Finding someone you feel you can trust is absolutely critical to truly benefitting from a coach. My highest priority is to provide a professional, yet comforting experience where you are free to explore, learn and grow.

One-on-One Coaching

If you are looking to make a change in your career or elsewhere in your life, but you don’t know where to start, One-on-One Coaching is for you.

Choose from programs to help you with an immediate concern or all the way up to a long-term plan. Together, we can help you be more confident, get a promotion, live more in the moment, start a new business, thrive on change — the possibilities are endless. Let’s tailor a solution to you.

Group Coaching

Looking for inspiration? Group coaching makes self-discovery and improvement an adventure to remember.

From half-day workshops to multi-day retreats to a year-long mastermind program, there’s a group coaching program to meet your needs. What all of the programs have in common is the support you gain from a great group of people all working together to achieve more.

“The best advice I ever got was to get a coach.”
– Eric Schmidt, Former Google CEO

Online Coaching

Looking for a highly convenient and focused solution? Then, online coaching is for you.

Choose from tele-coaching, live webinars and online courses. You can even seamlessly combine online coaching with the occasional in-person session.

“Catherine is direct, kind, supportive, and grounded. She has a keen ability to listen for my unspoken thoughts that are just beneath the surface, and tease them out so they can be addressed.  When she coaches me, she can step outside her own realm of experience and apply her gentle leadership to help me see things from a new perspective. Catherine has helped me understand more about my roles as teacher, facilitator, guide, and mother, and how to be true to my innate character in the process.”

Eve, Sacramento, California

“Catherine is an outstanding mentor and coach. I have had the privilege of working with Catherine over a number of years now. Not only has her experience, advise and mentoring enhanced my professional career, it has helped my personal life as well. Definitely one of the people who I intend to stay in touch with for a long time to come and would undoubtedly recommend her.”

Ahmed, Dubai, UAE

“Catherine is exactly the type of person I want in my corner when I need help focusing me toward my goals.  She is warm, caring and supportive, while at the same time, direct and powerful.  She has the ability to get right to the center of the issue and challenges me to be my best or even better!”

Ellen, Cleveland, Ohio

“It is difficult for me to summarize in a few words just how my life has changed since I started my “life coaching sessions” with you…Your style of coaching was instrumental and pivotal on “shining a light” on my gifts which have lead to my new business venture.  After many years of working in the accounting field, your coaching “pulled out from me” something I never dreamed of doing and has actually since come naturally for me.  Your continued support, guidance and encouragement are making my transition easy, fun and believable! Thank you for caring and for making sure I don’t give up on myself.”

M.G., Toronto, Ontario

“Let me express my gratitude for your participation in my career search.  Sessions with you have shifted my thinking. Your guidance helped me get rid of absurd labels, see myself in a new career, improve my time management, consistently develop my talents, and perceive my current profession from a different perspective. Your professionalism and confidence has inspired me.”

Gaya, Singapore
