About Nona

I am a certified personal coach. I received my certification as a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) from The Coach Training Institute (CTI) and I am credentialed by the International Coach Federation as an Associate Certified Coach (ACC).  I am a member of ICF Global and ICF Philadelphia and currently serve as secretary of the board of Directors of ICF Philadelphia. I am also credentialed by JST Coaching and Training in the specialty area of coaching teens and college students with ADHD

I am also a registered nurse with a BSN from Temple University and I have worked in a variety of roles in Behavioral Health settings since the beginning of my nursing career.

I became a coach in 2004 while working as a clinical educator and staff development coordinator at a small private psychiatric hospital. I was doing client education, employee education and leadership training. I began to do coaching as a part of my work, and began my coach training shortly afterwards. I am dedicated to coaching as a profession with a clear body of knowledge and high ethical standards as set forth by ICF Global.

I enjoy working with people who “march to the beat of a different drum”.  I work with optimistic energetic creative people who are struggling to put their ideas into action. Some of my clients carry labels such as ADHD and Asperger’s syndrome. Some do not. All of them are ready to move forward.

My coaching style is accepting and compassionate. My clients, with or without labels, are NOT broken. They may have challenges or differences (or not) AND they have wonderful gifts that perhaps they have not been fully aware of. I meet my clients where they are at, help them figure out where they want to go and walk beside them on their way. I celebrate their individuality and uniqueness.
