Progress does not have to be perfect...

Life ebbs and flows, it's true!  But sometimes we can get stuck feeling low, out of touch, and unable to find the gaps that might need attention.  Working with a coach can help define the life you want to live and develop a plan to making it happen.

Progress does not have to be perfect, it is only the beginning.

PIVOT is wellness and life coaching that combines modalities from health, wellness, self-development and full-value living.  It is built upon tools, techniques and resources developed by experts in the field and offered as stepping stones in your personal development.  The most important element of your PIVOT is you.  You are the power behind the process- as a team, I can present options, and you must decide what fits.  We will work together to integrate these choices into the direction you want to take your life.

PIVOT is a do-with process.  

Though the tools, resources and techniques I utilize with clients are many and depend heavily on the individual, some of the areas in which I focus are habits and patterns, overall lifestyle, value-based goal setting, and views of self/others/world.  PIVOT is an integrative and holistic approach, addressing and supporting all four of your body systems (mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual).  Many people come to coaching under the stress of one big Issue they perceive in their lives.  Starting your PIVOT means looking at the roots of this throughout your life as a whole. 

Then, the magic happens: ACTION.

Actionability is what separates integrative wellness and life coaching from more common modalities that may only address one aspect (physical or mental, for example).  Every action speaks a need and every need is best met when understood and valued.  Working together to understand your needs and try-on-for-size new and more balanced ways of meeting them is the magic of coaching.

PIVOT Wellness is the culmination of years of traveling the world, working in health and wellness, challenge-seeking, passion-finding and personally-developing.  If anything has been learned from that journey, it is that the road is never simple, straight, or as expected.  It is in this light that I approach integrative life coaching- let's not kid ourselves about its ease and instead, look for ways and means to keep moving toward what you want.

As owner and Life-Balance curator, PIVOT has a deep personal connection for me.  Over the last 10+ years, I have worked with clients in the mental/behavioral health paradigm, as a mental health case manager, sexual health educator, diabetes prevention lifestyle coach, at-risk youth life coach, yoga and meditation instructor, and college professor to name a few.  In all of these professional roles, my reasons for being there were always supporting the growth of others and, equally, self-development.  And, indeed, this intention was always accomplished in spades: humans are incredible and insightful if we only stop and listen.

And from those experiences, I coach.  You have all of the wisdom and insight within you already, you amazing human, you.  My skill is not in fixing your life, but with sitting with you and asking the right questions that encourage you to reflect upon what isn't working and what may be the ticket to the right direction.  My job as coach is to support you unpacking things that may be getting in the way.  More importantly, to tap into your strengths to carry you towards your goals in any area of life: career, health, relationships, finances, spirituality, or self-development.
