If you have landed on this page, chances are you are not completely satisfied with the direction of your life. I get it. I have been there, too. Maybe you have personal or professional challenges that are holding you back. Maybe both. Regardless, I am glad you are here as I am happy to help you. I remember a time several years ago when I found myself stuck. So I made a plan to ‘get out of Dodge’ and uprooted my life. From a borough of 8,000 to a city of 8 million. No small feat for anyone. But sometimes you need to shake things up to create a different path for your life.
I ask my clients, are you satisfied with your professional or personal life? Are there sources in your work environment that are causing you conflict? What is blocking you from moving forward and creating the life that you visualize for yourself? And, would you be okay leaving things as is or are there some parts of your daily existence that need major improvement? Are you where you want to be both personally and professionally? And if not, why not? Let’s explore those questions. Together.
It’s important to remember that strife doesn’t have to be a constant part of your professional world but in that same vein, it does tell us that something needs to change. We may not know exactly what it is in the moment, but the strife and being uncomfortable is there for a reason. Instead of leaning out, maybe it’s time to lean in.
So, through strategic professional coaching, I can teach you how to remove the obstacles that are preventing your growth while also maximizing the parts that you enjoy about your work and your life so you can truly flourish. Think personal and professional development. Acknowledging the places you are stuck and doing what it takes to become unstuck so you can start to create the life you want for yourself. Through coaching, you will stop feeling like you are pushing the boulder up the hill by yourself and instead learn the skills necessary to be more present at work, learn to tackle the obstacles, gain greater emotional intelligence, manage your stress, be confident, and be an effective decision maker. Simply grow both personally and professionally.
My approach to helping you is transformative, instructive, directive, collaborative, and empathic. Together we are future focused as I guide you from getting to Point A to Point B. And you will find that you already have the answers, you just don’t know that you do. Yet. So, through our collaborative process, you will discover the answers hidden in you.
I will help you commit to personal and professional change as you embark on changing your mindset to one of courage and commitment to change.
Strategic Professional Coaching and Personal Development
As your strategic professional coach, I have an array of proven tools to remove obstacles, break bad habits, and set yourself on a different and better path so that you can reach both life-fulfilling and professional goals. With coaching, we create a partnership utilizing a thought provoking and creative process that will inspire you to take the steps to maximize your personal and professional growth and potential. We are thinking partners and see you as resourceful, insightful, and a willing participant in the change you need in your life.
And as an experienced strategic professional coach, I have coached numerous people throughout their successful lives, relationships, and careers. I also have helped to obtain significant results for many people. I get it. I recognize your obstacles.
Some of the areas that we will focus on include the following:
- Creating positive work relationships through better and more effective communication.
- Improving your emotional intelligence at work and at home.
- Helping to improve your self-awareness, clarify goals, set and achieve developmental objectives and unlocking your potential
- Asking the questions that will help unblock you and shift you to another path.
- Discovering the ways where you are flourishing and those areas that need some time, attention, and intention.
- Improving your self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-worth.
- Providing a confidential and supporting sounding board where questions are asked, assumptions are challenged, provide resources and clarity, and if warranted with permission, provide advice.
- Integrating (rather than balancing) all of the important people and things in your life to create flow.
- Teaching you how to incorporate self-care into your life and how to put yourself when it is necessary to do so.
Emotional Intelligence Assessment
My work as your strategic professional coach involves an assessment of your core values and the areas of your professional life that are the most challenging. This might include your aspirations, career, and your personal and professional relationships. After the initial assessment, you complete the EQ-i 2.o online. The second session is devoted to going over the results, setting goals and objectives and examining where you are currently and where you would like to be in the workplace.
We work together to create a specific and personalized action plan – just for you. For some people, that is enough. However, if you are looking for a longer term coaching commitment, we can dig deeper and continue to discuss the results to maximize your potential at work and address challenges that are keeping you stuck. Having a high EQ is a vital component to being successful in the workplace. This path leads to greater personal development. In essence, creating the best version of you, of your life.
Focusing on the skills that you are currently using and learning how to use the skills you are using less to create more of a balance, will help you leverage your skills to a higher level at work (and personally too), so you can meet the everyday challenges and improve your confidence, ability to communicate effectively, manage your stress, improve your interpersonal relationships, and incorporate better strategic and flexible decision making.
Why do the goals set by so many people fail to become a reality? Many times it’s because we let ourselves break the rules in small ways until eventually we are no longer following our resolution. We are not committed. We fear change. We have a tendency to get in our own way. We have something that is blocking us from achieving our goals. Figuring that out, together, and asking important questions, helps create a new path for you. Focusing on solutions, rather than problems, you begin to visualize the life you want and what that looks like. All of this takes courage – courage that you have and know you need to embrace.
A few of the questions I begin with are:
- What would your ideal workday and work week look like?
- With areas of your professional life are you most confident? Where are your challenges?
- What would your co-workers or your colleagues say about your work ethic and ability to manage people and be a positive leader?
- How would a solution focused approach change your professional life and encourage personal development?

Also, because no two people are ever exactly the same, I offer both Individual and Package coaching sessions.
Single Session (One-Hour Phone or Video Consultation): During these sessions, we will discuss the specifics about your current situation. I will then offer practical feedback and suggestions, which are designed to make sure that you have the necessary tools to handle the situation on your own. A summary of our session is subsequently sent to you through email.
Packages. I offer three, five, or ten sessions with each sessions involving a one hour phone or streaming video consultation. I focus on making sure that each package offers as comprehensive and personalized a life action plan as possible. Email support following each session is also included.
