Coaching is beneficial for anyone seeking clarity about their current life path. In conversation together we will explore what you are wanting and how your own strengths and values can contribute to accomplishing that goal. I'll help you find fresh perspectives that will allow you to uncover new or unexpected choices, define productive actions, and set realistic commitments you want to take to move ahead. You set the agenda; I'll hold you to it.

Coaching sessions can occur in person, by phone, or via Zoom and generally take between 30 and 60 minutes. 

My Fees: I know coaching is a valuable service that can help anyone wanting and willing to step into the challenges life presents. 

I intentionally keep my fees low, so that coaching is accessible to many people.  

30 minutes: $35 

60 minutes: $60

5 hour package: $275


Not sure if coaching is for you? Need more information? Contact me for a complimentary 30 minute session.

Facilitation is helpful to groups and organizations who want to step out of their current or habitual patterns of communication to  resolve dilemmas, hear and include all voices, generate fresh ideas or review and refine strategic plans.

I'll help your group define positive agreements for working together and lead the group through structured conversations that result in positive discussion of problems, plans and performance. As your facilitator, I'll balance listening and discussion so that quiet voices are heard and dominant ones are tempered. We'll accomplish more in an hour than an afternoon of unregulated discussion.  And you'll come away with fresh insights about your work together and alternate ways to communicate, collaborate, hear and be heard.

My fees: Fees for facilitation are dependent on the size of your group and the length of your engagement with me. I offer a sliding scale for non-profits and small groups (less than 6).

$100 per hour

$250 per 3 hour session

Walk Your Path 


The Inside Outside Retreat Centre

So often we know we want, we even know what we have to do, and yet...

Coaching and facilitation can be the catalyst to helping individuals, groups and organizations find insight into what holds them back,  as well as the courage, commitment and confidence to move forward.
