Steps to working together for success
The first step is to discuss your situation and understand your goals, clear or ambiguous as they may be. It is important to identify your objectives and the obstacles to achieving satisfaction and success. We will establish a program or process to overcome the issues, which may be personal, relational or organizational. We will work together through coaching, counseling or a tailored combination to reach your goals and achieve a healthier and more balanced and fulfilling life.
Range of services
I offer a comprehensive array of coaching, consulting, and counseling services and work with clients who have concerns about themselves, their families, their relationships and their organizations. My clients and I meet locally in the Boston area and remotely (nationally and internationally).
Services that match your needs
Everyone is unique. I work with clients to develop tailored solutions for individuals and organizations. I bring a practical understanding of real-life work and family situations, and a psychological perspective on individuals and groups. Individual, couples, and family therapy as well as coaching and organizational development have been part of my training and experience.  This versatility provides a foundation for recommending either performance coaching, therapeutic counseling or a customized combination.
Results that matter to you
I believe that my clients are the best judges of success, because they set the goals that matter the most. With over 30 years’ experience in coaching, counseling, and consulting, I have helped hundreds of clients achieve their goals and live happier, more productive, and satisfying lives. As a result, my clients express a high rate of satisfaction. Please contact me to discuss how I can help you in your situation.
How does the process work?
Every client has unique challenges and needs a tailored approach. Generally, we use variations of a four step process. These are: Assessment: We will identify the issues you are facing and the goals you want to achieve. This may involve personal, career, or leadership questionnaires. Creating a plan: Based on our assessment, we will establish specific goals, guidelines, or strategies; putting together a plan that is right for your situation and needs. Coaching, Consulting or Counseling: We work together to accomplish your objectives. This may involve achieving short or long term goals, or working through deeper emotional issues. Evaluation and Monitoring: We establish a system of check-ins to monitor and ensure that you have met your objectives or set new goals for moving forward.
