Toronto Based Professional Coach
A Few Words About Nicki
My personal life informs my professional practice...
The Heart Of Coaching Is The Relationship.
“The coaching process was a dance of the minds! Nicki helped me unpack, examine, shift, resurface and repack ideas and perceptions of events, while developing practical strategies to move forward”.
- Sylvia Cerrado
Consider me your thinking partner.
With a counselling background, I can assist you to identify patterns that have led to your current life reality, and with a coach’s heart and mind, we will build the future you imagine, making ordinary days extraordinary.
A proud member of the 2SLGBTQ community, I understand the ways in which systemic oppression can create barriers, silence voices,
and deaden spirits. And I believe that personal transformation fuels social change. I work in cultural humility with members of BIPOC communities. I bring a twenty year meditation practice to my coaching vocation, and a light and playful spirit. Focus, determination, and hard work coexist in our sessions with laughter and ease of well being.
Get To Know Me
I bring passion, humour, and positive energy to everything I do, and my coaching partners tell me that’s infectious. As a 10-year-old, I wanted to be a professional tennis player, and while I didn’t make it to the big leagues, my competitive spirit is alive and well. Training to be a competitive athlete honed my capacity for high performance, and I set high expectations for myself and for others. I still play, and while I’m not as fast as I used to be, a tennis court still provides endless possibilities to see patterns, anticipate movement, and be creative. I bring these attitudes to my coaching practice
My path has included my share of obstacles and life altering events. Career change, cross country moves, heartbreak and divorce, a serious cycling accident and, five years later, brain surgery. Each life transition was an opportunity to rebuild and reset my compass. My road to recovery from brain surgery allowed me to reflect on life’s second chances, and grab hold of every precious minute of life.
In my spare time, I enjoy hiking in the woods or strolling the beach with my dog Morley.
