Describe your coaching style.

I serve my clients with a consultative coaching approach. Depending on the needs of the client on a specific issue, I switch between providing information and insights, challenging their mindset, breaking limiting beliefs, asking powerful questions to provoke new ideas, and brainstorming as an equal co-partner.

Who is your ideal client and why?

Anyone with a growth mindset who wants to achieve more personally and/or professionally.

How do you measure success with a client?

I measure client success in several ways: the client achieved what they set out to accomplish, positive and constructive feedback on my coaching, and client referrals.

What is your coaching superpower?

My coaching superpower is helping my clients break through their limiting beliefs so they can achieve what they set their minds, will, and behaviors toward.
