Why I coach – I get to help people change their lives!  It's that simple.  Coaching empowers people to grow and accomplish what they want.  Coaching happens in a trusting relationship where I, the coach, listen deeply to my clients, help them discover what lies at the heart of the issue they're facing, and draw on their own insights and wisdom to lay out a plan of action.  It's a dynamic encounter where both coach and client get to experience the Holy Spirit enlightening, empowering and equipping us to live into God's purpose for our lives.
