Thanks for your interest in finding out more about me. I am an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) through the International Coaching Federation (ICF). As a coach, I partner with you in creating your best life yet. I serve as a private practitioner working with a broad range of clients. In addition to being a Professional Life Coach, I'm also an Ordained Minister and Pastor with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and a certified coach and coach trainier with my denomination. Because of this, I work with my clients by providing a holistic approach to life coaching. As a collaborative, solution-focused Life Coach, I provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I also integrate a variety of coaching techniques and helpful assignments to offer a highly-personalized program custom-designed for you. With compassion and understanding, I work with you to help build on your strengths and attain the personal growth you are committed to achieving.
I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Theology, from Concordia University in Irvine, CA, and my Master of Divinity, at The Lutheran Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, PA. Currently, I am pursuing my Doctorate of Education in Organizational Leadership at Northcentral University in La Jolla, CA. I anticipate graduating the end of 2021.
Certifications, Additional Training & Awards
I received my ACC credential through the International Coach Federation. To receive that credential, I received coaching training from the Life Coach Institute of Orange County (CA) and CoachNet Global, LLC. I received additional training through the Robbins-Madanes Training (RMT), the official coach training of Anthony "Tony" Robbins, and am currently pursuing more training through RMT. I am also working on my Professional Certified Coach from the ICF and am enrolled in a 9-month End of Life and Grief Coaching course to become a certified End of Life Coach.
As you can see, I'm not a coach who took one course and was done, but I believe in ongoing coach training and have a coach myself. All of this shows my commitment to the profession and helps me be a better coach for you!
