Feel like you need support that addresses your emotional, psychological or spiritual needs and also provides tangible resources?
Looking for an alternative to talk therapy or the “just do it” approach of some kinds of coaching?
Ready to make a difference and work from the inside out?
Knowledge is power. In personal coaching, I partner with you to become an expert on you to more fully access your power and Self-Leadership. We’ll work together to understand what makes you tick, what you really want, who you really are, and how you can tap into motivating beliefs to create the life that you seek. We’ll clarify your goals, make an inventory of your strengths and vulnerabilities, analyze our findings and develop an action plan that is informed by a deep understanding of your operating system. I’ll stay with you throughout the process, providing resources and helping to light your new path as you move toward claiming and sharing more of yourself.
With personal coaching, you’ll experience a new integrated model of personal, relational and social change that combines a therapeutic approach, coaching and, when desired, what I call cultural therapy, which directly links your unique value with what’s most needed in the world to increase your impact and sense of belonging.
I also provide coaching for duos — colleagues, business partners, co-founders, family members and others. When you’re taking leaps in your own individual trajectory, it can be really helpful to bring in those close to you to work through key issues and amplify community and meaning. Clients often choose a combination of individual and duo coaching.

“Don’t ever underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own.”
“Cathy helped me through a difficult time in my life. She was very creative in her methods and always looked for ways to make the process very personal. I would recommend her to anyone that is in need of a life coach or career coach. I plan on keeping in touch with her and using her services in the future.”
—Jennifer Insignares, Turn Your Vision into Reality at Designs by Jen
“I went to Cathy at a crossroads. I felt stuck and uninspired by my career and that my personal life was unfulfilling. I couldn’t decide what to do next. With impressive quickness, Cathy got a strong sense of my skills, strengths and weaknesses, passions and gifts. She gave me ideas I never could have dreamed up on my own that were amazingly insightful and tailored to me. I felt a noticeable lift and change in my self-awareness. From there, she coached me through substantial changes in the way I approached work, relationships and even my inner life, while always being there with resources and encouragement. It was a truly transformative experience.
