Barbara has a deeply held passion for working with women in midlife and has built a decades long career as an elite leadership, career and life strategies coach and advisor to senior executive women. She is a recognized expert on the psychology of women, the stages of adult development and how these stages impact career development and leadership in women. As a result, Barbara is a sought-after coach by women who are looking to make appropriate and actionable personal and professional decisions at critical stages of their lives and careers. Helping her clients find clarity around everything from how to deal with career and life challenges to avoiding hot flashes in the boardroom makes her an invaluable asset to every woman in business. “I have been with very senior women leaders in every professional and personal situation along the continuum from their most broken, disappointed and confused to their most confident, successful, proud and empowered. I appreciate their confidence and trust."
Determined to see more women at leadership tables, Barbara chose to use her clinical psychology training to support the continuing development of leadership skills and resilience in executive women. She uses her insights into human thought and behavior along with her decades of working with women in corporate settings across industries to listen, guide, support and cajole them to clarity and decisive action as well as fulfillment and deep satisfaction. "Today's environment requires that we work together for the betterment of all. Women naturally bring skills to the table that are invaluable on the current global playing field. Life serves up many changes, opportunities, and challenges; my goal is to help and inspire women to face them with courage, passion, grit, wisdom, and grace."
"On a personal note: My work, my education, and my personal experiences that have brought me to this point in my life and career are deeply rooted in mindfulness, positive psychology and neuroscience as well as solid business/leadership frameworks. I work from a foundation of love and a respect for who you are and how you want to express yourself in the world as a mature and wise woman. To work with me is to take a deep dive into your experience and rise to the surface with clarity and appreciation for all that you are and all that you bring to the world. I want you to surprise yourself with what you can accomplish.”
