Get clear and confident about your direction in life

Pace at peace, feeling clear and confident about her direction in life

Your heart aches to do what you love, but you don’t know how.

You feel unfulfilled in your life. You pay the bills, you take care of others, you carry out your responsibilities.

But you feel empty.

Where’s the magic? Where’s the meaning? Where’s the passion that sets your heart on fire? When’s the last time you truly lost yourself in doing what you love, engaged so deeply that you lost track of time?

You desperately want to follow your heart. But you don’t know how to listen to your heart, and you’re afraid that chasing your dreams will mean losing everything you hold dear.

Following your heart is scary. It will bring wild change.

But you don’t have to do it alone.

I can teach you how to listen to your heart. I can help you brave the waves of change gracefully, without going under.

I can help you find your path.

The Pathfinding Program

The Pathfinding Program is a 6-month one-on-one coaching program designed to guide you to your heart’s calling.

In this intensive, personalized program, I’ll teach you how to listen to your heart and receive reliable guidance from it. I’ll help you act on that guidance to make real changes in your life, work, and Work.

We’ll bridge that tricky gap between dream and implementation, between the profound and the practical, between woo-woo and nuts-and-bolts.

At the end of the Pathfinding Program, you will feel clear and confident about your direction in life. You will:

  • boldly state your deepest calling with no doubt in your mind or heart
  • be living wholeheartedly; your life will feel more like an adventure and less like a struggle.
  • feel fulfilled in the day-to-day steps you take in your journey
  • feel confidence in making tough decisions. Like the arrow that springs from the bow; no hesitation, no doubts.
This newfound confidence and alignment can change your life in a big way. Here are some results that my clients have gotten out of the Pathfinding Program.

“Thanks to the Pathfinding Program, I:

  • left the city I felt stuck in and moved to a city I love.
  • discovered a way to transform all this grief into my life’s work: I became a grief coach.
  • practiced saying “no” to my family, and now I finally have time to work on my art projects!
  • learned how to manage my overwhelm. Now I’m more productive every day and I feel way better!
  • got past my perfectionism that was crippling my business – I’ve now published 21 imperfect weekly newsletters and made my first offer to my audience.
  • overcame my hermit tendencies, I now leave the house to get out and connect with people.
  • got out of analysis paralysis and am now pursuing a handful of career options that I think will be really good for me.
  • worked through my fear and doubt to actually sell my art without apologizing for it.
  • found my heart’s calling – to become a chaplain – and the courage to follow it.
  • found the space, time, and energy to make music every morning, and it makes every day better.
  • let go of what I thought I wanted (starting my own business) and am now doing what I really want: writing. I’m on track to become a published sci-fi author!
And sprinkled throughout this page, you can read non-summarized versions of what some of my clients have to say about working with me, for example:

I’ll be able to help you best if:

  • You’re sensitive.
  • You know that you want to find your own unconventional path, not follow in anyone else’s footsteps.
  • You are open to reflection and change.
  • You’ve felt, at least once in your life, an inkling or an intuition that you have a path that’s calling to you. Maybe faintly, maybe strongly, maybe clearly, maybe mixed-up… but your heart, on some level, feels the pull.
If these things are true for you, I can help you.

How the Pathfinding Program works

Finding your path will take some time.

It’ll take some time to get to the root of things instead of applying a quick fix that won’t stick.

It’ll take some time to teach you how to navigate your own path. I’m not going to guide you for six months and then leave you adrift; I’m going to teach you how to become your own guide.

That’s why the Pathfinding Program is a 6-month-long intensive program where we can work together one-on-one. We’ll have:

  • 6 Pathfinding sessions, 1 hour each, once a month, via phone or Skype
    This is where the deep work gets done.
  • a weekly check-in
    I’ll email you a reminder each Friday, and you’ll reply to my weekly check-in questions when it’s convenient for you. This is so that we can make the best use of our Pathfinding sessions instead of spending the whole time catching up on what’s new for you.
  • weekly office hours and phone support as needed
    Every week, I’ll be available during scheduled “Pathfinding office hours” to answer questions that come up for you between sessions. And if you can’t make the office hours, we can schedule a 15-minute call.

What are the Pathfinding sessions like?

The Pathfinding Program isn’t one-size-fits-all. I can’t tell you what your Step A, Step B, and Step C will be, because your path is unique – you’re exploring territory that no one has ever explored before. That’s why I’ll custom tailor our one-on-one program to your individual situation and needs. But I can tell you the two foundational principles that I’ve applied to help every single one of my clients:

1. When your heart is out of alignment, gently bring your heart back into alignment.
2. When your heart is in alignment, take effective action to bring your work into the world.

Focusing only on the practical makes your life an uphill struggle. You try to force yourself to take action, regardless of whether it’s in alignment with your heart, and it’s exhausting. Eventually, you burn out.

Focusing only on the spiritual helps you find inner peace, but doesn’t answer the day-to-day questions of how to pay the bills, how to make the important decisions that are stressing you out, and how to turn your inner peace into something you can share with the world.

When we combine the two, when we bridge the profound and the practical, it’s poetry in motion. You find your flow, and your Great Work streams forth from you like a waterfall. What was once a struggle now feels like a peaceful journey, each step taking you farther along your path.

And even though the Pathfinding Program is custom tailored to your needs, there are three things I guarantee you will need for this journey. We’ll work together on:

1. Establishing a nourishing spiritual practice

A lot of people never find their path because they believe they don’t have enough energy, strength, clarity, willpower, or “oomph.” They blame themselves because they don’t “have what it takes.”

That’s bullshit.

It’s ridiculous to try to manufacture these qualities on your own – you’ll run dry and burn out. (Sound familiar?) I’ll help you tap into a renewable wellspring full of all the resources you need, by establishing a spiritual practice that nourishes you and fits into your lifestyle and worldview. This is the water that will sustain you as you travel along your path.

2. Exploring your Enneagram typeIllustration by Kelly Kingman of

The Enneagram is a powerful tool for understanding your personality type, but that’s only the beginning. The Enneagram also points you toward the path to unlock your highest potential, and gives you a map for avoiding the obstacles that could trip you up.

I’ll help you identify your Enneagram type, and we’ll explore how it can help guide you on your unique path.

3. Reliably accessing your heart’s Compass

I’ll help you find and orient your heart’s Compass, and show you how to use it to guide you toward the path that’s right for you.

You can use your Compass to help you make the best choice in a tough situation, and come out of it with clarity and confidence. No more second-guessing yourself!

My promise to you

I promise to be gentle. If a kick in the pants is called for, I promise to kick as gently and compassionately as possible. (: I promise to treat everything you say as sacred and confidential. I know it’s hard, and I want to help. I know that you have a light inside you that’s bursting to get out, and I want to help you shine!

How much does it cost?

The 6-month Pathfinding Program is $2850, payable either in one chunk, or in 6 installments of $475/month. Either way is totally fine.

Is now the right time?

Have you ever heard an inspirational story of someone who turned their life around? Of someone who followed their heart, focused on what’s really important in life, and chose to live a wild, crazy, meaningful life?

I’ll bet you I know the turning point of their story. I bet it goes a little something like this:

  • “I was in a car crash and almost died. That was when I decided to turn my life around…”
  • “I was diagnosed with cancer. The doctors told me I only had 6 months to live. That was when I stopped trying to live the life others expected me to…”
  • “I lost a loved one. That was when I realized that I only have this one wild and precious life…”

Are you waiting for the car crash?

You don’t have to wait until the Universe smacks you with a clue-by-four and forces you onto your path. You can choose to take your first step with your eyes wide open, on your terms.

You can choose to find your own path. Right now.

I can’t guarantee it will be easy, but I can guarantee it will be much less painful than a car crash. (:
