Here is what I believe about you. You have gifts to offer that no one else can give. The world needs you, the best you, the bravest version of you. Choosing to chase after your brave is about aliveness, engagement, and a sense of living your life on purpose. If you find your best and bravest life is just out of reach, coaching might be for you.
Coaching is a partnership; a collaborative journey guided by your goals, aspirations, and dreams for your life. Together we explore the places you may be stuck in old patterns that no longer serve you, gain clarity about the things you value most in life and imagine new ways of honoring those values to move you forward into a life of deeper fulfillment, balance and effectiveness. Most of the clients who find their way to me are spiritually-minded, intellectually curious people who are right on the precipice of a change. Whether you are navigating a major life transition, stuck in an unsatisfying job, adjusting to a loss, trying to walk away from a bad habit, considering a new adventure, or struggling to find balance, coaching will help you access the creativity, power, courage and practical tools you need to succeed.
In my coaching, I draw on over 30 years of work and training in the psychology, social work, coaching, addiction, and spiritual direction fields. I have a BA in Psychology and a Masters in Social Work, and I have completed certification as an addictions counselor in Texas and Virginia. I have counseled adults and adolescents individually, in groups, and in family settings. I have also had the privilege of serving as a spiritual mentor to hundreds of women through my years as small group leader, teacher, and Stephen Minister.
I am a Certified Professional Co-active Coach (CPCC,) trained by the Co-active Training Institute, the leader in the international coaching field. I have also received the ACC and the PCC credential from the International Coach Federation. I believe the coaching model allows me to combine all the best I have to offer from a perspective that affirms you and your inherent creativity and resourcefulness. We are a team, the best of me in service to the best in you.
I am also an accredited Enneagram Practitioner with Integrative Enneagram Solutions and now offer Enneagram Coaching packages using the IEQ9 enneagram assessment. I am finding the Enneagram to be one of the most powerful tools for transformation I have ever encountered, both personally and professionally. Learn more about how we use the Enneagram in coaching HERE!
The other tool we use together is Neuroscience! In the midst of the craziness of the pandemic, I completed a year-long Neuroscience, Consciousness, and Transformational Coaching Certification Program. In May of 2021, I became a Certified NeuroTransformational Coach (CNTC). This advanced coach training covers the latest research in the neuroscience of human development, innovative, brain-based coaching tools, and a road map for more conscious effectiveness in all areas of our life. My clients are LOVING the fun new tools we are exploring together, and I am seeing unbelievable impact in my own life as well the lives of my clients.
The last thing that I will say is that I thank you for every minute of every session. I thank you for listening. I thank you for asking those tough questions. I thank you for helping me climb out of my pit. I thank you for caring.
I really love that you think of life as discovery and adventure…because that’s exactly what life should be.
You have been a critical piece of my story and have left me a better person, one who is able to choose and not feel defined by old beliefs. You have quite literally helped me save myself. For that, I am eternally grateful. – JM, former client
