Reimagining Possibilities in Mid-life and Beyond

About Me

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
~~ Marianne Williamson

What is Coaching?

First of all, coaching is not therapy, counseling or advice.  Coaching is a future-oriented process that focuses on the wants and needs of the client.  All clients are presumed to be creative, resourceful and whole; entirely capable of creating change in their lives.
