A life coach, not unlike a sports or fitness coach, is your partner. A coach is someone who supports you and, more importantly, offers you the tools to create change.
As a solution-focussed coach, I work with you or your group to identify areas of improvement. We work together to build realistic action plans to get you where you want to be and get the results you have been seeking. It’s that simple.
My goal is to help you become very clear about where you are right now, where you want to be and how you want to get there. Erickson Coach training is solution-focussed. Our goal, together, is to find ways for you to feel more effective.
And I hope that we can also have a few laughs along the way! After all, growth is a very enjoyable and rewarding experience!

Solution-based coaching is about identifying where you are, where you want to be and how you are going to get there. Coaching is a partnership of coach and client to build a plan to identify, clarify, achieve and accelerate the results in any chosen life area – career, personal development, relationships or wellness.

Working with a life coach is about being a leader in your own life.
Through the coaching process you will discover, define and refine your plans, goals and an overall life strategy to accelerate the results that you are seeking.
My love of psychology is what drew me to coaching. In addition to a degree in Psychology, I am an Erickson trained professional coach and I bring several years of work in both career counselling and sales to my coaching practice.

In coaching, we seldom spend time analyzing the past. Coaching is not about diagnosis or treating clinical symptoms.
Coaching has a present and future focus. Coaching is about finding solutions and concentrates on “how” to move from where you are right now to a place that encompasses what is truly important to you. Coaching helps you plan, organize, prioritize and most importantly, act.
Coaches are trained in moving you toward action and solutions in your life, your career, your workplace and your business. Coaching is about defining success and building realistic action plans so that you can be living out that success in all areas of your life.
And, let’s face it, we live in a world of distractions. And those distractions can keep us from being clear on what we really want and how we can get there!
We all have times when we feel “stuck” or disconnected from what we truly want. We all seek coaching for different reasons. There are common reasons for working with a coach such as during career shifts, embarking on a new business or project; however seeking coaching can be as simply because you feel you want more out of your life or you would like to become “unstuck” if you are hitting a wall with a particular goal or direction.
Having a neutral, objective professional who can help you clearly focus and articulate what is important to you can help you accelerate the results you want and deserve!
Coaching sessions are generally 45-60 minutes in length.
Although you will have a larger overall goal in coaching, every session has its own goal and with each session, you will walk away with some type of action that will help move you in the direction of achieving that larger goal.
Individual coaching is very personal and the number of sessions will depend on your coaching goals. The most common coaching program is 3 months. However, coaching can produce results in as little as one session.
My coaching programs are also customizable to your needs. As a coach, I am your partner and we work together to personalize a program that is specific to your particular needs, goals and timeline.
I have loved psychology since the first course I took in high school. After I completed a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology, I spent the next 10 years working in employment programs as a career counsellor and group facilitator. During that time, I had the opportunity to continue training and coursework in counselling, instructional design, group facilitation, teamwork, supervisory skills and organizational change.
As our family life was getting busier, I had a strong desire to work closer to home and self-employment had been calling me. Five years ago, I started working and coaching a team with one of the largest direct sales companies in Canada. And although I love sales, the coaching and training aspect of direct sales was what I enjoyed even more. When the opportunity arose to go back to school and receive my professional coaching designation at Erickson College International arose, I jumped at it!
And, here’s a little bit of fun stuff about me….
If I wasn’t living out my dream job as a coach, my other dream jobs would be:
» Dance Instructor – I grew up spending every moment I possibly could in a dance studio
» Professional Baseball Volunteer – I am one of those “uniform-washin’, Gatorade gettin’, always cheerin’” baseball Moms and I love every minute of it!
» Sports Car Designer – Mustangs and Camaros are just plain awesome
» Comedy writer – I love to make people laugh and the poor person who laughs at one of my jokes is likely stuck with me for the rest of the evening!
» Anything where I could watch airplanes all day – but ironically, flying scares me to death – yup, even coaches work with coaches on our own stuff!
