My Approach

I start the coaching partnership with exercises that facilitate self-reflection. This allows you to uncover what you wish to accomplish and what is currently interfering with that goal. Next, we’ll begin the process of discovering what is important to you and what you will fulfill in doing the work.

My sessions are conducted via phone or remotely. I’ll work with your schedule to make our meetings convenient and private.

About Me

I am a Hudson Institute Certified Life and Executive Coach with a background in Buddhist contemplative training and teaching. As a professional chaplain, I previously worked in hospitals and palliative care settings. I have also served in nonprofit executive and board leadership roles. Now I coach individuals and teams as they design new directions, develop collaborative strengths, and renew purpose in their lives and work.

As co-founder of Awareness Enabled Life Positioning in Shenzhen, China, I offer training in mindful awareness, altruism, and leadership practices for businesses; and am adjunct faculty at the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University, where I instruct MBA students in “Mindful Awareness for the Business Leader.” I also lead workshops internationally on personal transformation.

An area of growing interest for me is the field of sustainability—training in communication and leadership for the challenges ahead.
