You’re a purpose-driven human with a complex set of yearnings. Sometimes, you wrestle to reconcile the parts of your identity that seem to conflict — the personal ambition and the belief in collective care, the rebelliousness and the practicality, the privilege and the oppression, the individuality and the belonging. You want to find softness in the squaring.
You probably struggle with perfectionism and/or people-pleasing. (These are just two of the toxic teachings of capitalism, white supremacy, and patriarchy, folks!) You want to communicate the truths you tend to swallow, which means learning to trust your own voice.
Speaking of trusting your voice: you’re craving creativity, but you’re also a little bit scared of it. Maybe you need guidance and practical support on a creative project, or maybe you just need a loving nudge to “get your butt in the chair” (as Anne Lammott says).
You tend to abandon your body when shit gets hard, especially if you deal with chronic illness. To care for the animal of your self can feel like a heavy burden, but you want to cultivate tenderness towards your sensitive anatomy and grounding in your own bones.
You’re an advocate for social change, but you’re not quite sure how to advocate for yourself. You want to find agency and a sense of ownership over your own narrative. Really, you just want to feel free to be who you are.
And me: I’m an advocate for you — for your truth, your growth, and your liberation from what was never yours. My job is to light candles in your blind spots, co-sign your personal permission slips, and help articulate what you already know is true.
I integrate a range of coaching modalities (with a focus on Narrative Coaching and Internal Family Systems) with multiple fields I’ve spent years studying, from sustainability and social justice to astrology and ecology. These disciplines all depend on systems theory, a framework that honors the complex diversity of relationships that make up a larger, dynamic whole. I also draw on my own personal experience as a queer, chronically ill, multi-passionate woman who has had to learn to say “no,” to start with courage and quit with grace, and to let her body lead the way.
In a traditional coaching session, you tell your stories. I listen. I question. I hold. Together, we reflect. We dig. We talk about…
- What you actually want. No, really. No, really.
- The people, places, and plot lines that sustain you, and how to play an active, honest role in these relationships and stories that structure your life.
- The principles of sustainability that are essential to personal and collective transformation, and how Mother Nature (nickname: Mama Nay) can help us understand the true nature of human growth. (Hint: it’s circular, not linear.)
- The sticky, tricky aspects of your astrological birth chart, and how they’re all just invitations in disguise.
- The toxic isms — capitalism, racism, sexism, ableism — that uproot you from yourself and displace you from your role as protagonist in your own narrative.
- Coming back home to yourself, and letting your body in.
- Ways to re-root as you reroute — to ground in the movement of growth and change.
- Agency. Accountability. Communication. Integrity.
We work to shape clearer, truer narratives about who you are, what you need, what you deserve, and what you believe — and then align those narratives with the way you actually show up in the living world.
WHERE AND WHEN?
Typically, we meet twice a month for an hour on Zoom. In between, I’m available for email support, and you’ll have soft assignments to work through.
To reroute and reroot. To rewrite your core story. And aren’t you thirsty? There’s something that wants to grow, if you plant and water the seeds.
HOW IT ALL WORKS (AKA, COACHING PACKAGES)
Any package may be paid upfront in full, or via a 3-, 6-, or 12-month payment plan. (There’s no penalty for choosing the latter — a radical business practice inspired by the work of Bear Hebert.)
- 3-month coaching package
- 1 intro session + 2 sessions/month
- 7 sessions total
- $185 per session = $1,295 total
- 6-month coaching package
- 1 intro session + 2 sessions/month
- 13 sessions total
- $185 per session = $2,405 total
This is for those specifically interested in an astrological perspective. In each of your 12 main sessions, we’ll explore one of the 12 houses of your birth chart, which anchor different realms of your life — career, community, and intimacy, for example. We’ll discuss what your chart suggests about your authentic embodiment in these varying settings, helping you shape a life that’s holistically yours.
COACHING FOR CREATIVES
Maybe you’re working on a school admissions essay, but you can’t quite get the story down. Maybe you’re need hands-on support to build a regular writing, drawing, or photography practice. These sessions can be offered as one-offs or longer-term packages, and they can be structured to include some practical guidance and editing help alongside more traditional coaching to get you clear on your voice and vision.
CREATE YOUR OWN OPTION
If these traditional arrangements aren’t quite right, we can co-create an option that works for you, i.e. just three once-a-month sessions if that’s what you can afford right now, or weekly meetings if you want more hands on support.
