are you ready for personal and professional higher?

High Places Coaching and Consulting started from my own desire for a personal and professional HIGHER. I love supporting individuals, teams, leaders and organizations towards their own new heights via fresh insight and my unique Deeper to Higher© approach.

Sometimes our new heights come from challenge or crisis. Sometimes they come from others holding up the mirror. And sometimes we don’t know why but we are ready for a new trail, new boots, and a fresh set of eyes on the map and compass (that’s me!)

I facilitate clarity of vision, increased awareness, and transformation – big ideas that translate to big return on investment. As coach, consultant and trainer, I’m the trek guide—resourcing, equipping, and encouraging deeper understanding of motivations, agility, and aptitude for self and others.

The result?

Satisfaction, effectiveness and engagement that come from living and leading authentically. Let me know how I can support you, your team, and your organization on your trek to personal and professional NEW HEIGHTS!

What Clients Say

I have helped many people in many places on many paths towards their personalized deeper and higher best… in their work, relationships, personal growth, leadership, effectiveness and performance. I coach with genuine, focused commitment to your vision resulting in clarity of direction, self confidence, enhanced sense of personal meaning and purpose.

For many, this is akin to offloading unnecessary items in your pack -items that could be useful to someone, may have been useful to you on a particular trail section but are no longer helpful or needed for this stage of your climb!
