Coaching

My coaching relationships are based on a thoughtful, motivating agreement developed with your goals and vision at the center. It builds on your existing skills to resolve challenges, access internal and external resources, and develop consistent, life-long habits. Coaching focuses on understanding how feelings and thoughts impact our actions.

My coaching approach is based on a variety of proven models, multiculturalism, spiritual principles, and life lessons. A value add is exploring your successes and blocks through an equity lens that takes into account the impact of conscious and unconscious biases still present in society. I love partnering with courageous, passionate people who are ready to commit to their precious health and life goals and who no longer want to play small.

How I Can Assist You

  • Hope and excitement about achieving your significant personal and professional goals.
  • Feedback on options with a fresh, seasoned perspective.
  • Ongoing support and an accountability process that works with your strengths.

How it Works

  • We schedule an initial meeting where a contract is developed with your goals, vision, a feedback process and best times to speak.
  • The phone or video program sessions focus on timely issues so you reach your goals and aspirations.

I bring a systems approach to my coaching, seeing clients in the midst of their own systems (work, family, etc.); assisting them to integrate their purpose and goals as non-negotiable gifts to the world.

It is an honor to be on the roster of coaches used by Windcall Residency Program.

While I provide coaching that is tailored to each person, clients often require assistance in the following areas:

Testimonials

Linda and I have been working together for about eight years now. She has coached me through major life goals: writing my MA thesis, running for office, losing a parent, and losing a job. I struggle with self-care and working with Linda helps me stay focused on caring for myself in spite of what is happening in my life, and to keep moving toward my goals, sometimes fast and sometimes slowly, but making progress. It helps to have someone who lovingly holds me accountable to my goals.
