I have 20+ years of experience in the field of education and coaching. Additionally, I have completed several hours of mindfulness training, to include specific training to support those who are Neurodiverse. I have training in areas of mental health to support a holistic approach to working with my clients, knowing that all areas of life are connected to create wellbeing.
I use multiple approaches when working with my clients, knowing individuals are most successful when provided with alternative ways of approaching a situation or task. I believe each person has a unique learning style, and invests the time to build a relationship with my clients to create a safe environment. I have developed a particular interest in working with clients who benefit from strategies to cope with stress and anxiety, in addition to support with executive function skills. I enjoy teaching clients skills for greater self & emotion regulation and developing greater self-awareness. I cultivate a learning and coaching environment that reflects a strengths based and growth mindset approach.
I am a member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF), Chesapeake Bay Organizational Development Network (CBODN), am the co-leader of the new DC Metro Association for Talent Development (ATD) Community of Practice Wellbeing@Work, and have worked as adjunct faculty at Marymount University. In addition to my role coaching, I am a Trauma-Informed Yoga and Mindfulness Instructor and have my E-RYT-200 certification. I present and teach on topics related to Coaching, Neurodiveristy, Stress Management, Mindfulness and Wellbeing. I have my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and an M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction.
When I’m not working, I enjoy being in the outdoors, hiking, kayaking, spending time with my rescue dog or reading a good book under a tree.
