Q&A

Describe your coaching style.

I am a compassionate and action-oriented coach with a lighthearted nature. I strive to understand you and your specific needs, and will push you to get out of your comfort zone and will challenge you to achieve your goals. I am exceptional at working with you to break big goals down into smaller, manageable, accountable steps. I have been described as supportive, empowering, calm, patient, thoughtful, empathetic, professional, authentic, and refreshing.

Who is your ideal client and why?

I work with clients who have a strong desire to take their career or health to the next level, but have struggled to get there independently. Often my clients initially describe feelings of "analysis paralysis", overwhelm, uncertainty, lack of confidence, lack of clarity, being "blocked", and/or struggles with motivation. Having a depth of experience working in various professional settings -- and knowing the professional and personal challenges that can arise along the way -- I am incredibly passionate about supporting clients who are faced with their own unique challenges and helping them break through.

How do you measure success with a client?

I am a client-centered coach, that works with each client to establish unique goals and success metrics. I begin my client engagements with an initial question – asking the client what they want to achieve and what “success" would look like from their current perspective. As the client begins to further explore their goals through their foundational coaching work, this initial articulation is refined and clarified. Once there is alignment on clear goals and a path forward, I work with the client to develop a timeline, define relevant corresponding success milestones, and determine the right method of tracking and accountability for the client. I have a variety of ways to track progress, depending on how the client prefers to work. I often leverage proven accountability methods such as shared written trackers with goals and aligned daily/weekly measurable milestones, written email/text reporting with regular check-ins, and verbal check-ins at the start of each session to align on progress. I will also often do regular reflections and realignment on goals, which ensures that my clients continue to revisit their vision and stay on track with what they want to achieve.

What is your coaching superpower?

My superpower is creating a safe space for clarity and empowering confident action.
