Dr. Chris’ coaching services draw upon decades of experience working with corporate executives and entrepreneurs and provides executives and their teams with an authentic and valuable perspective as they navigate challenges. Acting as a trusted advisor, Dr. Chris is a sounding board, a guide, a new perspective, and an accountability partner for the executives with which she works. Her coaching philosophy is based on a foundation of trust with her clients and backed by a Ph.D. in organizational psychology, where she specialized in executive coaching strategies.

Each coaching client is unique. The approach each person needs to get the most out of a coaching relationship is unique. The coaching journey with Dr. Chris will start with a free 30-minute conversation to determine the specific coaching needs. Next, a customized assessment will be administered (see list of assessments here).

This assessment will also provide more information on the specific options available and the direction of the coaching journey. Once the assessment is debriefed, as a team with Dr. Chris, the best coaching strategy will be determined.

I met Chris in 2009 when she had a speaking engagement with the Women’s Leadership Forum at my workplace. I loved her from the start; she exudes tremendous energy and positivity that is infectious. As a speaker, Chris is engaging and easily holds your attention throughout her presentations. Soon after, I hired Chris to be my Coach. Chris is very personable, has tremendous experience and professionalism, held me accountable, listened to what I had to share, and offered terrific guidance! Chris was able to help me see where I needed to make improvements in my life/career to make a positive difference in my life.
