Are you an academic searching for more work-life balance? Are you feeling isolated or overwhelmed? Or are you just looking for more clarity and accountability? Rates of burnout and dissatisfaction run high for academics as they juggle competing demands and navigate a sea of murky expectations. Regardless of one’s career stage, academics need more social support and connection to their own internal guidance.

My own path has brought me to life coaching, which helps people align with their core values and move towards their higher purpose. Within each individual lies the solutions to create a life filled with balance, ease, and joy. My clients seek to make big changes and become their most authentic selves. Using a playful, creative approach, I will champion, challenge, and collaborate with you to clarify your vision and identify strategies to get there. As your coach, I will be your partner on this journey of transformation.

Is coaching the same as therapy?: No, coaching is not therapy. Coaching focuses on strategic planning and personal growth and does not attempt to heal emotional trauma. Coaches regularly refer clients to other professionals for issues that are better suited for a therapeutic relationship.
