Amy’s goal is to help clients identify and overcome obstacles that are preventing them from being the best version of themselves- whatever that means for them. Whether they’re looking for solutions to specific personal or professional challenges they are facing or if feeling stuck.
One of Amy’s coaching strengths is to visualize the overall picture of complex problems, and then strategically deconstruct them to identify solutions with her clients. Every client is unique. Their goals, obstacles, passions; they’re all personal and highly individual.
Amy’s coaching philosophy evolves and grows with each client. Her coaching style is creative, thought-provoking, and collaborative. She works with her clients as a collaboration, and she creates a safe, trusting, comfortable environment in which she and her clients can learn and grow. The ultimate goal with her coaching is to help her clients discover how to figure things out for themselves, solve problems independently, find their way, and let them discover the solution that already exists within.
For Amy, shifting into coaching was a natural transition given her first career working in the non-profit sector in the substance abuse field. Her breadth and depth of knowledge and experience working with individuals, families, and communities, has given her the unique ability to connect with people and transform their lives and careers. She has over 20 years of non-profit and entrepreneurship experience. She’s created a non-profit organization, worked with the DEA Educational Foundation, and a national non-profit organization working to reduce teen substance abuse and support families impacted by addiction.
Amy holds a B.A. in Psychology and a minor in Business from Westminster College and has a Masters in Educational Psychology from Texas A&M University. She is an NYU Certified Life Coach, a Certified Master Career Coach with GetFive, Time Management Coach, and a trained Recovery Coach through CCAR. She is currently serving as the President of the Board of Directors for the New York City International Coach Federation Chapter.
