As a Hudson Institute-trained professional coach  and having explored a different career myself, I offer one-on-one coaching with clients to develop and achieve their professional goals. I use an incisive method of inquiry that uncovers deep insight into motivation and behavior in the workplace, leveraging my background in human cognition combined with my prior experience as an in-house coach to enable clients efficiently and effectively

Coaching engagements may be one-time sessions or an engagement with a series of 4-12 sessions, depending on the individual and their goals. Sessions are biweekly for 50 minutes over video conferencing or by phone, or can be in-person for individuals in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area. The cost of coaching may be partially or fully covered by one's workplace, particularly for individuals in more senior roles and/or with a promising trajectory.

Coaching focus areas include:   

  • Identifying workplace strengths and blind spots: Developing greater insight into professional strengths and areas for development

  • Sustaining work-life balance: Overcoming burnout and implementing sustainability strategies

  • Developing a confident mindset: Building openness to professional challenges and risks

  • Making career changes: Understanding motivated abilities and vocational aspirations for a more authentic career path

Coaching is a consulting service, not a clinical one. Coaching is not a substitute for therapy. While therapy focuses on modifying thoughts and behavior or on healing and resolving emotional challenges, coaching typically involves specific goals other than assessing or improving one's mental health.

To avoid any conflict between coaching and mental health care:

  • I limit my scope of coaching to professional goals & workplace development only (e.g., a physician who is considering leaving medicine for another career, a mid-career professional who has been passed up for a promotion, etc.).

  • I do not offer "life coaching" or "relationship coaching", which may be construed as individual therapy or couples therapy. Information on therapy with me can be found here. 

  • I do not accept clients for coaching who have acute mental health needs, as these may be better suited for a mental health evaluation.

  • I only accept coaching clients with chronic mental health conditions if they are currently in the care of a physician or therapist.
