I am passionate about supporting artists, creatives, professionals and business leaders with their personal and professional growth. I work with people as they embark on career choices and navigate opportunities and challenges in their personal and professional lives. Through my practice of Co-Active Coaching I challenge my clients to discover and explore hidden gems of insight that enable them to discover and live their life ON purpose. With a focus on clarity of objectives, powerful exploration and personal transformation, I help leaders strengthen their leadership, management, relationship and influence skills and achieve desired outcomes for themselves and their teams. For those in transition, I guide full and active exploration of the many possibilities to achieve a successful and fulfilling future.

My extensive knowledge of theater, performance, communication, and the creative process, and my training in somatic learning, personal development, and business come together in my work as a collaborator, teacher, and certified coach. I have a passion for and belief in an original 'wildness' of presence and freedom, and a deep inherent knowing uninhibited by society. This is what excites me and keeps me wide awake in service to the truth and beauty of human existence.
My specialty is facilitating my client's clarity and action in order to realize her desire to finally know and live her own deepest truth.
My clients usually experience tremendous relief and even joy as they release old patterns and practice new ones to create the change they are seeking. Action follows with relative ease, confidence, and excitement.
I coach those with ADD/ADHD and others who have challenges with procrastination or managing time, focusing, planning or organizing. Typically clients feel overwhelmed, distracted or disorganized. Many know what they have to do, but often do not do it; are unsure how to start a project; are routinely missing deadlines or misplacing items; or are regularly running late or forgetting.
I coach college students and other adults.
