My Coaching Style

I am a teacher of students with special needs and ADHD as well as a parent of a special needs child.  Everyone is different and everyone deserves to be heard. The best part about coaching is that it provides a safe, secure space for people to speak and for someone to listen.    I coach with respect and understanding. Everyone has a story to tell, and every story is unique to that person. 

Coaching is a partnership between the coach and client.   Together we create new perspectives, allowing for more opportunities and possibilities.
