About Liz

Having worked with therapists and coaches during my own life challenges of divorce, career transitions, and most difficult, the loss of my youngest son — I have experienced love, pain, hope, life, death and personal transformation. As a survivor of many of life's challenges, I help people get through creative blocks or work through other areas they may feel stuck.

As a Certified Professional Coach, I support positive change and growth for people who have had their own struggles with life changing events such as career transitions, relationship issues, divorce, or the death of a loved one. Coaching surfaced in my life many years ago, and I have experienced the positive effects of working with great coaches, so delving into it was an easy choice. 

My career has had a creative and technical focus, yet the most rewarding aspect is supporting, motivating and inspiring others to find their zone in the pursuit of their dreams. I strongly believe that strategy is nothing without execution, and the same principles are applied to my coaching philosophy, because taking action is the only way to achieve your goals.

I work with clients to create positive changes by breaking down their goals into small attainable steps, overcome barriers and create a plan for successful outcomes for individuals or in the workplace. I have respect for all people seeking guidance, so honesty is of the utmost importance, as is a clear understanding of the difference between coaching and therapy.* We can discuss this and any other questions you have in our first discovery call.

​*While life coaches and therapists sometimes work with similar issues, the work is not the same. Therapists explore mental health and emotional well-being, by focusing on past traumas or other issues that require their guidance. Life coaches focus on an individual's actions and results to achieve personal and professional goals.

This is very helpful for someone like me, who tends to be more of a "big picture" thinker. After identifying actions I need to take, I can count on Liz to hold me accountable, check in and track my progress.
