  • I offer mixed level groups - for ACC, PCC or MCC credentials.  (ICF Rule: your mentor coach must be at the same or higher level credential as your application level - I hold an MCC.

I'll assist you in making sense of the requirements, translate the jargon and acronyms with you, and together we'll map your path from "I'm here"  to "I'm ready to submit".
