What is the Enneagram?
The Enneagram (pronounced "ANY-uh-gram") is a model for identifying nine distinct personality types. More than identifying only strengths or surface-level behaviors, it gives incredibly accurate and useful insights into the stories we're telling ourselves, the root motives behind behaviors, and charts a specific path for each type for growth and performance improvement.
Whether you're wanting a guide for your own self-awareness journey or a tangible tool to better understand the people around you, you'll find what you need inside the Enneagram.

"You have spent years studying other people - presidents, authors, athletes, artists. It's time to start studying yourself."
My Approach to the Enneagram
We take the work seriously, but not ourselves.
Taking an honest look at yourself can be uncomfortable and at times, cringy. What you go through to see and accept all parts of you and your impact on others, is hard work. That's why it's important to me that what you take away from this deep work is useful, actionable, with some fun along the way.
The Enneagram can be a complex model, but when you work with me as your guide, expect to learn it in an unprestigious way with fun examples from JLO and the Avengers, humor, and relevant analogies. What we do together will never be to shame you, attempt to fix you, or make you wrong (or anyone else), but to see all of you and understand how to use your strategies to support you vs. thwart you in your success at work and at home.
