Coaching is “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.” (International Coaching Federation)
You can count on me to be a fully committed partner in this creative process! Successful coaching relationships are built on confidentiality, collaboration, and trust. I’ll bring a healthy balance of encouragement and accountability to each session so you can safely explore the things you want to change and take action to achieve your goals.
My areas of coaching expertise for both individuals and groups include:
- values based leadership
- work-life balance
- self-confidence and self-compassion
- healthy transitions
In addition to thought-provoking questions and respectful observations, I work with tools like Emotional Freedom Technique (Tapping) and the Enneagram to support clients’ growth and awareness.
Coaching sessions take place by phone or video conference so the process is easily accessible from anywhere in the world.

Coaching with Lois helped me redefine my career focus. Her questions helped me see how the skills I was using in my previous position could translate to other types of work. She also helped me articulate what I really wanted to do. This is what ultimately landed me in a job I had not previously envisioned – my dream job!
Lois coached me on key issues of life balance and helped me move through a process of letting go of priorities that no longer served me. She introduced me to the practical tools I needed for physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being, and I have used those tools throughout the years. She is wise, warm and compassionate, and her sense of humor meant that I laughed more than once during every one of our meetings. Lois is more than just a coach for specific goals or problem-solving. She is a coach for how to live well.

When I was chair of the Stewardship Ministry at Forest Hill Church, Lois coached us through a process that resulted in a multiyear strategic plan. Through her guidance, the group felt at ease and each member felt valued. All participants were constructively engaged in creative thinking and practical problem solving. She helped us reach consensus on the changes we wanted to make. The final product was a viable, dynamic instrument that helped to focus our efforts, elevate our teamwork, and in the end produced record setting results.
