Look for her TEDx talk, “What I Learned from Being a Girl Scout.”
“After working in mental health for nearly 20 years, I was introduced to the field of coaching, including positive psychology and strengths-based approaches to change. These new perspectives completely changed my approach to helping others. As a clinical psychologist, I was trained to focus on symptoms, pathology and disabilities – more on what was wrong with a person instead of what was going well. As an executive coach, I help my clients focus on what energizes, engages and inspires them, helping them work in that sweet spot of their strengths, talents and passions. I love seeing the shift and growth people experience when they start paying closer attention to what they do best and love to do most.”
