I serve high-impact leaders and influential change-makers who are dedicated to embracing their authenticity, owning their presence as their power, and giving their gifts fully in service.
In my coaching work with executives and groups, I create a container for deep transformational work that translates into real impact and lasting results. I believe in the power of visionary leaders and inspired teams to affect profound change, and as a trusted facilitator and guide have developed a process that supports organizations to realize this potential.
With a graduate degree in clinical and organizational psychology, a ten-year apprenticeship under a master coach, and over fifteen years of real-world consulting experience, I have seen what's possible when leaders recognize the power of authenticity and companies commit to transformation.
From tech giants such as Google and top research institutions like the University of California and Cornell University to dozens of small businesses, start-ups and nonprofits, my track record and accomplishments speak for themselves.
If you are willing to take a journey deeper into your truth, to fully embody your presence and gifts, and to commit to serving others from a place of true power, then let’s work together.
