My coaching philosophy focuses on empowerment.
I employ a hybrid/blended type of coaching. Blended coaching is essentially taking coaching competencies and prior expertise and creating a hybrid type of coaching process.
I work with my clients by using a 'coaching through questions' style/method which allows the client to explore their own thoughts and barriers. This enables them to lead to their own solutions through self-realization & self-reflection through empowerment.

Your Greatest Self.
The hardest part of any challenge is 'taking on' the challenge itself. Once you can break down the barriers, you will discover parts of yourself that you've never channeled before. Don't let the fear of moving forward stand in your way of being your greatest self.
