I am a right- and left-brained professional. I have a bachelor's and master's degree in accounting and was formerly a CPA with Arthur Young/Ernst & Young. My auditing clients included SEC clients in telecommunications and other high-tech concerns; hospitals; banks; manufacturing companies; and nonprofits. After migrating to nonprofit management as a Director of Finance/CFO, I returned to graduate school: this time to pursue a Master of Education degree in Marriage & Family Therapy.
Executive Coaching enables me to use my previous career education and experience in conjunction with those as counselor, therapist, and coach to bring the best of all of I have to offer to my clients.
Clients served include executives and professionals in higher education, oil and gas, nonprofit management, law firms, public accounting firms, human resources, counseling and coaching, and yoga studios.
What is the goal of coaching?
You decide. You bring where you want to be, and we have conversations. And you decide where you want your organization or team to be. You engage in the process of becoming who you want and need to be. The nature of the relationship is collegial. The objective is to help you develop personally and professionally in ways that you are finding difficult within your current context. Humans get in their own way and in the way of others.
The goal is to help you make the loving choices that will facilitate your development and growth as a person and as a professional. You have the capacity and answers. You might just have some unmet needs in the area of external and internal resources.
You might need someone to coach you.
What does this mean?
You might need someone.....
- Someone who will help you clarify your values and goals
- Someone who believes in you and is there to support your goals.
- Someone who knows how to support and promote behavior change effectively without shame and blame.
- Someone to listen and provide objective and honest feedback.
- Someone to hold you accountable for the commitments you make to yourself.
- Someone who is not a family member, friend, or colleague...independent of your circle of influence.
- Someone who knows the game.
- Someone who will see you and help you see yourself compassionately.
- Someone you hire for you.
- Someone your organization hires for you.
The principles of The Loving Choice are about personal ownership, power, and freedom.
