One-Line Bio

I am a consulting psychologist and executive/career coach.


Professional Biography

  • Are you "flipping a coin" for hiring and retaining fully engaged people who fit your workplace culture and losing the "War for Talent".

  • Do your hiring managers need help selecting, assessing, and keeping high performing people who are a great fit with your company culture?

  • Do you or your company's best and brightest need leadership coaching from an International Coach Federation certified coach focused on results?

  • Are valued leaders lacking requisite emotional intelligence competencies?

We consult and coach with organizational leaders. We can help you develop strategic talent management programs including succession management, selection and assessment, leadership development, executive/career coaching, and corporate retreats helping organizations fill their leadership pipeline with emotionally intelligent leaders and "Win the War for Talent". We specialize in working with professional service firms including attorneys and law firms. We facilitate leadership retreats nationally and in Costa Rica.

The CEO and founder of a major Bay Area Company contacted me about his retiring in a few years and the search for a successor. In collaboration with the Board of Directors and Senior Leadership Team, we created a competency model for the CEO position. I provided executive/leadership coaching for two of the company VP's who were selected as CEO candidates. As a result of the executive /leadership coaching, the BOD and CEO selected one of the VP's, who most clearly demonstrated the requisite CEO competencies to lead the company into the future.
