Individual Coaching

… and the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.  ~Anais Nin

Individual coaching is a journey of  re-discovering what it is to be truly yourself. It is difficult to tread the self-discovery path alone.  Often we underestimate the power of having someone deeply listen to us.  When we tell our stories and feel heard, we can imagine new and creative solutions to our challenges.   Humanistic psychologist, Carl Rogers says, “It is astonishing how elements that seem insoluble become soluble when someone listens.  How confusions that seem irremediable become relatively clear flowing streams when one is heard.”

I  am your ally in this process of self-discovery.  I will listen deeply for your precious feelings and needs to help you clarify, what’s at the heart of the matter for you right now and your vision of your future.

Specializing in empathy, communication, & conflict resolution, I employ the skills of Nonviolent Communication (NVC). This includes listening empathetically, expressing authentically, transforming reactivity, having heart-to-heart conversations, and making requests.

I  know that experiencing difficult feelings, being involved in a troubling relationship or having difficulty making a decision is frustrating and painful. I know these experiences personally, and I will be here to accompany you so you stay clear about the direction your life is going.

When  you enter into a coaching relationship with me, you will learn to:

  • Transform your internal conflict, replacing your anxiety with clarity
  • Have compassion for yourself and for others rather than getting defensive, pushing away, or taking it personally
  • Have confidence in your ability to connect to other people in difficult situations
  • Stay on track with what you really want and how to get there
