“Life isn’t about finding yourself.
 Life is about creating yourself.” 


Who Do You Choose to Be?

Being accepted for who we truly are. Isn't that what we all want? Sometimes, though, there's a gap between who we know we are inside and how we appear to others. Perhaps it feels too risky to show up as our authentic selves. To appear different from the crowd. Maybe something just doesn't feel right about our current situation or choices. How do we find the courage to be ourselves when the voices around us (and the ones in our heads) seem disapproving and making mistakes seems so costly? 

Life coaching for young adults is an evidence-based approach that employs deep listening, targeted, powerful questioning, goal-setting, and action steps. The process supports clients' self-discovery: developing the skills and wisdom to move toward independence on a path they choose rather than being swept along with the current. As they challenge themselves and accrue successes, they develop better discernment, more clarity and confidence, and greater self-trust.


  • Stuck in confusion or indecision?

  • Having drama with friends?

  • Struggling with anxiety? 

  • Feeling undermined by self-doubt or low self-esteem?

  • Acting in ways you think are wrong?

  • Withdrawing from life?

  • Yearning for more independence but fearful of adulting?


Coaching can help young adults with these issues and others.


As a life coach for young adults, I seek to make a genuine, heartfelt connection with my clients in which they feel seen and supported to achieve their goals. Clients are guided to explore in a way that allows space for new insights, understanding, and acceptance.
