You may think that you're capable of transforming. I absolutely know it. I believe in your ability to change your life for the better and in your potential to live life powerfully and live a life you love.
When you work with me, you can expect honest conversations, loving disruption, and tangible results. Together, we co-create your journey of self-discovery. You're behind the driving wheel of your life and I'm your trusty navigator. You'll use whole-brain thinking to get clarity on what you want and why, set clear goals, and you'll take specific, committed action. I will challenge your limiting beliefs and you will create new habits that lead to incredible outcomes.
Having spent so long turning around dysfunction, building culture from the ground up, and creating award-winning teams, I know that great leadership is the key to a better world.
I've taught and coached professionals and creatives in project management, leadership, and team-working skills for over a decade. I've worked on multi-million dollar projects but I know what it's like to feel successful yet empty, unfulfilled, and burnt out. I'm happily married but I also know what it's like to go through a separation and divorce. Vancouver is now my home but I know what it's like to leave friends and family, move half-way around the world, and build a new life and career from scratch. I'm a professional violinist but I know what it's like to feel "imposter syndrome". I'm in a unique position to help you realize your potential to manage and lead from your heart as well as your head, and to get the most in the areas that matter to you.
You will live an even more positive, happy, and mentally well life. You will start to FEEL different every day - more like a fearless and authentic leader and less like an overwhelmed, frustrated, stressed-out hot mess who is barely holding on.
Don't deprive the world of your awesomeness.

"Louise was the lighthouse in the ocean for me in the past ten months. Before our journey started, I felt lost and out of touch with my intuition. I was confused with my life direction, and I was frustrated with myself for not being able to make sensible decisions. During our journey together, she helped me to work through my blockage by discovering new possibilities and presenting a new alternative through various coaching conversations and techniques. Her process inspired and encouraged me to see EVERYTHING from a different perspective. This created clarity, certainty, and freedom within me - and these feelings are powerful and priceless! As a result of our work together, my most significant success is to be true to myself while comfortably making peace with uncertainty in ALL and ANY situation. I highly recommend Louise to anyone who is seeking enlightenment to live a fulfilled life."Anonymous
I worked with Louise as my coach for the past 6 months and think she is a skilled coach. I found her to be patient and supportive as I identified and worked through my limiting beliefs in many different areas of my life. She was accepting of my strengths and weaknesses and remained open as I shared vulnerable aspects of my life. I was impressed with her skill at guiding me to the root of an issue or thought and she offered valuable feedback and insight that I continue to apply in my day-to-day life. Thanks Louise!Joanne
This isnt the first time I enlist a coach to help me work through professional challenges, but this is the first time I enter into a coaching engagement with a specific purpose in mind. I had just purchased a new business, and I knew I had to quickly evolve as a leader to realize the value in this move. With her clear, consistent and supportive approach, Louise provided the safe space and structure for the coaching sessions. This allowed me to explore my needs, go to places intellectually and emotionally that I might have otherwise avoided, and discover my latent strengths, skills and attitudes needed to grow to address these needs. Always respectful, professional, and resourceful, Louise brought out the right tools at the right time for any given situation. As promised, she never gave me the answers, but helped me see that they were in me the whole time. Working with Louise not only generated value within our coaching sessions but gave me the space to understand how to sustain this learning and growth into the future. While Im singing high praise for Louises collaboration now, check with me in the years to come, when I expect the value of our work together to have multiplied significantly.Jim Brosseau
Louise is a fantastic coach! She really cares about her clients and formulates a collaborative plan with them to go after what they really want. The questions she asks help you dig deep and find out what really motivates you and what is authentic to your heart and soul. I credit Louise with a lot of big shifts I see in my life and I continue to reap the results of her coaching! Without hesitation I would definitely recommend anyone who is hungry for growth and moving forward to contact Louise!Jeremy Klingbeil
"Before working with Louise, I had been stuck in my career even though I already made a career change. I had just moved continents, leaving my family, friends and dear colleagues behind which was difficult, I was intensively studying at school, and I was living with someone for the first time. I was questioning my career and what I wanted, which was very emotionally draining. I was scared to look for a job and was lacking in confidence. I was overwhelmed with everything and didn't know whether I had room in my life for coaching. After making a commitment to myself and during my journey with Louise, I realized more that it's OK to listen to my body and to look after myself, and not just to always look out for others. Most importantly, I learnt that it's OK to be myself and only I know what's best for me - and to trust and love myself. Now, I'm more confident, more open, and more flexible. I'm actively taking steps towards what I want, which fills me with gratitude and positivity. I know that I have the resources I need to achieve my vision and that I don't have to do it alone. Thank you, Louise!Yana
I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Louise. She was a strong support as I was making an important life-transition. I had recently completed a difficult project that left me feeling very burnt out. Louise was able to work with me at my own pace and kept a positive attitude which was infectious. She was always understanding of my process, being able to grasp what was important and transform it into another puzzle piece being set in place. She brought my focus and attention back to my values, encouraging me to do things which had meaning and brought joy. I am now living the life which we began to outline from our very first session. I would encourage anyone who wants to bring their life and goals to the next level, to work with Louise as their coach!Adriana Luhovy
Louise is a talented and insightful coach and guide. She's not always easy on you but that's for the best as we all need a little tough love sometimes. She provides that voice in the struggle that helps you stay focused while suggesting alternative ways of looking at things to help overcome your roadblocks. The composition of our meetings (before, during, and after) really helped me to clarify and focus on the issues that were important to me. It gave structure to our discussions and provided useful reminders to help me stick with the things that we'd discussed. Louise's greatest strength is that she finds ways for you to figure out your own solutions. I've worked with other coaches but have not had nearly the same level of success. I highly recommend her if you are looking for ways to improve your performance or to get past personal impedimentsWinney Chow
Working with Louise was an absolute delight. She is able to guide the sessions in such a way where you find clarity and feel motivated from finding answers within yourself. She actively listens and asks the right questions that allow you to reach areas in your mind that you were not conscious about and then helps set action steps to make changes to reach your goals. Through our coaching journey together, I reached many goals: some that I intended to reach, and some that emerged from the process that were equally or even more important. Thanks, Louise, for this great experience.Fabiola Ruiz O.
