What’s the big deal about coaching?

Coaching can help you break through barriers, get unstuck, rediscover your passions, and be more effective in your life and career.

When my kids were little, they took gym classes. At five years old, they didn’t need a professional coach. They had fun and learned some skills at a local tumbling gym. However, if they were high-performing or Olympic athletes, there’s no question they would need a personal coach. The same is true of us. We need coaching not because we need remediation or because we are novices. Instead, we need coaching because we are already professionals, and to improve we have to be deliberate in our approach.

For the last two years, I have been coached once or twice a week. Those sessions have helped me work through personal and professional thought barriers. They have helped me understand myself better and how my thoughts and assumptions were holding me back or causing me to self-sabotage.

For the last two years, I have also coached others individually and in groups. Through being a coach, I have seen people make changes in their lives and careers and, most importantly, in how they think. Small changes in direction or approach can yield major changes over time.

“Coaching is unlocking a person’s potential to maximize their growth.”


One-on-one coaching is different from any classes or courses you could take because of the individualized attention and confidentiality. Coaching is not mentorship, therapy, or advice. Coaching is future-focused and seeks to empower individuals with the ability to move forward and grow. Coaching is like having a personal trainer for your mind.

“A life coach does for the rest of your life what a personal trainer does for your health and fitness.”


My goal is to partner with individuals to catalyze growth and renewal in their lives through coaching. My assumption is that you come to the table as someone who is creative, resourceful, and whole.

If you are interested, sign up for a bundle of mini-coaching sessions. Let’s work together to think through what your life could be like and how to get there.

“Who, exactly, seeks out a coach? If you ask a coach the answer is usually the same: Winners who want even more out of life.”
