"Why I Coach"


How often do you have time to really think about how to move forward in your life? In this day and age of constant connection via electronic devices (IPads, Smartphones, TV, text messages and emails), how frequently are you able to sit down and dedicate time to reflect on the best strategies for your unique situations?


That is why I am a coach. I am here to be a sounding board, to give you the “me time” to think through the obstacles that are holding you back from being your best you.


As a professionally trained coach, my job is not to give you advice; rather my focus is on asking you questions that bring to light the solutions residing inside you. Using proven techniques, my attention is solely on you, my client and your unique situation. By deeply listening and asking powerful questions, your solutions will bubble up to the surface and they will work because they are yours.

"Why I Coach"


When was the last time you felt truly and fully heard? How often do you have the chance to work on solutions that are best for you – because they are yours, not the well-intentioned advice of another? Who will challenge your thought processes, rather than tell you only what you want to hear?


These are the gifts of coaching and are just a few of the reasons why I chose to become a professional coach, credentialed by the International Coach Federation. In our hyper-connected and incredibly busy world, few of us have the time to “just think”. Through the use of powerful, strategic questions and keen observation, I’ll help you use this valuable think time to create your best strategies for success in any area of your personal or professional life.


Leadership coaching is my passion, because the person who leads creates the experience for all who follow. Leadership coaching helps to make the world a better place. We’re all leaders in some respect, whether we lead on the job, in the family, in social circles, or lead ourselves. Lead yourself to be the best you can be through professional coaching.


A special “Why” for fellow coaches:

One of the areas I particularly enjoy is mentor coaching – that is, offering developmental coaching for other coaches. As an experienced coach trainer, ICF Registered Mentor Coach and ICF Assessor, I’ll help you sharpen your skills and deepen your understanding of ICF's Core Coaching Competencies to help you become the best coach you can be. Mentor coaching helps us build a strong community of excellent coaches, who, in turn support their clients to achieve success for the long-term.


Because we're actively engaged in many coaching organizations, we're supported by a powerful network of more than 50 highly skilled coaches across the globe. These collaborative relationships enable us to quickly scale our services to support coaching engagements of any size or complexity.

Our partner coaches are members of the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and abide by ICF's Code of Ethics. Many also hold an ICF coaching credential.
