Inspiring Growth through Challenge and Change

Her ability to facilitate practical, sustainable impact for her clients stems from her philosophy that coaching is about change; and to change, people must be challenged.

In addition to her energetic and engaging style, Vivian is best known for her holistic approach to helping individuals gain self-awareness and achieve their personal goals, while ensuring accountability.

Vivian’s coaching approach is based on positive psychology – what is right about the individual. She uses carefully curated tools and techniques. Vivian often uses two, scientifically-grounded assessments that bring value to her clients – the Clifton StrengthsFinder and the Hogan Suite Assessments. Each client and each situation are different, and Vivian identifies how and when assessments can help clients achieve desired outcomes.
