Having walked the path of CTI training and certification, I can help you realize your potential as a certified coach, and accelerate the journey from where you are to where you want to be.  As a role model for co-active coaching best practices, I compassionately coach and guide certification candidates to identify and remove the perceived obstacles and limiting beliefs that stifle growth and inhibit performance - in certification and in life.   

My natural enthusiasm and passion for facilitating transformative processes in others emerged following a near death experience. My presence fosters safety and vulnerability, and I'm known to substantively deepen the personal discovery process.  Anchored in practical spirituality and using an intuitive approach, I specialize in:  
• growing self-confidence and addressing negative self-esteem, 
• cultivating deeper levels of authenticity and presence, and
• increasing emotional and spiritual intelligence.  

I regularly provide coaching and management consulting services to CTI certification candidates, individuals, and organizations.  

During a 25+ year career in the high-tech and professional services industries, I was often the designated go-to person to introduce and champion new change initiatives.  In positions ranging from Controller to Vice-President to HR Consulting Partner, I have experienced and helped individuals, departments and companies navigate and transcend the barriers that emerge when change is required. With a deep functional background in human resourcesaccounting and information technology, I integrate an educated awareness of business issues with an innate understanding of human behavior and dynamics. Prior Corporate Experience

My coaching and consulting practice focuses on positive change and movement.  My passion is helping individuals and business leaders elevate their emotional and spiritual intelligence so they consciously and more easily attain personal and business goals.

The Story Behind Awaken Delight...

Delight awakened within me as I started walking the path of CTI study and certification. Bread crumbs started showing up on day 1 as sweet harbingers of a future defining moment. I was experiencing unexpected growth and delight at a deep soul level.  

Having just completed the Foundations course, I was sitting in the sacred closing circle on day 3 with 25 beloved classmates, tenderly held in the emotionally safe container created by our leaders and assistants. Classmates generously shared their acknowledgements and gratitude. 

When it came to my turn, tears of joy started flowing down my cheeks as I declared, "It's only taken me forty-plus years to realize what I'm here for; I'm here to be a coach."  

My soul soared, grateful for being truly seen, heard and acknowledged. Saboteurs and my ever helpful mini-mind rushed in to remind me that fear and uncertainty, and many of their not-so-distant cousins were in town and ready to partner with me for the journey. I persevered!

Since receiving my CPCC in 2007, I've completed the ORSC curriculum at the Center for Right Relationship and the executive coaching curriculum at Envision Global Leadership. I've completed course work in ontological coaching and studied at Team Coaching International with Phil Sandahl, CTI Co-Active Coaching author and course leader. I'm also a certified Connection Practice coach and trainer. It is truly my honor to hold sacred space for you and accompany you on this part of your journey.

I've hosted thousands of hours of sessions for hundreds of coaching clients globally and am currently on track for MCC in 2021.
