Individual Coaching

A powerful, dynamic relationship in which I partner with people in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.  The work we do focuses on purpose and values in order to create balance, fulfillment, achievement and possibility.

After an exploratory conversation, we’ll decide whether we’re a good match to work together. New clients are asked to make a three month/10 session commitment. The reason we commit to 3 months together is that there is typically a honeymoon period and then a dip, and then an upswing and then another dip.  We want to work through these ups and downs together because they are when patterns show up, and we can unpack whether they are helpful or hurtful, whether they are honoring your values or are “saboteurs.” After the 3 months, we discuss whether to continue weekly, bi-weekly, once per month, or as needed.

My fee is $150 per session, and each session is approximately 30-45 minutes except for the (first) foundation session which is 60 minutes in length.  Our work together includes unlimited text and emails.  Sessions are typically conducted over the phone or via skype/facetime.

My primary job as your coach is to help you access your inner wisdom, purpose and values, and learn the tools to manifest it all.  You are responsible for showing up at each session with a topic – what do you want to get out of our conversation? What is your intention? Frequently, there are “homework” assignments between sessions to help you master new skills and deepen your discovery process. (You always have the option to responding to a homework request with a “yes,” “no” or make a counter offer.)

Email me for current availability. If I don’t have any openings, I can refer you to other coaches that might be a good match. I can also put you on the wait list.

 

Workshops & Small Group Work

One of the most important things you can do on this earth is to let people know they are not alone.
— Shannon L. Alder

Isn’t is a relief to know that you’re not the only one?  Workshops and group work provide a unique opportunity to commune with like-minded people who have a shared experience. It also helps to deepen your understanding of the challenges you are facing, and the tools that you can use to move forward successfully with clarity and purpose.

I offer four different types of group work:

An Extraordinary Life: Less Stress, More Money, Your Goals Achieved Workshop

A hands-on, dynamic one day workshop to help you de-stress, re-fuel your bank, and achieve your goals. Join me and two other amazing coaches Katy Chen Mazarra and Sandie Bass on Sunday, September 22, 2019 from 10 am - 5 pm in downtown Los Angeles for a fun, transformative experience. Space is limited. Registration opens on August 31, 2019 and there will be an early bird discount for a short window. If you’d like to be on my mailing list for more details when they become available, click here.

Vision Boards

Creating a literal image of your life (personal, professional, health, home, etc.) is an incredible tool to making that vision real. It’s a fun, profound experience to craft a vision board that represents your dreams, goals, and purpose.  Some people make a board that’s specific to their career, or relationship, or health, or vacations, or a dream home, or plans for the year. The possibilities are endless.  I provide all the materials and guidance, you bring your heart, mind and spirit.  If you’d like to be on my mailing list for the next gathering, click here.

We meet in downtown Los Angeles, and it’s typically about 3 hours. Limited to 10 people, cost is $35 per person.

 

Beginning January 2020, I will be offering the following group sessions:

Leadership & Transformation

Leadership is about one’s ability to touch, move and inspire others towards a shared vision of possibility. It’s not management although it incorporates managerial skills. It’s not about being an extrovert, although there are great leaders who are … many of the most effective leaders I’ve worked with are actually introverts.  Leadership is about accessing the part of yourself that is bold, wise, courageous, compassionate and curious in order to be of service to others and the greater good. This group is designed for people who are ready, willing and able to make a difference in their work, community and the world. We meet once per month from January - June with rigorous assignments in between in order to identify and meet your potential as a leader. 3rd Saturday of each month in downtown Los Angeles from 10:30 am – 1 pm, limited to 8 committed individuals. Each meeting is $135, and can be paid monthly or receive a 20% discount by paying full up front. You must commit to the full 6 month program. 

 
 

Moving Through Professional Loss and Grief

Talking about and sharing experiences of grief that aren’t related to death can be a taboo topic. And yet, people experience deep feelings of heartbreak through professional losses – everything ranging from being fired, downsized, let go, a project not moving forward or cancelled, inability to find new opportunities.  Many people are confused by the sense of melancholy, despair and sadness they feel over “something so small.”  I often hear, “It’s not like someone has died …” And yet, people who are in mourning can sometimes feel stuck and “can’t move on.”  This group is designed for individuals who are experiencing non-death related loss and need a safe, confidential space to find solace and agency in sharing with others.  The work we do will vary from meeting to meeting – we may talk, we may do art, we may do physical embodiments, we may do writing exercises. Participation is on a rolling basis, but is limited to 8 people per meeting.  We meet on the 4th Saturday of each month in Downtown Los Angeles from 10:30 – 12:30 pm beginning January 2020. Each meeting is $50. 

Please note that each participant will be required to sign a confidentiality agreement.
