Creating the space for connection and growth

I am a leadership and executive coach with the primary focus of empowering leaders on how to incorporate the coach approach into their leadership style. The coaching mindset can be transformative to teams, organizations, and communities at large. It is by listening, asking questions, and truly honoring each individual that we are able to optimize engagement, purpose, innovation, and ultimately productivity and growth.

To support this process, I have invested in my own personal and professional development, becoming now a Master Certified Coach (MCC) by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and a faculty member at Coach U and Coaching Out of the Box. I am also an official certification assessor for the ICF and a registered mentor coach, supporting coaches to further polish their coaching skills, to successfully build and maintain their coaching practices and to prepare for their certification with the ICF.

Some preferred tools I am licensed to use as part of my practice are the Coaching Clinic®, the Personal Communication Style Inventory (PCSI)® as well as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)®.

A strong focus of my work is on identifying, developing and celebrating the potential and resourcefulness of each person embracing their ethnicity, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability, marital status, personality type and/or professional standing. I am particularly mindful of giving my clients the space and the structure that enables them to refine their voice and to establish a solid place at the table.

Outside of my coaching practice, I am a musician with a master’s degree in Music from the Westminster Choir College in Princeton, NJ. I am also a photographer, a meditator in the Vipassana tradition, and an opera lover. I am passionate about traveling, ethnic food, and everything diversity. I am originally from Brazil and living in the USA since 1992. My home now is in sunny St. Petersburg, FL.
