My Approach as a Coach

As a coach, I bring a methodical approach to learning and growth where we engage in a collaborative and reflective process to generate new levels of awareness, accountability, and purpose in achieving positive outcomes with long-lasting impact.

I was trained as a Certified Organizational Coach (COC) at the University of British Columbia and have obtained my Associate Certified Coach (ACC) designation with the International Coaching Federation.

My practice draws on research in positive psychology and behavioural change, and I bring different frameworks, resources, and tools into our work together when it fits.

My approach is integrative and holistic in nature — part of this involves looking inward to what you’re thinking, feeling, and experiencing, and part of this also looks outward to the social dynamics taking place around you. Your values, beliefs, and behaviours are all welcome on the table, and over the entire journey working together, we are working with your agenda. My role is to help you gain greater awareness and clarity, and to create the conditions that take you to insight and action.

On a whole, I ascribe to an “n of 1” philosophy when it comes to personal and professional development which is to say that I believe there is no one-size-fits-all approach, but that there is an approach that works for each individual. At the core of my belief system as a coach is that you already hold an internal wisdom and that coaching is a way to help you uncover this way of knowing that in turn helps you reach higher potential in the areas of your life that matter most to you.
