Career and Life Balance Coaching

Although we love working with all clients on career and life balance issues, we have a particular focus of working with moms in this area of our practice.

As moms, many of us hold multiple roles and have wonderful but often complex choices to make about how we parent, partner, work (or don’t work), and live our lives.  The opportunity to care for and nurture people we love so much and also create a meaningful life for ourselves is truly a gift.  But balancing family, friends, work and our own self-care and personal development gets messy sometimes!  For most of us, this generally does not look like evenly distributing our time and energy.  Priorities can shift from one day to the next, and sometimes one minute to the next.

There is of course no right answer, and no perfect, one-size-fits-all solution to balancing everything that’s so important.  What works and feels right during a particular time in our lives is unique to each of us.  My own experience is that being conscious about why and how we choose to focus our energy makes all the difference to our happiness and the impact we have.  Because I am practicing these same things myself everyday, I love working with other moms on developing their careers and life balance.

Focus Areas for Career and Life Balance

Working together means engaging with me as your sounding board, thought partner and passionately supportive coach to get focused and take action in areas such as:

  • Clarifying priorities and balancing work and family commitments
  • Leadership development and career growth for corporate moms
  • Deciding to work outside the home full-time, part-time, or not at all, and transitioning from one to the other
  • Launching, reinventing or growing a business
  • Integrating self-care and personal time into your priorities
  • Simplifying “to-dos” and managing time and energy.

How We Work

Individual sessions are 60 minutes long, generally by phone and/or Skype, and sometimes face to face.  I’ve worked with moms all over the world!  Coaching virtually works beautifully and allows for easier, more flexible scheduling by reducing any travel time you might have.

Coaching fees vary based on the frequency of sessions per month, and the length of time we coach together. Most often coaching lasts a minimum of 4 months, coaching 2x per month, but we can work together in a single 90 minute laser strategy session.  I also always hold two sliding scale/pro bono spaces open in my practice specifically for moms completely invested in coaching, but with limited financial resources at the moment.  Consideration for one of these spaces is by request.

Complimentary Sessions

I offer 30-minute complimentary coaching sessions for potential clients to experience coaching and see if it’s a fit.
