Coaching style

I lean toward solution focused coaching with the intent for the client to discover a range of possible solutions to issues they face. My approach is holistic. I think everything in the client’s life has an impact on their perspective. I value the idea of the coach as a resource and will often offer reading or resources I think may be pertinent to the client.

About me

A life with integrity – all the parts fit together seamlessly is my goal. Knowing what is important when is where I spend my energy. I am a Christian and work daily to be better than I was the day before in living up to Christian ideals expressed in Scripture. I am at a time in my life and career where serving others and helping them be successful gives me joy. Service, worship and relationships are where I invest my time and energy.


“I am larger, better than I thought; I did not know I held so much goodness."


― Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass
