Why I chose to become a coach.
A successful experience being coached touched something deep inside that propelled me to help others through coaching. From time to time we all feel “stuck” and need help determining how best to move forward. I’ve found that coaching is a helping profession, similar to the God-given purpose of ministry leaders.
As their trusted and confidential guide, I help clients identify, establish and accomplish their goals. I join with the Holy Spirit in coaching my clients to intentionally transform their relationships at work, home and in the community.
With coaching, Problems = Solutions. I partner with my clients to help them become unstuck, rediscover passions, find their own solutions, and create success while keeping a Christ-centered focus.
As your coach and accountability partner, I use my 35 years of leadership experience in the military, corporate, non-profit, and federal sectors to help clients serve others better. I have over 1,200 hours of coaching experience and a Master’s degree in Organizational Behavior and Executive Coaching. I hold credentials as a Certified Professional Christian Coach (CPCC), a Professional Certified Coach (PCC), and a Certified Career Services Provider (CCSP)™ credential.
My commitments to you as your coach:
• I will maintain an open, curious, flexible and client-centered mindset, and act in your best interest.
• I will partner with you to create a safe, supportive and judgment free environment where we share freely with respect and trust.
• I will help you discover options, take prudent risks, explore new territory, create new awareness, accomplish goals and take ownership and action.
• You are responsible for your outcomes, pace and growth, and I will respect that.
• I will be your coach, advocate, catalyst for change, accountability partner and compassionate truth-teller.
I offer you a complimentary 30-minute coaching session to discuss your current situation and coaching goals. Please request an appointment on the Contact Me page.
