I help you produce the life you want at home and work--one that meets your mental, emotional, physical, social and spiritual needs.
I love to help people all over the country align their actions with their values and needs. Coaching gives the clarity and motivation to spend time on what matters. Overwhelm and frustration melt away. Clients come to me because they have too many emails or face a life transition. They leave me with the skills to coach themselves and think more effectively whatever the situation. My learning-focused accountability support helps them turn new behaviors into solid habits.
In 2000, I founded my company Living Simply Consulting, Inc. and have spent the years since studying and practicing to more effectively serve my clients. Those efforts have included certifications in coaching and professional organizing and a Masters in Communication. My thesis was about listening with empathy, which is what I do. I especially enjoy working with those who are fighting for greater social justice and peace. Living a peaceful and productive life is everyone’s birthright.
After years of training people to perform more effectively at work, I realized that productivity is about producing the life you want, whether that's being number at the office or experiencing serenity at home. In 2013, I added mindfulness into my coaching practice and the positive results were dramatic. Whatever your goals, an approach that addresses your whole self is required. Everything connects.
Our first meeting is a free call or videoconference about your needs to determine whether we're a good fit. Clients say I'm friendly and informal and a good listener. They're usually surprised to get so much from that initial conversation.
Give it a shot! Coaching is a conversation unlike any you have ever had. You will be listened to with rapt attention and viewed as a whole, resourceful person--not a problem to solved or something broken to fixed. There will be space for you to hear yourself and examine your thoughts. Questions and observations will enable you to look at your situation from a new perspective, one with new possibilities for action. You will gain insights that lead to new ways of being and behaving. You become a more mindful expert on yourself.
