I coach lawyers, executives, and career professionals.
What would your organization look like if everyone were operating at peak performance?
Working with a coach, whether you’re an attorney, actor or athlete, greatly enhances performance. Coaching is a partnership designed to elicit powerful solutions to increase existing strengths and address any performance-related concerns at any level.
Together, we tackle areas of your professional and personal life that feel stagnant or simply needs improvement.
I am a professional coach with a national practice, helping clients in all walks of life achieve career satisfaction, polish marketing skills, increase confidence, improve work/life balance and rediscover their sense of purpose and joy. During my 20th year of practicing law, I made the decision to become a coach. After reinventing myself several times and transitioning from deeply unhappy lawyer to one with a great sense of purpose and direction, I wanted to help others do the same in their careers and lives. I am certifed by the International Coach Federation and a former board member of the Philadelphia chapter. I have successfully coached a best-selling author, lawyers, accountants, and chief executives in many industries. I graduated from Temple University School of Law in Philadelphia and the College of Executive Coaching in California.
