What is Coaching?

Imagine if there was a way to discover your natural strengths, design your life, and find success and joy in your work and personal life. But where do you start? How do you identify your unique strengths and get unstuck in life? How do you make tough decisions about the future?

That's where I come in. I work with people who feel stuck and want to break through to design their lives and build a better future. Whether you're experiencing a major life transition or feeling anxious about your future, I provide an objective, independent, and third-party perspective to help you move forward.

If we work together, you can expect:

  • Help in identifying and overcoming roadblocks that are holding you back

  • Tools to identify your unique strengths and design a life that aligns with your values

  • Support to discover what motivates and energizes you

  • Guidance in developing self-reflection skills, which are essential for personal growth

Through life design coaching, you can integrate your strengths into your plans and achieve personal and professional success. Here are some examples of how my clients have succeeded:

  • Improved communications and relationships with bosses and teams

  • Successfully transitioned from the military to the civilian sector after 20+ years of service

  • Improved leadership skills and received promotions at work

  • Successfully changed industries and jobs to better align with professional skills and personal goals

  • Successfully implemented communication and leadership strategies to achieve business goals

  • Discovered unique strengths and chose the correct path after high school or college.

I can help you identify your strengths and create a fulfilling future.

The International Coaching Federation defines coaching as:


“…partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. The process of coaching often unlocks previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity and leadership. We all have goals we want to reach, challenges we’re striving to overcome and times when we feel stuck. Partnering with a coach can change your life, setting you on a path to greater personal and professional fulfillment.”


It is also important to understand what coaching is NOT.


Coaching is not a replacement for therapy.


Coaching is not mentoring. As the client, you will do create ideas and strategies to achieve your goals. I will help guide you through the coaching process, but you have all the answers! We will tap into your own own wisdom and insights. 

Coaching doesn't focus on the past. We might briefly visit some old patterns of thinking or behaviors, but we will focus on the present and the future.


Coaching isn’t about fixing yourself or someone else. Coaching is about tapping into your strengths, gifts, talents, assets, resources, values, and ideas to help you create the life and relationships you want for today and tomorrow.
