Describe your coaching style.

My coaching style is based on the premise that individuals have the capacity both to understand and to engage in activities intended to transform consciously. Having been in many of my clients’ shoes, I have combined my over 20 years of corporate experience with my deep knowledge of social-emotional intelligence and created a three-step methodology I call the Breaking Through Coaching Method. Through this method, engage, envision, and execute, my clients experience what it means to be seen, heard, and understood, a proven environment for growth and learning. Rapidly, my clients start developing self-awareness, cultivating a growth mindset, and changing limiting beliefs, behaviors, and thinking that have held them back from their potential, satisfaction, and success.

Who is your ideal client and why?

Professionals looking for a promotion or a career change but lack the confidence to actually ask for it or take the next steps towards a new career. Instead, they are paralyzed by fear, stuck, unhappy, bored, and disengaged. Why? Because I have been in their shoes. I relate to what they are experiencing and have a deep yearning to support them in pursuing more for themselves.

Individuals search for a deeper meaning and purpose in life. They live on autopilot, disengaged, or sleepwalking through their day without passion or energy. Why? Because I have seen the benefits of living and working with a purpose as a north.

How do you measure success with a client?

Every session, in the end, I ask how the session went, if they are complete and if there is clarity on the next steps. If things need to be adjusted, we will assess each session to see if the client needs additional support. Clients identify and take up activities meant to generate action and challenge previous mistaken truths, beliefs, and behaviors. Every week, my clients are moving towards an ideal state.

What is your coaching superpower?

My coaching superpower is empathy and curiosity.
