My clients often tell me when they move from Employee to Entrepreneur that they fear failure. I tell them what I find more typically is a fear of success, “how will I manage my time?”, “how will I manage the money”, “how will I stay motivated to be enthusiastic with a growing book of business?” Well I made that transition myself many years ago and can help you do it successfully too.
After working with thousands of individuals I have proven to help people move through the ups and downs of a fast-paced life to find career fulfillment and financial independence. My background is in mental health and Employee Assistance and I know that often anxiety, stress, personal challenges and negative self-talk can slow down the most gifted business owners.
Most recently I was an Onsite Employee Coach and Consultant at the International Headquarters of Procter & Gamble in Cincinnati, OH. My focus in my Coaching business and in my private practice is helping people become empowered to overcome life’s stressors and to reach their full potential. I have presented seminars both locally and nationally on wellness topics, communication effectiveness and managing change, among others.
I trained as a Coach through CoachU in 1998 in the early days of coaching as a profession. My own business coach showed me the value of having a trusted mentor and guide along the way. The encouragement and accountability helped me realize my own business and take the necessary risks.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Miami University of Ohio and obtained my Masters in Counseling from East Tennessee State University. I am Licensed as a Professional Counselor, certified in Employee Assistance, Neurolinquistic Programming (NLP), and am very experienced in techniques that help people grow. I am a member of the International Coaching Federation, the American Mental Health Counselors Association and the Employee Assistance Professionals Association.
