Welcome to Engineer Your Life coaching!

I’m a life coach, but also a full-time working professional in the fields of IT and project management.  As an engineer I love the challenge of solving a problem, I  love my job, and I love working with teams.  But, I’ve gone down the road where I took too much on — too many hours at work (many 16+hour days), worrying about how stress at work affected my health and impacted relationships with loved ones, and feeling like I was making a mistake by postponing what really mattered.   Breaking out of this cycle seemed impossible, but then it happened. I’m certain this is because I slowed down enough to ask questions and be open to the answers.

My coaching services can help you untangle cause from effect in your situation, and give you the tools to change, so that you just don’t work hard — you enjoy life as much as possible.

Dissatisfaction can come in so many ways.

As a working professional, you can go through a phase where life or work feels disconnected. Burnout. Overwhelm. Boredom.  Leadership fatigue.

It’s like you want something different —  but don’t know where to start.

Turning inward is the fastest way to the success, the peace, the calm — whatever it is you seek.

The best place to start is with your current emotions, thoughts and perceptions of the situation.  Looking within can be uncertain, daunting and uncomfortable.  That’s why a series of coaching sessions – I often recommend 4 to 6  – will give enough time to explore what’s going on with underlying beliefs, and gives the opportunity to use mindfulness exercises to build awareness and calmness.

You may not know some of the big answers you’re seeking, but deciding to focus time on the questions you have can be amazing.

My clients say it’s easy to talk to me. They seek me out because, like them, I know first hand what it’s like to be working in technology, with the stress of doing more with less, and balancing work/life.  Many clients come to me to work out general feelings of dissatisfaction with the balance they have between work, family and self-care, navigating career decisions or post-career decisions, the frustration of not being able to do their best when hampered by people and process, being more effective in time management, or just wanting to find a way to be happier given their current circumstances.

How can I help?

I have a fresh perspective through life coaching skills, can show you positive ways to look at things, and help bring a sense of calm.  Through confidential coaching sessions you’ll shift your levels of self-awareness, empathy, intuition, mindfulness, emotional intelligence, and compassion.  If you have a part of you whispering for something more, you want to explore that, and can commit to taking action, then I’d love to hear from you.

Take action:

You can setup a trial session and see what answering questions like these might help you discover about the best self that is trying to emerge right now for you:

  • What do I want?
  • What is not working in my life right now? What forces of disruption am I facing? What am I disconnected from?
  • What is the work I’m here to do? What connection am I looking for?
  • What is it that I need to let go of? What needs to end?
  • What is it that I need to let come in? What needs to start?

Are you curious what might come up when you have someone who is truly caring and willing to listen be there just for you?
