See your path clearly.
Do you have a clear vision of the life you'd love? If so, are you taking the steps to make it happen?
If not, coaching is designed to do just that — it puts your wisdom into action, so you can move past where you're currently stuck and spend your time and energy on what matters most.
There is no doubt you have the passion and motivation to do it. And, we know you want to look back on your life and be proud of what you've done (rather than just the busy-ness of it all). What if all that was missing were a few simple tools and support to get the momentum going?
Discover what holds meaning and purpose for you in your life and work.
Create goals that reflect what's most important to you.
Develop strategies to move through obstacles and take effective action.
Go beyond the worries, doubts or fears that may have stopped you in the past.
Achieve your created goals with clarity, focus, ease and grace.
Celebrate your accomplishments and success along the way.
You can bring a topic from any area of your life and work to our coaching sessions, including:
Stress, Self-Doubt, & Overwhelm: Tame your “inner-critic” and enjoy not freaking out so much.
Time Management & Productivity: Treat time as a friend to cherish, not something to conquer.
Career & Purpose: See where you really want to go next and how to get there.
Relationships: Enjoy a life built around those who matter most to you.
Financial Success: Use money to put your true values and intentions into action.
Health & Well Being: Learn to partner with your body as your lifelong companion.
Leadership & Teamwork: Hone your ability to empower others toward purposeful action.
My starting package is 6 months, two 50-minute sessions per month, including all of the text and email support in between sessions that you'd like. This time frame is long enough for meaningful results and short enough for a do-able commitment. You can always renew as we approach the end of 6 months.
I operate the way I’d want any coach to operate with me: Simple, easy, and straight-forward each step of the way.
We'll start by clarifying what you'd love to get out of working together as well as answering any questions.
If we see we're a fit, we'll review and sign a digital contract and start as soon as you'd like.
In our sessions, you'll move past challenges, set goals, make action plans & celebrate successes!
I stand for a world where everyone is supported 100% and no one is left out, and my pricing reflects that vision.
The fee for 2-sessions-per month (50 minutes per session) is based on serving a diversity of economic situations and gives more value than your money is worth. With that in mind, I ask that you select a tier that is an authentic stretch but not a hardship for you:
I also offer a scholarship rate on an individual basis.
As a coach I don’t give advice or tell you what to do, rather, coaching puts your own wisdom into action.
Some useful distinctions about what coaching is and is not:
Therapy is about healing and insight; coaching is about action.
Consulting prescribes expertise-based solutions; coaching emboldens you to act on your own wisdom.
Mentoring guides you based on a mentor’s wisdom; coaching guides you according to your own values and intentions.
Training follows a set curriculum toward set objectives; coaching reveals your own objectives and a path to fulfill them.
Coaching supports you to get clear on what is truly important to you and to move forward past where you are currently stuck.
"Chemistry" is important to consider when working with a coach. You'll see if we "click" during our discovery session. I'm also always happy to share referrals to other excellent coaches in my network if that would better serve you.
I've always loved supporting people. Before becoming a coach, I started my career at a grass roots organization providing leadership and life skills to youth in Chicago. I then spent nearly a decade at a research consulting organization, ultimately as a Deputy Director, focused on federal and state public health issues. After being at a fork in the road myself, I hired a coach to get clear on my next career move. I quickly saw that the common thread for me, was the enjoyment of being alongside someone (or a team) as they accomplished something they didn't think was possible.
I have a masters of public health from Johns Hopkins University and Professional Certified Coach (PCC) coaching credentials from the Academy for Coaching Excellence and the International Coach Federation. I'm currently a mentor coach at the Academy for Coaching Excellence and Lead Career Success Coach with SVAcademy. I've enjoyed collaborating with When To Jump San Francisco , NASDAQ Entrepreneurial Center and San Francisco Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA).
