Individual Coaching


I can help you live more fully in the present, teach you to care for your well-being, and assist you to look for new ways to grow as a human being. I can also teach you how to navigate your environment, deal with difficult situations, and cope with the stresses of life. Is there something you have thought or dreamed about, but were too afraid to move forward with or just didn’t know where to start?

Coaching can be motivating and inspiring, and can instigate change in your life. Here are just a few of the areas that clients have asked to focus on:

  • Career or life transition or change
  • Starting a new business
  • Overcoming barriers to excellence performance
  • Growing an existing business
  • Improving self-esteem or self-confidence
  • Creating more fulfilling relationships
  • Creating a healthier you
  • Overcoming leadership challenges
  • Navigating a relationship break-up or loss of a loved one


When career coaching is your focus, I may cover the following areas:

  • Help you discover your life purpose
  • Help you identify what values matter most to you
  • Identify motivators and interests
  • Identify knowledge, skills, and abilities
  • Identify job/career targets

In addition, I may give you one or two personal assessments in order for you to gain more self-awareness to what career may be best for you. I also provide feedback on your resume, cover letters, and help you prepare for the job interview process.
