I was born with a deep love for people and always cared deeply about what was below the surface. I always knew that the career path I chose would include coming alongside people in some way. After high school, I studied Psychology at San Jose State University and graduated with a B.A. in Psychology and a minor in Sociology. Due to the heaviness that counseling can bring, I opted out of pursuing a higher degree in Psychology. Fast forward 20+ years when I discovered Coaching through a conversation with a dear friend and knew immediately this was what I had wanted to do all along. I attended the Coaches Training Institute (CTI) in May of 2017 and continued my rigorous coursework over the course of the next 13 months. I received my CPCC (Certified Professional Co - Active Coach) in June of 2018. I have over 150+ hours of paid coaching and the biggest reward has been cultivating and witnessing powerful transformation of the clients I work with.
What is Coaching?
Coaching is a partnership between coach and client that creates forward movement on a personal and professional level simultaneously. Each and every one of us has saboteur voices that that tell us that we're not measuring up or could be doing more. This saboteur wants to keep us comfortable, resists change and prevents us from taking courageous steps in our own lives. Through coaching, those barriers that create forward movement can be overcome. The result is a renewed confidence and sense of self that will give you the tools to live each day by honoring values that are important to you, allowing you to be at your best every day!
My mission is to meet you right where you are and work together toward goals designed especially for you and by you. Our partnership will be full of learning, realizations and a-ha moments that create forward motion.
