Coaching provides a confidential, non-judgmental, and self-reflective space for listening, questioning, challenging, exploring, and action planning.
My coaching style is best described as a client-centered partnership. I believe my clients have the resources within themselves to find a way forward. I provide them with the relationship and support needed to achieve their potential and create sustainable lasting change. I firmly believe that to achieve extraordinary and sustainable change, clients must make a connection between their outer goals with their inner values and purpose.
Through coaching, I help my clients address self-limiting beliefs, enabling new possibilities and behavioral change. I help them view things with new and clearer perspectives, and in a more positive and less limiting way, allowing them to take responsibility for what they do with them, increasing their self-belief and confidence.
My clients are ready for change, but even more importantly, they are ready to be challenged and committed to something new. They are ready to make things happen!

In general, a counselor seeks to discover issues in the client's past that are blocking them from success. Special techniques and tools are used to understand these issues and bring healing and closure to them so that the client may move ahead. While coaches and counselors may use many of the same dialog techniques, coaching begins in the present and is future-oriented.
Mentors are often people we admire who have “been there, done that.” They can “show us the ropes,” but tend to use their own model of success as a guide based on what worked for them. Mentors have expertise in a particular area and they share that learning with a mentee. Mentors provide knowledge, advise, guide, correct, and encourage within their field of expertise, whereas a coach with good discovery, change, and communication skills can coach anyone.
In general, consultants are viewed as experts who are paid to diagnose a problem and propose a solution. Once the project is done, consultants move on to the next company or project.
Coaches also focus on solutions but draw solutions out of their clients. They see their clients as an expert. The coach's expertise is in the coaching process and that is how they help clients create their own plan of action and implement it.
