Alissa’s Approach

Alissa has coached and consulted with 1,100+ clients – individually and in groups – from the private, non-profit, and federal sectors, giving her a unique understanding of different industries and organizational structures. She partners with emerging and existing leaders to help them confirm and meet their professional goals. Alissa’s process and encouraging approach meets clients’ needs and builds their confidence.

Attentive, active listening allows Alissa to notice obvious – and not-so-obvious – cues. This helps a client recognize more about themselves and what is being communicated.


Thoughtful, curious questions move a client’s learning along, encourage awareness, and assist with self-reflection. Probing, powerful questions allow for growth.

Strong communication skills give Alissa the opportunity to work well with clients. She clarifies and understands their needs to help them achieve their goals.

Honesty and directness combined with encouragement is an approach Alissa values and demonstrates consistently in her coaching, as she shares insights and perspectives.

How Alissa’s clients describe her:


"An out-of-the-box thinker"
