Develop Awareness. Make Honest Choices. Cultivate Change.

Life is always changing, and it isn’t always easy. We’re challenged daily by personal issues, parenting, stressful relationships and difficult work situations. Sometimes we feel lost or stuck, overwhelmed and undermined, tired and deflated. No matter the topic, the resolution process begins by turning our focus inward.

Professional coaching develops awareness – of self, of others, of the environment and of the world. With awareness comes greater clarity and the ability to make choices that transform your life. With mindful attention, you’ll learn to see things you couldn’t see before.  Embrace change, find purpose and invite genuine happiness into your life.

Patti Risch

As a Professional Certified Coach with the International Coach Federation, my passion for over 25 years has been helping people who are experiencing the challenges of life.

A true baby boomer in my heart and mind, I believe everyone has the ability to challenge the status quo and cultivate positive change. In 1996, I packed up three young children from our 20-acre Vermont homestead and embarked on what turned out to be a 21-year international adventure. We explored, we traveled, we embraced cultures from every corner of the globe. In addition to my private practice, I worked as a coach, teacher and counselor at international schools in Spain, Jordan, Pakistan and Switzerland. After 16 years living in Zürich, Switzerland, I landed in Denver, Colorado in 2017 and continue to offer private coaching.

I use a mindfulness-based, heart-centered approach in my coaching. This integrative and holistic model helps bring a sense of calm and peace to the present — allowing clients to build conscious awareness, navigate transitions with confidence and ultimately make choices that bring about sustainable change.

When I am not coaching, you’ll find me doing activities that bring me joy and nourish my soul — pilates, yoga, biking, walking and hiking (any mountain in the world will do!).
