In order to get the most benefit out of your coaching experience, it’s important to ensure your coach is qualified. I have decades of training and experience all designed to help you get your needs met:

  • PhD from Yale University in Anthropology, with research on gender, language, and sexual identity. I studied sociocultural linguistics and power dynamics in communication. As a social scientist, I bring a unique perspective to understanding and resolving communications challenges in personal and professional relationships.
  • Certified Professional Coach, having completed over 300 hours of coach-specific training at iPEC, the premier certification program approved by the International Coach Federation.
  • Presented at conferences in multiple disciplines across the country, including anthropology, gender studies, gay/lesbian studies, linguistics, popular culture, and consent. I have experience in research, writing, editing, and teaching at the college level.
  • Over a decade of experience working with individuals and couples as a communications consultant, helping people explore their desires and resolve internal and interpersonal conflicts.
