Embodied Leadership Coaching
Greetings! I am delighted to announce I am now offering Embodied Leadership coaching! I look forward to providing support and collaboration as you move toward your goals and vision for personal and collective healing and liberation.
Scope and Nature of Coaching Relationship
Coaching is a partnership between the coach and the client in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires the client to maximize personal and professional potential. In my coaching practice, I draw from a multi-disciplinary well of spiritual and somatic modalities that support you on your path. I tailor each session based on your needs and intentions, along with what we both intuit will best serve you. As a highly sensitive intuitive empath with 14 years of non-profit leadership experience, 10 years leading private and group yoga and meditation practice, recovering from trauma and burn-out, and confronting internalized privilege and oppression, my approach is compassionate, non-judgmental, direct, insightful, gentle, and supportive. I hold space and meet you where are in your personal growth and leadership journey, supporting you in aligning your daily life with your values and vision for yourself and the world.
My integrative and holistic practice draws on various modalities including somatic awareness coaching, racial healing and antiracist racial identity development coaching and support, trauma-informed therapeutic yoga, guided meditation and relaxation, Ayurvedic lifestyle wisdom, boundary work and communication skill development, codependency recovery support, creative expression support, intuitive guidance, and spiritual coaching.
Before and during your initial session, we will assess the following:
Your primary personal and/or professional concerns, needs, and intentions
Your current lifestyle, self-care, diet, routine, and body/spirit/mind practices
After your first and subsequent sessions, I may give you follow-up resources and support:
An individualized suggested daily routine based on your assessment. Suggested home practices may include breathing, meditation, yoga, creative prompts, journaling, suggested reading, recommendations for nature-based connection/exploration, somatic exercises, and/or nutritional recommendations.
A personalized toolkit of trauma-informed, intersectional, spiritual resources for your healing/organizing/professional life work.
Healing, growth, and development take time, with progress sometimes happening quickly and other times not. Because change happens gradually over time, I request an initial three-month commitment. This will allow our coaching relationship to develop and be a powerful force and source of support and encouragement in your life. Upon completion of this three month period, coaching will convert to a month-to-month or session-by-session basis. My monthly coaching scope and rate will remain the same for subsequent months. My individual session rate is $120/hour if less frequent coaching is desired at any given point after the initial three month period.
After our initial session on, our agreement includes 4 sessions per month. Ideally, we will establish a consistent weekly time that works well for both of us. Your initial session will be 90 minutes and subsequent sessions will be 60 minutes and can be done in-person, over the phone, or by Skype. You may call or text me between our scheduled sessions if you need a sounding board, have an acute conflict, issue, or decision, and/or you’d like to share a success with me. I do not bill for additional time of this type, but ask that you help keep the calls contained and limited to 15-20 minutes.
Payment Terms and Fees
My monthly private leadership coaching fee is $500 a month due by the 1st of each month or in one full payment of $1500 on the date of our initial session for all three months. I accept check, cash, or Paypal payments. Starting in October 2018 I will begin reserving two sliding scale coaching spots. If you are interested in this option, please email me to discuss further.
There is a short inclined walkway and 10 stairs up to my house and my space is on the 2nd floor of the house. If stairs are hard for you, please let me know one week in advance of your appointment so I can make arrangements to see you somewhere accessible for you.
I see many clients who are chemically and scent sensitive. I am as well. Please come scent-free (perfumes, oils, laundry detergent etc), so I can keep my space a healthy space for everybody. For more info on what this means, please check out Leah Lakshmi Piepzna Samarsinha’s piece here. If there are any other access needs you think it would be helpful for me to know, please let me know below.
Rescheduling an appointment is easy with 48 hours advance notice. If you need to cancel a session with advanced notice, we will make it up at another time so you have all your scheduled sessions during the month, or add additional time to appointments already scheduled. Unless it is due to an emergency, missing an appointment without 48 hours notice is considered a fully paid appointment.
The Coaching Relationship
Throughout this coaching relationship we will engage in direct and personal conversations about your life and work. You can count on me to be honest, empathic, reflective, and direct in asking questions, offering feedback, reflective listening, and making requests. The coach relationship is professional and completely confidential. I will not be telling anyone you are my client and I will not reveal the content of our sessions to anyone. You are free to share whatever you choose with anyone. If I ever say or do something that doesn’t feel right, please bring it to my attention during or as soon as possible after the session. As your coach, I am 100% committed to your growth and transformation.
