one-on-one coaching sessions, I will assist you in developing greater confidence, becoming more effective and living your best life. I will ask insightful questions to help you discover your core values, gifts, talents and purpose, helping you find ways to expand your personal and professional life.
I also work with entire teams, helping them become more engaged, cohesive and powerful as a group. I help deepen their culture of trust and accountability, which strengthens the team and makes it more productive and effective.
Coaching sessions, combined with workshops and retreats, can guide you through the process of aligning your goals, visions and strengths, so that your team can accomplish big things. Things you can only accomplish when your group is focused, driven and completely unified.

We confuse failing at something with internalized belief that we are a failure. The tragedy in this is that learning does not occur where there is no forward movement. We may take failure to another level […]
How do we claim our strengths and share what we are really good at without appearing as though we are coming from a place of ego – without “bragging.” This results in a tension that I believe we have all experienced. So, what does authentic, confident claiming of our gifts and and talents look like? […]
As I sit back and reflect on my personal path to becoming more authentic and humble, I see how Self-Deception, a significant concept, has impacted my journey. With Arbinger Institute I studied Leadership and Self-Deception. Taking that very deep dive into the nuances of Self-Deception changed how I both saw and experienced relationships. Being ‘right’ with […]
A great mistake made by leaders is believing they have to ‘know it all’ and ‘take care of it themselves’. Each of us are born with precious gifts and talents, we call these strengths. Simultaneously, we each have areas that are not strong, we have blind spots. To continue developing into your best self it […]
