Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?
--Mary Oliver, "The Summer Day"


The primary focus of coaching is on evolving a manifestation of potential.  If you're feeling stuck about reaching a personal or professional goal--or just ready to start planning next steps--then coaching may be for you.

My specialities are graduate and postdoctoral student coaching, academic and executive functioning coaching and work life balance coaching.

I have completed 104 hours of training through the Co-Active
® Training Institute (CTI), which is widely recognized as the most rigorous professional coach training in the industry. Additionally, I have a strong grounding in generative interviewing, motivational interviewing, and strengths-based academic advising models through Gallup and the Appreciative Advising Institute.

The goals of coaching are to enhance performance, ensure smooth life transitions, deal with challenges, achieve goals, become more successful, and improve the overall quality of one’s personal and professional life. Coaches work with clients to design an alliance, practice curiosity, dream big, develop and implement an action plan that includes accountability. The coach’s role is not to supply solutions, but to be a catalyst—listening, questioning, and ultimately holding the client accountable to the change goals he or she sets. As a client, you are naturally creative, resourceful, and whole—fully capable of envisioning, pursuing, and achieving your greatest purpose.
