Certified Life and Career Coach in Oregon | Art of Choice Coaching

About Me
I am a Certified Professional Coach who enjoyed seven years as a corporate employee coach before opening a private practice. Now I coach and conduct workshops to a broad range of people who are committed to improving their professional and/or personal lives. I have 300+ hours of training and specialized certifications that compliment my experiences as a leader in a Fortune 200 company, as a entrepreneur and as a single parent.

My style is collaborative and solution-focused. I provide the support to help you transition from “I don’t know” to “ I know what I need to do”. I provide you with tools to help anchor the learning, stretch assignments to get you moving forward, and feedback to help identify and address challenges that prevent you from realizing your goals. Every one of us is unique in our skills and what we want for ourselves. For that reason, I offer a highly personalized program tailored for you. With my support, you will build on your strengths, skills and values to create the growth you are committed to achieving.

The coaching and workshops I deliver for businesses and individuals focus on identifying core values and lean heavily on The Daring Way™ and Rising Strong™ curriculum, a hands-on methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. The method was designed for work with individuals, couples, families, work teams, and organizational leaders. It is facilitated in clinical, educational, and professional settings. In my workshops we will examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding you back and identify new choices and practices that will move you toward more authentic and wholehearted living. The primary focus is on developing resiliency skills and developing daily practices that transform the way you live, work, love, parent, and lead.

While I am based in Corvallis, Oregon, my coaching and workshop clients are located all over the United States. See my coaching, client portal and workshop pages for more information.
