I’m a creativity, meditation, and mindfulness coach helping media and technology professionals find happiness, flow, and meaning in their lives and work.
What is coaching?
Coaching is essentially transformative conversation. It’s not about advice — I’m not going to hand you answers. But through one-on-one conversations, I will help you connect with the parts of yourself that need to sparkle a little more, and help you meet your goals, whether that’s recommitting to a creative practice, finding clarity around professional choices, or whatever else needs some loving attention and/or a kick in the pants.
The clients I work with have told me that our work together has helped them:
Discover, or recover, their most meaningful values
Feel less stuck around perspectives that aren’t working anymore
Find more time and space in their lives
My approach to coaching
My coaching approach is informed by professional training through CTI, as well as extensive study and practice in Buddhist philosophy and design thinking. (These are more similar than you might think!)
My focus is on connecting you to who you are, now, with humor, clarity, compassion, and a bit of Jungian metaphor work thrown in. We’ll have fun.
Work with me
Coaching works best when we talk every two weeks or so, which provides both the time to put new approaches into practice, and enough continuity to keep our momentum going. I ask that new clients commit to three months of coaching, so that we have the time and space to do great work together.
I’m currently taking on a limited number of coaching clients. Contact me below to schedule a no-charge intro call, where we can talk more about what you’re looking for, and we can decide together if coaching with me feels like the right next step.
I’m a director of design research at The New York Times, where I help make NYT Cooking, Crosswords and Parenting even more fabulous. (Please check them out!) I’ve worked in digital innovation for many years, including several years at IDEO in San Francisco. I do coaching because I love it, and I make it fit into life alongside everything else. I wake up really early.
I live with my rad husband and awesome munchkin on the beautiful Upper West Side of Manhattan. I love impromptu dinner parties, comfortable shoes, Japanese stationery, houseplants, and making crappy zines for friends.
