I offer training facilitation and leadership, career, and mentor coaching to a broad range of individuals and organizations.
My expertise includes Motivational Interviewing, healthcare communication, burnout mitigation, and LGBTQ cultural competence for audiences ranging from medical providers to frontline staff.
Coaching and its values of presence, collaboration, respect, and empowerment, form the thread that connects my various roles as a personal development coach and training facilitator. The belief that the client or workshop participant has the solution and it’s the coach’s role to help illuminate the path, infuses both my teaching and private practice. I draw on 30+ years of combined experience in adult and higher education, health care organizations, and the arts, to facilitate virtual and in-person trainings for medical providers, coaches, educators, and organizational and team leaders from a wide variety of setting, in topics topics that include:
• Motivational Interviewing • Burnout Coaching • Improving LGBTQ Patient Experience • Communication Strategies • Mental Health First Aid® • Coaching Techniques for Supervisors • Care Coordination • Conflict Resolution • De-escalation Techniques • Job Search Skills
I served as a career coach at New York University's School of Professional Studies, where I partnered with mid-career professionals pursuing industry-specific graduate degrees and adult undergraduate navigating career changes and upgrades. I have also collaborated with clients from all walks of life in pursuing lifestyle and behavior changes to lead healthier and more fulfilling lives.
As a trainer for coaches and other human service professionals, I’m passionate about bringing diverse groups of people together to help them explore ways to interact more effectively with their patients and clients. Since vocal communication plays a significant role in those relationships, I draw on an extensive background as a vocalist and vocal coach to help learners become more aware of how their voice dynamics can influence a conversation. It's a privilege to help those who help others make meaningful changes in their lives.
