Individual Coaching

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

My twitter bio says: “Badass adjacent. Some days I crush it. Most days, I’m just human.” That pretty much sums it up. In other words, I’m not perfect, but I will work my ass off for you. I’ve, proudly, been a coach, consultant and counselor since 2014.

I spent the previous 17 years in media/advertising sales, so I’m well-versed in what it takes to get promoted, how to lead, how to succeed individually & on a team, and the value of the almighty dollar. Caveat: my best learnings were through mistakes and missteps!


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

  • Overwhelming, confusing transitions (including getting your dream job or big promotion)
  • Times you are contemplating making change (career change, relationship evolution, big milestones)
  • Times of crisis or forced change (job loss, divorce, death of a loved one)

My practice is an empathetic and actionable support to help you make pro-active, tangible change.

Maybe you are considering changing careers, or you are struggling as a newly promoted leader. 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 embraces your unique contribution to the world. One that is free of fear.  One that feels like coming home.

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. This work is an opportunity to solidify your leadership style. 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 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.

The highest intention of my work is to empower clients to evolve the current value proposition (in business & in life) by more fully integrating our feminine strengths. To examine what’s working and what’s not in the current patriarchal designed systems of business, government & moral authority. To prioritize more joy, more meaning, more success, through a balanced lens and with systems that support a new paradigm. That works for FOR ALL OF US, regardless of gender. When women have more seats at the table, everyone will eat well.

I try to live a life of intention, 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.


“Don’t think. It complicates things. just feel, and if it feels like home, then follow its path.” – R.M. Drake

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.

    What “Tidying Up” reveals about America’s Culture of anxiety & achievement

    What do you do when you feel out of control? How do you cope? Me… well, I usually go shopping. I buy a new outfit or maybe makeup, which I pretend will magically transform me to an uber confident super model. It never does. It's probably an attempt to control something when I feel in control of nothing. It doesn't work. Or I manically clean the house. I assume this is an unhealthy example of me trying to find…  read more

    The Secret to Employee Retention & Loyalty (hint: it ain’t the free food)

    Why are so many employees desperate to chuck their job, either for a job at a competitor or getting out all together and launching their own business? B/c they have the sinking suspicion that their current company would chuck them in no time, with less thought, feeling or consideration. How can companies create a happier workforce and even long-term loyalty? It ain’t about the gold watch & pension plan of my father’s generation, and it ain’t the free snacks…  read more
