...a flourishing community of learners, educators, and families who feel supported in their learning, their work, and their ability to create healthy solutions for the challenges they face.

Would you want to be a part of such a community?

I would.

That's why I decided to leverage my creativity and coaching strengths to make this vision a reality.

Here's How:

Individual Coaching

60-minute sessions are offered virtually (or in person if local) for individuals through Zoom or phone. 

The average coaching engagement spans across 6 sessions: One 45-minute intake to establish expectations and goals for a coaching plan followed by five weekly, pre-scheduled 60-minute coaching sessions.

Mentor Coaching

For coaches pursuing an ACC or PCC credential or those who are renewing an ACC credential.


I delight in providing either aspiring or experienced coaches the professional assistance necessary to achieve their ICF credentialing goals. If you or your team are looking for a mentorship program to fulfill the ICF requirements for mentor coaching or CCE units, you've come to the right place.

As a credentialed ICF PCC holder and active mentor coach and performance evaluator for Level 1, Level 2, and ACSTH path program providers, I am well-versed in supporting your learning as you harness the ICF core competencies & enhance your skills.

Connect with me to learn how I can support your growth as a coach!

Free Consultation

A free 30-minute phone consultation is available to any new clients considering working with me.

The phone consultation is required for all clients to ensure coaching is a fit for their needs. Self-agency and a desire for coaching is paramount, so this call is designed to confirm that prospective clients understand coaching and choose to engage in co-creating a partnership.

*If the potential teen client is a minor, the consultation must occur with both the parent(s)/guardian(s) and the minor.
