“I should be able to figure things out on my own,” isn’t a winning strategy in life.
If you want to level up in your personal and professional life, don’t go it alone.

So your life isn’t how you thought it’d be. You’re still determined and motivated to take things to the next level. But, so far, you haven’t really been able to do it on your own.

This is normal. Life is messy.

Many of us face challenges at work and at home that keep us from living life to the fullest. And many of these struggles cross over from our personal lives to our work lives and back again.

So maybe you are stretched thin from being pulled in every direction at work and at home. Maybe lack of confidence is creating problems for you in both your personal and professional life.

Maybe you feel a lot of pressure in different areas in your life and it’s like you’re trapped in a downward spiral.

Okay, okay, maybe these aren’t just hypothetical “maybes.” I can share these examples with you because I’ve lived them.

I know what it’s like to feel overwhelmed by work, exhausted by constantly trying to meet others’ (and my own) expectations of me, and paralyzed by anxiety about things in my work and personal life.

But with a lot of help, support, and introspective work, I don’t live like that anymore.

Now I help others professionals find ways to work and live happier. I help them overcome barriers and take things to the next level – whether they’re entrepreneurs, lawyers, doctors, writers, journalists, or creatives.

I'm proud to say that I've helped my clients get concrete results, like helping:

  • a doctor negotiate a 20% raise;

  • a lawyer prepare for executive leadership job interviews; and

  • a solopreneur land 5-figure contracts for her business.

We all struggle in our personal and professional lives.
But we don’t have to go it alone.

What Sessions Are Like

All the coaching sessions are shaped by your goals. At the beginning of Don’t Go It Alone, we will spend some time identifying and refining your top 3 professional goals and top 3 personal goals. These goals will show us where to direct our attention and energy first.

During subsequent sessions, we will work on systematically getting you to your goals. There will be barriers and obstacles along the way. But we will explore and dig deep into whatever life or work struggles you are experiencing. Once we have a good grasp of what’s going on and holding you back, we can start brainstorming and strategizing solutions that will work for you. We will also be using the sessions to keep you on track and accountable to your goals – don’t worry, I’ve been told I’m quite the taskmaster!

These are some of the things that my clients get out of this program:

  • knowing exactly what they want in life,

  • personalized strategies for how to get what they want in life,

  • the ability to stay accountable to themselves and their goals,
