About Full Presence Coaching
In coaching, it is about you.
What matters to you in the years to come?
What are you focusing on right now?
Creating the Life You Want
Coaching will support you to open your life.
Fulfill your leadership potential at work and in the world.
Tune your life to your own purpose and values.
Broaden the perspectives you bring to the challenges of your life.
Come into the present moment with more aliveness.
Have greater awareness of your own thoughts and feelings.
Become a better leader, partner, team member, parent.
Respond creatively instead of reacting by habit.
Act powerfully to meet your goals.
Are you ready to show up? To be vulnerable? To make changes in your life?
As a coach, I won't give you answers or try to solve your problems.
As a mentor, I will make suggestions based on my experience.
I will help you reach your destination by meeting you where you are, listening intently, and asking powerful questions.
I will challenge and support you as you work to develop your own understanding, direction, action steps, and accountability to yourself.
You will be led by your own understanding as you grow.
The agenda and the responsibility for your choices are always yours.
I hold you as naturally creative, resourceful, and whole.
How it Works
Sessions are 50 minutes by phone or video. All conversations are, of course, held in confidence.
Homework between sessions provides a focus for your developmental work.
Coaching is most effective in an ongoing coaching relationship. I generally meet with my clients twice a month for at least 3-6 months.

“So much of our life takes place inside our heads, in memory, or imagination, or interpretation, or speculation, that if I really want to change my life, I might best begin
by changing my mind.”

I have lived my adult life at the meeting place of the world of organizations and the world of spirituality. Today I am a coach, consultant, teacher, musician, and poet, with a wonderful family of three daughters and five grandchildren.
I have a lifetime of practice in inner work and spiritual traditions including Subud, hatha yoga, bhakti yoga, meditation, psychotherapy, Authentic Movement, Sufism, the Dances of Universal Peace, and the Diamond Approach. I believe in the wisdom of the heart and of the body, and am dedicated to ongoing inquiry and discovery in my own life.
On the professional side, in late 2018 I stepped down from the role of Steward of the Agile Coaching Institute, which offers transformative education in professional coaching and facilitation for coaches and stakeholders of Agile teams. Working with both skills and mindsets, the Institute nurtures self-awareness in support of adult development. I served as a faculty member in the program and guided the business of the Institute. Today I maintain a practice as a founding partner in the consultancy Agile Panache.
I come to professional coaching and Agile mentoring with more than 40 years of experience in commercial software, consulting, corporate IT, education, and community organizations. I have started a small non-profit, co-founded a graduate school in Green Business, taught MBA students, and held a wide variety of leadership and technical positions in small organizations and large global corporations. Over the past decade+ at SolutionsIQ I focused as a coach and consultant in the world of Agile software development, shaping large Agile transformation and organizational change programs, training coaches, and coaching teams. For the last several years of my tenure I served on the SIQ leadership team.
I have been trained and certified as a Co-Active Coach (CPCC) by the Co-Active Training Institute, and hold an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) certification from the International Coach Federation. I have also studied Developmental Coaching with Coaches Rising and Ten Directions. I have a B.A. in Communications from Northwestern University and an M.A. in Organizational Systems from Saybrook University.
I love this work of Full Presence Coaching. It puts me in a position to serve people one-on-one as they build understanding, find purpose, and move into powerful, life-affirming action. I look forward to meeting you.
