Life Coaching is a way to quickly move toward your most important goals with the support of a trained professional.  A life coach will help you determine (1) where you are now (2) where you’d like to be, and (3) how you wish to get there.  Basically, a life coach helps you set goals and take action!

The International Coaching Federation (ICF) defines life coaching as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.”

"We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit."

— E.E. Cummings

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming--"Wow! What a Ride!"

Life Coaching is a relatively new field, but the number of people providing life coaching is growing rapidly.  As an International Coaching Federation (ICF) Certified Life Coach, I have the professional training to assist you to discover your strengths and weaknesses.  I am an experienced life coach, passionate about assisting people achieve their goals, and asking powerful questions that often lead to new insight and awareness inspiring positive change and growth. 

I am an empathetic listener, passionate about supporting and empowering you to focus on your most important priorities and giving you the courage to take those initial steps toward ACTION.  In addition to life coaching experience, I also have years of experience in business and educational fields in the U.S., Australia, and New Zealand.  I now reside in Canada, coaching individuals in the U.S. and Canada primarily.  I have specialized experience working with people with diabetes and chronic illnesses -- having worked two years as a Life Coach at the University of Hawaii, and as an on-line coach with DPS Health, Virtual Lifestyle Management program in 2011.

I believe all of my clients have their own answers, but...sometimes it helps to have  the positive, action-oriented process of life coaching to achieve the results that you want.

"It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are."

What is life coaching?

“Professional coaching is an interactive process that helps individuals and organizations improve their performances and achieve extraordinary results. Professional coaches work with clients in all areas, including business, career, finances, health and relationships.  Clients receiving coaching set better goals, take more action, make better decisions, and more fully use their natural strengths.
