According to the International Coaching Federation (ICF):
“ICF defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. The process of coaching often unlocks previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity and leadership.
“We all have goals we want to reach, challenges we’re striving to overcome and times when we feel stuck. Partnering with a coach can change your life, setting you on a path to greater personal and professional fulfillment.”
We see coaching as an equal partnership in which we work with you to explore, gain clarity, and create sustainable results that align with your unique values and aspirations.
To achieve this, we start by co-creating a coaching arrangement together that will best serve you, and adjust it if needed as we learn more about what works for you. As we work toward your aspirations together over the course of the program, you’ll build a repertoire of lifelong skills, tools, and frameworks for your career and personal development.
Typical programs include:
Energy Leadership Index assessment
Weekly or bi-weekly 1:1 coaching sessions
Between-session support via email, text, or Voxer

In mentorship, the mentor is usually regarded as the expert – someone who has been there and done that. The focus is typically on the mentee getting advice and learning from the mentor’s past experiences.
As coaches, we fully believe in you and know that you already have all the answers you need within you (even though it might not feel that way to you right now!). Our job is to help you create awareness and clear the noise that’s getting in the way of you identifying those answers.
Of course, we do have plenty of interesting and valuable experiences of our own, and if they’ll be beneficial to you, we’re happy to share! Just know that you always get to choose what you want to do with any information you get – we won’t lead or push you, because you know best what’s right for you.
A therapist is a licensed medical professional who is qualified to diagnose and treat mental disorders. The focus in therapy is typically on healing the past or prescribing and monitoring treatments.
While coaches do explore feelings, release internal blocks, and dig into the past to understand how it affects you in the present, we are not qualified to diagnose or treat mental disorders. Our focus in coaching is to empower you to create the future you want from where you are today.
Many people find synergy in working with a therapist and a coach simultaneously – you don’t have to choose just one or the other!
The Energy Leadership Index (ELI) assessment is a proprietary, research-backed assessment tool created by iPEC that allows you to understand your own mindset and attitude through concrete metrics that you can track over time as you progress in your career and personal development journey.
When you gain access to your assessment, you’ll take a brief online survey from which we’ll create a detailed report of your unique Energy Profile.
During your 90-minute assessment debrief with your coach, you’ll learn all about the Energy Leadership model, and we’ll look closely at where (and how) you’re investing your energy. By gaining awareness of the mindset you’re currently bringing to situations across your life, you’ll be able to define how you want use your energy to best support your work and life goals. We’ve seen clients use this framework to make dramatic transformations in their relationships, confidence level, and leadership skills!
