Why do people seek coaching?
You can get “coached” for a variety of reasons. Most womxn I work with are seeking support with transitions. These include making career changes, nurturing creative goals, navigating relationships and uncovering aliveness in everyday life.
What about counseling?
Good therapy, coaching, and other emotional healing work have more in common than not and this becomes more true as the fields evolve. Therapy is often sought when you’re looking to heal an emotional wound or wanting to understand how past trauma might affect your current circumstances.

Sometimes going inside means embracing what we don’t like — our imperfections, our humanness. Sometimes this means grieving what was lost. Most times going inside involves offering ourselves compassion and discovering treasures.
What are some specific issues you help with?
Some of the issues I help with are: feeling blue or dissatisfied, anxiety and worry, “imposter syndrome”, managing anger, shame, work stress, boundaries, struggles with parenting, body image, creative blocks, relationships and dating, job changes, grief, divorce/break-ups and accepting new phases of life.
What’s it like to work one-on-one with you?
Through compassionate listening and honesty, I co-create space and safety for you to say what might be hard to say anyplace else. Yes, there’s visioning and action planning. We also process fears and examine obstacles. The bottom line is: being seen and deeply affirmed is healing.
We practice being in relationship to what is. The mystery, complexity, beauty and wonder of your world.
What are sessions like?
Remote sessions last 45-60 minutes. We look at what’s not working and build on the good. We explore practices that help you go inside to find your inner sources of strength and wisdom.
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 advantages of working remotely?
Phone, FaceTime or Zoom sessions are beneficial for several reasons. First, there is the convenience for both you and me. Second, especially when 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.
Do you coach coaches and do you provide business coaching?
Yes, I love working with fellow coaches and have worked with several. While I coach executives, I am not a business coach. And I’m happy to share what I know about branching out and taking on something new.
What are your rates?
The fees per session are a sliding scale between $150 – $225. If you’re seeking therapy in NJ, as an LCSW, my services may be eligible for reimbursement as an out-of-network provider.
