Aperture Coaching
A native from Germany, I have lived in the US since 1992. After earning an MBA from Elon University, I created a successful small real estate rental business and raised a family. Now that my youngest is leaving for college in the Fall I am excited and energized to grow and expand my coaching business. By moving away from a set career path in Germany, my life has become much bigger and larger than I could have ever imagined. It is from this place where I want to support others to experience or claim the same! I have graduated from Doug Silsbee's Presence-Based® Coaching program and am also a Certified Focusing Professional through the International Focusing Institute. Both methodologies have shaped and informed my body of work by including and working with what arises in the present moment in the coaching conversation. This approach includes our whole body and both the left and right brain. We cannot think ourselves to change, it needs to be embodied -- therefore I am including somatic and embodiment exercises if the client is open towards that. I love to support others in their quest of their dream and also hold a safe space for difficult conversations.
