leadership coaching

Are you feeling stuck and in need of a new direction, going through a career change, stepping into a leadership role, or want to overcome fear and self-doubt? What if there was someone who could help you unlock your inner potential, not just through motivational quotes or feel-good maxims, but through real life strategies to assist in reorienting your life to its true North?


You have come to the right place, and it's time to quit playing small and being comfortable. It is time to awaken the greatness. As Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI says “Man was created for greatness—for God himself; he was created to be filled by God. But his heart is too small for the greatness to which it is destined. It must be stretched.”

That's what Catholic confidence and leadership coaching is. Let me help you elevate your confidence in your leadership capability, advancing your career, or in making decisions today.


There is a saint inside us all, and God has a plan for your life. Let's unlock it confidently together.

The desire for God is written in the human heart, because man is created by God and for God; and God never ceases to draw man to himself. Only in God will he find the truth and happiness he never stops searching for… (CCC 27)

What is coaching?

Having a coach is like having a personal strategist who works with you to challenge, guide, and celebrate you. There are many different kinds of coaches: athletic, leadership, life, and more. I specialize in confidence coaching, helping you to reach your full potential. As your coach, my job is to help break you out of your usual rut. I don't fix broken lives; I break lives open!

What's the difference with Catholic coaching?

As a dedicated Catholic, my coaching centers on confidence building, particularly the kind of confidence that can be found in Christ. But that doesn't mean you have to be religious or work in a religious field to benefit from Catholic coaching! I draw on religious themes to illustrate various lessons, particularly on awakening the saint inside us all.

Who can benefit from coaching?

Everyone! While many of my coaching clients are in professional settings needing assistance with confident leadership, coaching can benefit anyone who is looking to confidently fulfill their God-given calling.

What can I expect from coaching?

Coaching is all about conversations. I will ask a lot of questions to help you discover yourself in order to see the unique person you were created to be and to confidently share that person with the world. At the same time, I'll be listening and coming up with a game plan or strategy to help you continue to grow in your confidence and awaken the saint inside of you. This isn't feel good fluff; this is hard work that will challenge you and get the results you want. Confidence is the cornerstone of life, faith, and leadership, and I can help you get there.
