How holistic coaching works

Embracing the whole you

In our online sessions, you talk. I mostly listen and ask a few strategic questions. This is how we identify and achieve your goals.

This holistic approach means your whole life impacts who you are today, including childhood. We only look back long enough to move forward:

  • Clarity on how childhood traumas, triggers and beliefs impact your daily life today.
  • Insights that transform your communication skills at home, work and in the ways you love. 
  • Skills for tapping into childhood joy for adult confidence and creativity. You’ll learn to play!

I know how to ask powerful questions. My 16 years as a full-time journalist gifted me with expert skills in listening, interviewing and observing.

I’m also a writing and communications coach. As a part-time professor, I’ve helped empower generations of sassy, insightful storytellers.

I’m trained in wellness & meditation techniques. I love Classical Chinese Medicine: dietetics, stones, herbs, Taoism, shamanism, meditation and more.

I’m commited to diversity, equity, inclusion (DEI): I have decades of experience in building community. Read about me. 


HOLISTIC LIFE & CAREER COACH. I’m credentialed at the PCC level. This means that I’ve passed the exams and completed training that meets the “gold standard” for coaching set by the International Coaching Federation.
