Coaching is not just for elite entrepreneurs and CEOs.

It's a well-established, results-oriented practice for anyone who wants to reset or clarify their path ahead.

As a Zen teacher, educator, and nonprofit executive, I offer one-on-one coaching that supports clients in taking bold and authentic next steps—whether personal, professional, or both.

More specifically, I can help you:


  • successfully navigate career and life transitions;

  • strengthen goal setting, time management, project management, & accountability skills;

  • enhance leadership effectiveness;

  • re-set life balance, meaning, and direction;

  • align work with values;

  • complete writing projects (fiction, nonfiction, poetry).


You can benefit from coaching if you identify with any of the following: 

  • You're feeling overwhelmed or underwhelmed by the options in your life;

  • You feel the need to live with more purpose and authenticity but you're not sure how to proceed;


  • You are in the midst of a career or life transition and would like clarity about next steps;

  • You're experiencing burnout or a toxic work environment;

  • You know what you want and how to proceed, but you're not proceeding;

  • You would like to start or complete a writing project but are currently

              feeling stuck;

  • You would like to improve goal-setting, time management, or project management skills;

  • You believe you would benefit from an accountability partner.
