I help individuals across the U.S. who want to create their ideal work life. My programs combine individualized, one-on-one life coaching with other relevant products and services.

My approach allows you to:

1) Quickly get the results you want by resolving your current challenges at their root cause level, and

2) Skillfully navigate future changes by teaching you the key self-coaching skills that I’ve learned over decades of training, experience, and personal development.

What you’ll achieve

Based on past client experiences, you can expect our work together to bring you results like these:

Quick relief from big stressors (e.g. no longer frustrated by coworker’s behavior, easily complete long-overdue tasks, stop working weekend hours…)

More effectiveness at work (e.g. lead with more compassion, launch new offerings, maintain calm amidst situational chaos, transform your workspace…)

Changes to your work life (e.g. land a new job in a new industry, launch a passion project, change roles, start or grow your own business…)

Changes outside of work (e.g. get great sleep, have more time to pursue a hobby, experience more romance, enjoy an invigorating morning routine…)

Clarity about the work life you want

More confidence in yourself, your strengths, and your decision making

Self-coaching skills to effectively navigate life changes for years to come

I can’t predict where you and I might go. But I do promise to consistently bring you my best—including my expertise, presence, curiosity, respect, compassion, and lightheartedness—to help you efficiently discover and create your ideal work life.

Who I work with

My most successful clients tend to be mid-career women who are high-achievers—they love pursuing challenges and getting things done—and want their work to provide a sense of purpose and meaning. (Often, this “work” is the work that pays the bills, but not always.)

They might want to feel happier within their current gig, or they might be looking for an entirely new career option. Either way, they’ve probably been getting intuitive hits about what they’re meant to do next (in the language of want, desire, curiosity), and they’re not sure how to balance that information with everything else they need to accomplish.

How to learn more

I’d love to talk with you to learn more about what you’re looking for and how I might be able to help. To set this up, click below to reserve time on my calendar.

For me, asking for help when I’ve been feeling frustrated, unhappy, and even hopeless has been incredibly uncomfortable. While talking is a necessary step before we’d agree to work together, I understand that for some, it can take time to get there. If you’re not ready to talk, you’re welcome to email me with your situation and questions. You can find my email address in the footer at the very bottom of this webpage.

  • Anne Thompson

    “I signed up with Coach Kubicek because my wheels were spinning with so many ideas, yet I wasn’t moving forward. Mandy helped me settle myself down, intentionally choose a direction, and create a path to get there. She asked gentle, pertinent questions that addressed the internal challenges that were holding me back, freeing me to express my creative potential. My income immediately increased, and the systems she introduced are still a part of my routine. I loved the time I spent with Mandy!”

    – Annie

  • “When I started to explore hiring a coach, I needed clarity and direction. Through Mandy’s help, I found more calm, joy, and gratitude.

She has an amazing presence and makes coaching fun. I would select Mandy to work with again!”

  • Lindsay Wolfe Google Ads expert

    “Working with Mandy was truly an incredible experience. I started my coaching calls at the very beginning of launching my advertising company and was looking for guidance and tools to fight the self doubt and discouragement that every business owner faces. I never expected to learn so much about myself, gain so much self confidence, and really nail down the heart and passion behind why I chose to do what I do. I learned and grew so much during our calls, and my business has been able to grow!”

    – Lindsay

  • “I started working with Mandy when I knew I had changes coming in my career and wanted help navigating them. Mandy helped me step back and see the big picture during a time when the many small decisions could have had me miss the forest for the trees. Her style of positive reinforcement while providing structure and guidance to let me reach my own decisions gave me confidence both in myself and the decisions I was making. She kept me moving forward and I resolved unknowns much more quickly and more decisively than I would have on my own. Thanks Mandy!”

    “Several times this week, I caught myself sitting at my desk looking out the window smiling. I am truly happy and feel content with work for the first time in a long time. I really enjoy what I’m doing and the flexibility it provides.”

    – Anonymous

  • “Mandy broke through my chattering mind to provide some space for clarity. That’s how I came to understand that I wanted to leave my job, better love my wife, and be an active presence in the life of my family. It was illuminating and liberating. 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.”

    “Mandy’s best quality is how approachable she is. I’ve always felt instant comfort in my conversations with her, knowing that she has my best interest in mind — and that’s critical of your coach. She makes it easy to open up about mental roadblocks, anxieties, and even accomplishments. She taught me to dig deep, challenge assumptions, and give myself credit. Mandy is awesome!”

Frequently asked questions

Read on for answers to Frequently Asked Questions about my individual life coaching.

What is life coaching?

Coaching is partnering with clients to help them maximize their joy.

As life coach and client, we create a collaborative partnership. You already have everything you need. My intent is to help you find your own answers.

Here’s an analogy. When we’re physically sick, doctors heal us. Personal trainers and athletic coaches help us reach a new level of physical success. Similarly, therapists help us heal mentally and emotionally. Life coaches help us reach a new level of mental and emotional wellness.

How long have you been coaching? Are you professionally trained?

In a sense, all of my life! As far back as elementary school, I’ve been known for my curiosity and insightful questions. 

I’ve been a professional life coach since 2017. My training includes the best-in-class Martha Beck Life Coach Training program, Byron Katie’s School for the Work, an MBA from Olin Business School at Washington University in St. Louis, and a BS from the Raikes School at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.

I use the same tools I teach my clients, and I continue to grow and learn every day.

Where are your coaching sessions held—in person, over the phone?

Our one-on-one sessions will be conducted by phone or Zoom video conference. 

Virtual coaching sessions offer a few benefits. One: You get to be in control of creating a comfortable, private space to do this important work. Two: It’s efficient. And when you’re in transition, energy management is especially important. Three: I can serve you more effectively because I have fewer distractions.

I’m overwhelmed as it is. How much time will I have to invest?

This is a common concern. However, my previously-overwhelmed clients quickly find more than enough time to fully engage with our partnership.

Some coaches help you “hustle.” But most of my clients are achievers who have no problem getting stuff done! I provide a judgment-free space where you can slow down, energize, reconnect with what’s most important to you, subtract what’s not, and move forward quickly while saying No a whole lot more. 

Having said that, you can expect to invest 10-60 minutes/week. Trust me when I say that deciding that this future is yours will allow you to find the amount of time that’s right for you.

I’ve never invested in myself like this before. How can I justify this expense? (Isn’t it a little self-indulgent?)

Are you wondering if it’s selfish to invest in coaching?

Here’s my question to you: What if it’s the most generous thing you could do? I’m a firm believer that the more we follow our desires, the more we’re able to help the world with our unique gifts. The world needs what you have to offer.

This is a deeply generous path of transformation you’re on, my friend!

Does this really work? (I’m guessing this depends on how much work I put into the program…)

You’re spot on! 

I have never had a client who didn’t benefit from my coaching programs. In fact, I have never had a single coaching session where the client didn’t find value.

Having said that, you are the one doing all the hard work! I’m committed to giving you my best to help you achieve your most ambitious goals. I’m confident in my effectiveness as a coach based on the words and results of my clients.

I’d like to learn more about how you can help me. Can we talk?

Yes! I’d love to connect so we can learn more about each other. 

Before we chat, give yourself permission to think bigger than you ever have before about your life. If there were no constraints—on your time, money, energy—what kind of life would you love to create? ✨
