PPCC -Concordia University, Certified Transformational Recovery Coach, Integrated Harm Reduction Certification- Center for Optimal Living
I work with Creative Professionals who are looking for support, guidance and honest feedback when making career decisions. I help you untangle obstacles such as unclear strategies for finding jobs or being more successful in your profession, interpersonal difficulties that take all your energy, making it in the music or film world, creative blocks we all experience as artists, finishing a novel, getting published or balancing your personal life.
My approach to Coaching centers around interactive-experiential learning while helping my clients achieve goals. Some of the goals could include strategies around the struggle of making a living at what you love, unraveling patterns of difficult relationships that affect you, or those at a crossroads in need of clearer ideas of what to do next. I do this by first helping creatives sort out what values are at the core of who they are and when that becomes clearer, my clients begin to make different decisions, and these actions accelerate the process of reaching realistic goals. When goals are achieved big and small, it unleashes an amazing momentum and potential.
As a professional singer/songwriter and writer, I have been performing for over 20 years. I have worked professionally in other creative fields such as; Film (Documentary and Feature), Television, the Music Industry, Performance Art and Theatre therefore I have a unique position for creative entrepreneurs and media/arts/entertainment- business people and as Life Coach. For parents, I have raised my daughter while being a creative person! You can do it, I can help. I am a graduate of Concordia University's Professional and Personal Certified Coach (PPCC) program. A member of ICF (International Coach Federation) my focus is on Career, Life and Creativity Coaching as well as giving Workshops.
I coach my clients so that you can have a great creative life, cut through all the confusion, get focused and feel supported in a way that will accelerate your personal journey.
