I got into this work for
a few reasons...
To help big-hearted, go-getters like you overcome performance anxiety and engage others with more confidence and ease.
To figure out (for myself and others!) a more authentic approach to carrying yourself like a pro than “fake it ‘til you make it.”
To show people how to get their own minds and bodies to cooperate with them (instead of ganging up on them!) when the pressure’s on.
To start a global conversation about how to use who you truly are on the inside to communicate more powerfully and effectively on the outside.
"Presence is the essence of being present and your willingness to present your essence."
My approach to coaching is simple. It boils down to four essentials:
I’m not interested in helping you pretend to be self-assured, I’m committed to making sure you are self-assured. So that no matter what life throws at you, you know how to kick your second-guessing to the curb and let your brightest, boldest Self do the talking (and the listening!).
Why am I so passionate about this approach?
Because I’ve been there. From competing in audition rooms and performing on national stages to coaching executives in c-suites and speaking at major conferences, I’ve experienced the anxiety that comes with putting yourself out there and the intense fear of not knowing how it’ll go.
I use SelfSpoken techniques to turn my own panic into power and every day pressures into presence. Like all of us, I’m a work in progress. But when the waves of adrenaline or the whispers of self-doubt inevitably flood my system, I know what I need to do in order to find my own communication sweet spot:
That empowering and fulfilling experience of coming across like a pro while staying true to the real, passionate, imperfect human being I know I am.
I'm here to serve.
From authors to engineers, doctors to CEOS, educators to sales reps and every type of creative professional in between--the one thing all SelfSpoken clients have in common is that as they’re thrust into more “make it or break it” situations, my ever-expanding toolkit provides them with the practical skills they need to manage performance anxiety, dial down second-guessing, and communicate at their best by staying true to who they are.
So, whatever it is that you do, no matter what your dreams are, it’d be my honor to help you reach that sweet spot between being a more polished communicator and leading with your authentic, one-of-a-kind self.
