One-on-One Coaching


Certainly, coaching is a hot trend.  But, bottom line – it is only effective in a partnership that works. My goal is to help you create YOUR ideal plan designed around the life that you want to lead.  Whether starting or running a business, contemplating a career change or going through one of life’s transitional stages –  I guide you through it all. Meanwhile, I’ll encourage you to throw out the illusive concept of balance and instead, to create a life that blends both business and personal – work and family.

So, let’s test the status quo and ignite your light ….starting from within.

Full disclaimer:  I believe with every fibre of my being that we all have a light to shine and sometimes just need to clear the clutter, find our unique way and set sail. You should also know that I’m not big on ‘woo woo’ but I do believe in self-care and self-love with a healthy dose of indulgence. On the other hand, I have definitely been known to lose myself in deep thought, writing, books, music and nature.

Above all, I share all this because a good fit is everything so here is what I believe in.

What I Believe In

I Believe….

  • We all have our own unique light to shine.
  • That we have to craft a plan that fits with our unique stage of life – that will probably look different if you’re a mom, launching a business or climbing the corporate ladder.​
  • Work-Life Balance is an illusion whereas Work-Life Blend can give you happiness in your work, wellness in your daily life, peace of mind in your thoughts.
  • That our history matters because it sets the stage for our life experiences but that we can change our story for our present and future.
  • We need to put on our own oxygen mask first to be our best self for those around us.
  • That we all want to give back and that we can create our own version of community.
  • Change happens from the inside out and that means being more loyal to your dreams than to your fears.
Do YOU believe in any of those things? Then let’s delve deeper.

Imagine If You....

  • Discovered once and for all WHAT you want, HOW to achieve it and WHY it matters.
  • Had a road map with clear strategies to accomplish your goals– like creating an action plan or getting on
    top of your financial woes or jumpstarting your health goals – and were actually applying it to your life.
  • Had a cheerleader that would help you figure it out, dole out real solutions with the perfect mix of gentle encouragement, tough love and ‘get it done’ inspiration.
  • Abandoned the illusion of balance and instead, created a life that blends your priorities with a toolkit that fits your unique needs.
  • Broke through self-limiting barriers – learned to say no, dropped self-guilt and self-doubt, kicked
    procrastination and perfection to the curb, put your oxygen mask on first to better serve you and ultimately, those around you too.

I’m here to help you make the change, do the work, get the results.

Or Choose a Speed Coaching Session

These coaching sessions are short, sweet and super impactful. If you want a one-off session that is to the point, and still fun and energetic, check out these options.

This is one of my most popular coaching options — a laser-focused strategy session suitable to those entrepreneurial spirits that have a lot of great ideas swirling in their brains.  I will facilitate you and/or your team (maximum 3 people) to create an idea incubator, complete with clarity to prioritize your efforts and launch into action.  Top that off with in-depth business advice, knowledge sharing and leading-edge resources to amp up results. It looks different for every business so let’s explore what your session plan would look like.

Sometimes you just need what you need.  Together, we can determine what exactly that is and the steps to nudge you forward.  If you’re stuck, I’ll get you “unstuck” to create a plan that fits your unique circumstances. Let’s connect to see what might work for you.
