Our focus is about moving you forward in a dynamic way to help you achieve a resonant, fulfilling life.

You will begin to see a difference right away! I invite you to call or email me to schedule your complimentary 30-minute introductory session to see if I am the right coach for you.

    I am a woman that had experienced molestation as a child, rape, domestic violence and drug addiction as an adult and experienced a lot of other great losses in my life. Yet I had dreams and visions and a desire to want to accomplish great things in my life one day, but I did not know how to get started. The issues that I mentioned kept me stuck! I did not know how to move forward on my own to live out my dreams. Then I realized one day that I needed a life coach to help me sort out some things in my life and help me figure out how to dump the garbage to reveal the goal nuggets. Ricci Victorio is helping me to do just that! I am now souring to heights that I did not realize were possible! Since my connection with her I have been able to set appropriate boundaries with my spouse. I have taken on so much courage to conquer some things that I use to be afraid of. With God's empowerment I have now completed all of my singles for my contemporary album that I have a long time desired to share with the world. I am a professional singer and also a playwright, who recently finished my script entitled: True Identity. I truly realize that my past negative experiences are not who I am- but were merely things that I experienced. I am learning how to take these experiences that I have overcame and offer hope to others who are yet caught in the traps to realize that they too can experience liberation with a helping hand. I praise God for giving me the blessing of knowing Ricci Victorio. I love working with this lady because she is truly a professional, she is compassionate, she is an awesome artist and has a very caring yet proactive life coach approach, with her use of technique that continually helps me figure out the things that don't make sense to me at first. Because of this I will make the last days of my life, the best days of my life and the life of others as well. Thanks Ricci

    Ricci has been a pivotal part of my transformation. She led me from a glimmer of “maybe I’ll become a coach” to full blown “I’m a certified coach, owning my own practice and traveling the nation doing workshops,” in less than a year. She made me accountable for my truth and allowed me to experiment and grow without judgment… always walking beside me. She was always able to move me forward in each session and held a safe space for exploration. I KNOW that I would not be where I am today without her!

    There have been a few times in my life when I realized that, in order to push through a barrier to reach the next level on my journey, I was going to need to bring in some assistance. Twice now, I have achieved the clarity, plan and motivation I needed by partnering with Ricci Victorio. The first time was many years ago when Ricci was facilitating Breakthrough Weekends. I was at a crossroads, I needed to make a big decision, by the end of that weekend, and that experience, led by Ricci, I was certain of my path forward and I executed it.
    Fast forward 15 years and Ricci is still helping people clarify their goals and break through barriers to achieve them. I reached out to her again. Through incredible professionalism, organization, wisdom and insight I am once again on a more certain path due to our work together.
    Thank you, Ricci for all you do!

    Ricci and I worked together in a professional coaching capacity for about 1 1/2 years. During that time period, we went over my ProScan, discussed what my 3-5 year professional goals were and identified what roadblocks might prevent me from achieving those goals. Then we developed strategies for dealing with those roadblocks including building on past successful tools as well as development of new tools that are actually "doable" given my life experience. The result is very satisfactory in that not only do I believe I have a plan as to how to achieve my goals but I also have a toolbox of strategies that I actually believe will work. The sense of confidence is there.

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. Helping untangle the knots that keep you from moving forward - whether you are a business owner facing the difficult decisions related to succession, an executive manager dealing with organizational change or an individual facing or desiring life changes that may seem overwhelming.

You can't separate business decisions from your personal life, just as you can't separate your personal self from your work self. If you find yourself feeling frustrated or unable to move yourself forward, the co-active approach will help you get to the core of what is holding you back from having the life that you desire.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. The Co-Active approach balances self-awareness, a keen agility with relationships, and courageous action to create an environment where individuals can be deeply fulfilled, connected to others and successful in what matters most.

The CO in Co-Active suggests relationship, connection, intimacy and collaboration. Thus, the coach is curious, listens deeply, hears nuance, holds space for others, intuits and nurtures.

The ACTIVE in Co-Active stands for power, direction, action and manifestation. So, the coach is courageous, has clarity and conviction, takes charge and achieves goals.

The transformation happens in the synergy between CO and ACTIVE action that arises from presence, deep relationship and context; Â…and presence that is channeled into dynamic action and contribution. Balancing and blending these energies allows us to move out of an either-or paradigm into a yes-and paradigm.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. I have a rare combination of experiences - coaching actors through improvisational training for 25 years; running my own business since I was 24; working in the business environment of succession planning with financial planners, attorneys, CPA, and other business transition professionals for 20 years; and then as a certified life coach and personalities styles trainer. This wide array of experiences allows me to move between the creative, analytic and strategic very easily. I have a niche expertise in working with professional advisors who are going through change within their practices.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. Participating in the process of discovery, helping my clients create the change in their lives that they dream of.

Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?

A. Mosaic FBC Coaching is an experience of personal and professional development unlike other kinds of coaching. Based on the Co-Active approach, it begins by holding the coachee as naturally creative, resourceful and whole, and completely capable of finding their own answers to whatever challenges they face. My job is to ask powerful questions, listen and empower to elicit the skills and creativity a client already possesses, rather than instruct or advise. I use use an array of proprietary tools that have been proven as the gold standard over the past 20 years of the coaching profession.

Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?

A. I think true coaches are born, not trained. It is a calling, not a vocation. Coaching is either intrinsically in your bones or it's not. It's who you are and what you do, whether you are being paid or not. It's just your way of being.

I have always been a coach - starting as an acting coach, a breakthrough coach, a succession coach and finally a life coach. I started out doing my graduate work in Directing/Acting, specializing in improvisational theatre. I have always been curious about finding ways of being with and living in change. Improv seemed like a great venue to experiment with change. I spent 25 years coaching actors, teaching them how to discover the creative flow within and with each other. This led to coaching breakthrough weekends with artists and then executives to identify where individuals get stuck, debunking disempowering beliefs and creating actionable steps for achieving their goals. It was a very powerful training process. I have leading this kind of work since 1978.

Q. Tell us about a recent job you did that you are particularly proud of.

A. Lately quite a few of my clients are working on changing jobs or careers. What is exciting is to see that ALL of them are achieving their goals - landing new jobs either in the same professional track, or on the one they always dreamed to be doing.

Q. Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?

A. Yes, absolutely. I continue to attend conferences, workshops and summits on leadership, coaching and earning CEU's through CTI & ICF to maintain my credential.

Q. Write your own question and answer it.

A. What is my perspective about how we experience life?

Just because you are surrounded by an ocean of disbelief does not mean you have to believe in the dreamworld of negativity, fear and loss. Open your true eyes and see the world as your heart knows it is: full of love, abundance, joy and laughter!
