my practice

I am a Martha Beck® Certified Coach; I consult on behalf of clients with an emphasis on career and/or personal growth acceleration.

My twitter bio says: “Badass adjacent. Some days I crush it. Most days, I’m just human.” That pretty much sums it up. (Oh and by the way, I hate twitter! So there’s that.) I’ve, proudly, been a coach, consultant and counselor since 2014.

My previous 17 years were spent in media/advertising sales. The most rewarding part of my first career was the opportunity to understand a client’s specific need and consultatively develop a solution together. My passion is, and has always been, to help those in need.

WHY HIRE A LIFE COACH?

There are times in our lives when we need additional support to grow in the right direction.

  • Times of crisis or forced change (job loss, divorce, death of a loved one)
  • Times you are contemplating making change (career change, relationship evolution, big life stages like kids going off to college)
  • Overwhelming, confusing transitions

My practice is an empathetic and actionable support to help you make tangible change.

Maybe you are considering changing careers, or you are struggling in a current relationship. Maybe you feel stuck, but are having trouble articulating why. If the old ways of coping aren’t working & you want to examine your life in a new way, schedule a free consultation.

more about my practice & pricing ...

Utilizing the skills of a Coach is an opportunity to create and implement a new way of life. One that is free of fear.

One that feels like coming home.

One that embraces grace.

After a free 20-30 minute initial consultation, you can choose a package of sessions (see pricing below). In these (1) hour sessions, we’ll openly explore your goals, desires & fears. The only expectation is a willingness to wonder, what if. From there, we’ll develop your customized plan, designed for your individual purpose and fulfillment.

Our sessions can be over Skype or the phone, or if you are in the Portland, OR area, in person.

Packages & Pricing:

Brand Positioning package:

This package focuses on developing your personal brand to best position yourself in the competitive work environment and in life. The emphasis will be on emotional intelligence, harnessing your natural energy, and building self-confidence. In no time, you’ll command rooms and slay dragons. $1399.  Includes: 8 sessions, 2 bonus 15 minute “911” sessions, and regular email/text communication between sessions.

Career Advancement package:

Lean in. Bail Out. Climb the Ladder or is it a Jungle Gym? It doesn’t matter. This package is all about getting where you want to go at work, more quickly. More passion, more joy, more freedom, more money. $1199. Includes: 6 sessions and email/text communication between sessions.

OTO (One Time Only) package:

This is not for the faint of heart. This is for the self-motived and self-directed. We dig in deep, fast. You’ll share a bit about your current situation, and from there, I’ll give you my unfiltered “tough love” recommendations + a set of tools you’ll utilize on your own, moving forward. $325. Includes: 1 (hour & :30 minute) session.

The foundation of each of these packages is the same: the courage and desire to change. Change yourself and you inevitably change your situation. But it takes guts to grow.

To ensure accountability + progress and maximize success, your package must be utilized within a 3 month window.

If you can’t shake the feeling that where you are just isn’t where you’re meant to be, let’s talk. And it’s all good news, by the way; having a healthy, humbling uncertainty about what steps to take is simply the beginning of what’s next.

Here’s a bit more about my Coaching philosophy: I believe we each have an individual purpose here on this planet; yet we are inextricably connected to each other. This means we have a responsibility to ourselves and each other. It also means we don’t have to go it alone. Even though it can sometimes feel like the weight & the pain is all ours to bear; support shows itself in miraculous, unexpected ways.

I try to live a life of intention and presence, which keeps me most aligned with joy and peace.

But don’t misunderstand me.

I’ve been disappointed, hurt, and at times badly shaken. The sheer joy and freedom of arriving on the other side of this darkness, back into the light, is what inspires me to help others with their own journey.

professional development

Human Capital is the most precious resource a company has.  There are tons of stats about the high cost of rehiring & retraining vs. retention, so when considering the bottom line, it’s a no brainer to invest in your employees.  There is also a ton of research around happier employees being more productive employees.  Again, that bottom line!

One mutually beneficial way to invest in your employees is training.

    In praise of the “mid-life clarification”

    Why is it called a mid-life crisis? Wikipedia says, "A midlife crisis is a transition of identity and self-confidence that can occur in middle-aged individuals, typically 45-64 years old." It conjures up images of a silver fox in a bright red Porsche, with a much younger woman in the passenger seat (probably NOT his wife). I want to change the perception or add to the dialogue a bit, and ask… Why isn't it called mid-life clarification? Here are two definitions for "clarify": 1.…  read more

    When is it time to let go?

    I don't know if you read the story about the Orca whale (Tahlequah) who's baby died shortly after being born. It captured a lot of people's attention (mine included) because the mama refused to let her lifeless baby sink to the bottom of the ocean. Instead she pushed her calf through the water, and continued to balance the baby's body, as the whale pod traveled many miles each day to find food. The story was intriguing for…  read more

    The real ROI of hiring a coach

    My phone rings and when I answer it, I don't say hello. I can see who is calling, so I simply say, "did you get it?" She giddily responds with, "I got it. I fucking got it!". "I fucking got it." Hell yes, she did. The exhilaration in her voice makes my heart want to explode. She sounds like she's won the lottery. And in some way, she has - the offer on her dream house has been officially…  read more
