I’m on to new endeavors!
After nearly a decade of running World Tree Coaching, I am no longer providing individual coaching services. To learn more about what I’m up to these days – and the work I am currently doing supporting individuals, both the globally mobile and people who’re staying put, read here.
Find Success With A Personalized Approach
Are you feeling lost?
Individual coaching is a forward-thinking, inspirational and solution oriented approach for taking on life’s challenging moments. No matter where you are in this moment, when you work with me you will feel supported, engaged and challenged within an open, fun, creative and accepting space.
Individual Coaching with World Tree Coaching Is:
Different from counseling or therapy.
While both coaching and therapy are designed to help you live to your fullest potential, coaching is unique in that it helps you reach your goals as you define them while inviting you to step in to new challenges and take risks towards growth.
Coaching does not provide mental health assessment, diagnosis or treatment. In coaching, we may talk about what’s worked or not worked for you in the past, but we do not focus on long-term personal or family of origin issues. Coaching does not treat substance abuse, provide crisis intervention or domestic violence counseling.
In the event that I feel you would better benefit from work with a counselor or psychotherapist, I will make every effort to refer you to the appropriate resource.
A judgment-free place to be your truest self.
I am invested in supporting you in bringing your highest and best self into the light as you define it. With coaching, there is never a need to feel shame from the setbacks you’ve faced. We are perfectly imperfect works in progress and it’s awesome!
An empowering, positive experience.
Too often coaching has the reputation of “kicking you into shape.” I’ll admit I’m not that kind of coach. Two fundamental words that guide my work are – honestly and gently. I am compassionate. I believe in building people up by focusing on what they’re doing well. And I am honest, but not harsh. I know you are smart and savvy and can totally handle being nudged to go big without being made to feel small.
You - taking charge of your life.
One of the greatest gifts of coaching is the freedom the process offers. Coaching provides you with an incredibly flexible and creative opportunity to bring whatever you want to the table. I’m not here to tell you what to think, to do, or to feel. I’m here to provide a space for you to define what you want out of life and then support you in stepping forward into what you most desire.
I always tell my clients, “The only person creating the definition of your life is you.” This is an especially powerful reminder to expats because we so often feel like our lives are controlled by someone else’s work, timeline or needs. With coaching you’ll learn new ways to maintain balance between the ambiguity of a global lifestyle and developing intentional strategies for creating the life you want to lead.
Deeply-rooted, long-lasting change.
A significant portion of my coaching practice is based in helping people live more mindfully. To that end, much of my work is dedicated to helping my clients build a better foundation for understanding their thoughts and emotional patterns, raising awareness of and building insight around those patterns and developing strategies for using that awareness for a more fulfilling daily life. It is change that lasts a lifetime. As one of my clients once said,”It’s the sort of thing you can’t unlearn.”
I help people find a sense of home no matter where life takes them.
I bring optimism and compassion into a space in which we are working together. I believe in you – you are whole, capable, experienced and brilliant. Through a lens of love and curiosity, I invite you to step into a space where you can use those traits to get where you want to be.
I whole-heartedly believe that the answer to what home means to each of us in already within us. I will help you learn to mindfully turn toward what you’re experiencing so that you can see more clearly the path beneath your feet. I will help you learn to recognize and accept what’s working well. And, I support you in honestly and gently refocusing towards your inner sense of home when you find what you’re currently doing has stopped serving you well.
My approach is open, authentic, enthusiastic, nurturing and collaborative.
