“Growth is the great separator between those who succeed and those who do not. When I see a person beginning to separate themselves from the pack, it’s almost always due to personal growth.”

Development Coaching and Life Strategy 





Just think of me as your life strategist. You have goals and dreams but something is slowing you down. I'm here to help you uncover your blocks, clarify your vision and assist you in creating a strategy that will illuminate your path to success. Although I adapt my coaching to fit each person's individual needs, the core elements are self-discovery and empowerment as these create a strong foundation for personal clarity and inner strength. When an individual is well grounded in these attributes, success in any area of life can be achieved.


​It’s all about Empowering YOU! My goal is to help you create a solid base that will support self-efficacy in the future. Finding support from others can be great for achieving short-term goals but cultivating personal skills that build inner strength is key to creating a new personal system that will lead to future success. I’ll be sharing important tools and techniques that are needed to persevere through the challenges that may arise on your personal journey.


My coaching methods are based on my training in Intentional Change Theory, NLP.  and somatic awareness along with my extensive research and personal experience in psychophysiology (the brain-body connection), self-awareness, identifying subconscious patterns, developing/ changing habits & beliefs, and the human energy field. I also engage my natural intuitive ability to assist each client.



  • Intentional Change Theory

  • NLP- Neuro Linguistic Programming

  • Somatic Awareness

  • Specialization in Leadership from Northwestern University.


I have been on a personal development path for two decades and utilize the practices of many teachers. I've attended classes, seminars, live online training and retreats – including a 10-day Vipassana silent meditation retreat in Belgium. 


Research shows that personal development is essential for being successful in your career, in relationships, and life in general. I'm excited to use my knowledge, insight and intuition to support you on your path to reach your goals and dreams.


Design Your Personal Vision: A Personal Vision is important in order to establish clarity on where you’d like to be in 1, 3, or 5 years in your career and in your personal life.. With this comes an internal fire of motivation, hopefulness and excitement. I'll assist you in designing your path to success and implementing your action plan. The challenge to achieve future goals brings a slew of mental and physical benefits not to mention the joy of accomplishment as you reach milestones along the journey to your goals and dreams. Don’t spend one more day lacking direction and focus just to end up in the same boring destination as everyone else. Take the bold step to design your Personal Vision now!

Foundation for Change and Transition: I am passionate about supporting others through life changes. Change is constant. Change is necessary. For some it can be very difficult but for those who know the techniques and tools that assist in the change process, it can be much easier and even exciting as you move forward ready to explore the new possibilities.

Kind Words from Clients

"Change is hard, awkward, scary, and inevitable.  When I was faced with big life changes and not knowing what to do next, Brenda helped me see my situation as an opportunity for growth, bringing me closer to the person I really am.  She has become a calming, affirming and encouraging voice that I look forward to hearing.  She is teaching me how to find peace in uncertainty and joy in the journey." - Mark Miller, Assoc. Executive Director

"I really appreciated her expertise along with her kind spirit and patience.........  The more I work with her, the more appreciative I am of her unique ability to clarify psychological obstacles as well as implement practical solutions needed to move forward.  Her approach is value based with a focus on re-framing erroneous beliefs.  She asks poignant questions, is genuinely encouraging and also has a wonderful sense of humor, which is always helpful when going through challenging transitions." --

Evonne Kane, Five Seasons Healthcare

 "I am mostly positive and upbeat in life but even I have moments of insecurity or doubt. It is rare that I find someone who can shimmer light into these darker recesses like Brenda can. She has a vibrant, uplifting spirit that is radiant. She has the ability to see problems, situations, and life in a new angle, offering a significant new perspective. After every conversation with her, I feel motivated, uplifted, and energetic. She is a positive force in my life and I value her insight and inspiration". - Raj Nirmalakhandan, Writer and Director
