Summary Statement
In an increasingly disconnected world, it’s important to find creative ways to reconnect to ourselves and one another, especially when facing or leading change. When we step back and tune in, we can see that chaos is a calling to lead differently, to listen differently, to facilitate change differently. It's an invitation for transformation and resilience, for radical acceptance then radical creativity.
Coaching Philosophy
I believe we’re all in this together and when we regard each other as human beings not human-doings we can move beyond criticism and stuck, and get to the best part, which is creating and solving problems together.

As a client noted, my coaching style is... " a compassionate poke with a sharp stick." ;) I help you see what you can't yet see or say bravely outloud.
