What is coaching?

Coaching can mean different things to different people. Coaching is forward-looking and focuses on the future. My coaching philosophy is simple - I am here to help you succeed. Succeed in whatever you want to do. I just make sure you can achieve that success. I support individuals and organizations to get unstuck, move forward, access opportunities, grow, and develop. As a consultant and coach, I bring technical skills, tools, frameworks, and resources to my coaching practice that help individuals and organizations look at the problem from a new lens. I help you use a systems change approach to your work - we dig deep to find the true problem we are solving - and then work from there to ensure our foundation is strong. My job is to motivate you, to help you move through the hurdles, and to help you chart new paths so you can maximize your potential.

Which is the right fit for me? : Coaching | Mentoring | Therapy 

I list the differences between coaching, mentoring, and therapy below. I am equipped and qualified to provide coaching and mentoring. I am not equipped to provide therapy but I can make referrals to individuals in my network, as appropriate. 

Coaching is forward looking, future-oriented. It helps you figure out what is holding you back from achieving your dreams. The next big thing you have your eyes on. We dig deep to identify the saboteurs that are holding you back and then work on them so they become your strengths. 

Mentoring helps you solve the problem you are facing today, now. A mentor gives you advise, guidance, and helps you make sense of the situation you are in today. They can help you navigate your career, chart a plan for the future, and share their life experiences and wisdom with you. 

Therapy focuses on the past and helps you make sense of the experiences you have had. It helps you figure out the role your past plays in your future. It helps you figure out coping mechanisms so you can get help with the problems you are facing today. 

What is consultative coaching?

I provide consultative coaching. Consultative coaching is where I blend my consulting and coaching skills together. I bring my technical expertise in program development, program management, entrepreneurship, and small-business development to my coaching clients. This way, my coaching clients get a 2-for-1 when they work with me as they can tap into my consulting and coaching brain at the same time. 

What are my values? 

Relationship Building: I think of myself as a network weaver. I love bringing people together. Building relationships is my forte and something I care greatly about. Relationships are more important than the work itself for me. So, I will always place us - as humans - before anything else. 

Inclusion: Having been in far too many conversations and situations where I have felt excluded, I work hard to ensure the spaces I create are inclusive and offer a sense of belonging. 

Intuition: I have a strong sense of intuition that goes beyond a vibe check. I lean into my intuition to show up authentically for you and me. 

Entrepreneurship: I love to start new things, grow them, learn from my mistakes, and then move on to the next big thing. I believe in failing forward and fast so I can go back at it with renewed vigor and learning. I bring this mindset and practice to my coaching and help my clients lean into abundance and growth to move forward.
