Coaching

I am a single mom coach and meditation teacher. My coaching relies on a combination of working together and setting you up to go deep within to determine what you want your life to look like. I use meditation, art practices, journaling, mudras, mantras, safe & simple yoga poses, and other practices to help you be more mindful while also focusing on the future and creating the big, beautiful life you dream of.

What can we work on in coaching?

Anything you want!

Some of the things my clients come to me knowing they want to work on include:

  • Overcoming a breakup or divorce
  • Building their confidence & practicing self-acceptance & self-love
  • Exploring specific thoughts, dreams, or feelings
  • Releasing past stories & limiting beliefs that are sabotaging their goals
  • Planning a relocation, career change, or other significant life change
  • Learning how to co-parent with a combative or impassive ex
  • Dipping back into the dating pool again

Single mom coaching is about you. It’s about YOU deciding what YOU want to do and helping YOU break down those goals and dreams so YOU can accomplish them. My role is to support you. My role is to keep you focused, assist you in breaking your dreams and goals into manageable steps, hold you accountable for following through on what you say you want to do, and helping you shift focus when you accomplish or change a goal or dream.

I want to help you:

  • Ease anxiety
  • Embrace more love and laughter
  • Reduce stress
  • Let go of the past
  • Plan for and start building your future
  • Enjoy parenting as a solo mom
  • Get ready to date again
  • Follow your dreams
  • Live a life you truly love

What are my options?

I offer two options for coaching: more “traditional” video/phone coaching and email coaching.

Traditional video/phone coaching requires you to set aside at least an hour for our sessions every week, two weeks, or month (depending on the package). Between sessions, you’ll have “homework” to complete. This homework can be actions you’ll take to move you toward your goals or it might be a worksheet, meditation, art or journaling prompt or something else to help you get more insight, develop more self-awareness, and heal from the things that are currently keeping you feeling stuck.

Email coaching, which is most popular with the single moms I work with, offers you more flexibility. Because we rely on email to communicate, you’re not required to set aside a chunk of time for sessions. It also offers more frequent communication, which many moms like as they feel it allows them to make more progress because they don’t need to take notes and wait for their next session to bring things up.

Which option is better for me?

That depends on you. If you’re looking for more immediate feedback, such as me interrupting you to ask a question or remind you of something you’ve said before, video/phone coaching would be better for you. Video/phone coaching would also be better for you if you feel it’s easier to express yourself verbally or rely on body language to get your point across (i.e., “talk with your hands”). If you feel like people often misunderstand your emails or texts, video/phone coaching would be best for you. Video/phone coaching is also ideal for those moms who want someone to bounce ideas off of and come up with a plan but then want to move forward on their own and only reach out before their next session if they run into a significant issue.

Email coaching is perfect for busy single moms who don’t have a flexible schedule or are unwilling or unable to set aside an entire hour at once for a session where you won’t be interrupted. Email coaching is also good for moms who feel they express themselves better in the written word, prefer to take their time and refine what they’re thinking, and send their email to me when they feel ready rather than showing up for a session merely because it’s been scheduled. Email coaching is also best for introverts, shy moms, or moms who otherwise feel that they can be more honest and open without the intensity that comes with the eye contact of a video session or the connection of a voice on the phone. Email coaching is perfect for the mom who wants to feel like there’s someone there, holding her hand and pushing her forward, rather than going it alone.

If it’s all about mindfulness, why do you offer email coaching for those who “don’t have time?”

Because it’s not about those who “don’t have time,” per se. Mindfulness is about being in the present moment. Traditional coaching requires scheduling a session ahead of time – and what happens when life prevents you from attending that session? You’re out the cost of a session without the benefit of coaching. I’m left with an hour with no client – and possibly no communication as to why. It frustrates both of us.

Email coaching, on the other hand, flows around your life. You email me when it works for you and once I respond, you read it when it works for you. If your kid gets sick, you have to work late, or anything else comes up, it doesn’t matter because the email coaching is still there when you’re ready.

Also in the spirit of mindfulness, what happens when you’ve scheduled a session but you’re not ready when the time comes? Maybe you didn’t have a chance to do the homework yet. Or maybe you’re still trying to make some decisions so you’re not sure what you’d want to cover in the session. Or maybe you’re just not in the right mental space for a session right then and there. Again, email coaching affords you the chance to engage when you want, rather than on a fixed schedule. It gives you more flexibility and freedom which translates to getting more from coaching.

What’s an “Extra Support” text session?

Whether you choose video/phone or email coaching, sometimes something comes up that you need to talk to your coach and get a response ASAP. You can’t wait for your next session or to send an email and get a response. An “Extra Support” text session allows you to text me and get a more immediate response. Obviously, because I meet with other clients, it may not be an instant response if I’m in a session. But with an “Extra Support” text session, you’ll get a response within two hours.

Why only three? Because one of the tenets of coaching is that you, the client, have the ability and power within you to set goals, make decisions, and take action. As your coach, I’m here to support you as you do those things, but ultimately you’re the one doing them. So I limit you to three “Extra Support” text sessions to encourage you to set goals, make decisions, and take action on your own as much as possible. But when you truly feel paralyzed, need someone to help you walk through the options, or just be a cheerleader and tell you you know what you’re doing, that’s when you can reach out for that more immediate support.

An “Extra Support” text session is limited to texts sent in a single day. If I send a reply and you do not respond within 4 hours, the text session is considered complete.

Pricing

I offer three coaching packages for 1:1 coaching:

Coffee Chat (Traditional Phone/Video Coaching)

Do you already know exactly what you what but you just need a little confidence boost to go after it? Maybe you’ve been moving right along on the path toward your goal but you’re stuck and need someone to help you get unstuck? Are you already familiar with being mindful but need a refresher to bring it back into your daily life? Then a Coffee Chat may be all you need!

I firmly believe that getting the most out of coaching comes from the relationship that is built over time as we work together and I begin to understand your needs better. But sometimes all you need is a single session to get back on track or make sure you haven’t veered off-track. A Coffee Chat is a single 90-minute session that is focused on a single topic or area of focus (for example: making sure you’re moving in the right direction for going back to school or creating an online dating profile). In it, we’ll discuss your intentions and goals for the session, go over what’s holding you back, create an action plan to start making real progress, and set (or reset) deadlines to keep you going.

You’ll be able to reach out after the session to ask follow-up questions, discuss alternatives if one of your actions doesn’t go according to plan, or just let me know how it all goes for you!

 

  • Single 90-minute session
  • Email support up to 2x after session with responses within 48 hours Monday-Friday
  • $200/session

This 6-month coaching package will be a deep dive into who you are and what you want.

You’ll explore possibilities for the future and take steps to not only make a plan but to start taking action on that plan.
