Do you really know what direction you're headed? Do you have a purpose? Are you enjoying the journey or are you in such a hurry that you're missing great opportunities along the way? Are you on the right path?
How can you answer these questions if you haven't discovered what is important to you?
How will you know when you're on the right path to your goals?
Coaching is a process that clarifies many of these questions for you. You can define your priorities in life, your goals, your passion. Once this is defined, we can work together to map a route to your success.
Are you ready for change? It is inevitable if you are going to make progress.
How can you be comfortable with change?
Through the process of team or individual coaching, you can identify a plan to reach your goals using your own strengths and methods.
You are the expert of your own life and actions.
I will guide and support you through a creative process that will inspire and motivate you. My unique process provides clarification and moves you toward a plan that helps you reach your goals in every aspect of your life.
Individual coaching can spark the changes you need in your life - for the better!
No matter where you are, we can develop a coaching relationship through phone sessions (or Skype or any other online source) that are an effective process for discovering where you want to go with your life.
Teams benefit from coaching.
While working with teams in the corporate, non-profit environment or any other groups, I provide methods for effectively identifying strengths and building on them for success. Teams can benefit from varying perspectives and align their objectives for the best processes and outcomes.
It's not just about change
Coaching isn't just about managing change in your life. It is an effective process for living your life to the fullest, with clarity and purpose. It also gives you the opportunity to find your own solutions to challenges and issues that you may be facing in your personal or professional life. It's a great way to build confidence, focus on what matters, create balance, strengthen your weaknesses and define and accomplish your goals.
Whether you are a business owner, manager, team leader, intern or student, coaching can propel you forward, support your decision-making process and guide you to heights that you may not otherwise reach.
Although I can successfully provide coaching services to anyone, I do focus much of my time in a few particular areas, including:
Architects, Engineers and the Construction Industry
With a 17-year career in the architectural, engineering and construction industry, I provide specialized coaching services to any size firm or supplier in the built environment. I understand the challenges and nuances of success for this industry and offer unique processes for leadership development, team strengthening and individual improvement. This engagement identifies goals, maps a route to reach these goals and follows up with accountability.
My strengths in the business start-up, marketing, business development and leadership development areas allow me to provide effective consulting services for sales, marketing and business development teams as well as managers and owners.
My passion to support those who help others transitions to non-profit organizations around the country. Call me to help your team grow, improve and reach goals as an organization, team or individual.

The Coaching Process
Flexible coaching delivery process
One of the unique things about my coaching practice is my flexibility to work with clients on their schedule. I'm available weekdays, weekends and evenings, based on the needs of the individual. I also utilize technology to accommodate clients around the country and around the world.
How do we work together?
My coaching process is a solutions-based method that draws the best out of people. I focus on your current status and future short-term or long-term goals. Depending on your expected outcome and needs, I can deliver coaching in a variety of ways, including:
Most of my coaching is conducted over the phone and it is a very effective method for working with clients. For teams and corporate environments, I'm available to travel or use technology as the situation dictates.
Most sessions start with a 6-10 session package, but many clients continue as they reach further for aspirations or continuously manage challenges at work or in their personal lives. Usually, we will work together 2-3 times per month or however often your schedule allows.
As your Coach, I will support and guide you toward professional and personal success.
My solutions-focused coaching process will allow you to reach your full potential. You will be able to articulate your goals and identify and execute strategies to reach them. It's a simple, enlightening process which doesn't take a long time to achieve results.
What are the benefits of coaching?
Individuals who engage in a coaching partnership can expect to experience fresh perspectives on personal challenges and opportunities, enhanced thinking and decision-making skills, enhanced interpersonal effectiveness, and increased confidence in carrying out their chosen work and life roles.
Through one-on-one or group coaching, I’m confidant that your team will benefit from insightful conversations and demonstrate a new sense of purpose and dedication.
