"Besides your wisdom, openness, compassion, 
 intelligence, humor (and the list could go on), 
 you have facilitated so much learning about myself.   
  You've helped me more than any counselor I've gone to."  
~A.C., coaching client    
Why hire me?

Because my clients get results (check out what they say)
That's the number 1 reason.  Everything else pales in comparison.

Because I won't judge you, but I'll hold you to your best.
The insights and practices I offer you on our journey together will be rooted in my deep listening into who you are and how you see the world – and in my knowledge of how people change.  What I won't do is tell you you're wrong, or you've failed, or you should or you shouldn't.

Because we co-create a custom-designed plan for moving forward powerfully.
My program isn't canned! Based on an extensive intake -- in which I learn to see the world through your eyes -- as well as a deep exploration of your vision for yourself and the obstacles in the way, we co-create a flexible blueprint for our work together that guides you compassionately yet rigorously toward your goals.

Because my background has prepared me well to be as effective as my clients say I am.

My bio reflects my experience as: 
  • an award-winning journalist  where I learned to be curious, to ask profound questions, and to distill the essence from people's stories;  
  • an award-winning teacher  where I learned how to optimize others' learning by fostering intrinsic motivation, building healthy teams, and setting high standards;
  • a highly-acclaimed personal coach, leadership coach, keynote speaker and workshop facilitator in the areas of coaching and  leadership.
