The world can seem really crazy these days. How do we figure out our place in it? And how can we be a force for good, and still take care of ourselves, our world and the people around us? These questions may seem obvious, but the answers are decidedly not. And they’re different for everyone. As a certified professional coach, I help people consider and come up with their own answers, and develop the tools that allow them to adjust their answers and consider the range of questions that come up as circumstances change.
In addition to coaching, I’m also a human rights lawyer and former journalist. I draw on my work and career change experience, but most importantly, I help clients work with and transform their own experiences so they can craft their own futures.
I work with career changers, disgruntled lawyers, burnt-out service providers and stressed leaders of all types, especially those navigating the nonprofit world. I believe that to do good in the world we must also take care of ourselves and the world around us, and I help committed professionals and activists figure out how to make their work not only sustainable, but a source of joy that can nourish them and their communities.
I received my coach training through the International Coach Federation (ICF) Accredited Leadership That Works’ Coaching for Transformation program. I’ve also trained in Mediation with the New York Peace Institute and have a Certificate in Positive Psychology. I have additional training in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and Nonviolent Communication. I completed the Rockwood Institute’s Advanced Art of Leadership fellowship programs and am a Rockwood-affiliated professional coach.
I’m a graduate of New York University School of Law, Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, and Dartmouth College.
