My Values & Beliefs

You can Find Success In A Mess!

The Lord was with Joseph, and he was a successful man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian. And his master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord made all he did to prosper in his hand. So Joseph found favor in his sight, and served him. Then he made him overseer of his house, and all that he had he put under his authority. —Genesis 39:2-5 (NKJV)

Your Skills and Talent Is An Answer To Sombody's Problem

The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge, for the ears of the wise seek it out. A gift opens the way and ushers the giver into the presence of the great. —Proverbs 18: 15-16  (NiV)

You Are Graced For Success!

 We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.. —Romans 12: –8 (NiV)

My Approach

I utilize a Holistic coaching style. This style takes into account the whole person. Recognizing the multiple domains of life, this approach is concerned with all aspects of a client’s life.

In this qualitative study,  I want all of my clients to leave:

  • feeling understood
  • confident in our coach-client relationship
  • with a list of their desires, goals and objectives
  • with a list of identified solutions
  • enhanced well being/functioning across the whole person (e.g., mind, body, feelings and spirit)
  • enhanced well being/functioning across multiple domains (e.g., family, work, home, health, etc.)
