Exploring problem-solving through nature is one way to understand our own nature.

In an increasingly disconnected world, it’s important to find creative ways to reconnect to ourselves and one another, especially when facing or leading change. When we step back and tune in, we can see that chaos is a calling to lead differently, to listen differently, to facilitate change differently. It's an invitation for transformation and resilience, for radical acceptance then radical creativity. It's a thrilling time to serve emerging leaders and leaders facing transition. 

"Awareness is the greatest agent for change." 

~ Eckhart Tolle


I believe we’re all in this together and when we regard each other as human beings not human-doings we can move beyond criticism and stuck, and get to the best part, which is creating and solving problems together. Excellence isn’t just acquired, it’s embodied.

I help you bridge what was to what's next. Together we re-imagine, re-invent and accomplish meaningful goals.

Together, we soften stress, reduce overwhelm and navigate the choppy waters of change and the grief associated with shape-shifting life. In the end, when you feel ready to "graduate" from coaching you stand taller, feel stronger and look back with gratitude for what's evolved. You're confident, bold and whole. You are at peace, hopeful and resilient. Together, we remember our humanity and that's a good thing. 

For me, knowing I help make this possible for you makes life worth living. Every day I place my feet on the floor and state how grateful I am to help people just like YOU. 

Whether I'm working with one individual or speaking to a conference room or living room full of people, I want you to know you are not alone. 

I see you. I hear you. You belong.
