About Headwaters Coaching

At some point almost all of us forget who we are and lose the way forward. This is particularly true in the many transitions of rapid change. I have forty plus years experience of helping professionals through human and corporate transitions as they remember who they are, reclaim their aptitudes, talents, and gifts, while stepping into the future with greater purpose, passion, and performance.

Along the way I've gathered and mastered a number of tools for this work, including certificates in Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Time Line Therapy©, Hypnotherapy, International Coaching Federation trainee, Positive Psychology, Polarity Management, Conflict Management, and more. The most important tools I bring to the journey together are the ability and empathy to listen to your life at a level many others just can't reach while helping you hear and reclaim your own voice.

There are two sides to this work. One side is individual, one-on-one coaching. The other is individual and corporate training in how to say what you mean through the science of NLP, TimeLine Therapy, and Hypnotherapy. Many believe the communications process starts with talking. However, the most effective communicators begin with listening. What will happen to your effectiveness as a communicator when you truly hear others and then respond to what they're saying?

If you're seeking deeper meaning, greater empathy, renewed vision, or even simple instruction in how to be a better speaker, let's talk. You talk, I'll listen.

She really wants to do a great job, but hasn’t had  much time or opportunity to develop her leadership skills. Somewhere along the way she heard the phrase, “Manage THINGS, LEAD people!” Somehow she knew there was more to leading than simply getting everything aligned and in order. But, what did it mean to LEAD? She turned to an Executive Coach who started out by offering her a definition. “Executive Coaches focus on the...

Fear to Freedom March 3rd  9:00a to 4:00p LaMunyon Lodge, 21221 NE 13th Court, Sammamish 98074  There are so many things we would like to do in life, but somewhere along the way we’ve decided we either can’t, or shouldn’t.  It might be seeking a higher paying job, working toward more fulfilling relationships, becoming a better communicator, or other dream which always seems out of reach.  What if you could move beyond the decision you made to a new decision, a new, more powerful you?  What if you could say goodbye to your fears, self-limiting decisions, and all the rest,...

Just how big is your dream? What are you willing to leave behind to make it happen? What will you keep? What new resources, attitudes, aptitudes, friendships and…will you need to make it all happen? Seems like lots of folks are wrestling with big dreams these days.  Dreaming is easy and free.  But, moving to action can be costly.  The very skills and attitudes which get you to a certain place in life, perhaps where you’re at now, don’t always work in the next phase.  Consider the picture.  These pioneers set out on the trail with a perfect picture of...
