Research shows that college seniors are especially prone to the stressors of making the transition from education to employment to adulthood. My own research has found that students are also concerned about balancing time and staying motivated after college.

In conferences and workshops, my coaching approach focuses on helping students see their own reality from different vantage points by providing thoughtful, purposeful questions so they can trust their own internal voices.

I help students to imagine and visualize their current situations and the create space for them to verbalize personal decisions and commitments rather than telling them what to do.
