What do you like best about coaching?

Coaching is an incredible way to identify what is inhibiting one from living a better life. I love that it allows me to journey alongside people as they seek to grow and become the best versions of themselves.  

Why did you choose to do coaching?

Having had a number of coaches in my own life, I have experienced the blessing it is to have someone listen and guide you through things. Life can be wild and rough sometimes and I believe we need each other to get through it. Coaching has helped me personally get through depression, anxiety, heartbreak, betrayal and family conflict. It has helped me form healthy habits, gain clearer direction and make progress in different areas of my life. I’ve fought hard for my peace and happiness, and I’m here to help others do the same.

How do you recharge on your day off? 

I always start my day with a dip in the ocean. After that I might read or write, make some nourishing food, dream a little, ponder a little, play the guitar, or go climbing. I like to end my day with a walk to watch the sunset or moonrise. Spending time with my closest people always fills my cup, so I’ll add them in wherever I can. 

What are your three favorite things?

Camping, surfing, and a hearty bowl of daal… all in the company of good friends.
