Working with Me

What’s it like to work with you? 

Yes, there’s goal-setting and accountability, there’s visioning and action planning.  But more than that, there’s space and safety to say what’s hard to say anyplace else.  There’s processing fears and what’s holding you back. There’s being deeply affirmed and acknowledged so that moving through life becomes easier, more fluid.  See what others have to say about my work.

Sometimes going inside means embracing what we don’t like about ourselves — our imperfections, our humanness.  Sometimes this means grieving what was lost.  Most times going inside means offering ourselves compassion and discovering treasures. All of it is based on what is present and alive in you right now.

Why do women seek coaching? 

You can get “coached” for a variety of reasons.  Most women I work with are seeking personal or spiritual development and support with transitions or new ventures. These include creative goals, career changes, relationships, self-care, work-life balance, motherhood, divorce, and uncovering aliveness and meaning in everyday life.  Click here to read about some differences between therapy and coaching.  

What are sessions like? 

Phone sessions last 50 minutes and we meet three times a month.  (New clients work with me a minimum of 3 months.)  We build on what’s good in your life.  We illuminate your values, your gifts. We get to know the part of you who knows, who is wise. To be able to access her whenever you need to. You learn practices that help you go inside to find your inner sources of strength and wisdom.

It’s simple,  we practice being in relationship to what is.  The mystery, complexity, beauty and wonder of your world.  You get to be with what’s true for you and that has profound impact on all areas of your life. It’s really about getting the support to really be you, no apologies, no boxes, no shoulds.

What are advantages of working over the phone?

Phone sessions are beneficial for several reasons.  First, there is convenience and minimizing travel time.  (I have several clients who live in other states.)  Second, in connecting over the phone we get to focus on expression through words.  You don’t have to worry about what you look like or are dressed like.   Third, I’m able to keep the cost of sessions relatively low by working from my home office.  (Clients and I sometimes choose to FaceTime or Skype when needed.

Do you coach coaches and do you provide business coaching? 

Yes, I love working with fellow coaches and have worked with several!  And no, though I’m happy to share what I know about branching out and starting something new, I don’t do business coaching.  

I don’t promise you that if you only change your thinking you’ll be rich, I don’t promise magic potions to achieve your dreams. I do promise greater freedom and fulfillment through authenticity, support, and your own deep wisdom…

What are your rates? 

Individual coaching sessions– three sessions per month– is $310 per month.  New clients sign up for a minimum of three months.  After the initial three months other options are available including small group coaching .  I offer a flat rate of $90 per session for educators and school personnel.
