About Me & My Practice

Not too long ago, I thought I had "made it" - I had a husband who is also my best friend, a spirited and funny daughter, a close group of family and friends, and a senior HR role at a start-up that gave me challenging responsibilities and a nice paycheck, to boot.  What more could I want? 

But if you looked just under the surface, you would have seen a woman who at times was just barely holding it together.  I was super stressed and anxious, barely slept, and had ongoing stomach pains that no one could diagnose.  When I spent time with my loved ones, I was always distracted by my worries or felt like a floating entity in the room, not really engaged with what was going on.  And I felt a desire for "more," though I wasn't sure what "more" looked like. 

I was torn between my desires and thinking I "had" to be grateful, but finally, my desires won out.  I realized I wanted to feel like me again, and to do so, I needed to get reacquainted with the REAL me, the one that wasn't dulled down by life's stresses.  Over time though, I made progress, and then attending coach training was the icing on the cake.  Trust me, I still have moments where I think I'm going to lose it, but now I have the tools and methods to help get me through these moments so I feel more in control of my thoughts and consciously react vs. having an outburst.

More than anything, I want my coaching business to help moms who are done struggling and just getting by.  I want to combine my own personal experience, HR career experience, & coach training to reintroduce you to YOU, so you can start living presently and joyfully again!

I have an MBA from NYU and 14 years of Human Resources experience in large and small companies.  I spent most of these years developing talent by coaching and guiding employees on various topics: career, leadership skills, and even work/life balance.  I trained with Leadership That Works under a program called Coaching for Transformation. I look forward to working with you!
