what is coaching?
Developmental coaching is a process of reflection, experimentation, & discovery that allows participants to better meet the demands of transformation: making empowered decisions, managing stress, developing sustainable relationships, producing creative work, & finding joyful purpose in living.
One-on-one coaching is a shared commitment to & an engagement with a Life Curriculum that includes enhancing attention, organizing & activating creativity, engaging with the body, & fulfilling one's commitments. With coaching support, students use a research-backed process to build self-efficacy, self-esteem, and self-confidence.
I have worked with hundreds of young people over the past fifteen years to adopt easy & effective strategies attuned to overcoming social, learning, & emotional challenges. I am fully committed to bringing a greater sense of self-knowledge to every teen & teaching them how to get out of their own way to live from a more empowered, compassionate, & creative foundation.

Together we'll determine ways to lean in to your growth edge & build the skills necessary for thriving.
Develop regular, consistent habits. Wash, Rinse, Repeat.
Whether it's completing schoolwork, social media management, prioritizing you-time, or staying physically or creatively engaged...
We all have things we wish we could stick to.
I'm here to help you stay on course for what matters most.
Enhance relational skills, find voice & speak out with love.
How we ask for what we need, listen to our communities, & talk to ourselves are the make-it-or-break-it skills that no one teaches in school.
I help teens get clear, choose powerful words & build bravery to use their voices for the good they hope to make in the world.
