Life and Career Coaching

Are you ready to “take the leap” toward a more personally fulfilling life or career?

Whether your goal or desire for change is personal or professional, I can help, and tailor my approach to your needs. I specialize in Positive Psychology (to increase resilience, optimism and purposeful living), creativity (to map and manifest creative dreams of all kinds) and midlife transitions (to answer those “What’s next?” and “Now what?” questions and live into new chapters). We begin with a brief questionnaire and a 20-minute complimentary consultation or a 55-minute sample coaching session/consult in my Arlington office or via phone or video chat to see if we can work together to achieve your goals and desires. I then see clients in packages of 6 sessions (over 3 months) or 3 sessions (over 6 weeks – for clearly defined goals that need a “jump start,” accountability and support). Clients who complete packages pay a reduced fee for any additional sessions they desire.

During the coaching process, we stay focused on your agenda, bring forth insights, and co-create actions based on what you desire to achieve. I act as a “thought partner” and guide, helping you clarify your desires, assess your strengths and resources (inner and outer), identify action steps, and hold you accountable to the actions you decide to take. I also share tailored resources, and offer challenges and inquiries to expand your self-knowledge and comfort zone. Finally, I’ll be your biggest cheerleader, as I truly delight in my clients’ triumphs…and leaps!
