My coaching style can be characterized by a phrase that a past client uses to describe me, which is “teller of the kind truth.” I listen deeply, ask curiously, and counsel thoughtfully. I believe that growth of any kind is rooted in new insights, reflection, practice, and accountability. It is my genuine pleasure to support my coaching clients in all of those ways.”
