My name is Joan Wise. I currently live in Costa Mesa, CA. This is in Orange County Southern California about midway between San Diego and San Francisco. I coach people to strengthen and enhance the harmony and respect in their relationships. In addition, I work in a Domestic violence preventon program facilitating Batterer's intervention, Child Abuse Treatment, and Parenting Groups. Improving co-parenting skills is an important part of my work as the children are so often the collateral damage in separation and divorce cases and we can prevent this.

I also enjoy training and mentoring new coaches. From 2011 to 2017 I facilitated training in an ICF approved coach certification program. In 2017 I left and along with my partner Luke Benoit devloped our own curriculum and mentoring program, Benoit-Wise Coaching.

Recently I joined a nonprofit organization Executive Coaches of Orange County. We do pro bono coaching for leaders in the nonprofit sector. This is something that was out of my comfort zone but I thought it would be an oportunity for me to grow. I definitely am learning and sharpening my skills.
