My journey to coaching wasn’t linear, as is true for many worthwhile ventures. I certainly didn’t predict this career for myself while growing up, or even when I was in college. In fact, coaching wasn’t really a “thing” back then, outside of sports. But I can confirm, without hesitation, that this is what I am meant to be doing. Coaching allows me to share in other folks’ exhilarating moments of release from the confinement of expectation, and nothing beats that!
Hope & Wonder
Through a fun, affordable, and accessible coaching process, I help clients clarify their work objectives, help clear out whatever has been blocking the way forward, and then support clients to enact plans to achieve their goals.
Disability & Vocational Rehabilitation Management
I support employees to recover from illness or injury, and then return successfully to work at their pre-disability job, or if that isn’t possible, a new position elsewhere. Successful returns to work are critical for employee health, but also the health of the organizations in which they work.

I am fortunate to live, learn, work and play on the traditional unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically those of the Squamish Nation (Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw) in beautiful British Columbia.
I cherish the opportunity to move wonderful new people to this special place we share together.
I initially came to coaching rather hesitantly as I was unsure whether or not it could help me. Before beginning this coaching experience, I was full of self-doubt, anxiety, and overwhelmed with the prospect of beginning a new chapter in my life. Within the first 2 sessions with Claire, I could feel excitement and confidence for the first time in years. The tools that I have gained through working with Claire are invaluable and I will use them for the rest of my life.
This has truly been a life-changing experience.
We cannot say enough wonderful things about working with Claire! We were completely overwhelmed by the prospect of finding a rental property in Vancouver, especially because we wanted to secure a place before arriving... and then along came Claire!! Within three days we had signed a lease on a perfect rental in a dream location that checked off our entire wishlist.
We truly could not have done it without her.
