You’ve read all the advice about working smarter, work-life balance, time management, writing a lot, and so on. But you’re still struggling to implement that advice in your day-to-day life. Maybe old habits are hard to break; maybe your life just seems way too busy for those tips to work. Perhaps your imposter syndrome is whispering “you can’t do it.” This is where customized support through one-on-one coaching can really start to make a difference.
One-on-one coaching sessions are perfect for gaining clarity, revving up your motivation, setting concrete action steps, and making real changes to the way you approach work and life. Coaching offers a completely personalized experience. If you’re ready to leave old habits and excuses behind, coaching might be just right for you.
First, you’re always welcome to reach out over email or instant message to ask questions! You can check out my blog to learn more about some of my areas of expertise. This post will tell you more about how academics can benefit from coaching. And this guide breaks down what coaching does, and why it’s different from therapy or consulting.
Second, fill out a short application to work with me. Don’t worry, you’re not making a commitment yet. But this brief questionnaire will help me get to know a little about you before we get started.
Third, once I have your application we can set up a time for a free Strategy Session call!
During our call you can learn more about me, my coaching and advising services, and start to clarify your goals, vision, and priorities. This is not a sales call. I would never put you on the spot or ask you to commit to a coaching package without time for reflection. After the call, I’ll send you a summary of our chat via email, along with some options for moving forward. Then you can let me know how or if you’d like to proceed. In coaching, the ball is always in the client’s court. 😉

Custom packages: price varies
If none of these options looks right for you, I’m happy to discuss the possibility of a custom package. Custom packages might include a combination of coaching sessions and consulting work (e.g., reviewing a grant proposal or CV). Or they might have a custom time frame that suits your needs. A free strategy session is a great opportunity to discuss options.
Sliding scale rates
For grad students and those who are precariously employed, I typically take 20% off the posted rate. I’m always happy to talk about payment options (e.g. smaller payment increments). Please feel free to reach out and ask.
Professional expense accounts
For faculty with access to professional expense/professional development accounts, you may be able to get reimbursed for services like coaching as they relate to your career. Check with your institution. I provide invoices and receipts for all payments.
