I am the daughter of immigrants, growing up with a huge imagination and a dream to match. I always wanted to help others, and as I grew, I learned that my insight into people’s motivations was uncanny. My ability to speak, connect, and tap into the heart of people has led to life-changing break-throughs for my clients.
As Founder of Betterment Life Coaching modality, I have developed workshops and programs that have transformed people’s lives, opened doors of compassion and courage in the face of fear, empowered Better corporate social justice conversations, and altered the course of personal development and Better business practices in arenas of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Medieval and Renaissance History – Gender, Power, and Religion, hold multiple certifications and awards in life coaching, neurolinguistic programming, cognitive behavioral therapy coaching, communication coaching, group facilitation, and public speaking.
Everyone in the world is either partnered or pre-partnered. Want to know the secret? We're all partnered on some level! We partner with parents, siblings, coworkers, peers, friends, and more. We even partner with the person at the checkout counter. Most importantly, we are our own best partners, our first and last. It is critical for us to master partnership skills and communication.
Language is the best tool to enhance partnerships. Our word choice, tone of voice, inflection, eye contact, posture, hand gesture, body language, and other non-verbal cues are all parts of how we communicate with each other. Changing just one word, one phrase, one inflection or facial expression can change the whole interaction. My coaching helps you master these skills to grow and uplift your partnership.
When you work with me, we discuss how and why we respond to interactions the way we do. We rehearse what to say, how to say it, and what outcomes we seek to create. We practice, laugh, and repeat until confidence is reached, where you know more about yourself, thus improving your partnership interactions.
I love to talk. I love to share my ideas. Most importantly, I know that learning Better Communication Techniques involves listening to someone's voice, their inflection, tone, pitch, cadence, word selection, pacing, and more. Hearing me teach you how to speak to yourself and your partner can help you grow. My podcast is full of stories, tips, tricks, and techniques to master yourself and grow your partntership.
The H.O.P.E. workshop consists of small groups of people coming together in a private setting, playing card games, joking, and getting to know each other. We then shift to the workshop experience CRP - Conversation Role Play. We practice having a conversation in a controlled environment, hearing it rehearsed in a variety of ways, noticing body language, tone, pace, language, word choice, and more. We then reflect back and give feedback, noticing how the exchange looked and felt to us, what we observed, what we missed, and how we might use the tools (or avoid certain behaviors) in our own personal conversations.
It is power. It is authentic. It is intimate. It works. Sign up today!
