After graduating from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA in 2003 with a degree in Psychology, I earned my Professional Co-Active Coaching® Certification through the California-based Coaches Training Institute (CTI) in 2009, followed later that year by the successful completion of the intensive CTI Leader® Program. Since then, I have completed hundreds of hours of coaching with clients that have come to me with an array of reasons they desire change in their lives, including money, family, relationships, and career. The coaching relationship that I build with you is grounded in four main cornerstones of the Co-Active Coaching® Model:
The coach dances in the moment with the client.
When I am engaged and listening to you during a session—your words, your emotions, and the space between your words—it’s like a jam session that serves to delve into the juicy work of coaching your life. The “in the moment” part of this is integral. As I am absolutely present with you, the dancing seamlessly and inevitably follows.
The client is naturally creative, resourceful and whole.
You are not broken and you do not require fixing. Your natural creativity, resourcefulness and wholeness are with you all the time no matter what. You already have everything you need to live your fullest self.
The agenda comes from the client.
Not me, your spouse, your business partner, your boss, your friends or your pet.
The coach coaches the client’s whole life.
As your coach, I understand that everything in your life is connected. Asking questions like, “Where else in your life does this show up for you?” powerfully points you toward seeing, feeling and integrating those connections. Everything has a ripple effect.
