Testimonials

“I knew that she was going to be a good coach when she started her visit to a class I was teaching by leading the group in taking a few deep breaths. She did the same thing when we’d begin a coaching session. It was like a Tibetan singing bowl of breath, signifying a break with the quotidian events and enter a shining, sacred space of reflection. That being said, I was still nervous every time I anticipated talking to Mandy. I would try to think of excuses not to talk. But that nervousness would melt away as she gently but firmly led those sessions from the exterior world to the interior.

“She would break through my chattering mind and its chattering mouth to get to the roots of things, asking how I felt, emotionally and physically, quieting the mind’s seemingly incessant running commentary to provide some space for clarity into how my feet felt, my shoulders, my hands, my stomach. It’s like she was digging into the mountain of me to find the vein of lived experience, the motherlode of core reasons and root causes. That’s how I came to really understand that I wanted to leave my job, wanted to better love my wife, wanted to be an active presence in the life of my family. But it’s also how I came to see my own feelings of obligation as a part of the problem. It was illuminating and liberating.

“Now, I find I am better able to interrogate my assumptions at work, at home and in the community, to ask if I’m in fact the one to help or the one that needs support on my own path. It’s been a few weeks since my last session, and I’m missing it as I write this, missing the emotional workout of a coaching session, and the subsequent sense of calm that attended its conclusion.

“I began as a life coach skeptic and ended up a zealot, eager to spread the good news of what these sessions meant to and did for me.”

– Christian

What is a life coach?

A life coach is someone who helps you create the life you want. Just like an athletic coach can help a hard-working athlete dramatically improve, a life coach helps you reach goals or make transformational changes in any area of life.

Are you ready for a change? With 1-on-1 holistic life coaching, I can help you discover + create a dream life, one step at a time. 

Life Design  We’ll get creative. I call my coaching “holistic” because we look at the whole shebang: work, romance, money, fun, contribution… Maybe you know exactly what you want. More likely, you’re not sure… but you sense that something’s missing. (Hint: your heart + soul will guide you.)

Action Plans  We’ll get practical. There’s a gap between where you are today and where you want to go. Whether you’re taking baby steps or taking on a massive life makeover, I’ll hold you accountable as you take real action towards your dreams.

Roadblocks  We’ll get honest. Whether it’s fear or those tired old self-doubt records, we’ll face them together.
