The coaching process is a deep, personal journey (yes, even if it is business coaching… I like to say that being an entrepreneur has been one of the most profound personal experiences so far in my life), so it is important to make sure that we are a good match.
I tend to work best with high-performing individuals who have great ideas, but need someone to help funnel those ideas into action. My ideal client is an implementer — someone that wants results and is ready, willing, and able to work for them because he or she knows that it is worth it.
I coach and consult with individuals in one-on-one and group formats (with a special emphasis on entrepreneurs in general, and professional organizers in particular, as that was my focus in the beginning years of my business), as well as with corporations and organizations (with a special emphasis on law firms, law schools, and colleges and universities, due to my background as an attorney and higher education administrator), to help each individual and each organization find balance, success and joy at home, in business, and in life.
My Ideal Client
My Ideal Client is someone who…
- is excited about coaching and is eager to engage in the process;
- is a high-functioning, high-performing, and/or high-achieving individual;
- has a vision and is committed to bringing that to life;
- believes in his or her work;
- approaches life with an open mind and a positive attitude;
- shows up on time, calls on time, and does their “homework” assignments;
- is eager to try out creative ideas, practice new techniques, explore and dig deep;
- is willing to laugh at yourself and hear the truth.
If this is you, you’re in for an amazing ride and I can’t wait to get my hands on you!

Working with me is a personalized experience like no other you’ll find. I promise.
I am passionate about helping others be more successful. My energy is contagious. It is MY purpose to ignite a fire within you so you are able to live out YOUR life’s purpose.
Combining my rich and diverse background as a mediator, lawyer, educator, performer, and successful business-owner, I am able to provide guidance across a wide platform of topics using many different modalities. I honed the ability to get to the core of an issue during my years as a lawyer. I use an artful combination of analytical skills and intuition to help my clients focus, grow, and take action.
I offer confidential coaching and consulting services across all levels of personal and professional effectiveness and development.
Part consultant, part coach — I ask probing questions designed to help you dig deep, but also give expert advice, guiding you to the answers you seek. I am skillful at guiding clients to successful results through motivation and encouragement, but without judgment. I offer an opportunity to brainstorm AND problem-solve, in a safe and supportive environment, BUT will also give you a (gentle) kick-in-the-pants when you need it! Thus, my clients lovingly refer to me as a Kick-Butt Coach! 🙂
I take a holistic approach to coaching. We work on a combination of internal AND external. My process with clients is like a laser beam to help you blast through issues holding you back, come up with a solid plan, and give you the tools to implement, so you can experience a huge shift. Thus, you experience the mind-set shifts that are so necessary to believing in and achieving success, but also receive solid know-how to help you take real action! From “big picture” to the small details, my 360 degree approach is what sets me apart.
Confidentiality & Ethics
Any good coach knows that what happens in a coaching session stays in a coaching session. Period. As a former practicing lawyer, I am extremely familiar with the concept of confidentiality and take it very seriously. My clients share their dreams, wishes and desires with me, as well as business plans, trade secrets, employee disputes and other valuable and vulnerable information. I hold all of these confidences in trust, and consider it a privilege and honor to be confided in with such sensitive information. Confidentiality is covered in, and protected by, my Coaching Agreement, which is signed by me and all of my clients. Any testimonials or references you see on this site have been freely given, with express permission, by my clients. I only release whether an individual or organization is even a client with consent. Thus, until or unless you say otherwise, mums the word!
I also hold myself up to the highest ethical standards, and abide by the ethical codes of many associations and professions that I belong to. In fact, I speak, coach and train on how to abide by codes of ethics, and handle ethical dilemmas. I do this because I think the topic of ethics is fascinating, confusing, and very, very important for the credibility of an industry, profession or association. I also recognize that the best way to stay abreast of a topic is to not only live it on a daily basis, and conduct my required continuing education, but also to teach it. In teaching a subject, we truly can master it.
